When considering what organizations to join or positions to apply for, think about whether you have the right motive for doing so. It is not worth participating in something just because you think it would be a good resume builder.
As much satisfaction as I get from checking boxes on my to-do list, I have never once wished to trade an hour spent with my friends for an hour doing work at my desk. I’m disciplined, but I’m not a robot.
College lacks permanence. In a way, that makes us all ghosts, floating through a temporary life, making lasting memories knowing that any moment could be the last we spend with these certain people, because, eventually, we will all go our separate ways. Can ghosts really change?
Things only change when you put in the time and effort to make the most of your situation and bloom where you are planted.
Had I had more margin in my undergraduate career, I would have spent more time on the quad reading; spent more time writing and advocating for the issues I am passionate about; spent more time with my laptop closed during mealtimes, listening to my friends or getting to know strangers.
Sports teach us that it is important to have these moments. After all, seeing Kenyan Drake take that kickoff to the house meant infinitely more to those of us who saw him break his ankle against Ole Miss our freshman year.

There are restaurants where I went on bad dates, restaurants where I sat talking to friends long after our food was good, and coffee shops where I wrote papers over giant mugs of hot chocolate.
I challenge you to create your own story at UA, one that you would want to share with others when you’re standing in my shoes getting ready to leave some of the best years of your life.
If you have ever felt unworthy or inadequate, I encourage you to do the same: go look at yourself in the mirror until you see the wonderful self who you truly are.
To students with remaining time at Alabama, my plea is that you don’t miss out on Tuscaloosa’s quirk, that you take time to leave campus and invest (as well as indulge) in local oddities.
Emerson writes, “We live amid surfaces, and the true art of life is to skate well on them.” I think this is brilliant. We really do. The surfaces of life are so varied, and I’ve experienced this firsthand.
The students completed a year-long film course called Documenting Justice, instructed by professor Andrew Grace.
"Each song felt singular, like it may never be performed again," our music columnist writes.
My advice to those of you reading this column, if any do, is this: don’t be a fair-weather friend to the few who were there for you when the chips were down.
Get caught up in learning who you are and what you have to offer to humanity once your time at the Capstone finally comes to an end.
Since we cannot be certain about how much time we have, and because we cannot change the allocation, we must change our priorities. This column is not the usual “manage your time” speech, but something that is far more important. This is about fulfillment.
