Responses from students all over the country as to what students miss the most, and what they are looking forward to in the upcoming fall semester.

I Asked 16 Students What They Miss Most About Being On Campus, And Here's What They Said

As the 2019-2020 school year is coming to an end, students are looking forward to the possible reopening of colleges and universities come the fall semester. Most universities have implemented distance learning since the middle of March. What once was just supposed to be a short, two-week quarantine period, quickly changed to cutting in-person classes for the rest of the spring semester, as well as summer. The "stay-at-home" orders are being lifted or reduced in some states, and students are hopeful to re-integrate into "normal" college life in the Fall. I asked college students from all over the country what they miss most about being on campus since now they're stuck in quarantine, and what they are looking forward to come the fall semester.

1. "My Friends!!! I'm looking forward to independence when I move back into the dorms!" - Hailey, FGCU

2. "Not having strict RA's at home lol" - Jalina GCU

3. "I miss having my own place to live, and I'm excited to graduate in August."- Aurely, FGCU

4. "Friends and seeing people" Theresa, CU Denver

5. "My boyfriend and being in Florida" - Emily, FGCU

6. "My friends and actually being in person for classes, that's what I miss and look forward to"- Alexis, CSU

7. "I miss seeing my friends every day and being stupid"- Ali, CSU

8. "Friends <3 and having more freedom"- Isabel, FGCU

9. "My friends" - Josie, WCU

10. "A schedule and being around my friends everyday"- Hannah, AU

11. "The girls jk I miss just going to class and having a routine to my day"- Dario, MSU Denver

12. "Foco :( "- Shannon, CSU

13. "What I miss the most is leaving the crib. I'm not looking forward to anything because we are going to have online classes which suck." Roberto- MSU Denver

14. "Growing, supporting, and celebrating with my best friends!!" Emma, CU

15. "Walking to classes. Sounds stupid, but it was a time to myself everyday to relax"- Tyler, UW

16. "I miss being on our beautiful campus and enjoying the walks to class with friends. For Fall, I can't wait to be in classes I enjoy and start a new journey as President of the Equestrian team!" - Cameron, FGCU

Opening this question up to other students in similar situations helped me realize that we are all going through the same thing. We are all eager, yet anxious, for school to start up again. For me, I miss being within walking distance of my friends. Luckily, most of us live within a few hours of each other, but it's still hard for us to find time to make that drive with quarantine, summer classes, and virtual extra-curriculars still going on. I'm most looking forward to actually getting to room with my friends next year. I didn't know anyone coming into my first year of college, so I had a random roommate. I'm excited to finally be living with my pals and make some exciting memories.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
