The semester is starting to pick up and with it the assignments are starting to pile up as well. At times, just looking at the stack of papers and notes in front of you is enough to make you want to hibernate until the summer rolls around. With so many topics covered within each class, it's hard to stay organized which, in turn, makes studying and reviewing the subject matter even harder. The key [...]
A quick Google search for ghosts at Saint Louis University brings up more than 2 million results...literally. Luckily for me, a dedicated Facebook group created by students of SLU was among the first few links I researched, and here I found all of the information I needed for this week's Freaky Friday post.
It became clear from browsing the posts that the Saint Louis University Paranormal Inves [...]
I've always been a huge fan of "upcycling" - using old objects for new and creative purposes (remember the T-shirt Pillows from a few weeks ago?). So when I came across my stash of soup waiting to be eaten, I was inspired...by the cans. Why not get even MORE bang for my buck and make use of not just the soup inside, but the container it comes in? A key factor in my dorm-life diet, soup cans were i [...]
We've always been a fan of solid colors; they look great on everybody and never go out of style. But this winter, we're really going crazy over all types of patterns! Floral, animal print, geometric - the possibilities are endless. Patterns add a whimsical sort of fun to any outfit and definitely make your ensemble stand out. We're bringing you ways to subtly incorporate this trend into your every [...]
If you're like me, you know that the wintertime always starts out fun. There are new sweaters to wear, flavored hot chocolates to drink, and warm fireplaces to snuggle up by. But as the season drags on, the excitement begins to wear off. The cold settles in, it gets dark sooner, and even your skin and hair can get temperamental. The mild weather of spring and sunny heat of summer seem like far off [...]
As a college student, you probably think of popcorn as a delicious snack that is easy to make within the limited confines of a dorm room. However, do you get tired of the same old salt-and-butter routine? Then look no further! We came across this mouth-watering recipe on Belly Bytes, a website dedicated to all things delicious, and couldn't resist sharing it with our College Juice readers. It comb [...]
It has been less than three weeks since we welcomed in 2012 but it's already National Ditch Your Resolution Day! We hope you're still working toward yours (after using our easy guide on how to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions, of course) but just in case you're struggling, we thought we'd check in on you and bring a little motivation!
When working towards your New Year's Resolution, keep in mind [...]
You know the deal - every year you start out as a clean, mean, organized machine. That is, until you realize how much easier it is to use your desk as a coat rack/make-up counter/ping pong table (you get the idea). Think your messy desk is beyond repair? We're here to help you reclaim your space and keep it neat and orderly for the rest of the semester!
Elimination Time - Go through your desk, [...]
Yesterday might as well have been Fashion Week for Animals. It was National Dress Up Your Pet Day! Despite being part of an animal-loving bunch, I won't lie - when I was younger I thought people who placed bows on their cats or sweaters on their dogs were a little weird. That is, until I discovered how absolutely adorable the results can be. I am a very firm believer that anything that irritates [...]
The semester might have just started, but that doesn't mean it's too early to start planning your Spring Break traveling extravaganza. We're not referring to the clichéd, wild spring break as seen in movies. Instead, we have our sights set on the chance to see some really cool places without even leaving the country. So whether you're looking for a trip on a budget, a multi-destination road trip, [...]
