If you’re like me, you also can’t get anything done when you study at home.

Luckily, I have recognized my inability to be productive...

It sounds incredibly cheesy, but the beauty on this campus never ceases to amaze me, even after three years here. When the weather is nice, I love to spend my days studying and hanging out with friends, soaking up as much sun as possible. I wasn’t always like that though. During my freshman year, ...

Coming to a new school is scary, especially one with 40,000+ students. If you’re from a small town or a place with not a lot of diversity, it can be very intense at first — it sure was for me. One way to make it less overwhelming is to find a group of friends to stick with. It may take some time to ...

College is hard. I get it. You want to have fun and get good grades. I have compiled a list of easy, fun classes for you that I enjoyed, so you don’t have to stress! Some of these classes count toward two gen-eds; some only count for one. I recommend taking classes that double dip. It will save you so...

As a broke college student with almost no time to spare, I often find myself gravitating toward cheap but delicious eats. Throughout my freshman and sophomore years, there are four local, lesser-known restaurants I've discovered that satisfied my cravings when dorm food or leftovers weren’t enough. ...

The University, peacefully situated among miles and miles of cornfields, has a unique personality many people fall in love with as soon as they move onto campus. I know I definitely did. However, many students walk around campus throughout their four years here not knowing the stories that lie within...

Coming into college, one might not know what to expect in terms of your classes. You’ve probably been told for the majority of your high school career that “this work won’t cut it in college” or that “when you get to college, it’ll be way harder,” in an attempt to scare you into putting...

Coming in to Champaign-Urbana as a freshman can be intimidating. Flyers, free bags and countless other things are thrown into your arms every time you step outside.
