“No Glove, No Love” or “Wrap it Up.” Whatever you want to call it, just make sure you’re taking the steps to be sexually responsible.
At the time of writing this, I was on my fourth day without coffee. It’s been a long half a week. I can’t remember the first day, because I spent the entire day engulfed in a headache. My second day was just as bad. But the past couple of days have certainly been better, and I think I can finish this week without succumbing to my caffeine craving.
Students who find themselves stuck on campus on a Friday have few options. They can risk throwing a party (almost certain to get busted by 11 p.m.), order yet another round of cookies from the Secret Cookie Service, or do what too many of us wind up doing week after week — study.

Plans to open a Teach for America branch in San Diego open discussion on the program’s approach, what it could provide to students and the opportunities it presents UCSD graduates.

There’s an elephant in nearly every dorm room. It’s not your suitemate’s newfound sexual liberation. It’s not the few pounds you gained from too many late night trips to Goody’s.
