Ah, Springtime. When you think Spring fashion, what comes to mind? Pretty pastels? Shy florals? Not for 2019.

2019 we are stepping up our fashion game and social media has been buzzing with new trends that we all need to get our hands on. Luckily, most of these trends are actually pretty easy to complete. Just start going through your closet, sitting up some thrift stores and get ready to walk down your streets like they're a runway.

1. Neon Green

It's more than a subtle pop of color. This Spring, the fashion is centered around being the center of attention. You won't go unnoticed with a neon green skirt, jacket, shirt or shoe.

2. "Milkmaid" vibes

Humble and lace is the new sexy black dress. Spring 2019 is heavy on a nod to country roots with blue jeans and lace. These pieces are typically loser fitting with bigger sleeves or a less tailored look, but can be oh so cute no matter what your weekend plans are.

3. Safari

Cargo pants are HOT again ladies. A lot of dark green, brown and khaki pants are roaming around recently. A mix of muted tones to create an eye-catching number. Stores have been carrying a lot of oversized jackets and jumpsuits that will make you ready for an African Safari.

4. Animal Print

Similar to the Safari look, animal print as been rolling out the stops this spring. Whether it's a bold dress, such as pictured above, or in a tiny neck scarf with your favorite t-shirt, animal print is here to stay and complete any look.

5. Hair Scarfs

This trend has been making sparks on the horizon but now it is here to make some serious ignition in the fashion world. Whether you're a multi-colored queen or a muted tone babe, there's no wrong way to rock a hair scarf.

6. Simple, muted nails

We're seeing less of the color and more of the fresh tones on nails this spring. The most popular colors appear to be soft pinks, brown, white and nude.

7. See through accessories

Perhaps started because of Ariana Grande, perhaps not, but clear fanny packs and bags have been all the rage recently. This means, you can't keep any secrets inside your bag, but it sure shows you're an open book.

8. Cropped shirts with layers

The cropped shirt look isn't a new trend at all, but adding a subtle layer over the crop top is. We're showing a little skin, but we're keeping the whole package a bit of a mystery. You can add a jean jacket, cardigan, etc. to any crop top to add a little extra oomph to your favorite look.

9. Lace body suits

What a MOMENT. Lace bodysuits are an easy way to make your outfit go from simple to sexy. There are hundreds of different styles for those who are a bit more modest to those who aren't afraid to show the world what their mama gave them.

10. Small printed patterns

From quirky strawberries to more mature dots, small printed patterns are popping up everywhere. It gives a minimalistic approach to making an outfit really stand out.

ASU Students Push For A Healthier Dining Hall To Counter 'Freshman 15' Fears

The freshman 15 is an avoidable curse, but many students will continue to follow into its trap.

Arizona State University students are pushing for change within the downtown Phoenix dining hall as they strive to avoid the infamous freshman 15.

The downtown Phoenix campus offers fewer dining options than the Tempe campus and has a less appetizing dining hall. The freshman 15 is a common scare among students living in the dorms, who are often freshman.

The freshman 15 is defined as a student who gains 15 pounds or more in their first year of college. Studies prove the average freshman does not exercise the right amount, is sleep deprived, has a poor diet, increases their stress level, alcohol consumption, and fatty food intake, which is most likely causing their weight gain.

Daniella Rudoy, a journalism major and fitness instructor at the SDFC, relived her freshman year as she provided tips for incoming freshman.

"There are a lot of workouts you can do in your dorm room as long as you have access to YouTube or a floor. You can go on a run, a walk, or do exercises that do not require equipment," Rudoy said in support of college fitness.

Rudoy said that mental health, fitness, and nutrition all correlate with one another.

"I follow the saying abs are made in the kitchen. So if you are working out day and night, but eating a giant pizza and chicken wings with a pack of beer when you come home you aren't doing yourself much good," Rudoy said.

The main cause for weight gain is increased alcohol consumption. 80 percent of college students drink and this includes binge drinking, which is unhealthy for many reasons.

Students who do not drink are most likely gaining weight because of their exposure to an all-you-can-eat dining hall. The downtown Phoenix campus offers a salad bar as their only consistent healthy option for students, therefore students are left eating hamburgers, fries, and pizza.

"I haven't been to the dining hall this semester. Last semester, I went because I had no other options. I am a vegetarian and the dining hall is not accommodating to those with allergies or food restrictions. I find it very difficult to find vegetarian options," Lexi Varrato, a journalism major said.

Varrato explained that she believes the freshman 15 is "100 percent real" and that incoming freshman should research their meal plans and ask their school how their dietary restrictions will be accommodated before purchasing a non-refundable meal plan.

Megan Tretter, a nursing major at Seattle University emphasized that not every dining hall is like ASU's and that the freshman 15 is "definitely not a problem" at her school.

"I always eat healthy at my dining hall. There are a lot of good and healthy options at Seattle University. I usually go to the smoothie line in the morning, have a salad for lunch, and make myself an acai bowl after work with avocado toast in our floor's kitchen," Tretter said in support of her school's strive for healthy options.

College students across the United States have healthier dining options than ASU, but many colleges still face the same problems that students here are facing.

Tara Shultz, a journalism major at ASU believes she has avoided the "very real" freshman 15 by living at home.

"I believe the freshman 15 targets dorm residence and first-year students who do not live at home as they do not have their parents as a guide and are forced to eat at a dining hall that only serves fatty foods," Shultz emphasized.

Lauren Hernandez

The downtown Phoenix campus offers students access to the SDFC, YMCA, and Taylor Place gym, where students can take group fitness classes, run on a track, play basketball, or swim. Alternative options for students are purchasing a membership at Orangetheory or EOS Fitness.

Most students agreed with journalism major Vanessa Gonzalez that they have little time to work out due to their workload, but many students like Varrato, Tretter, and Rudoy explained that they try to work out every day as it is a stress reliever and it enriches their mental health.

Steve Fiorentino, the owner of Powered Up Nutrition encourages college students to learn what they are putting in their bodies.

"I think it starts with nutrition. Students believe they can outwork a bad diet and I believe that is their number one mistake. My advice is to stop eating fast foods and start eating whole and healthy foods along with supplements," Fiorentino stated.

The freshman 15 is an avoidable curse, but many students will continue to follow into its trap. The campus dining hall is not always the reason to blame as students have the option to decrease their meal plans, become active, and make healthy choices!

Wake Up And Smell The Pollen: Spring Is The Worst Season Of All

Just because the we like the nice weather, doesn't mean we like Spring.

125

After we've struggled so long with the cold cold winter, almost everyone is looking forward to the rest of spring and the start of summer soon enough. Most people enjoy the nicer weather, but just because we like the nicer weather doesn't mean we like spring. Because honestly, spring is terrible and pretty much the worst season we have to go through.

Take apart the nice weather for now, what else do you really like about spring? Maybe the flowers blooming and trees growing leaves again? The longer days? More people going outside to play and hang rather than stay indoors all day? True, these things can be some of the best parts of spring, but all with a catch. People can love nice weather, but liking nice weather and liking spring isn't the same thing. Here are the reasons why spring is actually terrible and has no place to be called a favorite season.

The weather can't make up its mind

Seriously, it's a lovely 60 degrees on Tuesday, followed by 40 degrees on Wednesday, with a 75 on Thursday before dropping down to the 50s and 60s for the weekend again. There's no guarantee that the weather is gonna be nice one day and freezing the next, that's just how spring is and it's really annoying. Do I put the air on or not? Do I take out all my summer clothes or do I keep the hoodies and long-sleeved around? Is it time to open a window?

Plus we start going through the phase where it's freezing in the morning then too hot out in the afternoon, what are we supposed to dress for? When can I wear Capris or shorts!?

Allergies

For anyone like me that is allergic to pollen, flowers, trees, and basically, everything that is coming in full bloom and blast, spring is complete hell. The sneezing and the coughing and the runny nose and the watery eyes, spring is certainly not an allergy's best friend. And even if you're not someone who may have intense reactions at this time, chances are you're at least sneezing a bit too.

Where did these bugs come from?

It's warm out, but still cold enough for you to be set in this mindset that the bugs aren't really out yet. You may see a fly or some bees roaming, but no real bugs that get in your way. That is, that's what you think until you're on your way to class and you end up walking through a bunch of gnats.

It's too nice to be indoors

One of the only good parts of spring is the nice weather, obviously. But here comes the downfall: you're too busy to enjoy the weather!! Whether you're at work or school or dedicated to some other activity you may not want to be doing, it's so unbelievably beautiful out and you can't go outside and enjoy it because you're stuck at work, or in class, or doing some homework that's due tonight. This weather is some of the best you're gonna see, not too hot and not too cold, but your sorry self can't even enjoy it because that's just how it works in life.

Spring cleaning

No one likes to clean, but we all have to do a little "spring cleaning." It's very unfortunate, and because you really should take the time to adjust and clean (and the fact that everyone else is doing it means you gotta do it too), you'll be doing it too! It's dusty, it can be gross, and overall it's just not a fun thing you have to do.

Rain

Well, we all know what they say about April showers bringing May flowers, but seriously it's suppose to rain all week? And most of next week? So much for the great weather, it's all about the rain and the storms now.

And now you have to keep up with the outside

Better shake off last year's lawn mower and get some gas in there, because you're gonna start needing it. You're now entering the phrase where lawn upkeep is mandatory and you can't have your grass looking dead or overgrown. It's time to rev up that engine and start mowing your lawn, because if you don't, even for a week, you'll look like a mess!
