I have been to my share of house parties, not to mention I am in a sorority, so I have hosted my share of parties as well. There is a fine line between common sense and just making an ass out of yourself. For example, if no one in the house is smoking a cigarette and you clearly see everyone is out on the porch….GO OUT ON THE PORCH! When the owner of the house asks you not to smoke…do not flip out like a crazy drunk and start screaming, you’re only embarrassing yourself.

Love is in the air! Or is it sex? Summertime is a time for fun, games and even flings. When it come to flings however, just make sure that you know if you classify someone as a fling, it is something temporary to fill a short term goal. Remember the perfect analogy for flings or a Summer Buddy is a collectible or one of those limited edition pieces that you oh so love because they are around for a limited time only – hurry before they run out fast! Now there are some dos and don’ts when it comes to these flings because like Steve Harvey states “they are just playthings” they are something you can’t take serious especially if they give it up way too quick. Now on to the next one and , let’s get at this list shall we?

No matter what the day, time or occassion, sex is a topic that really cannot be avoided. It’s on TV, on the radio, in magazines, your friends and peers speak of it.

It is a given that University Police are present to patrol, serve and protect our campus- or so we think. It’s crazy that for the last few years, the University Police Department at Buffalo State College isn’t really doing what they are being paid to do. With sky rocketing costs just to have them “work” per hour, many student organizations are in jeopardy of compromising their big-name annual events.

There are many ways to spend time on campus.  With over 60 organizations at Buff State ranging from social to media, there is something out there for everyone. It seems that this year, the underclassmen aren’t too enthused about coming out of their dorms and going to explore.

I have some tips that may be able to help you out for next year. For one, find out what you like and where your niche is at. The next thing you can do is talk to your professors, staff and personnel to see what you might do to get involved. Bengal Pause is defnintely something you should not miss on Thursdays (from 12:15 to 1:40) because that’s when everyone comes out and set tables to give you-the student a chance to learn more about the organization. Bengal Pause is also a great way to find out about upcoming events and attend organizations General Interest meetings in the Student Union.

On Saturday April 24th, the Caribbean Students Organization at Buffalo State College celebrated their annual Caribash. For those of you who do not know what Caribash is, it an annual event in which an artist from the Caribbean comes to perform. The event this year  Caribash was held in the sports arena on campus. The early warms were brought on by Brooklyn’s own Farenheight Crew consisting of the Soca Warrior DJ A-Hop, Dancehall/Reggae DJ’s Richie Rich, Geniuz and Goose. After they got the students pumped up, In4ahred Sounds hopped on the one’s and two’s to play conscious reggae and jump into R&B and Hip-Hop.
