Whether you're an incoming freshmen or a 5th year senior, it is impossible to fully grasp college as a whole. There are so many dimensions that form niche after niche, and each dimension has its own take on things.
Writer and film-maker, Gotham Chopra, sets out to show the world Deepak Chopra as he knows him as his father in his documentary 'Decoding Deepak,' which made it's world premier at the SXSW Film Festival. I had the pleasure of interviewing Deepak on the red carpet before the film. He doesn't say a lot, but what he does say is really...er, deep?
You're the life of the party. You sparkle and dazzle and wow. Your roommate, on the other hand...doesn't. She's quiet. Lazy. Complain-y. Uuuugggghhhh, she has to go to class again. You try to care, to tell her class isn't so bad -- it's nice to get out of the dorm once in a while! But no, she doesn't want to hear it.

As much as it pains me to say, finals season is coming. For some, you've still got a few weeks before all hell breaks loose. For others, there are only 7 days between you and those dreaded cram-everything-you've-learned-in-the-past-three-months-into-a-100-questions tests. Needless to say, it's a stressful time of year that always sneaks up on us, no matter how many syllabi we have or how much we tell ourselves that we're going to start studying three weeks in advance.

College. You know, the usual: risqué Halloween costumes, strings of all-nighters, beer pong contests and stories to last for decades…oh, and the four-year process of earning a diploma. But with the current state of our nation’s economy, our degrees are not as highly valued as they used to be, despite the rising prices of our annual tuition, textbooks and time.
Help! I'm failing. I've always been one of those students who are really vocal in class, good at bullsh*tting in essays, but in my politics final I couldn't blag through a multiple choice exam and failed it. I've got papers and deadlines piling up and I've been partying or procrastinating (reading up on study tips from CC as studying); how should I buckle down and start working seriously?
