Danielle Gonzalez is a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore majoring in Journalism and Media Studies with a double minor in Spanish and DCIM. Her organizational skills will blow your socks off, which she will then fold and organize by color and material. When she’s not at her desk, she can be found curled up on the couch with her pet beagle, Paco, as she eats Reese's Cups and watches the same season of New Girl on Netflix. Everything she owns is purple — like everything. Her activities include pretending to be productive by using her laptop by her pool when she’s actually just tanning, quoting Liz Lemon from 30 Rock whenever possible and convincing people that she is, in fact, 100 percent Latina. You can probably spot her any day of the week slamming her high-heeled booties on the brakes of her Toyota Highlander while trying not to hit pedestrians on College Avenue. Seriously— watch out.

5 things you experience during your summer internship

After weeks of pumping out last minute cover letters and filling out tedious applications, nothing felt better than finally hearing back from, and accepting, that coveted summer internship. You were stoked, gushing to dear old mom and dad who then made it their mission to tell everyone they’ve ever met how proud they were of you. School got out and you might have had the luxury of a week off in between to enjoy yourself. But then it hits you, your first day is tomorrow, you have no idea how to navigate the subway and you have no idea what "business casual" means. Chances are this is how your summer internship went.

Fashion photographer finds inspiration in art, environment

When she’s not behind the lens, Annie Pollock can be found nestled in Café Bene sipping on a “Very Berry Frappuccino” contemplating her next photo shoot. Pollock, a Mason Gross School of the Arts senior majoring in Fine Arts with a concentration in photography and a minor in art history, is an avid photographer with a passion for fashion and beauty, with a strong belief that fine art can influence fashion and vice versa. She received her first camera, a digital point and shoot, as a gift from her father for her 13th birthday.

Students at Rutgers Dance Marathon donate hair, undergo amazing transformation

Whether it's straight, curly or frizzy, Dance Marathon wouldn't be the same without the hair donated from the luscious locks of giving Rutgers students. Two students in particular underwent amazing hair transformations at the Louis Brown Athletic Center.     Lahar Parikh, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore and a previous hair donor, decided to style her chopped of locks with long layers that beautifully frame her face. "I volunteer at the children's hospital so I see how important it is to give and be selfless... a small gesture just like donating your hair encourages them to be comfortable in their own skin." Clayton Twidle, a School of Arts and Sciences senior, was a little unsure about what to do with his newly shortened hair, so he left it in the hands of the professional stylist who gave him a cool, slicked back look.  "Somebody needs it more than I do." Don't they look great?

Poet finds community for creative expression, perspectives

In light of Snowpocalypse 2015, Michael Anderson spent the past two days holed up in his apartment watching movies. He decided to watch the new blockbuster movie “Into the Woods,” and has one thing to say about it. “It sucked,” the School of Arts and Sciences sophomore said. “The plot sucked, the music sucked and all the melodies sucked.”
