Do's and Dont's for Surviving Dead Week

By Allison Otis
December 4, 2012 - 2:22pm

1. DO download SelfControl.  Can't seem to work with five minutes without checking Twitter or Facebook?  Simply download the app, enter your "forbidden websites," and voila!  Bye bye, distractions. 2. DON'T start a new television series.  If you're anything like me, one episode quickly turns to five then ten.  Save yourself the time and just wait until after finals to start that new show.

  Going to a California school has obvious perks—great weather, great diversity, and great opportunities. Still, there's another perk that's often overlooked too…great fashion! Stanford students have great style, and the Stanford apparel definitely reflects that by offering beachy pieces designed by Hurley and preppy outfits by Brooks Brothers. But dannnngg are the prices can be steep! Fortunately, HerCampus has compiled a list of 7 items of clothing that won't empty your wallet.    1) Plaid Flannel Pajama Shorts ($18.95) READ MORE

Dormestic Godess: Brownies (in the Microwave)!

By Katherine Cheng
November 5, 2012 - 12:46pm

  Not only is this a fun activity to do with a group of friends, but also you completely eliminate the hassle of using and cleaning a massive amount of equipment or utensils. Hot, gooey, dark chocolaty brownies in a few short minutes using the microwave and simple ingredients? We can call them Brownies A La Anytime. The fact that these brownies provide instant gratification and that they may be too easy to whip up is a wondrous thing (or very possibly a bad thing…). While having 4 a day is not recommended, feel free to indulge once in a while. READ MORE

Lucy Davis '15

It's the little things that make Stanford what it is, oh like finding out that girl down the hall has published a book, co-founded the next-big startup or competed in the London Olympics.  And that's where Lucy Davis comes in!  After casually mentioning in class she'd be absent for the Olympic trials, I knew Her Campus had to sit down to find out more and voila! When did you first start riding horses, and how did you get into it?
I grew up around horses and have been on horseback since i could walk but i formally started taking lessons around age 5. READ MORE

Omnomnom: Mayfield Café and Bakery

By Elizabeth Rosen
October 8, 2012 - 8:00pm

This summer, I decided to go where no Rosen has gone before, a daring and frightful land of responsibility, energy, and hormonal teenagers. That’s right: camp counselor for Stanford hopefuls otherwise known as EPGY. Every couple of days, I found myself wanting – no, needing – nothing more than to escape the high school madness and collect myself in the outside world over a hearty brunch and my newest summer reading conquest (The Beautiful and the Damned). Don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing bunch of high school students, but… high school students. Yeesh. READ MORE
