Dr. Brian C. Mitchell | March 2, 2015 | College

Substance-Free Housing: Health, Safety, and Respect

Armaity Minwalla | March 2, 2015 | College
When I am walking alone at night, my hands clenched in fists in my pockets and head always looking over my shoulder, I cannot help but feel a great sense of relief when I step into the my dorm. Here, I know I am safe -- I know I am home.

Interview: The Vaselines at the Cedar Cultural Center

Sean Lyons | March 2, 2015 | College
The story of The Vaselines differs greatly from the classic example of a band's steady rise to fame. The band's superbly crafted songs embodied a carefree spirit, and appealed to listeners of pop rock as well as punk rock.

Banning Yik Yak from College Campuses Is Counterproductive

Larry Magid | March 1, 2015 | Technology
The best way to make sure that social media reflects positive values is for people to use the apps in positive ways, speak out against posts that are hateful and derogatory, report abuse when they see it and be supportive of those who have been abused.

Geoffrey R. Stone | February 28, 2015 | Politics
The recent decision of the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina to close the University of North Carolina Law School's Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity is a blatant and dangerous instance of political interference with academic freedom.

Intern Queen Campus Ambassadors | February 28, 2015 | College
Allowing for both personal and professional growth is right outside of your bubble. Make connections, immerse yourself in the culture, and find success. Once you step outside of your comfort zone, you'll grow more than you ever thought possible.

Catching a Catfish on Tinder

Jaime Zucker | February 27, 2015 | College
Brian and I chatted for about an hour last night. He told me that he was pursuing an MBA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but other than that, he didn't give me many details. I'll admit, he was charming, but I had some serious doubts about those photos. They were just too good.

'The Dress'

Joe Peyronnin | February 27, 2015 | Style
I thought nothing more about the disagreement as I left the kitchen to put the dogs out. But the next morning I was startled to see that "the dress" was dominating social media. What had started as a question on Tumblr was now a national obsession. How could some people see black and blue where I saw gold and white?

6 Months Into My Anorexia Recovery, I Finally Smashed My Scale

Proud2BMe | February 28, 2015 | Teen
I thought of my scale as a security blanket -- as long as I had it, I felt like I had some sort of control. In reality, the scale controlled me. It wasn't a security blanket; it was a ball and chain.

Betty Aldworth | February 27, 2015 | College
It's past time to acknowledge the plain fact that students use drugs. Let's make sure they have the education and protections they need to do so safely.

It Is Time to Eliminate "Otherness"

Guneet Kaur Chawla | February 27, 2015 | Impact
In a world in which violence has become so normalized, it can be easy to disregard a campus alert message informing students of a shooting in an off-campus neighborhood that killed three individuals.

The Tracks of Men's Tears

Michael Kimmel | February 27, 2015 | Women
Modern masculinity is measured not by a stoicism that makes us resemble an inanimate object (a rock, a pillar) but by a capacity for feeling, a capacity to be moved -- even moved to tears. It may once have been true that, as the Cure sang, "Boys don't cry." But not anymore. Today, real men cry.

Tummy Pride

Proud2BMe | February 27, 2015 | Women
Your stomach's feats should be celebrated, not shamed. And therefore, the stomach should be displayed with, yes, I'll say it, pride. Your umbilical cord connected you, your tummy, and your mother. Without that belly, you wouldn't be here.

Madeline Diamond | March 1, 2015 | College
While elementary school taught me the importance of saying sorry for my mistakes, my experiences in college have shown me how to live life unapologetically.

What the Keystone Pipeline Means to Millennials

Jacob Peters | February 26, 2015 | Politics
Obama speaking our language doesn't necessarily mean iMessages full of emojis, though his recent experiment with a "selfie-stick" suggests that it may not be far behind; instead we are seeing an Executive that is acting on our issues.
