College Myths Debunked: The Hidden Dangers of Ice Luging

While sliding down frozen mountainsides is somewhat adventurous, nothing compares to the college Ice Luge. 6 feet tall, carved into the shape of your school mascot, fraternity letters, or just a giant wedge, the ice luge will leave you liquored up and slightly frostbitten around your mouth and nose.

Get To Know Your Dorm BFFs

Living in the dorms is one of the most essential college experiences. Years from now, you’ll tell your friends and family of all your adventures and mishaps. You’ll never forget those obnoxious fire-drills at 3 am, the industrial blue carpeting, how hard it was for you to climb up into your bed...whilst drunk.

Intro to Cooking: Lemon-Blueberry Pie

I’ll let you in on a not-so-small secret: I love pie. Like borderline-unhealthy-obsession-with-pie syndrome. Like if a recipe looks delicious and simple I will think to myself “Hmm, Kari, how can this translate into pie form?” (Which, I should warn you, doesn't work with everything...like margaritas.)

College Myths Debunked: Breaking The Seal

As college students, we are constantly inundated with new knowledge. It can be useful, thought-provoking, or crammed into our head on a Starbucks-fueled binge several hours before an exam. However, very rarely do we question the validity of all this new knowledge (unless you take philosophy classes, then you’ll question away).

The Best Bras Out There: Strapless Edition

So, being the do-gooder that I am, I decided to go on a hunt for the best strapless bras around and bring them all to you. Trust me, I know all about the woes of the strapless, so I was very discriminating on my search.

5 Things to Learn Your First Week on Campus

I learned more my first week at college than I did in my entire life. And I don’t mean academically. I mean socially, financially, emotionally and drunk-ly. Some things took longer to figure out than others (that I should visit the ATM before I get to the bar, to avoid extra fees and my tendency to tipsily make it rain) and other things took mere minutes...

Cosmo Says The Darndest Things: August Edition

The August issue of Cosmo brings us this year’s annual “Hot Issue” (not to be confused with the “Sexy” issue). Cosmo informs the general female public on how to get and stay hot with helpful tips such as putting shaving cream in your hair and telling your boyfriend he’s hot—before someone else does.

Confession: I Miss School!

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.

Cosmo Says the Darndest Things: July Edition

This month’s Cosmo was full of summer fun ideas and beat-the-heat ideas that sound like they might actually work. But July’s issue had it all: A woman with a PHD who analyzes Speidi PDA! Un-cheesy 4th of July looks! A new advice column by Chelsea Handler!(!!) And, of course, some semi-misguided advice…

Everything I Need to Know I Learned My Freshman Year

Now that I’m halfway done with my college career, I anticipate all the bright eyed and bushy tailed freshmen about to invade the dorms and use fake-id’s at all my favorite bars. Putting myself in their shoes, I wish that someone had been there to give me advice for my college career (all I got was my Mom telling me not to hook up with any fraternity boys until Spring semester).

Cosmo Says The Darndest Things: June Edition

This month, Cosmo was especially recession conscious (there were, like, 6 whole articles!), featured a slightly disappointing interview with Leighton Meester (she’s just not as bitchy as Blair) and their first ever scratch-n-sniff! But, by far the most…interesting article I read was “The Sex Detective is in!”

Cosmo Says the Darndest Things: May Edition

This month, Cosmo released its annual “Sexy” issue. In it, they provide various, previously printed tips for seducing your man, or just feeling hot in general (apparently, paying my bills in the nude will make it “less painful.” Uh, I probably would have named something else as number 32 on the list of 50 Things to Do Naked, but that’s just me).

The Pissed List: Conspiracy Theories and Irresponsible Treasury Secretaries

I like to think of myself as a pretty easy going gal and try not to sweat the small stuff. But sometimes (ok, maybe slightly more often) the general cluelessness, carelessness and overall stupidity of some things and or/people really gets to me.
