Be the Leslie Knope of whatever you do.

Work Study Positions as Parks and Rec Characters

The college experience is known for its ability to dry up the wallets of 20-somethings everywhere. As April Ludgate put it: "Time is money, money is power, power is pizza, and pizza is knowledge," and college students don't have time for anything. Yet again "Parks and Rec" gives a perfect description of the collegiate lifestyle.

1. Teacher's Assistant: Leslie Knope

They've probably told you at some point during office hours or after class that they are working on their thesis and haven't slept in three days. You worry but know it's in the job description.

2. Alumni Organization: Andy Dwyer

What do they do? Why are they on campus? Questions that will only be answered after graduation.

3. Financial Aid: April Ludgate

They don't want to be there talking about your lack of money as much as you do. Wish them a good day, they need it.

4. Maintenance: Ron Swanson

The people behind the scenes, making things happen. Even though every time you see them they appear to be completely free.

5. Campus Coffee Shop: Tom Haverford

They aren't judging you for getting coffee at 10 p.m., everyone understands. They see you at your most tired and most vulnerable: paying $5+ for a cup of coffee.

6. Library: Ben Wyatt

They live in the library, and know quite a lot about it. Instead of walking back and forth past the desk in search of something, just ask, they can help!

7. Bookstore: Donna Meagle

They just sold three pairs of $40 sweatpants to a broke college student, congratulate them and hide your wallet. Remember that even though they might get paid by commission, your money is precious and you don't need five college shirts.

8. Dining Hall: Jerry Gergich

The most misunderstood people ever. Please say thank you if you see them in the dining hall, they worked really hard to prepare all that food.

9. Gym: Ann Perkins

The people who work at the gym don't usually work out at the gym or at all, let them do their homework and watch Netflix in peace.

10. Admissions: Chris Traeger

They might be covered in glue and paper cuts from all the letters and information they send to new students. At some point they need to recharge so as to maintain their extreme excitement about new students.

When it comes to choosing a work study position, it can often seem like picking your poison. Hopefully these comparisons will make your decision easier.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
