5 Delicious And Easy Fall Recipes For College Students

Looking for an easy fall themed recipe for you and your friends to make to celebrate the start of the fall season? These recipes that take 10-30 minutes to make are for you!

1. Roasted butternut squash

I'll be honest, I love anything butternut squash related. Whether it's a side dish or a soup, butternut squash will truly give you a taste of fall this season. For this Roasted Butternut Squash recipe, you'll just need a large butternut squash, salt, pepper, any other spices you might like, and hopefully a sharp knife to cut through the squash.

2. Pumpkin, mushroom, and spinach pasta

This Pumpkin, Mushroom, and Spinach Pasta recipe has a great variety of spices, vegetables, and autumnal tastes that will definitely satisfy your taste buds and need for fall vibes. With a total cook and prep time of 30 minutes, you could make this for yourself or with your roommates with ease! This healthy and filling vegetarian dish could be your new favorite fall dish!

3. Classic pumpkin roll

Of course I have to include a pumpkin-based dessert recipe for this list. With only 25 minutes of total prep and cook time, you'll have a sweet treat for you and your friends in just under half an hour! To make less of a mess while making the pumpkin roll, lift the cake from the pan and roll the hot cake up inside the parchment paper it was cooking on. If you do this instead of turning the cake onto a towel, the cake won't crack or stick to the towel. Enjoy!

4. Apple crisp in a mug

If pumpkin isn't your vibe for the day, here is an Apple Crisp in a Mug recipe for you! With a total prep and cook time of 10 minutes, this might be the dream recipe for a college student with a sweet tooth cramming for midterms. All you need to do is dice up your favorite kind of apple, add some dry and wet ingredients, and make the crumb topping to top it all off. If you're feeling extra nice and have an extra mug on hand, maybe you can make another for your roommate!

5. Harvest fall salad

I could go on and on with fall-based dessert recipes, but I wanted to include an easy-to-make salad for your fall picnic or get together needs. This Harvest Fall Salad recipe only takes 18 minutes to make and includes great fruit, cheese, and protein options and an apple cider vinegar based dressing. If you're looking for a vegetarian version, you can cut out the bacon and maybe add chopped squash or your favorite fruit or vegetable!

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
