Here are some fun, spring weather date ideas to plan for when the semester comes to an end and you can get out and enjoy this beautiful spring!

The Media Maven: The Mean Delta Gamma Email

When I opened up a sorority email at my school, there was no telling what it was going to be about. There were so many girls, which equaled to so many emails per day. Sometimes, they were to remind us what an awesome chapter we were, and other times, it was to reprimand us for wearing letters when we were clearly ordered to wear our badges on Wednesdays.

However, I doubt any chapter has experienced the wrath that now infamous Rebecca Martinson has inflicted upon her sisters.

The Party Is Over: Focusing on Final Exams

It’s that time of year again when the stress of finals can seem overwhelming. Of course, studying for finals when the weather is nice and sunny out can be a challenge. The excitement of summer and catching up with friends before everyone leaves on break can definitely be a distraction. So why not be proactive and combine both?

Spring Has Sprung: Best Recipes for a Picnic

The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and we are all donning our newest and cutest rain boots. Spring has certainly sprung!

Getting Involved with Service Organizations on Campus

As I'm sure you've heard many times before, getting involved on your campus is extremely important.

Involvement not only helps you find experience that you can put on a resume but can also become a great way to make friends.

But what if, on top of all that, you're also working for a greater cause? Many colleges offer service organizations that allow you to do some good and get that experience you need.

The Media Maven: Finding a Husband in College

When I was in college, I would often heard girls jokingly say, “I’m giving up on my major and am just going to get my MRS degree.”

Hardly any of them meant what they said, but I’m sure there are quite a few girls out there that would jump at the chance to be whisked off their feet by a rich, smart, handsome man and be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

However, especially in this age of "girl power," many of us strong-willed ladies intend to finish college with a degree in something we are passionate about and then, in turn, obtain a full-time job doing something we love with that degree we all worked so hard for.

The 411 on Choosing a College Major

Choosing a major in college is one of the most important decisions any student makes.

It's a declaration of what you will be planning to do with your career, and it's a decision that should take thoughtful consideration and time.

When it comes to choosing your major, I encourage you to delve into the future.

Advantages to Living the College Life in a Big City

While there are many advantages of attending college in a small town, there are just as many (if not more!) perks of studying and living in a major city.

Having lived in Washington, D.C., for close to two years, I have been able to experience all of the exciting benefits that come with city life. Here are just a few of the perks I’ve enjoyed!

Spring Has Sprung: Ways to Get Outside!

Bright oranges, vibrant pinks, glowing yellows ... the colors of spring are popping up everywhere. The sun stays out longer and is starting to break the long winter chill we are all tired of.

Wishing you could find some more time to soak up the sun? Here are some ideas to get you out there while staying productive.

Incorporating Religion Into Your College Experience

From my experience as a college student, certain barriers can create conflict in keeping religion as a part of the college equation. These barriers include: negative influences from peers, the “I don’t have time for that, I’m too busy” excuse and “Thirsty Thursdays.”

The role of religion in the lives of college students on some campuses has become a thing of the past. However, I’m here to tell you that it is possible to make room for your religion. Here are the different ways I incorporated religion into my college experience.
