Re: “Your Indispensable Back-To-College Guide

... and when you do end up in the hospital after your best friends poured your besotted butt from their car and dumped you on the curb next to the emergency room entrance, devoid of your identification, wallet, underwear and dignity, please be kind to the healthcare workers who had nothing to do with your current situation and may have to care for someone who was shot, stabbed or has a more serious medical emergency, even though all your other best friends who enabled your alcohol or drug abuse are taking up all the seating in the emergency room waiting room texting and calling all your other, other best friends "OMG my BFF is in the hospital and they won't let me go back, and BTW bring me a large Starbucks because the vending machines in this place are SO lame."

Re: “Your Indispensable Back-To-College Guide

Here's how the items on the list would've read when I was a freshman at the UA from 76 to 81. The following items would read pretty much the same: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, 13, 15, and 16. The following items would read differently: 8. Goodwill and the Salvation Army were pretty much your only choices, 11. We'd still go to the Loft but it was on 6th Street and Fremont (now a parking garage), 14. Student Union, 2nd floor, east end had big chairs and sofas and of course the top floor of the Main Library, 17. We'd go to the Student Health Center at Cherry and University (now the Sonett Space Sciences Bldg.) because it was free, 18. No one cared about your mental health. And items that weren't a thing back then-2, 7, 9, and 10.
