Campus Couture: Peppy Peggy

It doesn’t matter if it’s rain or shine; Peggy always knows how to dress so she’ll stand out in a crowd and make any girl on campus want to emulate her. She has the cutest blazers for fall, the chic-est coats for winter, and the flirtiest dresses for spring. Her outfits are always full of personality - usually very colorful and bright, just like her!

Campus Couture: Keepin’-It-Comfy Meagan

I’ve known Meagan since elementary school, and she’s always been one of the happiest people I know (she’s a cheerleader so she has to be, I guess). Her clothing choices are always full of color and spunk, and she is the definition of cute: a tiny body with a big personality that shines through her outfits.

I’m Torn: Making The First Move

Boys. What a confusing subject. More confusing than my European History class and Biological Bases of Behavior class combined, and they’re tough enough alone as it is. You think they feel one way and it turns out they feel the exact opposite; sometimes good, other times bad. If they’re were an award on Most Mixed Messages Sent In One Night, boys would definitely take the cake. And the trophy.

Campus Couture: Poppin’, Lockin’ Alex

Meet my childhood friend, Alex! He’s one of the best dancers I know, and represents the new era of fashion that incorporates a street style mixed with urban chic. Every time I see him he’s always dancing; whether it be popping and locking while talking, or doing the finger tut. And all the while in Nike Dunks and a sick graphic tee.

Campus Couture: Lauren La’Flare

If there's one girl who's got some fashion courage it's Lauren. I spotted her on campus because, well, it's impossible not to spot her. She's always decked out in bright colors, bold accessories and some serious confidence. Oh, and her perfect hair helps, too.

Do It Yourself Tuesday: Paint Chip Art

We all know that painting the walls in your dorm room is a giant no-no. But that doesn't mean you have to settle for some BS Animal House poster for your wall decor; there is another way to show off your creativity and create a space that is both cool and easy to remove at the end of the year so you can get your security deposit back.

10 Things We Should Ban Instead Of Books

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?

Campus Couture: Sweet and Simple Sarah

Even though she isn’t in college anymore, Sarah still exudes the typical college girl enthusiasm for new clothes and the word “sale.” When I approached her to take a picture of her look, she agreed... but only if I took a picture of the back of her skirt. She wanted to show off the best parts of her look: the pretty metallic details and ruffles next to the rich color of her scarf.

Campus Couture: Treehugging Chloe

Meet Chloe. Whenever I see her on campus, she always has the cutest outfits on that make you think of picnicking in green meadows and somersaulting across the grassy field. Her style is always really fresh with girly touches like headbands and hair pins, and plenty of gold-toned jewelry to go with. And no one has ever seen her without a cloth bag. Ever.

Intro To Cooking: Banana Soft Serve

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream. But I scream the loudest. And my abs scream quite differently. That’s why I totally flipped out (in glee!) last weekend at Target while shopping for a blender. I wanted to buy one to make fruit smoothies and iced coffees.

Campus Couture: Chic Mr. Shane

While everyone is fabulous in their own right, we thought we should celebrate the campus fashionistas of the world for their continued excellence in not looking like a hot mess for class. So, we started stalking those girls (and guys!) on campus to get a few pics and get some tips on their personal style. And maybe a restraining order or two.

I’m Torn: Drugs

Before anyone calls the police and I wind up on the next episode of Cops, let me clarify. When I say "drugs" I mean marijuana/weed/pot/green/reefer/hemp/buddha/herbage, or whatever else you want to call it. Lots of my friends have touted the effects of weed, and some even smoke it every day as a way to relax from a hard day of boring classes and crazy professors. I've never tried it, but lately I've wondered why not.

I’m A Virgin. So What?

Why does everyone think that being a virgin is bad? Ok, not necessarily bad per se. But definitely looked down upon, like we’re being foolish for not wanting to experience “the pleasures of life” you non-virgins always talk about.
