The Media Maven: My Take On ‘What Would Ryan Lochte Do?’

Nowadays, just about every “has-been” or D-List celebrity has their own reality TV show. Joining this circle is 28-year-old Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte on his new show “What would Ryan Lochte Do?” on E!

I find this unusual since Lochte is at the height of his career. Why would he need/have time for a reality show? He isn’t retired yet -- not even close since he is already training for the 2016 games in Rio.

Easy Ways to Get in Shape as a College Student

College is a time of growth, both mentally and physically. Your attitudes, morals, maturity and even your body undergo change.

However, a change in your body does not necessarily mean you have fallen into the "Freshman 15" trap. Instead, your body naturally grows and develops into a young adult, hips included. During this change, your body will appreciate you if you take the time to exercise daily and eat healthy.

U Chic Approved: The Greek Ink Press

If you are as obsessed as I am about your sorority, you know how hard it can be to find cute personalized T-shirts if you are the only one ordering them. At last count, I had almost 30 letter shirts and screen printed T-shirts that proudly proclaim my sorority affiliation.

The Media Maven: The Mean Delta Gamma Email

When I opened up a sorority email at my school, there was no telling what it was going to be about. There were so many girls, which equaled to so many emails per day. Sometimes, they were to remind us what an awesome chapter we were, and other times, it was to reprimand us for wearing letters when we were clearly ordered to wear our badges on Wednesdays.

However, I doubt any chapter has experienced the wrath that now infamous Rebecca Martinson has inflicted upon her sisters.

The Party Is Over: Focusing on Final Exams

It’s that time of year again when the stress of finals can seem overwhelming. Of course, studying for finals when the weather is nice and sunny out can be a challenge. The excitement of summer and catching up with friends before everyone leaves on break can definitely be a distraction. So why not be proactive and combine both?
