Why Fall Semester is the Best Semester

It's hard to believe that fall semester is here already, that we have passed welcome week and the first weeks of classes are underway.

Why Fall Semester is the Best Semester

I'm here to talk about one thing that we all know is true: why fall semester is arguably the best semester. Here is a list of ten reasons why fall semester is the greatest thing known to undergrads.

1. Football. Fall semester is filled with one of my favorite collegiate sports, football. If you're like me and many others who attend state schools, you know one thing: Football in the fall is huge. Even if your school isn't the greatest at football, you will still find yourself out there cheering on the team every Saturday afternoon.

2. Tailgating. With football comes the magical event before every game, and that's tailgating. Getting up early and making your way to the tailgate fields with your brothers and sisters is something that you'll never forget. There's just something about playing corn hole while music blares all around you that is oddly satisfying.

3. Philanthropies. Fall semester is chock full of philanthropies. It seems like every weekend, you are waking up early to get together with your waterdaze or bust team to prepare for a day full of slip n' slides and watermelon tosses. 

4. The weather. Fall is my favorite time of year. You get to enjoy being on campus with all of your friends, weekends are spent in each others back yards hanging out and enjoying the weather. Fall is a perfect excuse to get a group of people together, hang out and relax in each others porches and yards. 

5. The nostalgia. We've just spent an entire three months back at home working our part time jobs, hanging out with our families. Now that we're back at school, everything is fresh and exciting again. People are moving into new houses and apartments and things are switching up from the same routine you developed over the summer. 

6. Classes. I know what you're thinking: class is on this list? We now have something real to do and something to make us productive again. No more sitting in front of the tv for hours after work. We are starting school again and everyone is happy to actually feeling productive again. 

7. Traditions. Coming back to campus means being back around the traditions that take place on your campus. I know I took a detour to walk by frog baby and I've seen numerous people sticking gum on the gum tree. We all love these traditions, no matter how weird they may seem to other people. 

8. Being back also means being back with your chapter. Maybe you saw some of your closest sisters or brothers over the summer, but now you all are back in the same city and probably living in the same house even. You're gearing yourself up for all the stuff your chapter has set for the semester! 

9. Formals and socials. Fall semester means the start of many formals and socials. There's nothing better than Thursday night spontos or doing mock recruitment with one of your favorite sororities or fraternities. Everyone loves formals, especially away formals. Getting out of town for a weekend is fun no matter who you are. 

10. New experiences. With every semester comes new people, new friends and new experiences. Fall semester is the start of that and the start of another great year in college. 

So move over spring semester, fall semester has officially blown you out of the water.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
