January 15, 2014 - 12:00am

Around this time of year, many of us are looking for summer internships or even real life jobs. If you’re anything like me, you might be wondering (panicking over) whether or not you are qualified for anything at all. While taking a break from swimming through hundreds of LinkedIn profiles and links on Google (Search: “What can I do with an English major?”) I realized there are many jobs that I might actually be qualified for. Who knows, maybe you’re qualified, too!   Job #1: Reality TV Star READ MORE

January 14, 2014 - 12:00am

Dear Collegiettes, Some of you may have just recently returned from a semester abroad. Some of you may be leaving for your adventures now. Either way, this relates to you. Whether we admit it or not, gaining weight abroad is one of our biggest fears. At least, it was for me. I recently studied abroad in Parma, Italy for a semester. Yes, you may also know it as the Bread Basket of Italy or the Food Capital of the world, that Parma. I went into my semester knowing that I was going to eat the best food in my entire life, and I went in accepting the fact that I might gain a little weight. What I did not realize, however, was how that took a toll on me. READ MORE

After two decades of serving as Boston’s mayor, Mayor Menino stepped down as mayor on Monday, January 6th.  A former BC alumni replaced him, Marty Walsh, who was inaugurated into office right here on the Boston College campus at Conte Forum. Although many of us are not permanent residents of the area, we consider Boston our home. For four years, we spend more time here amongst our peers and exploring the streets of Boston than anywhere else, so it is important to know what changes are coming to Boston. READ MORE

Sometimes doing bicep curls while standing there scanning the gym for hot guys just doesn’t cut it. For us BC girls, we like killing two birds with one stone, or getting toned with one move! Here are some of the best moves that work your whole body at once—even in your dorm when the Plex seems unbearable.   1.

Jump your legs back to your hands, and stand back up—that’s one! This move works: EVERYTHING--butt, shoulders, core, cardio READ MORE

By Remy Hassett
December 20, 2013 - 12:00am

The month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is probably my favorite time of the year. Yes, as we’ve grown older, this month has become less about counting down the days until Santa comes and more about endlessly writing papers and studying for exams.

Decorating with Christmas lights and all things red and green, drinking hot cocoa, and listening to Christmas music are all great ways to de-stress and help get you in a Christmas-y mood, but one of my favorite things to do is make Christmas candy!
