"Hi! I've read a few of your answered/asks about Hollins and I was wondering if you could talk about your experience coming from out of state? I'd be coming from Texas so I'm not really sure how the whole travel aspect works? Like would you fly and ship your stuff? Drive all those hours? Take a train/bus and buy stuff there??? Thanks in advance! (:"

Hey there! I was lucky enough to be coming from a (barely) driveable distance (about 700 miles or twelve hours straight driving). I had friends from as far as Colorado and California (and Nepal and Afghanistan) who typically flew and shipped five or so boxes (which is typically all you can realistically fit in your room). Some international students bought stuff in Roanoke. Once you’ve got all your stuff there, Housing & Residence Life allows students to store up to 5 cardboard boxes (up to 18”x18”x18”) for free on campus. I believe the rules have changed so that if you are a student from the US, you have to get permission from the Director of HRL and you have to be living at least 550 miles away from Hollins. It’s not too difficult as long as you’re on top of it and request it as soon as it’s available.

There are also plenty of storage businesses in the area. Many students choose to share storage units and split the cost. 

I did fly once or twice for spring break. My decisions were mostly cost-driven and I had to figure out if it was cheaper to fly or for my parents to pay for the gas,  hotel, etc. 

There are also students who end up staying on campus over breaks and the summer. It costs money (although summer is a bit different if you’re working on campus), but it is an option.

Also, I feel like this might be helpful to mention — everyone gets homesick. Most people try to hide it, but, like, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. You may not be homesick — that does happen. But also be prepared for it. Many students find it helpful to have a set schedule for times to talk with their family/Skype with their pet/whatever. I called home every single day. Others are more comfortable with once a week. Do what works for you. Many students feel in the first couple weeks that they’re so homesick that they’re not ready for college or whatever. I highly recommend fighting that. Use your resources — your RA, making new friends (you’re all in the same boat, it’s okay), religion/spirituality (if that’s something you do), exercise, Health & Counseling, whatever you need. 

I hope this was helpful! Good luck!

That’s the exact spot where I realized that she played the mom on suite life of zack and cody

thats the exact moment i realised sam had no idea what a ‘mom voice’ was

who gave you the right

Sam didn’t have a mom? Excuse me,

Let’s not ferget the parenting skills he displayed with a baby, we can only assume he honed those from when he took care of Sam:

This hurts

Hey, White America, You Need To Hear What These Ferguson Kids Have To Say

In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several Ferguson children lampoon the excuses white people give to avoid getting involved in ending discrimination in America and deliver a call to action to stomp out racism.

Watch the full video and see these kids explain how racism is still a huge part of even getting an interview for a job.
