Colleges Offering Support To Students After Election Results Revealed

As the election results were finalized with Donald Trump’s surprising win, Colleges through out the United States took steps to help their students overcome their fears for the future. Colleges and Universities throughout the United States took steps to ensure their students were comforted after Trump’s victory. At Cornell University, students gathered for a Cry In, where professors offered tissues and hot chocolate to upset students. At Tuft’s University, students were encouraged to participate in Arts & Crafts opportunities. At the University of Kansas, students were permitted to attend a counseling office where they could play with play dough and therapy dogs instead of going to class. At Rollins College, students engaged in meaningful dialog with professors and trusted faculty members to express their feelings in a confidential manner.

While colleges and Universities throughout the United States are being commended by parents, how much support is too much?

Through out the United States, colleges and Universities have utilized different methods of supporting their students after the election. While it is important for students to engage in meaningful dialog concerning major current events, sometimes adults give too much support to a generation of Americans who are already given a bad reputation for being weak. College is the four-year period of becoming an adult. Students learn about themselves and eventually move on to bigger and better things. There will be multiple times during the course of one’s life where he or she will not get what they want. The reality is that if we do not get what we want in life, life still goes on. Exams must be administered and completed to the best of one’s ability. Class must still be attended. Meetings will not be postponed in the real world.

While the election may be hard to process for many, the best way to overcome grief is to move on from it. Enjoy the opportunities that come your way. No one knew the real future of the nation, regardless of the outcome of the election. Continue to vote in the next primaries, and enjoy the next four years.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
