On the day the world ended, Amy Bullimore sat in the locker room a little longer than usual to soak it all in. She cried and reflected as her coach tried to put the team’s season in perspective.

It had been one year and six days since the fifth-ranked Ohio Northern women’s basketball team had lost a game. They finished the 2016-17 season 30-1, losing to 10th-ranked Christopher Newport in an intense Elite Eight matchup at King Horn Sports Center last March.

Mass shootings. It is something that is a part of American culture and it shouldn't be. Even as I am typing this article, I am hearing of another shooting that has happened in California where at least four people have died.

Inexperience proves costly in ONU’s regional final loss to Wittenberg

The way volleyball works, there are very little breaks come tournament time. The opening weekend consists of three rounds, played on consecutive days, in which eight teams arrive to a regional destination but only one makes it out alive.

Making it out of the first weekend is a draining endeavor. Coaches must prepare for three different opponents in three days, with less than 24 hours in between each match and each opponent tougher than the last. Players must perform at their peak on short rest, staying mentally sharp during the biggest weekend of their volleyball careers.

I am adult. This is college, a place where you grow and learn.  

So, grow up and be an adult. Buy the parking pass. Park where you are required and nowhere else. Communicate with ONU Public Safety when there is a challenge, or when you need help.

College is where you learn about yourself and make friends. College also prepares you for life—a.k.a. the real world.
