How to not look like

f

a freshman.

reshman year is a magical time where you get a lot of freedom, meet a lot of people and make a lot of mistakes. All of these experiences are unavoidable and just part of college, but what is avoidable (partially, anyway) is looking like a freshman. It is easy to spot them a mile away. They are too excited when they are buying school supplies at the Alamo, and they are wearing lanyards around their necks with their student ID in a Velcro holder. So freshmen, unless you want to stick out like a sore thumb and have some senior ask you if you need your muffin buttered, please heed my advice. The easiest thing you can do is go to YouTube and watch the “Sh*t ISU students don’t say” video. It was a sensation last year mostly because it was dead-on. It will not make complete sense until you have been a Redbird for a while, but something you can learn from

it, for starters, is that “Schroeder Hall” is pronounced “Shray-der”. Do not ask why, this is just how it is. Speaking of Schroeder, you might have classes there. Go to them. You should be going to the majority of your classes, and you should be doing your best to get good grades. Someone is paying good money for you to come here and get an education, so take that seriously and don’t assume that you can just skip class — that’s a total freshman move. In addition, whenever you are drinking, either at a party or in your dorm room, please refrain from taking pictures of you with whatever your booze of choice is. It screams “amateur hour” and you will regret those pictures in future years. Sometimes you might need to take the bus somewhere. There is the BloomingtonNormal bus and the Redbird bus that goes around campus. Do not wait for the bus on

Sunday because they do not run on Sundays. One place you can walk to is the conveniently located Rec center. A heads up though — only the lockers at the very front of the locker room are for use (at least in the women’s locker room), the ones in the back are for those highly motivated individuals who are renting a locker for the semester, or people like me who rent one as motivation but then never go. Speaking of the Rec, it is not a place to hang out. Go there, do your work out and leave so you’re not taking up space. Otherwise, you might get sneered at as being a freshman. Would not want that, right? Although it may seem like being a freshman is something to be ashamed of, it really is not. We were all there once and my favorite year of college was freshman year. So if I am mean to you because you are still a teenager, maybe it is just because I am jealous that I am not a freshman anymore. n

Don’t be a

nightmare roommate ! Erin Hogg Daily Vidette Features Editor

Looking back on my college career, the biggest thing that sticks out is good and not so good times with roommates I’ve had over the years. A few drifted in and out of my life while some stayed, for better or worse. As a senior graduating this December and after many struggles and battles with roommates, but also memorable and lasting friendships, I can offer some advice to those entering dorm life for the very first time. Whether you are rooming with close friends, acquaintances or complete strangers, the most important idea to keep in mind to not turn into a nightmare roommate is the golden rule: Treat your roommate like you’d want to be treated. Living in a confined space with one to three or more people is cramped and it will be uncomfortable for everyone, at least at first. Having your television turned up loud, music blasting, lights on late at night, constant Skyping and other activities that you may enjoy in the privacy in your house will not fly when your roommate needs sleep or has an early class. Using headphones, a small desk light that can be turned away from sleeping roommates and turning off video games or televisions after an agreed time will keep everyone happy. While it may sound silly at first, the roommate bill of rights given to each room on the first day is a must. My freshman year, I roomed with complete strangers so we all decided to lay ground rules. Later when there were issues, we brought up the agreement we all signed and that usually solved problems. Safety and crime is a big issue in the dorms. Make sure you lock your door every time you leave your room, even if it’s just for a second. If your roommate’s laptop got stolen because you

failed to lock the door, that could cause major issues with trust. Always ask to borrow things and return them quickly. I’ve been in situations where things of mine went missing and turned up in another roommate’s dresser or desk, and it would make me question their character. If you are bringing a special someone back to the room, a simple heads up is appropriate. Just make sure if you do ask for some alone time that it is a reasonable request and make sure to return the favor if your roommate needs it as well. You don’t have to keep your roommate totally involved with your private life, but walking in on your roommate is probably one of the most awkward situations you can encounter. Cleanliness for both ladies and gentlemen is a huge issue in the dorms. Do your laundry on a weekly basis because the smell of dirty clothes can ruin a room. Make sure you are taking out your trash when it gets full or starts to smell, buy cheap Lysol and dust wipes to keep furniture clean and encourage your roommates to do the same with their areas. It’s also a good idea to vacuum or Swiffer the floors once in a while, and I know my roommate borrowed a vacuum from the Watterson staff without any issues. Finally, be open to new things and change. The people you live with could be your best friend, a good roommate or a complete disaster, as I have found. They may be very similar to you but may also turn out to have the complete opposite living style. Regardless, by keeping a cool head if arguments do happen, respecting their space and taking care of small issues in the beginning, you can prevent becoming a nightmare roommate. n

places freshmen should see Logan Zimmerman Daily Vidette News Editor

Now that you’re away from home and living by yourself, it’s easy to understand if you’re not quite sure how to spend all of your time in Bloomington– Normal. Here are a few suggestions of local spots to check out around the Twin Cities area and near your residence hall to help you adjust to your new surroundings.

1

Uptown Circle Fulfill all of your dining and entertainment needs right next to campus. Just watch out for the drivers who don’t know how to use the roundabout.

2

Constitution Trail Don’t let those “freshman 15” get ahold of you. Take charge and hit the trail.

3

Normal Theater Kick back and catch a classic flick on a budget at an old school cinema.

4

U.S. Cellular Coliseum The Coliseum is your place for all your concerts, sporting events and larger venue events.

5

Redbird Arena & Kaufman Field Get your adrenaline pumping and cheer on our Redbirds as they try to chalk up another one in the win column.

6

ISU Planetarium Space out and see some stars anytime during the day at your very own campus planetarium.

Fun Things to do without booze Ariana M. Taylor Daily Vidette Features Editor

a

s moms drive their minivans around campus looking for their child’s dorm building on move-in day, they may be slightly disturbed by the “drop your daughter off here” and the infamous “you honk we drink” posters dangling off the banisters of upperclassmen residences. Nonetheless, ISU provides numerous alcohol-free events that lessen the pressure of consuming alcohol. To excite first-year students about attending a university, current and former students enjoy sharing the false myth that college life is merely about “throwing back bottles” and partying. However, the purpose of attending college is to become more educated and better prepared for employment in the future. Although students of legal age take pleasure in participating in alcohol-related fun when time permits, there are numerous ways to have a good time while being sober. Whether it’s in a residence hall, the Bone Student Center or the Bowling and Billiards Center, ISU typically offers an exciting program for students to partake in every weekend. As an alternative to drinking, students can maintain sobriety by gathering friends and attending a weekend event, or by simply going to see a movie or a theater production. Consuming alcohol frequently is not only expensive but is hazardous to your health. Alcohol, especially beer, contributes to the “freshman 15” – the amount of weight often gained during the first year of college. To add, there are consequences to underage drinking, such as a $275 fine for a first offense. Moreover, students should not feel compelled to stay on campus. The Bloomington–Normal buses are free to ISU students and travel to exciting places like Eastland Mall, restaurants and more. Alcohol-free events allow students to save money while sustaining full awareness of their actions. Deciding to stay sober is not an exemplification of cowardice but essentially a sign of strength and maturity. Students who are interested in participating in sober fun should look for events on the university calendar at events.illinoisstate.edu. n

ORGANIZATIONS

Ariana M. Taylor Daily Vidette Features Editor

t

he thought of balancing school work and joining organizations may seem overwhelming, but keeping busy enables students to stay more organized and focused on success. There are over 300 registered student organizations that you can join in order to network, grow and find new acquaintances. The majority of the people you attend college with will graduate with a B.S. or B.A. just like you. Although they may be seeking a different field, your peers are sharing the same educational experience that you are which makes it difficult to stand out. Becoming a part of an organization not only allows you to socialize with diverse individuals, but it also enhances your résumé. Being away from home for the first time and adjusting to a new environment can be difficult,but organizations advised by Diversity Advocacy, such as Asian Pacific American Coalition (APAC), Association of Latin American Students (ALAS), Black Student Union (BSU), and Pride, provide a home away from home.

Of course there are various Greek organizations that students may pursue, but remember that becoming a part of a sorority or fraternity is a serious matter and a lifelong commitment. There are many different types of Greek organizations and each one is founded on different beliefs and values. For more information on Greek life, visit deanofstudents.illinoisstate.edu/students/get-involved/greek-affairs. The question is: with 381 current RSOs which one should you join? Find your passion, whether it’s dancing, singing, writing, etc., and search for an organization that focuses on your particular interest. Most importantly, if you have something that you are passionate about and there is no RSO for it, feel free to create your own organization. When seeking out an organization, students should visit illinoisstate.collegiatelink. net/organizations and read the information attached to each society. n

SAFETY TIPS FOR DUMMIES Erin Hogg Daily Vidette Features Editor

t

he excitement of living on your own for the first time on a large campus is truly a unique experience. I can look back on those first times out making new friends and meeting more people than I ever imagined and say I have no regrets. However, while everyone is here to have fun, make memories and also get an education, the awful truth is that there could be a time where a crime is committed and you will be affected. Theft, assault, rape and other crimes can happen anywhere, and ISU is no exception. Theft in dorm rooms and apartments happen and can be a crime of opportunity. Make sure all doors and windows are locked at all times. Even if you are there but asleep, someone can easily step in quickly enough to take a computer, phone or money and leave before you know it. If you are out late, do not carry much cash or credit cards with you. Even in class or at Milner, do not leave your backpack, purse or laptop unattended. Assault is also an issue on many college campuses. ISU Police do their best to keep students safe, but incidents can happen. If you go out to a party, go out in a group and return with a group. Both girls and guys should abide by this rule at all times. Avoid walking home in the early hours of the morning, and if you do end up staying somewhere late, it’s best to sleep over and swallow your pride on the walk home later in the morning. When walking on campus, take note of the blue 911 call boxes and never be afraid to use one if you feel threatened. Redbird Safe Walk is an excellent resource that assists students, faculty and staff who want an escort walking to and from on-campus locations, bus stops and apartments close to campus. They can be reached at (309) 438-WALK. Also, NiteRide can get you to where you want to go late at night from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. for free as long as you have your student ID. Rape and sexual assault are also issues for every member of the ISU community. ISU Police will be offering free Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) classes for adult females this fall. Registration can be completed through police.illinoisstate.edu. Make sure the doors in your dorm or apartment are locked at all times, especially at night. If you are in immediate danger, yell “fire” as loud as you can as it will draw attention and surprise an attacker. The biggest way one can stay safe is to avoid alcohol as it could lead to date rape and other situations. If you do drink, do not let anyone get something unopened for you. If you want to date someone, make sure you meet them in a public area and do not open your door to strangers. As always, keep your social networking profiles private and never include your home address in posts. While it may be easy to tag your location, think twice about who will see where you are at that exact moment. All of these tips and more can be found on police.illinoisstate.edu. Never be afraid to file a report or call 911 if you are in danger. Not everyone on ISU’s campus is dangerous, but you never know who you might encounter when you least expect it. n police.illinoisstate.edu/crime_prevention_safety_tips/sexual_assault.shtml
