By Lindsay Marum
October 30, 2014 - 1:00pm

The music industry doesn’t have the best track record for it’s depiction of women; we’re constantly referred to as “shorties” or “sexy bitches” by rappers, and depicted as skinny, well-endowed strippers in music videos.

October 27, 2014 - 2:07pm

Now that we’ve hit the midterm-rich, increasingly-cold October/November phase, it’s time to face up to the fact that it’s fall.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the best and worst parts of Boston in the fall. The Best: READ MORE

…Because “smile” and “be on time” don’t cut it anymore. Whether you’re going on co-op or searching for a legit job, odds are you’ll have to go through an interview first. Thankfully, one of the biggest perks of attending Northeastern is that you’ll probably be an interview-pro by the time you graduate.

After conducting a rather extensive Internet search followed by a roommate questionnaire, I present to you ten tips I hope you’ll find both fresh and helpful for your next interview.       1.    Prepare READ MORE
