By Amanda Corrado
March 19, 2013 - 8:00pm

The moment has finally arrived. You’re sitting at your laptop, checking the time every .2 seconds, just sweating the minutes away waiting for your acceptance e-mail. All of a sudden, a bold unread email pops onto your screen, and you can barely move your fingers the inch to click it. This is the dream job you’ve been praying for; the job you went through the interview process for weeks for, and worked so hard at achieving – and it all comes down to this e-mail, stating whether or not you’ve made it. Your eyes quickly scan the entire page for some instant hint of an answer, only to find that one, heartbreaking sentence: “We are sorry to inform you…” READ MORE

Ever around campus and see a bunch of girls walking around covered in bruises? Or even with the occasional black eye? No, these girls did not get into a fight outside Boots on Friday night, they are members of the Panther Women’s Rugby Football Club! A club team here at Pitt since 2002, these girls have accomplished a lot throughout the years, even being nationally ranked last year. Having the privilege to know some of these girls personally, I can tell you that this is a great team to be part of. Work hard, play hard – that’s definitely their motto. PWRFC is a great way to meet friends for life and get more involved here at Pitt. READ MORE

Like to sing and dance but would rather watch others on stage than be up there yourself? Come out to Greek Sing 2013 and watch the greek organizations amaze the audience with a ten-minute self-choreographed dance routine that they have been working on since December. The Field House will be filled with all organizations around campus and is the 2nd largest philanthropy event of the year! All of the money raised will go towards the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Every year this competition gets fierce and is something everyone should see at least once during their time at Pitt. So, Friday afternoon, get off your couch, walk up the hill and don’t miss a beat!   Photo...

  Have you found yourself lusting over your warm weather wardrobe? Reminiscing on the days of denim shorts, flowy sundresses, and strappy sandals?

Touch Me Here, Don't Touch Me There

When it comes to having a good experience in the bedroom, it has occurred to many that there’s not a lot of open banter amongst women, or by women, about what they like.  Recently, I came across the September issue of Cosmopolitan magazine and there was an article about the 25 moves that men want their women to do with them in bed.  The article titled “25 Sex Moves He Wishes You’d Use” comprised a list of the 25 things that a group of guys said that they wish their partners would do, and they did not hold back.

The Top Apps You NEED On Your Phone NOW!

When people think of spring cleaning, they think of donating winter clothes and cleaning every square inch of their house. I, on the other hand, being the technology-loving person I am, think of clearing out the apps on my iPhone that I don’t use and replacing them with the hottest apps to date.  Most people haven’t downloaded a new app since getting Draw Something or Words With Friends. This is understandable; between studying and going out and pretending you are planning your future, it’s difficult to look for the coolest apps. I am here to help. READ MORE
