This week, we're asking for your choice: Do you prefer sitting in the front or the back of the classroom? After reading these tips, you may opt to sit head of the class from now on.
I was a back of the class kinda girl. I opted to sit near the last row in hopes the professor wouldn't call on me (I was never very good at public speaking). While sitting in the back of the class I worked on [...]
A fall trend we love this year is the dolman sleeve top. The perfect dolman top has extra large arm holes and cinches off in a tight cuff around the elbow, bonus points if it hangs off the shoulder. These tops are comfy and can be flattering to any body shape. With roots in both yoga wear and 80’s fashion, it’s no wonder this style is a hit.
If you want to try this look, finding t [...]
For me, the worst part about pulling an all-nighter in college was feeling alone. While all of my roommates slept (or were out partying) I was in my apartment studying away in silence. At times it felt like I was the only person in the world, awake at that very moment. Not sure if you feel the same way in the dark hours of the night, but if you do, remember this, most likely A) your neighbor [...]
...this necklace. It's a custom fingerprint necklace with a person's fingerprint on one side of the heart and his or her name on the other. I'm absolutely in love with this idea. It's a bit pricey at $190, but if you're looking for a great gift to send to mom while you're away at school, this would be perfect.
“I couldn’t tell you what I learned from school, but I could tell you a story or two.” Okay, so maybe Asher Roth couldn’t tell you what he learned in college, but for the rest of us, we have to take a thing or two away from our college classes. (Afterall, most of us are putting ourselves into debt indefinitely just to be here!) Unfortunately, that means we have to spend a lot of time study [...]

The East Coast is expecting a major storm this weekend—the wrath of Hurricane Irene.

Non-perishable food, including snacks, and paper or plastic plates and utensi [...]
I came across numerous stories of flickering lights, unexplained noises and mysterious figures while researching this week’s Freaky Friday tale. Read on for the spookiest stories from Emporia State University.
Albert Taylor Hall
Emporia’s largest auditorium, Albert Taylor Hall plays host to concerts, speakers and public events and is also home to a well-known campus legend. Many students [...]
The first line of a book can either hook you completely or majorly disappoint. Authors certainly aim for love at first line. I personally don't judge a book by it's cover, but I definitely form instant opinions based on the first few words of a novel.
And it looks like I'm not alone-- Stylist reviewed its favorite works of literature and compiled a list of the most classic and iconic openi [...]
We are in for a rain-filled weekend as Hurricane Irene makes her way to NJ. Luckily we’ll have a distraction from the dreary weather as MTV’s annual Video Music Awards show airs live this Sunday night (if we don’t lose power, that is). Lady Gaga will kick off the show, and given her entrance last year in the egg, I’m sure she has something planned that will keep us talking about her for da [...]
