8 Ways Bridget Jones Is Like A College Student

When most of us were still in elementary school, a little film called “Bridget Jones’s Diary” stole the hearts of moviegoers everywhere. The film tells the story of a 30-something British gal named Bridget (played by pre-wax figure Renée Kathleen Zellweger) who lives her life like it’s perpetually the weekend of her 21st birthday.

The Pros and Cons of a Low-Cost Trip

Have you ever wanted to do a low-cost trip? This alternative has become more and more known and was adopted by people from all over the world, once you have the opportunity to know more places in the same country spending less. But many times, you don’t know what to expect from such an experience, which can be very pleasant and, at the same time, there are some issues. So, before deciding whether you want to venture out, take a look at these points

Nabra Hassanen is Not Being Protected: Why I'm Upset Her Death Isn't Being Investigated as a Hate Crime

The opinions expressed in this article are the author's own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus. After I initially learned of the murder of Nabra Hassanen via social media, I took it upon myself to search through the few articles and news reports about the event. A 17-year-old Muslim girl died on Sunday, June 18 of blunt force trauma to the upper body by a metal baseball bat three hours away from my home and, as a fellow woman of color, I wanted to know why. Watching a recording of thei

On Her Grind Series, Part I

College teaches you how to balance school work, a social life, job(s), organizations, and passions. Sometimes, this means late nights and early mornings. The ‘On Her Grind’ Series looks to highlight women on ODU’s campus who work hard balancing these things and make it look flawless! Sasha Marshall (pictured right) is a senior double majoring in Biochemistry and Criminal Justice. She is the Vice-President of F.I.R.S.T Ladies, Treasurer of D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D, 3rd Vice-President and STEM committee c

Floridian in the Fort

Growing up in Tampa, Florida, it never crossed my mind that I would spend my college years in Texas.  I had actually never even been to Texas until I was a junior in high school. I mean, I live where you vacation! Why would I ever want to leave that? But, when I stepped on the campus of TCU for the first time, I knew it was for me. The sense of community and adventure is what drew me to this great school.  Tampa and Fort Worth do have many similarities, but the differences are just as great. T

The Back to School Plague

The time has come where only a few weeks of school have passed, but every time the alarm goes off, your head starts to pound with it. You pretty much feel like you’re dying. The back to school plague is something that almost all college students are familiar with.  Waiting in line at the health center, living off of Emergen-C and Advil, and taking a Nyquill before bed are all too familiar. But, for any college student, getting sick for the first time without having someone to care for you migh

Alcoholism and Acceptability

Many students are currently finishing off assignments and preparing for exams. The last few weeks have been filled with late nights and library bins filled with stacks of empty coffee cups. After all the St. Patricks Day celebrations, all that coffee was swapped with another substance for many of these students, one that is very much associated with being Irish.

Domestic Abuse Awareness Month

Sometimes the monsters aren't the ones under our bed, they’re the ones in it. They’re sometimes tall enough that we must stretch on our tippy toes to kiss them or they have the most perfect smiles and brown eyes that remind you of lyrics and poetry. They like cappuccinos and puppies; too. And our parents probably love them. They bought your mother chrysanthemums and watch the soccer with your father.

People on Twitter Just Went Off About How Annoying Crop Tops Are & It's So Cathartic

As the sun begins to shine and our campuses warm up, the designs available in stores tend to get a little… shorter. And this year, that adjective doesn’t just apply to the lower half of our outfits. The powers that be have decided that the look of this summer is Pooh Bear-chic. You can’t walk into a Forever 21 or H&M without being surrounded by half-size shirts and, frankly, Twitter isn’t having it — the whole world around.

The Jean Talk

You don’t know me, the poltergeist of the new pair of jeans that lay before you. Yes, they have a tiny hole the size of my unnaturally small pinky in the seam of the right knee. To you, they’re the perfect, soft material, more than ready to be distressed so you can feel like a badass when you wear them with whichever pair of shoes make you feel powerful. My personal shoe of choice would be black combat boots, but a little heel or a sneaker would do just as well. You’re probably planning a whole

Yesterday, Janelle Monáe dropped a female-directed, girl gang-centric music video for her feminist bop, “Pynk” – and this video is full of looks. From Janelle’s hot pink eyeliner to her structured dress with pink fur sleeves, the major style details are a serious statement.  She also wore vagina pants in the video, in case you didn't get the message about ~celebrating women~.

The Fall of Summer

It’s the beginning of October, which means summer has officially come to an end. The tan lines are fading, the summer weather is changing, and my mood is saddening. Summer is one of the best seasons of the year for multiple reasons, one of them being that you no longer have to go to school every day. As much as I love going to school to see my friends, late movie nights and sleeping in are my favorite things. Swim parties and snow cones are always exciting, but something that sucks about summer,

Wear to Be Worn

I believe in worn tennis shoes. The smelly, muddy, slouchy shoes are my instant heaven. You see, tennis shoes are not just regular shoes—they’re cool, versatile shoes. They can be worn with a t-shirt or with a sweater. They can be worn in the summer or the winter. They can be a variety of colors or just simply plain. But I believe in worn tennis shoes. Tennis shoes that have a flush bottom from wear and tear. Tennis shoes that have old shoe laces which constantly unlace. I believe in the tennis

The Struggles of Having a Wicked Long Name

Having a long name is both a blessing and a curse. It's unique but can be quite bothersome. As a kid, I would have a hard time trying to get others to use my full name because people would not bother to learn its pronunciation. Often times, I fluctuated between my full name and multiple nicknames. Although I hated having a difficult name growing up, I now realize that other people share mutual struggles.

From Junk to Healthy: The Story of a Constant Snacker

Since this week is all about self-love, let’s start with the basics: snacks, cravings, and loving your body. I am guilty of being a constant snacker — I literally snack more times a day than I actually eat a full, balanced meal. As a college student, healthy snack alternatives can add up, and oftentimes it feels like it’s not worth breaking the bank for.
