We've All Been There: The One Night Stand

You’re at a house party or a bar... or in line to get into a house party or bar. It doesn’t matter. Wherever you are, you’ve just spotted a very handsome boy and you want to talk to him. You turn to your friends and point him out.

We’ve All Been There: The Twin Bed Debacle

As you are setting your stuff on the floor, he grabs you and you make your way to the bed. There’s kissing, groping and a nearly unsuccessful go at your bra hooks. Things are going fine (great, even) until he attempts to get on top of you. You roll on your back when – SMACK – you hit the wall.

The Morning After: The Bedroom Treasure Hunt

I saw him at my first sorority mixer. He was the social chair of his fraternity and from the moment he checked my name on the guest list, I was in love. He looked dreamy in his designer jeans and flip flops, his hair perfectly floppy. And he knew my name. Well, at least for that moment.

College Q&A: Public Enemy Number One

I’m in a pickle. Yes, I just said pickle. I recently drunkenly made out with a boy who lives on my hall. If that’s not bad enough, his ex GF is in, like, all of my classes and saw it happen (it was at a frat party....I know, embarrassing). Now she’s seriously giving me major sh*t for it and even bitched me out in the hallway in front of one of our lectures.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Blame It On The A-A-A-A-A-Alcohol

As 2009 was coming to a close I vowed that I'd make some big changes for the year to come, namely to act like the adult that I am and not like the rockstar college girl I once was. I told myself I'd drink more responsibly, that I didn't need to get drunk to have fun, and that I might finally be at the age when dancing on stages is no longer socially acceptable.

Friends Share Secrets, Not Fluids

“Tonight let’s be lovers…and tomorrow we’ll go back to being friends.” Sorry Dave. While I fancy your rock band and appreciate the length you went to in order to solicit platonic sex from your besties, I simply cannot endorse these lyrics. (Sorry, male friends.)

Ask A Dude: I Refuse To Be A Friend With Benefits

Hey Dude, I've done the Friends With Benefits thing, and, to say the least, I'm not cut out for it. Now I have this amazing guy in my life who I consider my best friend, but I'm confused over how I'm supposed to know if he likes me as in a relationship sense or if he just wants to sleep with me.

College Q&A. You Got Questions? We Got The Truth.

College. Sigh. It's unlike any other time in your life. It has its own set of rules, it's own unique circumstances. And it's not always easy to navigate.! Every week I'll be tackling your questions about college. From classes to keggers, I'll do my best to respond and be your Pez dispenser of collegiate wisdom.

5 Guys We Won’t Go Home With

It's a well-known fact that guys will go home with just about anything when they're drunk. It's not that they're desperate, they're just...well, guys. And guys like sex. So it's not surprising that you don't exactly have to be a genius/supermodel to have a special (or not-so-special) one-night engagement with a dude at the bar.

We’ve All Been There: The Twin Extra Long

You’re in a sweaty basement playing beer pong. You and your partner – who you happened to pick up next to the keg – have finally been taken down. You chug the final four beers from the other side of the table and let the next team take their spots.

The Morning After: Blinded By Lust

We've all seen how boys act when they want to make out with you at a club. First, they come up behind you and begin to dance. Maybe you introduce yourselves, maybe you don’t. If they are a good dancer, you continue dancing, and if they suck, you text your friend that you have to go to the bathroom and she comes and pretends that she has to use the facilities at this exact second.

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).

The Morning After: Pillow Fight!

I hadn’t known John* very well, so when I got a text at 11pm saying “I’m bored, come hang out” I should have immediately seen the booty call red flag. Especially because we had set up a first date for the next night, but John was hot and he cracked me up so I was excited to see him.

Get a Freakin’ Room: Top 5 Annoying Couple-isms.

Sure, I've been in love before, but in a watch-the-sunrise-over-bong-rips kinda way, not a need-to-keep-my-hand-on-your-ass-to-claim-my-territory kinda way.
