When it comes to college life, lanyards are a necessity. They're even more important than your phone. They hold your keys, your student ID, your debit card--all the must-haves. There is not a single thing more important to have on you at all times. Not one thing.

Because the lanyard is so extremely essential, it needs to be versatile as well. What if you don't have pockets? What if you don't want to wear it around your neck? Luckily for you, I've compiled nineteen different ways to wear your lanyard so that you're never tempted to leave it behind.


1. In your pocket.

This is my preferred method, as it allows for easy access, but it’s not as useful when you’ve realized that your new pants have fake pockets.


2. In your backpack.

This look is useful in the event that your new pants have fake pockets. You have to make sure to have some of it dangling out, though, so you don't have to go fishing around for it.


3. Wrapped around your hand.

This is the best way to wear your lanyard if you need to use your keys/card right away, but it doesn't allow for great dexterity.


4. Around your neck.

This way is exceptionally useful if you want everyone and their mother to know you're a first-year.


5. As a bracelet.

It’s cute, but not super practical because it might come off easily or swing around and hit stuff.


6. Through your belt loop.

Not always practical, but at least it’s not going anywhere.


7. As a belt.

Kind of a different approach to #6, but it really makes the lanyard doubly useful!


8. As a sash.

Relive your Scout days with this one. No one can steal it, and there's no way for you to lose it!


9. Wrapped around your thigh.

This one is similar to #8 in that it won't fall off and can't be removed without your detection.


10. As a ring.

This is one of my FAVE looks. It’s so cute! Everyone will be asking the symbolism if you wear it on certain fingers. You can tell your friends that you’re married to your school.


11. As a purse.

This is a purse idea I can get behind. It holds all your essentials! ID, credit card, and your keys!


12. Tucked into your pocket.

If you’re like my roommate and you like the practicality of #1 but you’re embarrassed of the lanyard hanging out, you can simply tuck it into your pocket for a nice, bulgy finish.


13. As an anklet.

So stylish. Bring anklets back into fashion with this one!


14. As a headband.

Cute, accessible, practical. Extremely fashionable. You’ll leave your friends wondering where you got it.


15. As an earring.

You'll never lose it!


16. On your glasses.

I can’t guarantee that they’ll help you see better; these might be more like fashion lenses.


17. In your shoelaces.

Super unique!


18. Like headphones.

Everyone will want a pair. The sound quality is even better than Beats. (Note: All sales are final, no refunds or returns.)


19. Don't.

Use the Force, alohomora, or telekinesis to open your door.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
