Stop With the Nicknames, Sweetheart

A new study has found that women get royally pissed when they’re given a nickname in the office. No, they’re not talking about that time your boss got drunk at the holiday party and called you Tits McGee.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Awkward Work Moments

This past Halloween my friends and I decided to put on our costumes early and head over to a bar to watch some college football. Fast forward to 3pm: I'm drunk, dressed up as Rainbow Bright and smoking cigarettes on the street while my male friend jokingly shoved his hand up my skirt.

Girl 1: It's not like that. If you put anything in a crust, it's a pie. That's a pie. Girl 2: What about cheesecake? Cheesecake has a crust. Girl 1: No it doesn't. Girl 2: Have you ever had cheesecake? Have you even seen a cheesecake? This is a problem, like, for us. For you and me.

Ideas for a Perfect April Fools

April Fool's Day is just days away, which means there is little time to plan some much needed pranks. We've all got important things like midterms, meetings, internships, and beer pong tournaments to catch up on, but that's no excuse.

Internship Lowdown: The Paid vs. the Unpaid

Is the spring semester half over already? Sadly, it's true. And while some of our peers will be looking forward to spending the summer at one pool party after another, many of us are currently scouring job listings for summer internships.
