10 Things College Kids ACTUALLY Wanna See Under The Christmas Tree This Year
Kari Shea

Christmas time is a time for giving and a time for receiving.

Giving gifts to younger kids and even older adults are usually pretty simple. One of the biggest things parents and relatives probably have a hard time with is what to get for a their college student. Because, we're kind of the middle between a teenager and adult. Our style and likes and interests and hobbies are constantly changing, it can be hard to keep up with. So, what do you get us?

Here are 10 things we college kids would ACTUALLY like to see under the tree this year:

1. Gas cards

I mean, I hate having to spend money on gas every week, we're already broke as it is. A gas card is a great gift for college students, helps us save a little money.

2. Pay a bill

C'mon help your struggling, broke college kid out. It's just one bill.

3. Pay a month of rent

I would be eternally grateful if my only Christmas gift was someone paying my rent for the month.

4. Room/apartment decor

It's our first little place we can call our own....kinda. Room and apartment decorations make perfect gifts for college girls, we love to make our place look home-y and chic.

5. Visa gift cards

These are perfect to college students. A lot of the time, your family doesn't know what to get you, Visa gift cards give us the freedom to pick out and buy what we want.

6. Any kind of food gift cards

We love to eat out. We love fast food. Starbucks, Chic fil a, Walmart(for groceries), you name it and we will probably put it to good use. We loooove food.

7. Kitchenware

A nice set of pots and pans is always nice, as well as a good set of dishes. They make great long-term gifts and they're a good "adult" gift too.

8. Lottery tickets

Let's test our luck and see how much money we can win.

9. Cash

I mean, you can never go wrong with giving a college student money.

10. Supplies

We're going to need new school supplies for the new semester coming up, we would actully really like them as Christmas gifts.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
