Throwdown of the Lady Bloggers

Who says girls shouldn't fight? When it comes to the female bloggers we rounded up for our Most Influential Women poll, our list of nominees is about as fierce as it gets. Whether you read their posts religiously, or roll your eyes at their "real" lives (are we the only ones who think it's all too good to be true?), there's no denying the title of Most Influential Blogger is something to get scrappy over.

Okay ladies, so here’s something you didn’t know. 80% of admissions officers are now using Facebook to learn more about their applicants, and that a student’s social media presence does in fact effect their decisions.

Stop Hating On Liberal Arts Majors

As a senior in college, I’m scared to graduate. I’m terrified of turning my tassel because it’ll mean I’m leaving a world of over caffeinated classes, themed parties in Greek life, and apparently the opportunity to play competitive Quidditch .

The Real 7 Reasons Your Roommates Hate You

The Huffington Post created this gem of a slideshow several days ago. Liz O’Neill claims that the usual reasons your roommates loathe you (you’re a slob, a mooch, etc.) are veils for deeper, subtler issues. Actually, they hate you because you are prettier than them.

Intern Diaries: Dealing With Downtime

If your internship is anything like mine, not every hour in your 9-5 day is filled with important tasks and urgent errands. Although I certainly have things to keep me occupied, a less than full schedule can make the time spent in your little cubicle feel awfully long and completely brutal.
