I was probably in fifth grade when skinny jeans became trendy, and I remember specifically asking my mother to find a pair for me. I wasn’t old enough to really shop on my own yet, and she came home with “slim leg” pants from The Children’s Place that just weren’t going to cut it for me.
No dish is more American than a combination of a burger and fries. With the prominence of Instagram “food porn,” it seems like every restaurateur is looking to elevate the nation’s classic with gourmet touches. Veganism and clean eating are also becoming mainstream lifestyle choices, and vegan spots like by CHLOE. and Veganized that whip up decadent dishes are proving that food can be enjoyable whether you eat meat or not.
If you’re a social media-savvy college student, chances are you follow a “food porn” Instagram account that publishes mouth-watering content featuring hot shots of the best local cuisine.
Last night, millions of people huddled around their television sets to watch dozens of 5-foot-10-inch models gracefully stride down a runway in oversized angel wings and exquisite lingerie.

New Jerseyans and Rutgers students better get ready to rage, because Travis Scott is bringing his Astroworld Tour to Newark’s Prudential Center this Saturday.
The saying usually goes, “out with the old, in with the new,” but today’s trending fashion suggests otherwise. Supermodels and famous actresses are regularly pictured in consignment clothing and archived designer collections. Urban Outfitters and Reformation have launched their own curated vintage lines. The most recent Calvin Klein campaign captures the Kardashian sisters in white boxer briefs and Canadian tuxedos, proving the high-waisted, tapered fit isn’t exclusive to the 90s. And they’re called mom jeans for a reason: “I never would have imagined my Calvin Klein jeans or Levi’s 512s would ever be in style for generations to come,” Carol Gilmore said, a trim manager for millennial-marketed Express. “If I knew my daughters would be buying dupes from Topshop, or if they were re-selling for $200 and being labeled as ‘vintage,’ I would have reconsidered throwing them out.”
Whether we’re drowning in student loans, failing a class or lacking a post-graduation plan, too many of us have experienced crippling anxiety throughout our college careers. This pressure is only intensified by social media, where we’re practically flooded with good news from our peers. In fact, studies show that millennials are the most anxious and stressed-out generation. Anxiety is still something we like to avoid discussing, and if we do, it’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t understand. Rutgers alumnus Zack Morrison’s short film “Everything’s Fine: A Panic Attack in D Major” aims to articulate the otherwise unexplainable anxiety attack through a universal language: music. Recently accepted into the St. Louis International Film Festival — an Academy Award-qualifying event — the relatable and musically brilliant short is slowly making its way into Oscar territory.
One of the most memorable scenes in Tina Fey’s 2004 “Mean Girls” hilariously depicts the ways in which so many of us romanticize simple interactions with our crushes. Cady Heron, played by Lindsay Lohan, interprets her high school football star crush Aaron Samuels asking her for the date as his way of flirting. “It’s October third,” Cady replied with dreamy eyes and a toothy smile. The relationship was clearly going places.
Members of traditional fraternities are often portrayed and pride themselves as wholesome, constructive young adults who actively contribute to society. They prioritize philanthropy, maintain exceptional GPAs and work hard to prove themselves as decent, well-rounded men in order to gain acceptance into a fraternity in the first place. Recently, though, fraternities have been the face of controversy more often than exemplars of brotherly good, for offenses that are deeply rooted in a heritage that many believe is fueled by toxic masculinity and rape culture.
One of the classic cliches people hear during their college careers is that college is an opportunity for sexual exploration. And it’s true: many of us will have had sex at some point during our four-years. Sex education is rarely offered on college campuses, and by freshman year, you’ve already had those awkward birds-and-the-bees, safe sex conversations with your parents and educators. Pleasure-wise, our first sexual encounters often define our relationship with and beliefs about sex well into our adulthood. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
For the naturally organized and motivated student, starting the semester on the right track merely entails aesthetically-pleasing stationary and intricate planners that are color-coded with meticulous detail. For the rest of us, pretty pens and 5-subject notebooks are not enough to help us keep it all together. When social media is not distracting us from our studies, hand-held technology offers ample resources that can aid in our academic lives, some of which many students have no idea exist. Whether you need guidance in writing papers or managing your finances, here is a guide to apps and websites that can help you survive this semester.
As the fashion capital and financial hub of Italy, Milan is a city that's naturally booming with art, entertainment and culture centers. Tourists typically book tickets months in advance to witness da Vinci’s "The Last Supper" and form lines down the block to enter the masterpiece that is il Duomo di Milano, but upon arriving in Milan, I craved a more non-traditional cultural experience. Luckily, on my last day in the city, I stumbled upon the Museo delle Culture (MUDEC), an exhibition space that was conveniently showing some of the most famous works of one of my favorite artists, Frida Kahlo.

After reading this, you might be feeling inspired to be spontaneous, so don’t be afraid to do some research on these semi-close and underrated travel destinations.
Their white colonial houses sit on College Avenue like landmarks, and you most likely had your first college party experience in the basement of one of them. You’ve seen them pie each other in the face in front of Brower Commons in the name of charity, witnessed “pledges” run around shirtless in winter temperatures and by senior year, you’ll practically know the entirety of the Greek alphabet solely based on rush T-shirts they wear around campus. With all this considered, it’s hard to imagine a big public university like Rutgers without greek life.
Lunchtime rolls around, and you already had a bacon egg and cheese for breakfast. Your body literally needs something healthy, but it’s 45 degrees out and raining, so you’d much rather have warm, filling comfort food over an underwhelming and overpriced salad.

It’s that awkward time of the year when Halloween is over but Thanksgiving break still feels light years away. While midterms might be over for now, it’s still the middle of the semester, and school responsibilities are hitting at high speeds.

Because it’s not too hot and not too cold outside, fall is the perfect time to host a party.
