Happy Schooled Week! After you get over the initial thrill of returning to class, the fun part begins — figuring out just how much you can get away with. Like, do you really need to make every session of that 8 a.m. politics seminar? Maybe. But maybe not. We’ve put together this comprehensive flowchart to help you figure out just which classes you can skip and which ones are totally necessary.
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 date, and for a party — that show just how versatile this jacket is. Keep reading »
The truth is, even after filling out one of those unhelpful roommate questionnaires, you really have no idea what kind of person you’ll be sharing a tiny living space with your freshman year of college and whether or not they’ll end up ruining your life. A lucky few will end up with a roomie they get along with well enough — that’s the goal. The even luckier few will become besties with their roommate. That’s the college equivalent of winning $10,000 from a scratch-off lottery ticket. I hope this happens for you, but it probably won’t. You must prepare for the worst — a hoarder, someone who sleeps cradling her bong, a person who feels entitled to have sex on your bed. Here’s some advice for how to deal with different possible roomies (within reason). If you think your roommate is going to harm herself or you, seek professional help. Otherwise, take these tips, be patient and try to make it to your sophomore year alive — when you’ll get to pick your roommate.

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 there as passionate, supportive and dedicated, but also very opinionated. Many a time I have wished that I instead applied to a women’s college — Barnard College, which is part of Columbia University, is the one I had my eye on — because every time all my girl friends who went to women’s colleges tell me about it, it sounds Like 17-year-old Jessica would have fit right in. Oh well, there is always grad school right. (If I win the lottery or a rich relative dies.)
After the jump here are 13 signs* you know you went to a women’s college — illustrated in GIFs! Keep reading »
