    Silly Things College Freshmen Say [Photos]

    Oh, to be a freshman again. I remember the days when I bought every single book for all of my classes, tried my best to finish all the reading assignments, and got the phone number of every single new person I met. I still have tons of random names in my phone. This new College Freshman meme is taking me back to those days. Here's the best of the College Freshman meme – see anything you recognize?

  • The Weekly Ten: Laugh a Little

    The Weekly Ten: Laugh a Little

    I bought a day-by-day calendar all about being assertive and basically saying "No, thank you" more (but without the 'thank you' part). And by "assertive," I mean it's filled with hysterical quotes about how it's okay to be super-bitchy, because we all have those day/moments/weeks/lifetimes...when we need to insert an extra NO! into one thing or another.

    Lessons from a Second Semester Senior

    As I write this, I am about to embark on my final semester of my college career. Weird, right? It almost seems like yesterday when I was a little freshman moving in to my dorm. Except for the growth part, a lot has changed in these three and a half years. I’ve learned the hardships of picking the right classes and managing my social life and my studies, but it was all worth the ride.

  • The Weekly Ten: Summer Fever

    The Weekly Ten: Summer Fever

    As a New Englander you would think I would be one of the many supporters of winter. After all, I used to figure skate and bring my inner tube to the Seven Hills, but somewhere (I blame junior year of college; not sure why) I turned. Maybe it was when I fell in love with all the wonderful things summer had to offer, maybe it was when winter started taking over half of the year.

    Maybe Students Need A Reality Check

    Earlier this week, Sigma Phi Epsilon at the University of Vermont was suspended after new members responded to a fifteen question document. A questionnaire sounds harmless enough, right? Wrong. One of the questions was, "If you could rape someone, who would it be?".

    Friday Faves: It’s the Little Things That Matter in College

    Neverending class work, nonstop relationship (or lack thereof) shiz, grad school applications, a dwindling bank account...the day-to-day worries of our college years often weigh us down. But too often, we stress about the big issues and totally forget about the little things that make our daily routines bearable...or even great!

    People Will Say Anything For A Hook-Up

    “So…are we gonna hook-up or what?” Ah, another poor soul lost to the epidemic I refer to as “The Death of Subtlety.” It was a fabulous time (read: three days) we spent together. He was good-looking, kinda funny, not too much of a d-bag...in other words, a total catch. And then, as we lay in each other’s arms on the musty couch, he uttered that fateful question. Sigh.

    Have you ever been stuck in a funk that, even though your friends are concerned and your finals are creeping up, you really just don’t want to get out of it just yet? Like you just want to crawl into your Snuggie with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and while listening to a song that articulates your inexpressible feelings so perfectly?

    Easy Ways to Stay in Touch with the News

    As an overworked college student, it can be hard to pay attention to the off-campus world. You are struggling to keep up with your courseload and you’re expected to keep up with international developments too? It is tempting to retreat to the library, glue your nose to a textbook and forget about world issues.

    Top 10 Best College Theme Party Ideas

    It's safe to say that costume and theme parties are one of the biggest parts of college life. After all, college is one of the few times in life where you can get away with dressing in crazy costumes, and convincing your friends to do the same, on a regular basis. I mean, how often do your parents talk about going to an ABC party?

    Friday Faves: Should Blackout Mistakes be Forgiven?

    "So can anyone tell me what went down last night?" Ahh, the magical college blackout. These words have become way-too-familiar over the past few years I've spent at this fine academic institution. Sunday mornings - Gatorade and a McDonald's breakfast sandwich in hand - I sit in my living room with my roommates, attempting to piece together the events from the night before.

    The Weekly Ten: My Hipster Halloween

    My original plan, for this year, was to be Ruth from "Hey Arnold." It fits my obscure rule: The more times I can scoff and say "What, you don't know who I am?" the better. And when I find someone who does know who I am...well, we become best friends for the night. Then I found a pretty dress so I'm being a fairy...I know. So as inspiration for the rest of you go-all-outters for Halloween here are my ten favorite dorky-hipster-internet themed costumes.
