Finals week is already hectic enough without the impending doom of having to pack up your entire room and move out and every single year hustling through the week trying to pass classes and think of a new way to fit the mini fridge into their four-door sedan.

Having everything that is stressful land in the same week of the semester is hard. It can make life even harder than it needs to be. That is why I have a few good tips on how to pack up at the end of the year. It will always have to happen around exams, but if you plan accordingly, you can save yourself some time.

We’ve reached that time of year. It is finals week. Finals week is a jam-packed week of exams, projects, papers and more. For all college students, it is a week fueled by coffee and sleep deprivation. We have all been there, and it can be so bad for everyone’s mental and physical health. Everyone expects finals week to be a stressed filled panicked week where no one sleeps. It has become a campus culture to freak out and makes it known that you are freaking out. I’m here to tell you there is a different way that will result in more sleep and less money spent at the library coffee shop.

Why we won’t be buying houses anytime soon

Millennials are moving back home and staying there longer. Relying on parents is more practical for today’s young adults because we stay in school longer and don’t have dependents of our own yet. Millennials make less and have different goals. This lifestyle is the result of the millennial goal of self-fulfillment.

Rather than prioritizing stability or starting a family, millennials first desire to establish careers that make them happy. That’s not to say that millennials aren’t making money or starting families, we’re just doing it later than previous generations.

For the love of philanthropy

Philanthropy events are abundant on college campuses. Every month is packed with money-raising events for any cause imaginable. Greek life on Ohio Northern’s campus heavily focuses on holding these philanthropic events. ONU’s Greek community prides themselves on having multiple chapters representing many different causes throughout the university. The list is long. Some chapters only represent one cause while others can represent upwards of five or six.

Starting out the year for college students is a magical time with a bank account filled all the way to the top. After spending the fall semester breaking into the fund that a summer job brought and working through winter break to build up a small amount of what you lost, something important comes to mind… Budgeting.

Creating a budget is something no one ever really wants to do but for people with such limited funds, like college students, it's super important to decide what to spend money on and how much is allowed.

Students from across the world will be participating in a Global Youth Climate Strike on Friday, Mar. 15. I’ve seen initiatives from countries as far and wide as Hong Kong and New Zealand.

Exam days are the scariest thing for all college students. These long-winded tests pop-up, what seems like, out of nowhere just to scare you into focusing more in class. The scariest one is the very first exam for a new class. “Why not final exams?” most people will ask. Finals aren’t scary because you have practiced that professor's method of testing and know what to expect. The very first exam is like falling over a ledge and hoping a net will catch you.

Polar Bear Up

The saying “Polar Bear Up” seems to resurface every winter as our campus debates just how cold is too cold for class.  

The National Weather Service’s Special Weather Statement says,

Seeking Artistic Professionalism; What I learned from spending a weekend with an international solo violist.

Do you remember the moment that you realized what you wanted to be in life? What was that moment; when was it? Did it happen yet?

For Brett Deubner, an international solo violist, that moment was clear. Nine years ago, Brett walked onto the stage in front of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra to perform a then-new viola concerto composed by Lalo Schifrin. Looking out at the audience, and hearing their applause, Brett was filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment he hadn’t felt before, and at that moment he knew he wanted to keep doing that for the rest of his life.
