Everyone knows that when it comes to new phones, it’s a big deal to witness who is going to cop the very first ones created. Take the Apple iPhone 4 for instance, I wouldn’t be surprised if in the next few weeks or months, there is a problem with the phone, that’s the way it always goes. Let’s cut to the chase for my T-Mobile customers…

Back to School Special

Summer is slowly coming to an end and I think I speak for all of us when I say we are getting ready to readjust to the demands of a collegiate setting. Upperclassmen have to deal with the newbies coming to prove themselves. Freshmen can be concerned with the adjustment to an awesomely scary new environment.  Everyone in between can just worry about what their drink of choice will be for the upcoming semester.  In the meantime…here’s a picture for you all to enjoy!

This is a little something special for the Nike (Female) Lovers out there. Without a doubt, Nike Blazers are the new wave in fashion. First there were colors that look good with with each other and then came the patchwork with stitches. Here is a pair of women’s blazers that is a dream. A black foundation, a satin and faux leather smooth finish with a kaleidoscope type of effect. These high tops are definitely going to make a statement. If you take a close look at them, they pay homage to abstract art while keeping up to the times and styles of generation “up to date”. These babies are only available at Dr. Jays and Sneakerhead website. Make sure to cop a pair of these before they run out.

As college students, we are preoccupied with classes, work, social life and have minimal room for rest. With all the fees that we are paying for college, there is one in particular we must bring to light and that is the athletic fee. We pay the money for it but yet we do not utilize the gym as we properly should.Unless you are all about being healthy or an athlete in  school for that matter, the gym is the last thing on our minds.Instead what do we do? We attempt to take the easy way out by resorting to diet pills. The real question at hand is: how effective are they?

It doesn’t matter what class level you are in college, one thing that brings a lot of us together for a few hours to have a hell of a good time is a party. It can be a club party, house party or even a dorm party. the best thing about parties is that you can start throwing down on Thursday and depending on when you have classes, you don’t have to end until Sunday night. We all know that depending on what town you are in, many bars are not open until 4AM. There are instances in which clubs are open until 2AM, lucky if we even get until 3:30AM the latest. So the party is over, whether is was great or a total flop, the night is still young and you are not tired.  What are you to do? Just keep on looking for the action and we will be sure to guide you.

College Concern: Funding My Education

By: Ricza Lopez (Buffalo State College)

Every year more and more students are attending college thanks to scholarships, grants and loans. Grants and scholarships are indeed a great help but most of the time do not pay a good chunk of the college bill. Loans are what help pay a majority of the bill which does not initially concern students, but does become a stressor after they have completed their studies. Unfortunately, with state budgets being cut in colleges and universities, it is making it that much harder for students to even attend or continue their pursuit of a degree. Many students are in the dark and not even aware of the reasons for the rising costs of education. For one, tuition is always increasing by a few hundred dollars each semester. Though tuition is sometimes cheap if a student is attending college in-state, there are other college fees such as meal plans and room and board charges that make bills at an all time high.

Ladies, ladies and ladies. Do you remember back in the day, how you used to invite your girlfriends over to your house and you would sit on the couch to just gossip and laugh? Well let’s fast forward and take a trip to the opposite side because surprisingly enough, guys do the same thing, just in their own different and “manly” way. It’s funny that we have our opinions of guys and how they carry themselves when it comes to their fellow macho men. They put on known such a front and act like they are all open with the things that they do, little do you know what it’s really like to be around guys when their guards are down.

Why College Radio Rocks

It’s a typical boring afternoon with nothing to do. Your friends are either sleeping from last night’s party, working or just bumming around. You do something that you haven’t done in a long time and turn the dial on your old school radio to your favorite radio station. We as college students know that with radio stations within the area and watching programs such as MTVU that is geared towards “college music” (whatever that means) we don’t get what we want. We have to put up with hearing the same old thing on a regular basis, especially Top 40. You may have not thought about it before but college radio is something that shouldn’t be slept on. Why, you may ask? Because it gives students a voice that is out of the norm and you will not hear your typical tracks that everyone knows.

When we first go away to college, there are some of us who go and buy what we need according to the list the school gave us. There are also some of us who feel the need to bring their whole room from back home to this little cubicle that we unfortunately call a dorm. We can all understand that we want to feel like our dorm is our home away from home and add a personal touch. Let’s face it, not only does it cost lots of money, but in most cases, you share the space with another person. Now, over the years, you accumulate so much stuff, you don’t even know what to do. Here are some tips that you may want to think about before you get stuck in that  predicament.
