In my last article I talked about the main reasons why people become Hooked on Kpop. In this article, I want to highlight Kpop idols that have the ability to be “hair chameleons”. In other words, there are multiple singers that are able to dye and style their hair in outrageous ways but always look good!

Residence Tower is one of the oldest buildings on campus that hasn’t been renovated yet, and has been called "The Projects" of Towson.  You’ve heard that it has lofted beds and dread the thought of having to literally climb in and out of bed every day.

           The most bittersweet part of the year has arrived. Summer is around the corner; it’s so close it’s practically at our fingertips. The scent of sunscreen and coconut tanning oil in the air.
