  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Partying will not get you a degree

Waking up for classes can be a hard enough task, without the extra hassle of a hangover from the previous night.

Not to say that when you are in college you should not attend any parties; but you should know how and when to party. If you have a class at 8 a.m. Thursday, it would not be a good idea to stay out late drinking Wednesday. People just need to know how to party responsibly. For example, the best party days are the ones where you have late classes the next day or on the weekend when there are no classes.

A lot of students do horribly in classes because they are not aware you have to study on some nights and give up a night of drinking in order to do well in your classes. Some freshmen have the idea in their heads that college is all about parties and getting drunk. Part of that may even be cosher. Just don?t party on the wrong days and get out of hand when you do party.

Another problem that can occur due to late night outings is aggravating your roommate. Not all people are party animals, therefore be considerate of your roommate?s sleeping habits as well. It is probably a good idea to check with your roommate when you move in and see if he/she is a late nighter or if they like to go to bed early. It is not the favorite task of a new roommate to be taking care of their upchucking, stumbling to the bathroom, and turning in your sleep, kind of roommate until you pass out.

As mentioned before, classes can be hard enough to wake up for, therefore there is no need to get drunk on a weeknight. You will probably forget to set your alarm for class or oversleep and miss it anyway.

Hopefully, most people are here to get a degree and worry about their future rather than wonder where the next big bash is going to take place and who the designated driver will be.

Many times students get so caught up in the party scene that they forget the real reason they are in college. College is not a career, it is simply a way for us to obtain the career we want after four or so years.

The more partying we do at college, the more we are delaying our real future and making money that will give us the life we want.Once you are out of college and in the real world, you will be able to use your payc hecks to not only pay rent and other expenses, but you will also occasionally be able to go out with your friends and have some drinks.

However, if students want to learn how to be responsible adults, the best time to learn may be during your college years when you have more time to budget and more options available.

Concider the type of person you will be in the future if you start slacking in college, skipping class and partying when you have other important obligations, such as your studies?

You are here to benefit your future, not to see how many keg stands you can do in one night.We need to take the time we have at college to learn to put away our high school partying ways, grow up and start concentrating on your futures.
