World’s Largest Woman: The Worst Goal of All Time

With all the fuss lately surrounding healthy body images and the perfect abs, it seems a bit surprising that Donna Simpson, a 42 year old New Jersey woman has actually made it her goal t be the world's fattest woman. She's even said it would be "a fantasy" to reach 1,000 pounds!

Coed Dorm Rooms – Yay or Nay?

My group of friends is pretty mixed between guys and girls, and now that we're upperclassmen and live off-campus, it seems totally normal for them to share houses. In fact, it seems quite splendid. But would it be quite the same to co-habitate with a manly man in that closet I used to affectionately consider my room?

The Do’s and Don’ts of St. Patty’s Day

Every St. Patrick's Day when my alarm goes off at 7 a.m., my half-Irish heart flutters as I anticipate the long day of debauchery ahead (I'd like to note that I've never scheduled a class earlier than 9:30 because I won't get out of bed for it, but I will GLADLY rise with the sun for the promise of beer).

What’s Happening To Obama’s Student Loan Plans?

I'll start this post with the disclaimer that I'm not one that usually gets involved in (or understands) politics. But what I do understand is the massive amount of debt I am incurring by spending four years at a university. And I'm sure that is something many of you also understand all too well.

Lindsay Lohan Is Mad. At Talking Babies

Now that hot mess Lindsay Lohan is basically unemployable, she's got a lot more time on her hands. Time that she's apparently filling watching TV and then suing people for making really awesome commercials. Babies with voice dubbs discussing finances while Skyping? Adorable. But LiLo doesn't agree.

Earn Money NOT To Go To School?

It's no secret that it costs A LOT of money to go to school. Between tuition, textbooks, room & board, meal plans, and bar tabs, students and their parents shell out big bucks for a four-year university degree. But what if your college actually paid you not to go?

The Coolest Commencement Speakers of 2010

Although the whole "graduating" thing sucks in theory, there's always a lot of excitement surrounding the commencement speaker (or controversy, if you remember the whole Obama at Notre Dame debacle...). A good speaker can trick you into thinking this isn't the worst day of your life inspire you to look ahead to the future and all the possibilities that lay ahead.

5 Reasons We Salute You, Chelsea Handler

Besides being the month of St. Patrick's Day and CollegeCandy's editor's birthday, March is Women's History Month. Instead of honoring the great women of our past, however, we at CC want to honor the women they inspired and who now inspire us.

The Jersey Shore Goes Glam?

You can take the girl outta Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey outta the girl. Unless you're Harper's Bazaar, that is.

Accepted. Wait. Not Accepted.

When I think back to senior year of high school, I remember a few things: hardly ever doing schoolwork, living under my parents' roof, and being 10 pounds lighter, for instance. But there's no doubt that waiting for those college acceptance (or rejection) letters to start rolling in is the most exciting and nerve-racking time in a senior's life!

5 Reasons We’re Counting Down to the Oscars

This Sunday, the 82nd Annual Academy Awards will air at 8 p.m. on ABC! We at CollegeCandy are obviously super excited for all the usual reasons: red carpet fashion, trying to predict the winners (will anything actually beat Avatar?) and of course, an excuse to put on a cocktail dress and drink on a Sunday.

Goodbye Olympics, Helloooo TV!

We at CollegeCandy have really enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics (read: ogling the hot athletes). But as much fun as it was rooting on our people for the past two weeks, I'm a little more than psyched that some of my favorite shows are coming back!

YouTube College Admissions?

Even though my days of filling out college applications are long gone, I can still remember the frustration of trying to set myself apart from my classmates. AP classes. National Honor Society. Varsity Soccer. Spanish Club. The list goes on.
