  As summer comes to a close, it is always fun to stop and think about all the memories from the season. Every year there are new experiences to reminisce about—but almost every summer, there is a song that was your anthem for the season. The summer music scene has artists of every genre competing for that No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Whether an artist is trying to make a comeback like Justin Timberlake, or continue their musical hierarchy like Jay-Z, the summer brings out the best in artists. Sophomore Journalism major Anika Reed noticed that the radio showcased music from all different genres. READ MORE

  A recent fashion trend is all about the details.  This award season celebrities were modeling much more than beautiful gowns, shoes, and jewelry on the red carpets.  It wasn’t the most obvious accessory but it definitely made a bold statement. Many musicians and movie stars had unique manicures that set them apart from the crowd.   There were neutral nails, metallic nails, and those brave enough to add a pop of color with neon nails.  Some celebs went for the “ombré” look, having each nail painted a different shade of one color.   But the best manicures embraced patterns, studs, or crystals … Zooey Deschanel even had filmstrips painted on hers!

              This weeks forecast is steadily in the high 60's and low 70's with tons of sunshine and low chances of rain. This weeks calendar, however, is full of group projects, term papers, and cramming last minute assignments before the finals rush comes toppling down over us all.             The problem is, sunshine is literally a lifeline for so many after a cold, rainy winter. But finishing up the semester strong is absolutely critical for so many classes. What's a girl to do? Real life collegiettes tell us how they balance fun in the sun with pouding over their books.

Over the past few months, I have been on the hunt for summer journalism internships to add to my resume as a broadcast student. While scouring through emails about internship opportunities, however, I have seen a few common requirements: 1.     You must have a certain amount of experience to perform the required tasks; 2.     The employer usually want juniors, seniors, or recent graduates; 3.     The internship is unpaid.
If a student meets the above criteria, they have to ask themselves, “Would I rather work a whole summer and get paid at a job that has nothing to do with my career ambitions, or work in my field but struggle financially?” READ MORE

I always heard that balance was a hard thing to achieve in college but never had that much of a problem with it first semester because my schedule was not too overwhelming. READ MORE
