Web Spy: Stingy Campus

Winter Break is awesome: there are no tests to study for, you get to spend time with your friends and family, and you can get lots of sleep. The worst part of Winter Break, however, is that it just seems to go by too quickly. Sooner than you probably want to think about, you'll have to start getting ready for next semester by buying books, registering for classes and moving back in to the dorms.

We've All Been There: The Online Fight

Your best friend totally stabbed you in the back…again. You don’t even know why you are friends with her anymore. Ok, so she is really fun to go out with and is the best person to lay in bed and watch a movie with, but the back stabbing and sh*t-talking has got to stop.

Tuffy Luv Gets Bugged About Beds

So to start, this is humiliating, but last Friday night I peed my bed. I'm a 24 year old grad student and live in the dorms at my school. I have no idea what happened, and this was a completely random event. By no means am I a bedwetter...anyways, my roommate found out (it was pretty easy, she was awake when I woke up soaked...), which was even more embarrassing.

Resolutions for the Annoying People in Your Life

It’s almost the big 20-11 and that means it’s time to make your list of New Year’s Resolutions. Or more importantly make resolutions for all the absolutely annoying people around you -- or should we say, resolutions to help you deal with them better. You know, so you don't strangle anyone this year.

We’ve All Been There: After-Thanksgiving Stress

In order to maximize your Thanksgiving break, you took the last flight back to campus. You lugged your oh-my-god-why-is-this-so-heavy luggage - now overflowing with clean laundry, Black Friday goodies and Gladwear filled with leftovers - from the airport to your house/apartment/dorm room.

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. And, you’re going to make more money than them in a few years!

The 7 People Who Will Drive You Crazy Freshman Year

Freshman year is an incredible experience. For many, it’s the first taste of Keystone freedom, the first foray into frat parties out into the world. You'll drink with meet people from all walks of life. You'll quickly wonder how you ever survived without your newfound friends.

The Starting Line: My First Week of College

So here I sit in my dorm room listening to Shakira's Waka Waka playing on repeat and sweating from shaking it like a She Wolf. Needless to say, the first days of college have been treating me well.

We’ve All Been There: Move-in Day

After a long drive and an even longer wait to get a prime spot by the curb, you get out of the car (where you were pressed between the door and a chest of plastic drawers for the past three hours) and start unloading your life onto the sidewalk.

The Five Lies Your Older Friends Told You About Freshman Year

So you’re going to college. You got your GPA up and your admissions essay down, you got in, and now you’re out! Happy times are here. Your final days are characterized by blasting Lil' Wayne with the sunroof open and going to lunch with the people with whom you’ve spent the last four, eight, or even 12 years of your life in school.

Goodbye, Parents! Seriously, Get Out

s an upperclassman, your parents have probably learned the ropes by now. They call when they know you’re going to be sober, and you call when you need your debit card refilled. The youngins, on the other hand, have yet to teach their folks these difficult lessons. Forget that they have to deal with Mom checking in at 7:30 on a hungover Sunday morning.

September is coming at us full force and for the first time in 15 years, it means absolutely nothing to me. Yup, as a jobless, broke, living on my parents' couch college graduate I'm not going back to school this year. It's weird. It's confusing. It's really, really sad.

The Weekly Ten: Why It Sucks Living With the BF

About 90% of the time, I heart my boyfriend. He's so great to me, he's adorable and it's just an all-around nice time being in a healthy, normal relationship. I love him. I love him. I really love him. (I just want to make sure I'm clear here.) I love him so much we've taken the big step to move in together, which made sense considering how much time he was staying over my apartment.
