What Every College Town Should Have

A karaoke bar. There. I said it. As much as I like to claim my school has everything I could want and is essentially the perfect college town- I might be stretching the truth just a teeny tiny bit. And I don't think I'm alone. I'm not sure if there is a perfect college town out there- but if there is one, I pretty sure it would include these ten things.

Guns and Other Things That Should Not Be Allowed on College Campuses

I'm sure by now everyone has heard about the 7 states considering the legalization of guns on campus. With schools usually being gun free zones this has caused some uproar among students and professors and just about anyone else with a pulse.

The Weekly Ten: The Jobs That Deserve This Labor Day

This week I've decided to list the 10 jobs that totally deserve to sleep in past noon this Monday, Labor Day. Why is it even called Labor Day? Shouldn't it be Not-Labor Day? But I digress. Some people deserve a break for all they do/deal with on a daily basis. I don't have the power to give it to them, but maybe they'll note my appreciation and hook me up in the future.

Campus Couture: Kimberly, Thompson Rivers University

What is Thompson Rivers University? Where is Thompson Rivers University? To tell you the truth, I have no idea. (Without some Wikipedia, of course.) All I know is that a very creative and fashionable girl named Kim works that campus like a runway. She recently sent us an email asking that we "expand our [Campus Couture] idea and take a look at a student from Canada!"

Campus Couture: Meredith, Simmons College

The best part about having Meredith as my roommate for the past two years has to be my unlimited access to her wardrobe. I can’t even complain about her taking up the entire closet because it’s always the first place I look when I need something cute to wear out.

Where Have All The College Guys Gone?

Here’s some food for thought: for every 100 women at American colleges, there are only 77 men. And for every 100 women who graduate from American colleges, only 73 guys manage to snag their Bachelor’s degree.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Campus “Traditions”

While it's obvious that there are situations common to all college students whatever campus they may call home, every campus has its own unique traditions. Some, like walking through a certain fountain upon graduation, date back hundreds of years. Others, like puking under a table at the late night Mexican restaurant on the night of your 21st, are simply infamous amongst the student body.

This Little Piggy Isn’t Gettin’ The Flu

My top contender for Halloween costume this year is “The Swine Flu.” Who knew dressing up as a pig could be so dangerous? But in all seriousness, swine flu is still among us, and no matter what your college is doing to protect you (read: installing bottles of antibacterial everywhere), we must protect ourselves.

Lessons Learned from Annie Le

If you’ve read any news blogs or even watched a televised newscast in the last week and a half, chances are that you’ve heard the tragic story of Annie Le, the Yale grad student who disappeared ten days ago. Her body was found hidden inside a wall at the building where she worked last Sunday—which was to have been her wedding day. Now a lab technician named Raymond Clark has been charged with Annie’s murder.

We’ve All Been There: Reunited And It Feels So…Repetitive

Your bags are unpacked, your Harry Potter poster is hanging over your bed, and you’re celebrating your first night back on campus with some Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka drinks and the new roommates. Ahhhh. How good it feels to be back.

Quidditch: Coming to a Campus Near You

Clearly the fact that there have been six Harry Potter movies released, (two more in the making) seven books out in stores, and an upcoming theme park in Orlando, doesn’t quite express the extent of society’s obsession with the magic wizardly world. Because college Quidditch (yes, the broomstick-riding sport) is on the rise.
