Aside from actually going to campus and asking the campus tour guide your questions, your only resource for learning about UCR is the website. There are a few things the UCR website doesn't tell you, such as how EFFING lit our school concerts are. Let's get one thing straight, I'm going on my second-year at UCR and the concerts I've seen so far have been dope. First things first, UCR has a total of 3 major school concerts throughout the year, Block Party, Heat, and Spring Splash. All three concerts have pretty big budgets, which helps us get some pretty dope artists. To put in perspective, my first Block Party, which was the first weekend of the start to my college career, featured GTA, Jeremih, and Sage The Gemini. For Spring Splash of the same year, we got Ty Dolla Sign, Trey Songz, RL Grime, and DJ Snake. 'Nuff said. All of the concerts are free for UCR students. Another thing helpful to know, probably really helpful, is that the dorms don't all look like what the online pictures look like. They show you the best rooms, but not all the rooms look like that, so be wary. A-I rooms don't look like the pictures, Lothian has a west side of the building, which looks pretty bad and has no AC. I think Pentland actually is the only one that look likes he pictures. Fun fact, UCR grows its own oranges and makes its own orange juice. You can get it fresh squeezed at the dining halls. UCR also won't tell you that it's a party school. Seriously, you can deny it, but its true. If you compare UCR to all the other UCs, we are one of the biggest party schools in the system, next to UCSB.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.
And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.
She's redefining anti-aging skincare.
Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
Every state is different, so get familiar with your county's regulations early!
The 2020 presidential election is coming up fast and it's important now more than ever to know the resources available to voters. With COVID-19, this election looks a bit different this year — mail will be slower, and polls will have longer lines and more health and safety regulations. Because of this, knowing where to register if you haven't already, checking your registration status, and requesting a vote-by-mail ballot is crucial information to be aware of.
Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.
'WandaVision' trailer had Marvel fans dying for more information.
We finally got a more in-depth look into the upcoming Disney+ Marvel series 'WandaVision' during the 2020 Emmy Awards. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany revive their roles as Wanda Maximoff and Vision from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this brand new trailer.
Hormone health impacts everything, including the workouts that are best for you.
Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) deal with a lot of uncertainty in their life. Between hormonal ups and downs, unpredictable weight gain, painful cyst ruptures, and infertility worries, their bodies are often under a lot of stress! A common symptom of PCOS is having a hard time losing weight — many women find themselves frustrated (or in pain) from traditional workout plans.
I sat down with Nikki Pebbles, a certified personal trainer and group fitness coach, to talk about the kind of workouts that are best for women who are dealing with PCOS.
Created solely with the Maybelline New York line, you'll get a glimpse of makeup done the Empire State way.
As a makeup artist who is always looking for bargain, good quality makeup, I can confidently say that Maybelline's New York line exceeds any high expectations I set. With only five steps and seven products, you can achieve the makeup looks rocked by models for one of the biggest fashions shows in the industry.
The direct makeup artist, Erin Parsons, also shared her statement about the makeup saying, "When you're on vacation, you don't really wear much makeup. We applied Maybelline New York Super Stay Matte Ink Coffee Edition in Espresso Enthusiast and Chai Genius sinve the models had to wear masks following application, and we knew that the makeup would not move."
While we patiently await OBX season two on Netflix, we can just jam to and watch "Hot Stuff" in the meantime.
As if Chase Stokes, 28, and Madelyn Cline, 22, aren't cute enough in real life, we also get to swoon over them as John B and Sarah Cameron in "Outer Banks" AND now in Kygo's new music video, "Hot Stuff." Feel free to gush over them in the video below.
It's a lot of what I don't eat, too.
I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.
The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.
Step into the new season with your best foot forward.
Fall is (almost) here, and we could not be more excited. As the weather slowly but surely changes, so will your wardrobe. From booties to oxfords, this fall's shoe trends have something for everyone.
Sure, you might be comfy at home in your slippers, but with shoes this cute, you'll be sporting them when you're out and about or just hanging out in your living room.
I Rated The Most Sexist Comments I've Received In The Past Month And, Folks, Misogyny Is Alive And Real
Misogyny isn't dead, and if you think it is, you're about to be disappointed.
I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.
