How to Eat Healthier When You're Drunk

Kayla Matthews | February 10, 2016 | College
It's a familiar scenario -- you and your friends just did a few rounds of shots at the bar, and now you're craving nachos or cheese fries at 2 a.m. Before you walk over to the all-night diner to snag your favorite greasy dish, think it through.

This Is What Insomnia Feels Like

Sarah Malley | February 11, 2016 | Healthy Living
Most nights I wake up some time between 2:00 and 4:00 and stay up for a few excruciating hours, the kind where you can feel every minute pass. It's been this way for almost two years.

25 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago

Darius Foroux | February 10, 2016 | Business
One thing that I like better than learning from my mistakes is to learn from other people's mistakes. We might learn things quickly, but we often forget things at the same rate -- and sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the things we've learned.

Will Cosby and Lieb Be the Exceptions or the Turning Point?

Michele Beaulieux | February 9, 2016 | Crime
The reason some people are above the law is because of advice like Nussbaum's. She doubts people will stand up to power and tells survivors that seeking justice is futile. Nussbaum is wrong. Some people will stand up -- sometimes at great personal cost -- and survivors can find justice.

On Student Activism

Mark Golub | February 9, 2016 | College
Our institutions are designed to preserve white privilege, but also to make the ongoing causes of racial inequality seem mysterious. We remain ignorant by design, invested in a mythology of white innocence.

To Anyone Who Thinks They're Falling Behind In Life

Jamie Varon | February 9, 2016 | Women
You don't need more motivation. You don't need to be inspired to action. You don't need to read any more lists and posts about how you're not doing enough. There's a magic beyond us that works in ways we can't understand.

Adam Weinberg | February 10, 2016 | College
The democratic way of life is government "of the people, by the people and for the people." How do our colleges and universities contribute to this goal? At the core, we need colleges to prepare students to work effectively with others--across...

Who Matters in America? A Call for Political Correctness

Steve Nelson | February 8, 2016 | College
The rise of so-called "political correctness" is not the infantilizing of students. It is the long overdue voice given to the real experiences of all students.

A Feminist's Guide to Critiquing Hillary Clinton

Kelly Wilz | February 11, 2016 | Politics
Call out sexism and misogyny -- especially if it's coming from someone who claims to be progressive. However, I worry the label is being thrown around loosely and being applied to many well-meaning, non-sexist male critics of Clinton.

The University of Pennsylvania Has An Empty Bed Epidemic

Josh Kahn | February 8, 2016 | College

Gary A. Olson | February 8, 2016 | College
Many student-athletes pursue their goal of playing an NCAA sport in college. While most people who follow college sports are familiar with Division I and its star athletics programs -- Alabama, Kentucky, Penn State -- few can articulate what the organization's three divisions stand for.

3 Ways to Get Better Sleep in College

Dylan Brodsky | February 8, 2016 | Healthy Living
Sleep is a necessity (and a luxury) for all of us, especially while in college. There's nothing wrong with needing reminders here and there to keep you on the right track, so figure out what works best for you and keep up with it. If nothing else, get your friends in on the movement with us and help others refuse the snooze.

Suffolk University and the Collapse of Shared Governance

Dr. Brian C. Mitchell | February 8, 2016 | College
In an ugly soap opera still unfolding, Suffolk University's efforts to govern itself responsibly imploded over the past couple of weeks in an acid cloud of public "he said/she said." As the Suffolk debacle deepened, the finger pointing became a matter of public record.

Garrett Mintz | February 5, 2016 | Business
As far as I was concerned, students that graduated from Ivy League schools were leaps and bounds more prepared for their careers than students who graduated from second-tier schools. But is that really true?

Vince Bertram | February 5, 2016 | College
With acceptance letters in hand, you are now in control, and the responsibility rests with the university to explain why you should choose it. This mindset can also be helpful for younger students who are looking ahead to their own college applications.
