Your summer is defined by your soundtrack:why make it anything but amazing? These songs will keep you and your friends grooving at any hangout.

Memories are made with two things: music and friends. Here's some help with one of those factors.

1. "Redbone" -Childish Gambino

when you hear the first hit of the drum the tears start falling.

2. "XO Tour Llif3" -Lil Uzi Vert

If your friends don't accompany you in screaming "I don't really care if you cryyyy", they're not your friends.

3. "Sober" - Childish Gambino

the lyrics make everyone depressed, but it's still a bop.

4. "Young Dumb & Broke" - Khalid

We've all personally been in this situation (still are)

5. "Plug Walk" -Rich the Kid

Never makes sense but always gives you an emotional dance break between sad songs.

6. "Ball For Me" -Post Malone & Nicki Manaj

Posty is always a great choice- and then add the QUEEN.. It's a yes.

7. "Kids See Ghosts"-KIDS SEE GHOSTS

Cudi and Kanye define Summer cookout playlist with this.

8. "Soulmate" - Mac Miller

YOU MY SOULMATE. we can all admit we just want someone to sing this to us

9. "NBAYOUNGBOAT" -Lil Yachty and NBA

the song that will make you wanna get up on the table tops and dance.

10. "Campfire"- AMINE

it's old school. it's groovy. it's Amine... what more do you need?

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
