Put This On Your iPod: Social Network Soundtrack

Anybody else out there already having to read volumes upon volumes for their classes? WTF? It's only the second week back, professors! Can't a girl catch a little post-break break? Le sigh.

We’ve All Been There: Waiting For Your Grades

You know the grades are curved, but you also know that leaving the last essay blank is not going to bode well on your overall score. You talked to your friends in the class and compared answers. You’ve flipped through your notes again and again. You’ve attempted to calculate your score in your head.

12 Ways Universities Can Help Students De-Stress During Finals

Not only have you not started your holiday shopping, but you haven't started that 20-page paper that's due in 12 hours. Welcome to finals week!

Candy Dish: Is NOTHING Sacred in Hollywood Anymore?

Courtney Cox and David Arquette split. I cry. • A few signs your prof doesn't like you. • Brett Favre: let another sports/sex scandal begin! • Could this man be our next president?! • Willy Wonka gum about to become a reality?? ZOMG! • What's the best couple costume you've ever seen?

Professors Don’t Dig Chatspeak

Yeah, it may seem totes obvi to you, but it seems that many students are taking their AIM lingo to class and their professors aren't LOLing. In fact, they're getting pretty pissed. And who wouldn't when students are starting their emails off with, "Yo, teach"? (For realz.)

The Senior Files: OMG I’m Graduating Soon

Today, I was walking across campus on the way to my last class before Spring Break (CABO, HERE I COME!) and I had a HOLY SH*T moment. You know, one of those defining moments when reality slaps you hard across the face prompting you to stop dead in your tracks and scream HOLY SH*T. Well, today reality slapped me with the inevitable fact that I am graduating from college in three months.

Coupled. How Far is Too Far?

As probably anyone will tell you, one of the biggest dangers to a relationship is infidelity (and maybe weekly Real Housewives marathons). We all know (or have dated) the total skeez-bag frat boy who only cared about scoring with chicks and the only person he was faithful to was the guy who sold him his Keystone Light

Bored To Death. Literally.

So we all know that boredom can lead to a lot of bad things: eating, online shopping, texting the ex BF and telling him that you still love him (OK, maybe that's just me). But did you know boredom can actually kill you? Yeah, that's what scientists in London are saying.

My TA Was a Creepster

With the start of a new quarter comes the excitement of new classes and a new schedule. And new TAs. While my friends are frantically researching classes that both fill their requirements and leave Friday open, I'm zoning out at my desk dreaming (and praying) about a tall, handsome, smart, romantic, witty discussion leader.

We’ve All Been There: Waiting For Grades

Your stomach has been churning since you walked out of your last exam. You know the grades are curved, but you also know that leaving the last essay blank is not going to bode well on your overall score. You talked to your friends in the class and compared answers. You’ve flipped through your notes again and again. You’ve attempted to calculate your score in your head.

College Q&A: Do I Really Have to Go To Lecture?

OK, so I have a 8am lecture 3 days a week next semester. Even better, it’s a requirement which I DO NOT want to take. There are apparently over 200 people in the class, the prof puts the notes online, he’s apparently horribly boring and I really don’t feel like getting up at 7 to go. Especially since my next class isn’t until 2pm. Annoying.

Overheard: Finals Edition

(Two girls, studying in the library.) Girl 1: Yeah, I'll probably start sleeping here too. Under the tables or something. Girl 2: No, I said "sleeping with girls" in the library. That's different. Girl 1: Oh. Yeah, I guess it is.

Would You Rather…[POLL]

Would you rather have to go about college life normally for a day except that you're naked or retake all of the tests you took in your worst class (without having any time to study) because your Prof lost the grades?
