Why Do We Turn Everything Into A Drinking Game?

My family doesn't really celebrate Easter, but some of my friends from other schools mentioned they would be home as well. It's always nice to see old friends. Well I got a text from one that said, "I want to do an adult Easter egg hunt. Somehow also made into a drinking game," to which I replied, "Jello shots in plastic Easter eggs that we have to find!"

The 10 Glorious Ways to Drink a Beer

It's not hard to enjoy a beer. Just crack that baby, open your mouth and - boom - enjoyed. But thanks to college students' never ending stream of ingenuity (or their need to drink as much cheap beer as possible without actually tasting it), there's a wide variety of ways to indulge in the nectar of the gods.

Friday Faves: The 6 Most Common Facebook Photos

People can learn a lot about you from your Facebook profile. By considering your favorite movies, pictures, quotes and the things other people write on your wall, it is quite easy to get a good idea of who you are as a person. And knowing that, many of us are extremely careful about what we throw on there.

The Morning After: The St. Patty’s Day Peep Show

As per usual in my life, my senior year (the first one, mind you) was spent obsessing over a gargantuan, shaggy-haired, Beatles' lovin, ex-BF who thought he was way too good for me. Even though he ignored me 99% of the time, I basically revolved my life around him. I planned my weekend festivities around where I thought he might show up.

Cosmo Says the Darndest Things: November Edition

My dearest Cosmo has always had a special affinity for body language analysis (I think they’ve done Speidi like 6 times). Now they’re taking it to the next level and making it all easy, convenient and user-friendly for you! Cosmo understands the trials and tribulations of dating, especially when we need to figure out the bizarre and complex behavior of the male species.

We’ve All Been There: One Shot Too Many

You start off with a few rum and Diets at home before heading to the house party. You couldn’t possibly walk in sober and who knows how much access you’ll have to booze once you get inside? You're sipping on your last pre-drink when your friends are finally ready to go, so you chug it and follow them out.

Stop Taking Shots and Eat Your Cocktails!

I love drinking alcohol, but weekend after weekend of beer pong and vodka shots can get old. So I got to thinking…how can I spice up my weekly binge drinking sesh? I hit the web in search of some “unique,” “fun” alcohol ideas, and out of these keywords came the most glorious idea I have ever heard. Cake-tails.

Dollar Pitchers No More

I am thoroughly pissed off. And you should be too. It’s been announced that the price of beer is on the rise this fall due to the fact that sales are down and the cost of making it is up. Now, I don’t know who is cutting back on their beer intake (how else are you supposed to cope with the declining economy and increasing joblessness?), but it sure as hell isn’t us college students.

College Myths Debunked: Liquor Before Beer…Doesn’t Make That Much of a Difference

There it is, the golden rule. Liquor before beer and you’re in the clear! The thing is, I know this isn’t true, I knew on my 16th birthday that this “rule” was BS. The amount of alcohol you drink—not the type and not the order in which you drink it—determines how drunk you get.

College Myths Debunked: Breaking The Seal

As college students, we are constantly inundated with new knowledge. It can be useful, thought-provoking, or crammed into our head on a Starbucks-fueled binge several hours before an exam. However, very rarely do we question the validity of all this new knowledge (unless you take philosophy classes, then you’ll question away).

We’ve All Been There: Day Drinking

You’ve got a big day planned: early morning breakfast, football pre-party, football game, then out on the town with your homies. 18 hours of boozing? Psssssh. It may sound like a lot, but you’ve been training for a day like this since you stepped foot on campus.

Everything I Need to Know I Learned My Freshman Year

Now that I’m halfway done with my college career, I anticipate all the bright eyed and bushy tailed freshmen about to invade the dorms and use fake-id’s at all my favorite bars. Putting myself in their shoes, I wish that someone had been there to give me advice for my college career (all I got was my Mom telling me not to hook up with any fraternity boys until Spring semester).

Board Games and Booze: You Can’t Go Wrong!

We've all played the typical card-related party games: Kings, F*** the Dealer, Up and Down the River. We've also played games that require plastic Solo cups and a lot of clean-up: Flip Cup, Beer Pong, Beirut. But there is still a world of party entertainment out there that remains in the shadows of these Drinking Game Giants.
