  The most important accessory that completes every outfit in your closet (other than a pair of Louboutins of course) is a good manicure. Whether you’re waving to someone, shaking their hand, or giving them a high-five, people are forced to look at your hands every day. This means a good manicure is vital for making an impression on someone. No one wants to look at bare chipped nails, but everyone loves a compliment on a fresh manicure. READ MORE

  I don't want to go home. It’s halfway through April, and not only am I stressing out about finals, I’m also even less excited for what’s going to happen after them- going home. Don’t get me wrong, I’m ready for summer, but a summer at home is not exactly something I’m looking forward to.

  Ari Stern (CAS ’13) recently played an eight-year-old girl named Ruby of the strawberry-jelly family who just wanted to go to grape-jelly school. Such is the life of an improv performer. “In a set we did recently, the person we interviewed had grape jelly in their fridge and we asked them if they had any other sort of jelly and they said ‘no only grape,’” explains Stern. “So when we did the set there was this whole story arc of this strawberry jelly family in a grape jelly neighborhood, and their daughter Ruby who was building "bridges" between the two flavors. We like to parallel social themes. Those are some my favorite moments.” READ MORE

But collegiettes, what keeps me going is knowing that there’s about 20-something days left till summer vacation. READ MORE
