What Does Grilled Cheese Have To Do With Ending Poverty?
Granger Meador

What does grilled cheese have to do with world poverty? A lot actually. FeelGood is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty by 2030, by selling grilled cheese. I know it sounds out there, but hear me out. It works.

So how does it work? Many campuses around the country have FeelGood chapter, in which a grilled cheese deli is hosted, and the money (donations) collected for the grilled cheese is given in and distributed to 4 charities: Choice Humanitarian, The Hunger Project, Water for People, and the Pachamama Alliance. That's obviously a simplified version, but that is the basis of this organization.

So why am I bringing this to your attention? Because it is important. Not only the mission that all chapter of FeelGood dedicates their time to but what it also what it gives to those involved. Everyone involved can generally agree Deli days, are the best days.

At DelVal, our delis are on Tuesdays, and it definately is the best day of the week. Recently I had been asked the question as to why exactly I am a part of this organization, and why I dedicate my time. One of the reasons is that simply, it is a way to do my part. It is an easy way to bring awareness, and help where help is needed. I come from a family of people who work to help people for a living. The ideals of my childhood through this has made a lasting impact on me, and the opportunity to help by doing something so simple to me.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
