8 Summer Date Night Ideas At And Around Arizona State University

This article is perfect for new Sun Devils trying to beat the heat. All of these can be planned relatively last minute as well.

1. Baseball Game

Chase Field is super fun, and thanks to our retractable roof you can escape the heat! It's easy to get cheap, nose-bleed seats last minute. Even better, depending on who we're playing, you can get relatively good seats inexpensively.

2. Drive-In Movie

West Wind Drive-In Theaters is one of the only drive-in theaters in the valley. It's super cute and is an experience in itself! General admission is actually cheaper than a lot of theaters nearby. I recommend grabbing some food and blankets and setting up a cute camp in the back of your car or truck.

3. Paddle Boating

Renting a paddle boat (or pedal boat) at Tempe Town Lake can be relatively cheap and such a cute, cheesy date (like in 10 Things I Hate About You!!). It's especially fun at night, but keep in mind they close at 8:00 on weekdays. Make a night of it and pack a picnic to eat by the lake after!

4. Stargazing

It's difficult to properly stargaze in the valley due to light pollution, but the Gilbert Rotary Centennial Observatory makes it easier! It's open on Friday and Saturday nights and is a great memory.

5. Ice Skating

During the summer, Ice Den Chandler offers $5 Friday night public skating. This is the ultimate way to beat the heat! If you and your partner or friends end up loving it, I highly recommend City Skate during the winter. It's an outdoor ice skating rink in downtown Phoenix that's always decorated super cute for the holidays!

6. Old Movie Showing

If you liked the idea of a drive-in movie, or you're just generally a movie lover, you have to check out Alamo Draft House. This is a dine-in theater (with really good food that can run a little pricey, heads up) that plays both new and old movies. I always keep an eye on their website because they often have really fun showings of things like sing-a-longs! The Tempe location is pretty close to the ASU campus.

7. Pottery Painting

As You Wish is a pottery painting place in Tempe Marketplace that's super fun for a first date or a group of friends! I also love going there to make gifts. It can run about $30 per person once you account for the studio fee, so keep that in mind.

8. Night Hike

Night hiking is super fun and can be great for escaping the heat as well. City Spot is a great, super light walk on South Mountain that leads to an amazing view of the valley. Just like paddle boating, you can make a night of it and pack some food!

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
