Theory: If The Gleeks Went To College, They’d Rule Their Respective Campuses

As the kids of McKinley High School enjoyed their summer vacations, much ado was made of the fact that—come tonight’s season premiere—Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) and Kurt Hummel (Emmy nominee Chris Colfer) will be seniors.

Campus Confidential: My Bank Account Is On A Diet

There’s one thing that really, really sucks about college. Yes, there’s no way around it: college costs an insanely large amount of money for which I personally think it’s borderline inhumane to even charge.

The Most Important Things We Learned In College

In college, you learn many things. A smattering of organic chemistry principles and formulas. An assortment of historic dates, and what exactly happened to lead to the events that went down on them.

I wouldn’t say that I was a nerd in high school. Although I have adopted the art of procrastination as ardently and with as much love as if it were a tiny puppy alone on the side of the road in a rainstorm, I did in fact manage to get some studying in. But despite…

The 10 Commandments Of College Dating

As a college grad, seeing the words “college” and “dating” together in one sentence almost seems like an oxymoron.
