Everyone is starting to get settled in their classes by now. Week 3 is stressful and sadly sometimes it will get worse but let me offer you some tips.

1. Have a calendar!!

Please write your assignments in a calendar. I struggle so much with remembering deadlines and I think it’s important to have a calendar full of them! You might even put them due a few days earlier and work ahead

2. Group your classes

By that I mean don’t make all of your math and science work be done on the same day. Do some math then do some English. Then do some science with something else another day. Don’t make all of your hard work be done on the same days.

3. Goals

You have to set goals. Make it your goal for the week to not stay out passed 10 pm until your homework is done. Make it a goal to not leave on Friday night until all your homework for the weekend is done.

4. Don’t do all of your homework at once. 

Don’t spend more than a few hours a day on homework. Don’t over work yourself just to finish deadlines.

5. Relax.

You aren’t the only stressed one. You will be okay. Take some time out of the week to do the thing that calms your soul.

Remember that college is supposed to be fun and not stressful all of the time. Take a deep breath, it will all be okay.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
