With the fall semester officially over, the holiday season provides an excellent chance to unwind and catch up with friends and family. Alcohol definitely helps when it comes to those unexpected political debates that pop up at the dinner table, and the typical Shiner will just not do. If you need a reason to get into...

The semester is winding down and the break is finally approaching, but that usually means that a slew of deadlines and finals are just around the corner. That project you were supposed to be working on three weeks ago is now due in two days, or tomorrow, so it’s finally time to sit down and deal with it. These are a...

Holiday gifts don’t have to be pricey or amazing to be special. A lot of times, just taking the time to get together and exchange something can be enough. Plus, there’s a solidarity that exists among college students. We all understand that textbooks, food and classes are all expensive. This is not a good time to be...

Fall movies could arguably fall into a genre all of their own, with the red and orange scenery and warm melancholy of the changing season. Though Houston’s fall will never be quite as spectacular as autumn in New York, there are worst ways to spend a rainy afternoon than a fall-themed movie marathon to go with that...

This has been proven in recent months after the onslaught of multiple natural disasters worldwide and the...

Seasons in Houston are a controversial issue, and while Trader Joe’s has already started to stock their pumpkin-spice everything, temperatures are sitting comfortably around 90 degrees.
