March 23, 2014 - 2:49pm

Not sure which classes to take next fall? Of course, you'll want to get major requirements and Gen. Eds. out of the way (how thrilling...), but there's always a little extra room for electives. Luckily, this fall's electives look better than ever, so we scoped out some of the coolest ones for your pre-registration pleasure. Obviously, there are plenty of other awesome classes that didn't make the list--we simply chose intro-level or the occasional 200-level course since those are the easiest for non-majors to access. Take a peek at our top choices; you might just stumble upon a course that strikes your fancy! AA201 001 Foundations of Arts Administration READ MORE

Top: American Eagle. Pants: BDG. Scarf: Hand-knitted by my grandmother. Shoes: Dansko clogs (haven't taken them off since I bought them). How would you describe your style? My style is uniquely me; I try to find clothes that I feel comfortable and confident in. Most of my clothes are darker colors and earth tones so when I put outfits together I like to add a pop of color like I did with the scarf today. What's your go-to class style? READ MORE

You hate yourself for watching it, but it's a guilty pleasure. The latest season of The Bachelor just wrapped up, and we can't help but admit that we followed and indulged in the adventures, laughs, and tears. Although we love Juan Pablo--and his accent--we got a reality check from Andi about Juan Pablo and the show itself. We seem to get side-swept by the little daughter (Camila) that he has, thinking that a father as sweet as he is couldn't be capable of evil. What can we say; we love to hate the bachelor. But, this season’s of The Bachelor has made several concerns more visible. We saw the TRUE colors of Juan Pablo, and we weren't falling head over heels. Here's why: READ MORE

Spring break has finally arrived, and we hope all you collegiettes are spending the week somewhere warm! (Or recreating the sun and surf feel with home-blended piña coladas, at least.) Still, with so much fun to be had, the last thing we 21+ collegiettes want to be worrying about is how our fruity, frozen drinks are affecting our waistlines. Spring break is like one week-long cheat day, to be fair, but if you're hoping not to stray too far from a diet, it can't hurt to cut calories the easy way: by drinking even more delicious substitutes! Find out which drinks to pick and which drinks to skip; after all, you worked hard for that bikini bod! Advice courtesy of one of HC Skidmore's licensed bartenders! Skip:...
