Ace Your Interview

Step Brothers Interview

Our time in college is spent bettering ourselves, increasing our knowledge, and working towards finding a career. The last part, finding a career, can be incredibly stressful. It can become a juggling act with school, work, and filling out applications for your first real job with the clock ticking towards graduation. But once you have filled out those applications, what’s next? Hopefully you hear back from a company requesting an interview. An interview is your time to shine, show them what you are made of and all you have worked for.

Making a Turducken


Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and hopefully you all are as excited as I am! There is nothing better than going home for a week and being stuffed with delicious food. I’m sure we are all used to the classic turkey as a Thanksgiving meal, but what if I told you that there is something different you could try? Something outside the box that is not only creative, but also savory and delectable. It is a concoction made up of a chicken, duck, and turkey all wrapped together and filled with stuffing.

Happiness and Money

Scrooge McDuck

Before I begin, you should know that this blog and its examples are based off an amazing book called “Happy Money” by Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton. The basis of this book is that we should spend our money in ways that make us happier. It seems like a fairly simple concept, but most people don’t know how to use their money to its’ full potential. For example, most of us believe that having a larger, beautiful house would make us happier.

The Benefits of Greek Life

Letters today, Leaders tomorrow

Greek life is one of the most popular topics for debate on a college campus. Either way, everyone ultimately has their own personal reasons for going Greek themselves. But, what does Greek life do for you when those wonderful college years are over? My opinion may be slightly biased as I am in a fraternity, but I would go as far to say that going Greek could make you more successful after college. According to USA Today, since 1825, every U.S. president, except three, has been a member of a fraternity.

Nostalgia: Freshman Year

As another school year begins, I can only think about how fast the last three years have gone by. It felt like just yesterday that I was arriving for the first time on campus and moving into my dorm. I would give anything to be able to go back to that year. You see, freshman year was THE year. The only thing you needed to worry about was that the year would be over too soon. Freshman year is something that you will want to hold on to. By the time you are a senior, like myself, you will find yourself reminiscing on old stories and memories from that beloved first year.

Find the Right Job For You

With May approaching, our seniors are beefing up their resumes, exploring the Internet for job applications, and above all trying to find what their future holds for them. If you’re like myself, and graduating in May, all you have on your mind is where can I find a job that is suitable for me?

Taking the Syllabus Seriously

It’s “syllabus day,” arguably the best day of the semester. It’s the day you probably don’t have to take notes or listen to lectures. The day where your only responsibility is to collect your syllabus, and then stuff it somewhere into the black hole of papers we like to call a backpack. But, this wonderful first day of classes has the potential to either make or break your entire semester. How you choose to handle your syllabus ultimately determines your future stress levels and your final grades.
