Four years ago, I’d just moved into the dorms at Hillside. Besides sharing a bathroom with twenty other girls and not being able to listen to bands I liked without my roommate telling me how poor my taste in music was, there was something glorious that came with dorming: an 18-meal plan.

These students are given eight tickets each. The school claims that to be the limit, but due to the demand, the school opens a free ticket “sale” for students the week before graduation—which is great. T...

By now, many students have probably heard about the transatlantic calamity foodies are facing: “avocado hand.” I heard it first via Remezcla, a media brand by and for young Latin Americans. Their co...
