17 DCOMs That College Students Should Rewatch Right Now

17 DCOMs That College Students Should Rewatch Right Now

You might be surprised how many you forgot about.

Ah, the DCOMs. AKA the Disney Channel Original Movies that we all grew up with. There was never anything better than getting excited for a premiere with your friends, or seeing that one of your favorites was "up next on Disney Channel." Recently I discovered how fun it is to sit down with your college friends and watch some DCOMs over again. You may not have known each other when you were eight years old, but you definitely had the same movie taste.

In this pursuit, I also found that a lot of movies are getting lost in the past, or that some people skipped over a few classics when they were growing up (like "Stuck in the Suburbs"?? How can you forget that?). So take this list and bask in the nostalgia as you recall the 17 DCOMs you need to revisit.

17. Cow Belles

Aly and AJ Michalka had more than just the hit “Potential Breakup Song” on their resumes – they starred in this classic film about sisterhood and the importance of hard work.

16. The Even Stevens Movie

And you thought your family was dysfunctional.

15. Read It and Weep

A genuinely a cute movie in which real-life sisters Kay and Danielle Panabaker play Jamie and her alter ego. It’s available on Netflix now.

14. The Thirteenth Year

This movie gave me completely unrealistic expectations about my 13th birthday. I couldn’t overcome my disappointment of not turning into a mermaid, but it will always be a great coming-of-age movie nonetheless.

13. The Ultimate Christmas Present

Catching a glimpse at the magic of Santa was on every kid’s Christmas list each year, and each year we had to settle for this movie instead. Or maybe “settle” is the wrong word. This was a magical movie that made California kids dream pretty big.

12. Get a Clue

Lindsay Lohan is your favorite detective in this movie that taught you everything you need to know about 2002 street style.

11. Twitches

One of the two absolute staples during the Halloween season, and everyone loves Tia and Tamara Mowry from "Sister, Sister".

10. Smart House

Not really sure why the movie that practically predicted the invention of Siri is so overlooked but I was honestly addicted to this movie as a kid. Also thinking about it now, it's a lowkey horror movie that was definitely too wild for a 7-year-old.

9. Halloweentown

"Halloweentown" never gets old. It’s everyone’s go-to in October, and there’s nothing like this magical world. It only has one flaw: who decided it was okay to completely replace Kimberly J. Brown as Marnie in the fourth installment, "Return to Halloweentown"? Did they think we were just going to ignore it?

8. Zenon

For some reason my 16-year-old sister simply has no recollection of these movies at all but all three "Zenon" movies were a total staple in my childhood. Also, space fashion and a young Raven Symone are very important.

7. The Cheetah Girls

THE SONGS! Instant classics created by Raven Symone and crew like “Cinderella” and “Cheetah Sisters” will never go out of style, even if the cheetah print tracksuits do.

6. Camp Rock

It came a little bit later in the game than a lot of movies on this list, but who can resist the Jonas Brothers? No one. Ever.

5. Cadet Kelly

Girl power to the max by the always-lovely Hilary Duff makes for a surprisingly great film! You can find this one on Netflix.

4. Jump In!

Also on Netflix, Corbin Bleu is a boxer who unexpectedly joins a jump-roping team in Brooklyn. This is where the song “Push It to the Limit” by Bleu comes from, so you should really be watching this one again.

3. The Luck of the Irish

This movie was always a must-watch around St. Patrick’s Day, chronicling the life of a popular basketball player as he learns about his Irish family heritage. You can always catch it on Disney Channel around the month of March!

2. Stuck in the Suburbs

It honestly shocks me that people don’t remember this movie. When watched it with my friends recently and I claimed it was one of my favorite movies, no one believed me until I sang all the words to all the Jordan Cahill songs. Also, yes, that is totally Taran Killam from SNL.

1. High School Musical

This needs no explanation.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

5 Cheap Summer Concerts That Are Worth The Trip To Camden, NJ

Nothing like a good outdoor concert to cure any "summertime sadness!"

Well, y'all, it's finally here. Summer. And that means that one of my favorite past-times is back in season -- outdoor concerts. Now, I've only been to a handful, mostly with my family, but outdoor concerts have the potential to be the most fun that you'll have the whole summer! As a West Chester resident, there aren't too many venues that hold outdoor concerts near us, but the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey is one of the best, especially with their impressively cheap selection of lawn seats (my personal favorite seating for any concert). And this summer, BB&T has some impressive names performing. With over 35 performances set for before August's end, I took the liberty of compiling the top five performing in Camden that you will not want to miss this summer, especially not at these prices!
