For the last 3 spring breaks in a row you’ve wished you could do something a little more memorable than wandering around campus guessing when the cafeteria was going to open up again. If you don't want a repeat of that this year, you've got to do something to change it. It doesn’t matter how much money you have or don’t have and it doesn’t matter where you are, if you keep sitting around in your dorm room expecting fun to come waltzing through your door, then the result may be a week spent watching Fresh Prince reruns. Which isn’t bad, I guess, if that’s what you were looking for.


Every spring break movie includes someone getting drunk and hooking up on a beach, but if flashing a bunch of strangers and not remembering the last three nights in a row isn't you're thing, just don't do it. A fun spring break, though google images seems to think otherwise, does not have to include a Girls Gone Wild Scenario. Of course, if that is your thing, just be safe and keep in mind that your parents search google and Facebook too. Never know where evidence of your wild week will end up.


Regardless of everything, this spring break is your opportunity to do whatever the heck you want to do as long as that thing brings a smile to your face and some peace of mind. Want to watch Netflix for the entire week? Go for it. Want to stare at the ceiling and listen to Fink until you start questioning your own existence? More power you ya’. Maybe what makes you happy is reading a few magazines and watching Youtube videos. Who needs parties and beaches when you’ve got a world at your fingertips and little to no essays to write. Just remember that in a few days, your soul belongs to the college system once again so you better live it up.


Any cliché quote list wouldn’t be complete without YOLO and this article is no exception. Spring break only comes around once a year folks, so get out there and live it up. While lounging around is fun and doing the same old can be great, but be open to doing something new and exciting. Eat something weird, go someplace strange and chat up a couple people you’ve never seen before and probably won’t ever see again. Be safe, but also be daring folks. Have fun and do it your way. To put a spin on yet another cliché quote, you only get four college springs breaks, but if you do them right, that’s all you’ll need.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
