25 Reasons College Is Not At All Like Real Life

Ah, college. I remember the first day like it happened yesterday. The smell of new paint covering beer-stained dorm room walls. The RAs’ stale greetings in matching neon shirts and Sharpie’d name tags. Awkward, passing smiles from strange hallmates trailed by nervous parents. Hellish name games and forced social bonding. Little did I know that I…

Quick Poll: Is This Awesome Or Totally Awkward?

Picture it: You walk into your freshman dorm room and your roommate doesn’t have a regular extra long twin bed. Oh no. Instead, they’ve got this, a privacy pop up tent. Designed so that roommates can have privacy if they’re sexing, or watching “Dawson’s Creek,” or just trying to study, the tent comes in a…

Our Biggest Regrets About College Sex

College! It’s all about exposure to new ideas, learning skills for your future career, and, oh yeah, ceaseless romantic floundering.

Wear This, Not That: What To Put On To Go To Class

When you’re in college, it’s easy to forget that it’s not perfectly acceptable to wear your pajamas everywhere. People are doing it, so it must be okay, right?

You’re a semi-adult. Get your life together and put on a regular pair of pants, with an actual waist. College classes do count…

8 Things I Wish I Had Known About Money In College

Today, New York University costs around $43,000 annually for tuition alone. When I attended over 10 years ago, it was closer to $30,000 annually. If either of those two numbers make you feel short of breath, join me on the floor.

I was able to attend such an expensive school through a couple…

An Inner Monologue While Cramming For A Final

OK, I’ve waited til the last possible minute to start studying, but I think I should still be good. I mean, yeah, I could have started studying yesterday, or the day before, or anytime really in the past three months, but helllooooo, there were parties to attend and volleyball to play and late night cookie…

Girl Talk: Thoughts On Deferred Admission

It is simple, what happened. I was an eager-eyed and relatively coy 18-year-old who was convinced that I was going to attend any four year university for acting, because I was a Capital A Actress. I applied to many schools for acting, I performed earnest monologues in front of expressionless adults behind a folding table.

True Story: I’m Delaying Going To College

I can’t say that it was ever my concrete intent to eschew college altogether, but by the time I graduated high school by the skin of my teeth (yet with inexplicable honors in Astronomy), disillusioned and perpetually anxiety-ridden, I knew with all certainty that I didn’t want to see the inside of a classroom agai…

One Military Jacket, Three Ways

The military-inspired utility jacket has been staple of the average college kid’s wardrobe since the dawn of time (or at least since the invention of canvas). While it’s certainly a casual cover-up, there’s more than one way to wear it. In honor of Schooled Week, I’ve put together three outfits — for class, for a…

13 Signs You Attend A Women’s College (In GIFs!)

I attended a coed college and logged a lot of time in the Gender & Sexuality Studies Department, which is what a lot of other universities call Women’s Studies. We were predominantly women with a smattering of gay men and I assume some trans folks, although I personally didn’t know any. I remember the people…

Your college roommate can be your best friend or your most terrible, smelly nightmare. Colleges are supposed to hook you up with roommates you’ll at least be able to marginally get along with, but often it doesn’t exactly work out that way. I’m not sure exactly what I filled out on my freshman roommate form,…
