Web Spy: The Weather Stylist

Getting dressed in the morning is always such a hassle: finding an outfit among the array of shirts, pants, skirts, sweaters, shoes, and belts in your closet that's both stylish and weather-appropriate is both stressful and time-consuming. Usually, I spend about 10 minutes watching the weather channel with my closet doors open, hoping for inspiration, only to just throw on another tee-cardigan-jeans combination.

Thanks a Lot, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

While many of us were opening presents and eating mom's homemade breakfast in our Christmas pajamas on December 25th, there were some people out there who were just not feelin' the Christmas spirit. Like, I don't know, the man who attempted to blow up a Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit?

Duke It Out: Study Abroad

The time has come once again to start picking classes for spring semester (really? didn't we just do this?) and my mind turns to places that won't be covered in grey slush come January. Places with warm, sunny vistas and boys with sexy accents. In other words, places abroad.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: We Want A Do-Over!

No matter how much we all love college, I know that everyone has that one thing they'd like to do-over. Being that we're all heading back to campus in a few weeks (Oh wait, not me. Sigh.), I asked the CollegeCandy writers to share their do-over wish lists so no one else has to make the same mistakes we did.

Why You Should…Go To Japan

Let's look at the facts - our economy is bad, everyone is cutting back, no one has money (maybe that's just me), and even the weather is bad. If there was ever a time that vacations were needed, it's now. Whatever happened to the glory days of the traditional random college backpacking trip or the "I need to find myself" adventure to who-knows-where? Well, go find yourself! Actually, I already found you - you're in Japan.

I’m Torn: Summer School

Ahhh, summer. The sweet, glorious days of summer. Days spent lounging by the pool, building sandcastles at the beach, or lying in bed all day watching old episodes of The OC on Soap Net. School's finally out, and since the last long vacation you had was winter break, you're ready for some of mom's home cooking and not getting up from your bed. Ever.

Get Your Degree and Get Outta Here!

Money Matters: Smart Splurges in Celebration of Your Tax Refund

Overall, this is sad, but in a couple of weeks I'll be getting nearly a G in tax returns. Yeah, that's a crapload of money. But when I look back at all the hours I worked in 2008, it also makes me realize... I made jack sh*t.
