The 14 Best Drinks To Order This Syllabus Week

Hello college bars, I've missed you.

Drinking a mojito
Amanda Varin

Happy sylly week!

New semester, new you, new drinks. Going out to the bars in your college town is sometimes intimidating, there's not a direct menu, you'll see bottles of alcohol lined up from Monarch to Smirnoff and there are so many different flavors. I'm now 22 years old, so I've decided this year I need to stop shotgunning beers in a frat house; I'm evolving, ok? There are so many combinations with vodka, rum, and even whiskey that will taste so good it will get you dancing and maybe even singing some karaoke. I'm no expert, but I've ordered enough gross drinks to know some good ones.

Here are the 14 best drinks to order this syllabus week.

1. Vodka Sour

Vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup, this drink is sweet but also has a sour bite!

4. AMF

Adios!!!!! This is so good but will definitely get you blacked out.

6. Vodka Redbull/Rockstar

Tastes so good but will 100% sneak up on you and you will be very drunk.

7. Vodka Soda

A classic. Just ice, vodka, tonic water, and a lime slice. This definitely isn't the tastiest drink on this list but it is great if you're trying to cut out sugary alcohol and extra calories.

8. Malibu Pineapple

Pineapple juice and Malibu rum, this is a tropical treat you don't taste any alcohol in it.

9. Dirty Shirley

All the goodness of a Shirley Temple but with alcohol, they grow up so fast.

12. Lemon Drop

Perfectly lemony and perfectly sweet.

13. Whiskey Sour

Whiskey, lemon juice, sugar, and sometimes even a dash of egg white. Although at most college bars it's just whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar.

14. Cougarita

Exclusively at The Coug in Pullman, WA. A margarita, Wazzu style.

See y'all this year for some Cougaritas!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.

States such as Kentucky have closed all of their restaurants, schools, and businesses until December. Some governors have started to advise caution when celebrating the holidays, too. You may be thinking, 'is there any way to really enjoy Christmas during the pandemic?' In fact, there are ways to still celebrate the holiday safely. Here are 10 ways that you can still enjoy the holiday season without canceling any of your plans.

How The 'Friends' Theme Song Is Actually Describing 2020 — And It Couldn't BE More Accurate

This isn't our day, our week, our month, and definitely not our year...


Everyone knows the iconic Friends theme song and although we may have joked in previous years how relatable it is, here's a breakdown of the lyrics and how they are so 2020, we might never be able to listen to it again after 2020.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
