  • My Love/Hate Relationship With College

    Like with most things in my life (namely, the boy I'm kinda, sorta talking to right now), I have a very complicated relationship with college. Over the past four years, we’ve had our ups and downs. There have been moments when my only thoughts were, I love college (when I was living one of these moments), and there were others when I’ve thought, I hate college with a fiery passion…

  • 10 Undercover Items Your Parents Will Buy You In College

    I remember the days of running around Bed Bath and Beyond with my parents, frantically scrounging the aisle for that perfect plastic bin to stash all of my Ramen.
