Girls Ask Guys: The Undeniable Truth

Finding dates for upcoming functions is like no stress you've experienced before.


Ah, school is back in full swing. The sun is beating, the clock tower is ringing and sorority girls are frantically trying to find potential dates for upcoming functions.

If you’re like me, you had no idea you would be signing up for this minimized version of hell. “Girls asking guys to be their dates? What kind of sick joke is this? How am I supposed to ask someone to be my date when I don’t even know how to talk to the male specimen?”

These were probably your exact thoughts and/or spoken words at the beginning of freshman year.

Most of LSU Greek Life attended single-sex high schools back in the day, so you’d think that you could get some informative advice from them. You and I both thought wrong. They have no idea what the hell they’re doing either.

You’d be surprised (or not) at how this situation brings out the crazy in sorority girls. 

Here is your typical, melodramatic conversation of three friends discussing (ranting) about the lucky fellows they’re going to invite: 

Friend 1: OK, so I’m going to bring Freddy*, that way you can bring his really hot friend Gabe*. 

Friend 2: Oh, no. I’ve only met Gabe once!!! But he is really cute, now that you say that. Well, Friend 3, you need to invite Kevin* because you met him like five months ago and you two totally hit it off. 

Friend 3: Will he even remember me though?!

All: (screams hysterically).

There you have it folks. The extra stress of finding dates is like no other stress you’ve seen or experienced before. 

If all else fails, ride solo for the night. Paint yourself a party cup and wear the stupid costume you want to wear. Hopefully your friends gave up on finding a date too and you can all go solo together.

 *Name dropping isn't nice.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
