Deciding on a college is one of the biggest decisions that you will ever make. There are so many factors that go into deciding where you will continue on your education. Some of these may including attending a school that offers the program that you plan to go into, good athletics, location to home, or even affordability. Each aspect holds its own importance when deciding on what college to go to. However, one school that holds a special place in my heart is Washington State University. Washington State will meet every expectation that one may have going into college, and here are five reasons why every high school senior should consider WSU.

1. The college town

Going to school in a college town was one of the things that most appealed to me about WSU. Everything in Pullman has coug flags, banners, or the crimson and gray that WSU students hold so close to their hearts. Walking around a town with so much pride for their school is such a dream.

2. The school spirit

Once a Coug always a Coug is a saying that rings so true. The biggest draw to WSU is the fact that there are people all over the world ready to rep the cougars and support them. In Costa Rica, during the Holiday Bowl, 40 people gathered behind a building to watch a projection of Washington State play football. This is so powerful and more than you can ever ask from your college.

3. There's something for everyone

Whether you're interested in sports, theater, art, or math, there is something for everyone at WSU. I have met so many people from just going to club meetings that I didn't even think I would be interested in. WSU offers tons of opportunities to get involved in many different ways.

4. CFS is like no other

Cougar football has been on another level this year and everyone is so proud of our Coug football players. CFS is something that no one at other schools will ever get to experience. Everyone is yelling, cheering, and just having a great time. The pride for our school runs deep and that is incredibly apparent on football Saturdays.

5. WSU brings the best friendships

There is no place on earth like WSU and people at this school know that. It brings us closer. Finding your forever friends is hard, but WSU allows you such a great opportunity to do this.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
