Being in a serious committed relationship during college doesn’t seem fun or exciting, I know. Especially when popular wisdom dictates that college is a time to have fun and let loose before you have to start looking for the more major things in life, like a job and a wife. But let’s be realistic. We aren’t ge...

We all get lonely. There’s no shame in that. Sometimes you get blue and you can’t explain it or figure out why you are feeling like you do. Sometimes you get blue and you are simply lost in that emotion. It comes from left field and sucker punches you right in the gut, leaving you unable to go ...

Novembeard is coming. Please prepare your faces. Yes, it's almost that time of year again. The month where every able-faced fella feels compelled to carry on the sacred tradition of abandoning razor and shaving cream for an entire month. Things may get hairy, things may get furry, things may start...

Whether you are kicking a roommate out or trying to find new ones, finding a good roommate can very much be like dating someone.

It’s no secret that lectures can be boring or tedious for students. Even I’ll admit to occasionally zoning out when professors are talking. However, I realize that I’m in class to learn, so I make a concerted effort to pay attention as much as possible. That is why I shake my head wh...

The B-Line is a fantastic asset to Butte County and especially to people who want to get to campus. The drivers are nice, the buses are usually on time and the people who ride the buses are generally polite or friendly. They’re so nice, in fact, that I really start to miss them when I’m wal...

To quote the cinematic extension of my existence that is “Mean Girls,” “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” For the rest of the world, Halloween may stir thoughts of free candy, pumpkin spice lattes and the ...

Texting and driving has managed to surpass drinking and driving as the No. 1 cause of accidents among college students. So why do we keep doing it? Every so often, a national problem becomes so frequent that public service announcements are released to warn the public against such dangers. About 30 years...

My former landlord should be ashamed of himself. Last year, I lived off Fourth Avenue with two of my friends. We rented a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment through a rental company in Chico. I was excited because I was living off campus for the first time since I came to Chico State. We put down $...

I am suffering from social media exhaustion. It seems I can’t so much as attend an event without the hand of social media nudging me to make a status update, tweet or photo upload to mark the occasion. All it takes is attending a concert to see the cloud of cellular devices hovering above the cro...

For the longest time I never really saw the need for an associate degree. I know it’s good for students who have no intention to continue past community college, but I have never been that student. I spent three years in community college with the intention of transferring. When a counselor suggested I...
