DCAL_HBD_OLVA_DPK

Although the room is small, there's still so many opportunities to make the space your own and fill it with color. Whether it's with bright linens, rugs, or wall art, your residence hall is your space to express yourself. Whichever way you decide to decorate, make sure that you set up a plan with your roommate if you have one to make sure that it's okay with them.

Campus Backup Software

It's no surprise that college students aren't the most organized bunch. They often forget important tasks because their minds are so consumed with homework and school commitments.

One of the most detrimental things that can happen to a college student is their laptop/computer crashing and losing all of their important files. Term papers, class schedules, phone numbers, pictures - you name it. All of these things are … [Read more...]

5 Tips For Answering Writing Prompts

typed paper & edits

Ever since the 5th grade, I can remember having worksheets handed out with hypothetical situations such as: "If Sara has 9 apples, how many would she have left over if she gave two of them away??" The problem with this? Well, it didn't really matter if you answered with the correct amount of apples, because if you didn't answer the writing prompt with complete sentences you'd still get deducted points. It took me up until about 9th grade to start reciting the question at the beginning of … [Read more...]

What’s That Smell?

dirtydormroom

College students everywhere are known for their less than spotless dorm rooms, littered with socks, trash and everything in between. It's not usually a problem for them either, until they trip over a hairdryer getting ready for their 8 a.m. lecture or drink a bottle of lotion instead of their Aquafina in the middle of the night. I might be over exaggerating just a tad, but let's be honest: dorm rooms aren't usually known for their grade-A cleanliness rating. Not unless they have a live in … [Read more...]
