By Becca Rich
April 13, 2011 - 2:58pm

In recent weeks, I have heard countless stories of "mean girls" in college. Emily Costello, another WVU Her Campus writer, wrote an awesome article on the mean girl generation back when the new year began. She hit the nail right on the head when she said that girls today are extremely competitive and feel that they need to be catty in order to be better. I want to add on to what she said and find out from you if I'm the only one that  finds this new trend ridiculous. READ MORE
