Why Going To The Same School As Your Parents Is Helpful
Today

Going to college is one of the biggest transitions many students will go through in their lives. A lot of students decide to go to the same school that their parents attended. It turns out, there are lots of benefits to attending the same university as your parents, and even your family members.

1. They give you good connections.

Since they went there "back in the day," they have all their friends that work in various job industries. This is extremely beneficial to you when looking for a job or internship.

2. They always have awesome stories

When they went to school the rules were not as strict. So basically they got away with lots of things that we can't. Hearing about all the things that they did is always a good time for everyone.

3. They help you learn the ins and outs of the school

Your parents are always your best guides through school, but knowing that they attended the same university as you really helps. They can tell you who you need to talk to in admissions or who to take for classes. It's a big benefit.

4. They give you ideas of crazy things to do in your downtime

This ties in with the awesome stories mentioned above. Whenever you are bored at school you have your parents' crazy ideas to fall back on. Although things are not exactly the same you can still attempt to do the crazy things that they did back in the day.

5. They are always willing to come and visit.

Family is always willing to come see you at school. They have friends who live in the area, or if it is a special event, then some people will travel to the school to see one another and spend time on campus.

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.

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.
