Feeling Hungry? Here Are The 5 Best Snacks For College Students

Are you a college freshman still struggling to remember to eat three times a day? Are you a high school senior already planning ahead? (Good for you, because I'm definitely in the first camp.) Here are five foods you don't want to forget when making your college grocery list:

1. Animal Crackers

These are good for any time of day, they're super quick and easy to eat, and they travel well if you need a snack on the run!

2. Easy Mac

While we all know real mac 'n' cheese is worlds better, sometimes you just need a fast snack on the go! (Just remember, if you're concerned about carcinogens, dump the contents into a glass bowl before you microwave it!)

3. Bananas

Not only are they a great source of potassium, they're also an easy, healthy, Gwen-Stefani-endorsed breakfast option. Just make sure you don't buy more than you will eat, because they go bad quickly.

4. Cereal


You just can't go wrong with this classic. It's so much more than a breakfast food: dry or with your favorite kind of milk, it can be a snack, a late-night dinner, or really whatever you want it to be.

5. Frozen Vegetables

Last, but certainly not least, make sure you never run out of veggies. It's the thing you will least expect to miss, but dining hall living can leave you feeling less than satisfied in the vegetable department. Plus, they pretty much never go bad. So pack some peas and carrots!

Make sure you grab all these foods when you make your next grocery run! What is your favorite quick college snack?

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
