10 Classic College Halloween Costumes

10 Classic College Halloween Costumes

We've all worn 'em.

Halloween is my new favorite holiday. No not because of the candy or because of carving pumpkins, but because of costumes. I used to hate Halloween. It was stressful trying to find one costume that was school appropriate, funny, cute, and all my friends agreed on. However now in college, not only do I need a Halloween costume, I need at least three with others as a back up plan. Although this might seem stressful, it ended up being my favorite part about Halloween this year. This does mean that anywhere you go, there will likely be ten other girls wearing a slightly similar costume as you. Here are ten of the Classic College Girl Halloween Costumes:

1. Angel

All white and an $8 halo from Amazon? Yes please.

2. Devil

All red and some devil horns borrowed from a girl who wore them the night before

3. Cat

Everyone looks good in Black.

4. Anything with Ears

5. Boxer

A robe, sports bra, and spandex.

5. Jersey of Some Sort

Every girl should bring one to college. Easiest of outfits as you only need to throw one on.

6. Bunny

High Hefner died so basically everyone will be a bunny at some point during Halloween.

7. Cheerleader

A skirt and two pig tails.

8. Army Soldier

Forever 21 had a great line of denim army skirts this year.

9. Lifeguard

A red bathing suit and a whistle, you can't go wrong.

10. Risky Business

Truly the easiest costume. Ask one of your guy friends for a dress shirt and you're good to go.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
