Is your boyfriend/girlfriend so amazing they deserve to be featured in Seventeen?
Remember being a kid in summer? Camp brought new friends, cute boys, and great memories that many of us still hold dear today.
Don't we all wish we had just one device to control all the technological devices we have? We carry around our phones and MP3 players in our huge purses that contain our whole lives. This doesn't even include all the stuff we have at home like TV's, DVD players, laptops, Blue-ray disc players etc. It would be a miracle if we could just have one remote that controlled all these things! Well VooMote takes care of that. And CollegeCandy is giving one away! It comes in a bunch of different colors and you can customize the layout! This device is ridiculously cool, and you could be the proud owner of one!
I finally made the smartphone transition this year when I got my iPhone. I had been stubborn, because the idea of carrying around such an expensive, fragile thing really freaked me out. But, like everybody else who has one, now I love my smartphone. And I'm practically glued to the screen at all times. My fear hasn't disappeared though. I'm still terrified of breaking the thing, and I'm sure I would have at this point if it weren't for my case.
There's nothing we love for summer more than our favorite pair of sunglasses. This year, it looks like we'll be retiring our trusty old drugstore shades in favor of a new brand we're obsessed with. STUN makes super hot eyewear that's -- get this -- totally affordable for college students or anyone living on a tighter budget.
In case you couldn't tell, CC is crazy about music festivals. We already brought you the ultimate music festival bucket list, and a guide to music festival must-have items. And now, because Coachella is coming up, we're giving you the opportunity to win some awesome music-themed accessories! Check out the details below.
This past week, we asked you to list your fifth must have college fashion staple. Besides the necessary shoes, great jeans, and comfy pajamas, what other items do you need to survive?
Even after you've gone like a mad woman through The Container Store and Target, those stackable units can only hold so much. It is for this reason that creating a well-rounded college wardrobe is such a precise science. There is literally no room for error. So what are the items you're going to find yourself longing for?
If you've got a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Student and Teacher edition on your hands (or on your computer), you better open up a blank project right this instant. Simply convey your passions, inspirations and artistic visions into one creation and enter it in the Adobe Imagination Challenge.
Okay, so here at the CollegeCandy offices, we're pretty obsessed with our candy pink Sony VAIO S series laptop PC. Why, you ask? Because this thing has a 15 hour battery life and looks amazing when we bring it to meetings. We have to tell you, it's pretty freakin' amazing living in a world free of tangled power cords and low batteries.
There's a rumor that here at CollegeCandy we like to work in our undies. While that might not be true, we do appreciate casual Fridays and fab weekend wear. When we're looking to rock some laid-back fashion, we always look to our friends at Threadless Select for the ultimate in super-soft (and super fun) original tees!
We're officially four years old and we couldn't be happier. Over the past four years we've gone from a teeny-tiny little blog struggling to get visitors to becoming the LARGEST blog out there for college women. (Sorta like how Suri went from pacifiers to high heels....) Not to sound cocky, but GO US! Okay we're done patting ourselves on our backs. Intern, stop rubbing my feet and start patting me on the back, will ya?
Last week we invited people to upload their messiest desk pictures to our Facebook fan page to prove to us why they deserved to win this awesome prize. And even though our desks are filled with old wrappers, crumb-filled keyboards, and coffee stains, you guys managed to out-do us.
Does this sound familiar? You’re taking 18 credits, involved in extra curriculars, trying to study, accepting social invitations left and right and trying to impress the cute guy in psychology class. You don’t exactly have free time, and well, your desk reflects it.
In The Roommate, Leighton Meester plays Rebecca, who befriends her dorm-mate Sara. It seems like they're becoming besties until Rebecca gets obsessed with Sara, putting both her and her friends in some serious danger.

Halloween 2010 is finally here and we're looking forward to celebrating the only national college holiday that ends with me getting stabbed in the eye by an oversized fairy wing. While we're excited to see all the awesome creative costumes, we're also dreading seeing all the cliche and uninspired pop culture costumes.
Sure summer was great, but we're secretly thrilled to be done with the sunburns, bikini body issues, and living at home. We're insanely excited to get this school year off to an awesome start -- and we know you are too.
t's time, ladies and gents. We gave you a week to tell us what makes you the best roommate and, adorably enough, many of you submitted stories on what makes your roommate the best. Awwww.
You know what's cool? Pit stains. Or not. But thanks to the summer sun, I've got 'em and I have a feeling they'll be sticking around until September. That oughta be good for my social life.
Alright ladies, let's talk. Like most women, I'm a woman of indulgence. I love long shopping trips, great meals, and pampering myself whenever I get the chance. And now, thanks to the people over at Kao (makers of Curel, John Frieda, Jergens, Biore and Ban) I am getting the chance to do it all. For free!
CollegeCandy is giving three copies of TFLN's new book away. FOR FREE. Could you imagine anything better? I mean, if the site makes you LOL on a daily (or, more realistically, hourly) basis, just imagine how fabulous the book will be (besides the fact that there is no discreet way to read it in class....)!
eSmart Tax, an online tax service, is letting 2.1 Million people file for taxes for free this year! The only catch: your last name has to be Johnson.
