7 Of The Best Places To Go On UNC's Campus If You Just Really Need To Cry Right Now

Spring break is over, and summer approaches. Summer....and finals.

To maximize the catharsis of every crying episode leading up to finals season, try these iconic campus locations. There's nothing quite like weeping in public to help you overcome stress!

1. Your professor's office

Giphy

It's time to confront the source. If your homework/exams are stressing you out to this point, the professor deserves to suffer, too. Make the rest of the semester awkward—there's not much of it left anyway.

2. The Pit

Giphy

The Pit floods every time it rains (or sprinkles, even) anyway, so your tears won't make much of a difference. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be serenaded by a pit preacher while you weep.

3. Top of Lenoir

Giphy

The pros are clear: no one will notice you bawling because it's so busy, you can drown your sorrows in Cocoa Puffs, and the CDS workers are nice enough to cheer you up.

Cons? Can't think of any.

4. That weird long room thing on the second floor of Davis

Giphy

If you're a loud crier, you'll fit right in with all the other people there who don't know how to shut up. :)

5. In class, wherever that may be

Giphy

Seminar? Cry. Lecture hall? Cry. Studio? Cry. Lab? Weep.

Maybe your breakdown will reassure other students that they're not the only ones struggling this semester.

6. The Old Well

Giphy

I mean, we have to refill it somehow, right? This university has survived on the tears of stressed-out students for centuries.

Also, if you've been crying for a while you might be dehydrated. Drink some Old Well water—maybe a 4.0 is still possible even if it's not FDOC.

7. On the treadmill right in front of the windows at Rams Head Gym.

Giphy

I mean, it's like you have your own stage up there. Let it all out while you get that cardio in; college is all about learning to multi-task effectively.

If none of these locations does it for you, I also found this alternative list of places to cry on campus if you're just having an all-around personal crisis.

Good luck on end-of-the-semester assignments and final exams, fellow Tar Heels. We're all crying together!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
