You Must Be Crazy If You Want To Be A Belle

It's true, it takes a special women in order to be a Belle and if that means being crazy I wouldn't want to be anything else.

You Must Be Crazy If You Want To Be A Belle
Kelsey Trimble

Why would you ever want to go to that small school across the street from the amazing University of Notre Dame? It must be annoying to only have to be a part of the large school feel when you want and have a safe haven of a castle to go to when you just want the small feel.

And don't you want to feel the pressure to actually have to look put together every time you leave your dorm? I'm sure going to class and the dining hall in pajamas is a total drag! And come on... ALL GIRLS! You have to be absolutely crazy to want to live with all of your best friends having so much fun every night, one big sorority.

What kind of college student would ever want to be in a class with less than 90 or more students and a professor that actually cares if you don't show up to class? It has to be annoying to have a teacher reach out if they notice you were upset during class, right? Or email you after you play a good game for your team. Who would ever want the feeling of having a family away from home - that's all way to personal.

That French cross is everywhere you look, why would you want such a symbolic thing all over your clothes and signs reminding you of where you are and the Sisters that worked hard to make it so you could be there?

And last, but most certainly not least...that class ring. You have to be so annoyed when you go out in public and have so many grads come up and talk to you about the amazing time they had at Saint Mary's and how they wish they could go back.

Knowing that there are Belles always there to help you must be the worst feeling to have.

The truth is you do have to be crazy to be a Belle, but I love being crazy and so should everyone else.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
