By Lehigh Contributor
March 20, 2014 - 3:31pm

Dear Lehigh, I don’t know if you have heard all the rave lately but there is new app called Yik Yak which you can download on the app store (it’s free) and allows you to share whatever you want and is basically anonymous.

However, it is not cool, in fact it is immature, callous and cruel to our community. READ MORE

But, in college, sometimes you feel forced to do one thing and one thing only, and that’s your major. You have all of your extra-curriculars surround around this field of study. You only become close with the professors in this department (since, obviously, you’re fishing for that beautiful letter of recommendation that will land you that dream job). You even find yourself only going to the library with people in your major after a while. READ MORE

March 6, 2014 - 1:37pm

It feels like Christmas was just yesterday, and now Lent is upon us! Lent is a religious season celebrated by Christians between Ash Wednesday (March 5th this year) and Easter! For 40 days and 40 nights, Christians traditionally give up something they enjoy, or do something to better themselves in order to prepare for Easter.  For those of you who don’t celebrate, it’s similar to a New Years Resolution!  You don’t need to be Christian to enjoy in the Lenten tradition, it could just be a good excuse to make some positive change in your life! Check out my ideas for what you can do during Lent this year! 1. Giving Up Sweets READ MORE
