When it comes to being 17, thoughts of finishing high school or going to college jump through the minds of those anticipating the transition from minor to legal adult. For Malala Yousafzai, being 17 comes with commendable bravery, devotion to education and the Nobel Peace Prize. Wise beyond her years, Yousafzai earned the honor by fearlessly dedicating her life to raising awareness for the rights of young girls and education for all. What is most admirable is her motivation to do this despite the danger around her. READ MORE

October 21, 2014 - 2:39pm

We aren’t giving Halloween enough love in the food department. For Thanksgiving, bake a giant turkey and about twenty casseroles, and for Christmas, bake a ham and about one hundred desserts. If you don’t, it’s like sacrilege. Halloween kicks off the entire holiday season so it’s a little more awesome than we give it credit for! So forget the cutesy Pinterest replica cupcakes, and make a dish that actually scares someone! Wouldn’t that be so much more fun?!? Anyone can make the marshmallow ghosts, and everyone will think they are great, but they are kind of forgettable. READ MORE

On September 30 we were excited to get a visit from People StyleWatch, which invited everyone to its Celebrity Stylist on Campus tour on the Greenspace!  We met with StyleWatch’s TV Stylist & Market Editor Joiee Thorpe, who showed us how to wear the trends for every event this semester.   We were thrilled to get a personal appointment with Joiee.  After all, college is where we come to learn, and Joiee schooled us on finding designer duds with student funds.  One of her go-to brands is Nordstrom Rack, and with better deals and fashions than anything at the mall, it’s my new go-to as well!

The Power Couple

The power couple; two iconic people coming together in a unified force to dominate the social scene with good looks, charitable acts, and beautiful babies. From Jay-Z and Beyoncé to Will and Kate, the power couple is a major force of both celebrity and literal royalty. We’ve seen some couples come and go and have invested ourselves in their public relationships portrayed in the media. Some of us may have even shed a tear or two when Brittany Spears and Justin Timberlake split, or when Brad Pitt left Jennifer Anniston for Angelina Jolie. But now, Justin is happily married to the stunning Jessica Biel and Brangelina have finally tied the knot and are raising an army of children who hit celebrity status the second they were recognized as the children of a...

There Really is a Formula for Basic White Girl

By Lindy Olive
October 10, 2014 - 9:00am

One late night while studying I found a lovely depiction of, well, me. It was written on a white board on the second floor in RBD, telling everyone the formula for a “basic white girl.” I wanted to laugh, and yes, I did laugh. Some of it is true. Starbucks is pretty good, I have a Pinterest account, and I wear over-sized t-shirts. However, I don’t use the phrase “can’t even” and I have never had a PSL but I know young women all around me do those things. The more I read the more I didn’t like what this guy had to say about me and my friends. I apparently feel superior, care about my daddy’s money over love, and want to get my MRS degree. The formula made me feel personally attacked, using a stereotype to fill the details of my life. ...
