Buy yourself a Venti Starbucks and spend a few hours at Boston Public Library or the Barnes & Noble at Prudential checking out travel guides before you leave. Create a bucket list and bring it with you to tape on your wall. This way, you won’t forget all the things you want to do while abroad.
If you have an iPhone, download helpful apps like Viber, iTranslate, Skype, World Lens, Google Maps and XE Currency prior to departing.
Take videos, not just pictures! While pictures are great, there’s something about watching a video that takes you back to that moment. While it might feel awkward to randomly hit record, you’ll end up cherishing those videos the most.
Cliché? Yes, but you need to keep a journal. Not doing this is the one regret you always hear from students. If you need some inspiration, go to the Barneys at Copley Place and buy yourself a Smythson notes diary. Their covers feature cute phrases like, “Game On” and “Make It Happen” and they’re the perfect size for travel.

Hey Northeastern Collegiettes! As you all know, spring break is just around the corner. While this 30-degree weather may make it difficult to process the thought of spring break, the sun, bathing suits, and an endless supply of sandals, it can never be too early to start exploring the new spring trends. After all, aren’t we sick of bundling up in our sweaters and yanking on boots over our thick socks? Believe it or not, it’s now the beginning of March and time to move on to the days and styles of layer-less bliss.
Too busy hiding under your covers and winter coat to realize the upcoming trends that are soon to explode? Don’t worry; Her Campus has you covered just in time for spring break. Here’s a guide to the latest trends in clothing, shoes, and accessories that are bound to hit the shelves of your favorite stores this season.
As far as clothing trends, bermuda shorts are a must-have this season—who knew! This unexpected trend was seen all over the New York runways, proving to be flattering, chic, and best of all, comfortable. These slouchy, unrevealing shorts accommodate all body types, allowing girls of all shapes and sizes to feel stylish and confident. Can I get a resounding “phew” from all the girls out there? So put away those high-waisted, cheeky denims, and make way for a more comfortable style for everyone!
Name: Katie Frost
Hometown: Houston, Texas
Year at NU: Freshman
Major: International Affairs.
What are you involved with at NU? I'm involved in an acappella group called Treble on Huntington. I’m also an ambassador of the NUin Program Alumni.
What is your favorite thing about NU? The ability to have the campus feel in the middle of a metropolitan city. You get the best of both worlds.
Guilty Pleasure: I get so into TV shows and before I know it I've watched 8 seasons in two weeks.
Favorite spot in Boston: A bench on the North End that overlooks the water. It's so peaceful and picture-perfect.
What are five things Northeastern students should do in Boston? Take a duck tour, go to a Red Sox game, eat a cannoli in the North End, go to the Museum of Science, and see the view from the top of the Prudential Center.
Who are your role models? I would say Ellen Degeneres is a huge role model because she's honest and places such a high importance on being yourself no matter what others will think. She also doesn't believe in humor at the expense of others, which is admirable.
What was your experience with NUin London? It was a great experience. It was a really good way to ease into college and I met a lot of great people including my now very close friend group.
Movie-lovers: it is almost time. And when I say movie lovers, I am not referencing those who consider themselves movie lovers, but in actuality are fans of nothing more than the occasional chick-flick. I’m talking those of you who are into those respectable, often long, complex movies that make you think, laugh, and cry, and are critically acclaimed.
It’s Oscar Time.
It’s time to bring out the printed ballots and put our prediction skills to the test, because tonight brings to us the biggest movie award show of the year. Before the esteemed academy’s decisions are made known, lets do a little prediction of the big guns. Because lets be real, no offense to the countless efforts that went into the less talked about categories, but what is even the difference between sound mixing and sound editing, and how many of your typical college students see documentary shorts?
So how do we predict such a thing? The Academy has been known to throw us for a loop every once and awhile. There are multiple facets playing a part in one’s own prediction-making process: personal biases, having read countless other predictions online, particular movie’s fare at the Golden Globe’s, number of nominations movies received, and so on. If you got money or worse, personal pride, staked on these ventures, you better do your research. I’m no expert, but I’ve done my homework myself, so check out my picks in the next few pages!

Name: Connor Doherty
Where you’re from/grew up: I’m from Michigan.... But actually I’m from the quaint city of Beverly, MA where nothing historically, culturally, or socially relevant has ever happened (but we do have like 7 Dunkin Donuts.)
Major/minor: I’m majoring in Communications and Political Science.
How long have you been involved in Her Campus? This is my second semester with Her Campus.
What made you decide to get involved in Her Campus? At first, I didn’t think I could join Her Campus because I was under the impression boys weren’t allowed to, but when I found out otherwise I joined in a heartbeat. Her Campus has everything I love: girls who are both pretty and classy, everything pop culture and sassy advice articles.
What do you like to do in your spare time? When I’m not catching up on Dance Moms, Pretty Little Liars and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I spend my time on Pinterest and avoiding the gym. But in reality, I also like to do theater and I write for another magazine on campus.
What are your favorite things about NU/Boston? My favorite thing about Boston is that it has everything you could ever want from a city while still being small enough to feel comfortable in. Being from the area, I love how familiar Boston is to me and how easy it is to travel through. My favorite thing about NU is its co-op program because hopefully it will make it easier for me to land a job in the future so that I can be able to pay for my Panera Bread addiction.
The Northeastern men's hockey team faces Boston College in the championship Beanpot game. In the semi-final round, Northeastern beat Boston University with a final score of 3-2. This was the team's first win over BU since 1988, which is also the last year the huskies won the Beanpot tournament. Coincidence? Fate? I guess we'll have to wait and see. Make sure to buy tickets to support the huskies!
