8 Classic Ideas For Your Next PowerPoint Night

Here's to a fun and memorable night ahead!

Friends on PPT Night
Amanda Brennan

The latest trend circulating around college kids? PowerPoint night. Everyone creates a silly presentation either about the friend group, unpopular opinions, pop culture, you name it. Make it as fun and as creative as you want! You want to be thaaaaat friend who "exposes" everyone in the group? Go for it. Or, do you want to rank every Taylor Swift album? Yeah, you can do that too.

Here are some of my best PowerPoint night ideas, after participating in a few myself.

"If each one of you were a candy bar you'd be..."

Assign everyone in your friend group a type of candy! Maybe your "mom friend" is an Almond Joy or your "sweet and caring friend" is a Jolly Rancher?

"Ranking each song on ________'s newest album!"

Taylor Swift

Choose your favorite artist and roast them to your heart's content. Have a least favorite song? Call it out. Is there one constantly on repeat? Blast it till your friends can't take it anymore!

"Ranking our friend group on who's most to least likely to do psychedelic drugs"



Gotta shoutout my pal Bella on this one. When she got around to me, she said I would "simply decline." She's not wrong!

Assign everyone a word!! 

This is what we did last time. Hence why Bella had to incorporate the word "psychedelic" into her title. We all submitted the most RANDOM of words into a generator. Then, it assigned each one of us a word to use in the title of our presentation. It really helped to get our creative juices flowing

"How you'd all die in Hogwarts"


Amanda Brennan

Okay, ya, sounds gory I KNOW. But, it made for a very comical Zoom. 95% of my friends absolutely love Harry Potter so we had a Harry Potter themed night last fall. I instead made a killer presentation about the one and only Mr. Harry Styles, since I'm not the biggest Potter fan.

Honestly, who doesn't love just staring at a screen of dogs for a while? Rank some of the breeds, tell a story about your dog, throw in some dog memes. You do you.

"Ranking a bunch of celebrities I would punch in the face if I had the opportunity"

one direction slap Giphy

I stole this one from a Tik Tok. This could be a fun one to show some personality. What are your opinions on the Kardashians? Or One Direction? Or the cast of the Avengers? Go all over the place!

The best style trends from our elementary school days

THROWBACK TIME! What a good opportunity to include some real photo gems. Make sure you include some iconic fits from Justice...neon pink, crazy sparkles and peace signs included.

These are only a few ideas to help make your PowerPoint night a memorable one! You know your friends best, so you'll know what style of presentation will be the greatest hit! Show your personality and have fun with it! Use those silly backgrounds teachers always wanted you to stay away from. Use a million different fonts and colors. Have fun!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
