Duke It Out: Social Media Blackout

Schools all over have been experimenting with social media lately - some of them getting into it and some of them encouraging their students to stay out of it. Now Harrisburg University of Science and Tech are blocking all social media from the school's network including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and AIM for a week. They're not the first school to try a move like this, but my question is, is it right?

The 11 Things You Do In Your 20′s That You’ll Regret When You’re 40

Let’s face it: we all make stupid decisions. Like choosing a fifth over a review session, or bringing that guy home…who stole our iPod in the morning. That’s part of college life... and a big part of what makes it so memorable. But there are some choices that have longer lasting repercussions; things we do now that will haunt us later.

Why Are People Using Formspring?

Formspring in its current form has become a place where people can talk sh*t, and do some completely anonymously. Apparently, once you set up a page on there, you can comment on just about anything without ever having to list who you are. Postings range from actual questions (i.e. the original intentions) to vicious and evil comments ("You’re so fat," "No one likes you," "Why are you and your friends so ugly?"). Yeah, it's bad.

Coupled. From the Other Side of the Coin

Sarabeth here. But only for a short time, because I figured I could have my other half, Matt, write this week's article. I thought it'd be a fun change of pace for those who ever wondered what things were like from his point of view. I already know how great and wonderful he is, but I think it's important for other girls out there to see that there are really good guys to be had and when it comes to serious relationships, guys really aren't that different from us.

The World of Chatroulette

We’ve All Got the Internet Blues

So according to a recent study, the Internet is making us depressed. While the scientists behind the study link depression to the amount of time spent in a virtual world, I have a few of my own theories as to why the Internet is making us all very, very sad.

Let’s Stop With, OK?

I like gossip. You know, the pretty harmless kind: who hooked up with who at that party last week, who has a crush on who, who was spotted doing the walk of shame... Little tidbits that don't really matter. And really, who doesn't like that stuff?

Tuffy Luv Sez: Take A Picture, It’ll Last Longer

Dear Tuffy Luv, I broke up with my boyfriend of 2 years about a month ago. We chat a few times a week and haven't fought since the break up. But I have a favor to ask of him, and I know it's gonna hurt him because he'll think I don't trust him. I need him to erase the pictures I sent him while we were dating.

Technology Does Not a Relationship Make

We live, breathe and flirt in a world of high-tech, digital romance. And I can’t say with a straight face that I am not a user and abuser of texting/IMing/FB chatting when it comes to communicating with members of the opposite sex. But there are some instances where no Tweet can do justice to a face-to-face interaction when you’re wheeling and dealing in the game of love.

Life After College: Holiday Anxieties

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Eff You, Technology!

I am, without a doubt, addicted to technology. I spend 10 hours a day in front of my computer and the minute I step away, I'm checking my email/Facebook/Twitter/IMs/stock market reports from my iPhone. (Note: stock market reports are a real downer these days.)

For The Love of Love, Back Away From the Blackberry

In this digital age, we are never apart from the ones we love, at least not for too long. With smart phones, texting, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Skype, and SMS updates, we are just a press of a button away. We are closer to other people than we have ever been before. Even long distance relationships don’t seem that long-distance anymore.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: We’re Free!

We have a lot of freedom here in the wonderful U.S.A. Freedom that people around the world would die for. Freedom that people around the world do die for. But do we appreciate that freedom?

When you think of internet dating, you probably think about your best friend’s 59 year-old father and his many (failed) attempts to meet “the one” on Even if we were dismally lonely, I highly doubt most of us would allow ourselves to get so far as to post our own profile for the viewing pleasure of a middle-aged audience. But what if the dating site was geared towards college students?

Let it Rock: I Listen to Whatever the Internet Tells me to Listen to

When the Internets talk, I listen. Really. Think about how easy the Internet makes it to discover new music. Almost as easy as it is to find porn. Sometimes when I’m bored, I just browse the Internet to discover new bands and I’m constantly shocked by how many artists and bands I’ve never heard of until I see or hear them online.
