Save room for the Holy Spirit!
I think we can all agree that anyone who brought Lunchables to the cafeteria in school was deemed King or Queen for a day.
What can I do to be more motivated and inspired with my studies? I just don't know what to do. I've tried changing study habits, planning things out, and I've even tried to surround myself with people who have high work ethic and an energetic drive about school.
Lesson materials included direction on how to carry out a “slave raid” and manipulate “African Chiefs” through bribes and lacing them with alcohol.
Finals are here, but it doesn't have to be a frightening subject! If you are stressing about your upcoming tests, take a deep breath - because we're all in this together. Test-taking is not everyone's strongest suit, but with careful planning and a focused mind, anyone can survive the insanity of final exam week. Here are a few tips to get you on track - and prepare you to make mincemeat out of those tests!
Rather than ask your parents, roommate, or grammar-guru BFF to take time out of their busy lives to read yet another one of your papers, you should give DocuToss a try.
The end of the semester is the worst for papers, especially in the spring. All you want to do is lay out by the pool with your friends and sip on something fruity
Whether you just graduated or you've had another year of college under your belt, the post-school slump is about to hit.
I used to be a college tour guide, in which I told prospective students that they could choose from over 150 different majors at my school. Apparently, 13 or so of them are completely useless -- including mine. How about yours? Is your entire collegiate career a sham of actual productivity?
Ah, kids these days. Apparently, high schools across the country are setting strict dress codes for dances because girls are choosing dresses that are too "sexy." Naturally, we had to do some investigation into this subject. We combed the internet, looking at the most risque prom dresses out there. After careful analysis, we've come to a conclusion. These dresses aren't sexy. They're just ugly.
I'm going through a particularly angsty period of my college career right now, so if you were to ask me what the worst subject in school is, I would probably say ALL OF THEM. But of course, the Twitterverse has some much more creative ideas than that.
Here at the University of Alabama, I've been really fortunate with my class experiences. I graduated with a class of 102 students, so coming to a large SEC school was definitely culture shock. My first class had 300 students in it, and I felt like a number.
The better you treat your body, the better you will feel. The better you feel, the more successful you’ll be in school and the more energy you’ll have for the really fun stuff. Read on to learn how you can use the latest discoveries in health and fitness to stay healthy, happy, and motivated this school year.
Since it's that time of year, the time for choosing colleges (and for some, leaving college) Jezebel has decided to depart some wisdom on all the high school senior hopefuls out here, asking them to really think about what they want out of there college experience, about why they're choosing the schools they're choosing, and the effects those choices will have on their college careers.
Dear Tuffy Luv, I'm pretty sure you already answered a question like mine but I couldn't find the answer, so here goes. I'm a high school senior applying to college and I'm having a bit of a problem with my safety school. It's brilliant: great nightlife, safe area, amazing dorms and has a course that I love. One bad thing though: it's my hometown.
Schools all over have been experimenting with social media lately - some of them getting into it and some of them encouraging their students to stay out of it. Now Harrisburg University of Science and Tech are blocking all social media from the school's network including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and AIM for a week. They're not the first school to try a move like this, but my question is, is it right?
strong>Would You Rather win an insane shopping spree for a totally brand new back-to-school wardrobe OR get to sit down and chat with your favorite celebrity (dead or alive) for five minutes? Things to Consider: these, this, touching Justin Bieber's hair (!!!!) or, you know, talking to someone you love.
College: a time of growing up, trying new things, and, of course, meeting new people. From the bitchy girl in Chem class to the hot guy from a frat party, freshman year brings a slew of different characters. While no two people share quite the same college experience, there are a few archetypal personalities that, without a doubt, can be found on a freshman floor.
As we all head back into our routine of late night partying studying, coffee seems to be the obvious pick-me-up to get us out of bed and into life come morning time. You know a venti glass of water isn't going to give you the necessary push to get you through that 8am lecture.
Let’s face it: we all make stupid decisions. Like choosing a fifth over a review session, or bringing that guy home…who stole our iPod in the morning. That’s part of college life... and a big part of what makes it so memorable. But there are some choices that have longer lasting repercussions; things we do now that will haunt us later.
Dear Tuffy Luv, I recently broke up with my boyfriend of one and a half years, and I've been beating myself up ever since. The first half of our relationship was blissful - we were like best friends, had tons of fun together and he treated me like a queen. But about halfway through our relationship, I began to think about my long-term desires, and realized I was unhappy.
I started going out with a guy right before I left for college. I really like him, but he goes to school in a different state and I feel like I’m missing out on a lot with my friends when I’m on the phone with him every night. He totally trusts me so it’s not like he’s annoying or anything, but this whole LDR thing is really taking up a lot of time. What do you guys think of long distance in college? Good idea or bad?
You know those “What I Want to Be When I Grow Up” essays you were assigned in sixth grade? Some kids wrote about wanting to be a rock star, a teacher, a mailman, a professional Sega Genesis player, an Olympic Pog champion…and you sat staring at your blank paper.
Having just "celebrated" banned books week in America, I started thinking about the importance of reading, the beauty of stories and how much books enrich all of our lives. And most of my thoughts came back to one single theme: W.T.Eff?
There's been some debate recently about increasing the number of days public school kids have to spend in class, and while you may be thinking "man, I'm glad I'm not in high school anymore," think again. Colleges, especially public ones, generally follow the patterns set up by lower levels of schooling, which means that if they cut back on summer, you could kiss it goodbye too.
Alright, since we spent last week debating what it means to cheat in a relationship, it only seems right to figure out what the other kind of cheating means - the kind that involves teachers. Seriously, though, we've all read the school policies about cheating and plagarism, but at the same time, most of us have done something that we wouldn't really want the school to know about.
There are a lot of girls who wake up on Game Day just as excited as the boys for the glory that is college football. These football girls know their team, their key players, their opponents, their weaknesses, and also, most likely, who the hottest players are.
We hate to be bearers of bad news, but it's August — meaning the glory days of sippin' summer cocktails and rapidly developing skin cancer at any locale offering a mid- to large-sized body of water are, unfortunately, coming to an end.
I am literally counting down the days until I head back to school (30 and a half, baby!). I miss red Solo cups, beer pong, and (although I hate to admit it) the cliche frat guys who are always down for an ice luge and day drinking.
Did you know that August was originally named Sextilis? In ancient times there seemed to be pretty high expectations for this month. But throughout history August has gained a bad reputation for being the most unfortunate month of the year.
Ahh summer time. The heat is blistering, the Natty Lite is chilled and the pool beckons. For those of us not taking summer classes, these three months are a glorious break from homework, studying and fluorescent lighting. Yes, the whole summer yawns out blue skies and cut-offs until late August and it’s hard to imagine ever going back to school.
The hardest part of graduating college is not the fact that your friends are now spread all over the country. It is not the fact that you can no longer party 6 nights a week with $1 pitchers. It isn’t even the whole “getting a job” thing (even now). The hardest part is having no freaking clue how to do anything.
If you’re graduating this spring and you’ve managed to score a job you’re probably thanking god (if you still believe there is one) and thinking you’re super lucky. But think again. Because according to the WSJ, those currently entering the labor market won’t only be suffering from low-salary syndrome this year, but for, uh, ten more to come. Yes, ten years—or more!
A while back, the editor of this very site put out a query: "Give me a Top 10 list of your favorite High School Movies." I told her I wanted in - after all, who doesn't love to indulge in a little HS drama? So I sat down and started listing. Only I discovered that including just 10 was more impossible than winning 8 medals in one Olympic games. And I am no Michael Phelps.
I hate to break it to you, but if you're planning on sacrificing your summer for an internship this year, now is the time to start searching, applying, and interviewing.
[I like to think of myself as a pretty easy going gal, and try not to sweat the small stuff....
