    How to Tackle FL/GA

    An oldie but a goodie. Here’s a gem on FL/GA survival by our very own, Morgan Jenkins, originally published Oct. 31, 2013. #throwback I love a good cocktail party. Especially when that cocktail party hosts approximately 200,000 redneck, bourbon-guzzling guests, each of whom have relatively loose morals and firm grasps on the concept of BYOB. On Saturday students, fans, and oddballs alike ...

    Halloween Flick Picks Part 2

    With Halloween fast approaching, take a break from scrambling to piece together the perfect costume to make you the coolest kid at the function and sit back and relax. They say Halloween is the one time of the year where the dead rise and walk among us, so I wouldn’t suggest going out. Stay inside and watch a scary movie instead. Here ...

    Halloween Flick Picks Part 1

    Every Halloween, people make lists to showcase their favorite frightening flicks, and I am no different. Because horror is one of the most polarizing film genres out there, everyone has a different opinion (Just ask “Mike A,” an opinionated commenter on “10 Terrifying Films You’ve Never Seen”). All tastes, despite their venom, are welcomed in the horror genre. So, kudos to Mike ...

    Get Your Hands Off My Ovaries

    “Babies.” A word that strikes fear in the hearts of college kids. We’ve all successfully escaped teenage pregnancy statistics with only a few scares along the way.

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken the task ...

    Tara’s Informal Guide to Gainesville Theater: “Sweeney Todd”

    If you’re anything like me, a mutual love for theater and Johnny Depp made you fall in love with the movie version of “Sweeney Todd” in your early teens. Since then, I have wanted to see a live production and this semester I finally had my chance. Nestled between the Reitz and a heap of construction, you can be a part of ...

    It’s tough being a member of Generation Y. Selfish, materialistic and lazy are all words that seem to come to mind when people think of Generation Y. But, with new research – nobody can call us stupid. In “Cohort Differences in Verbal Ability: Testing the Word Obsolescence Hypothesis,” researchers Shawn Dorius, Duane Alwin and Juliana Pacheco presented their study to the American ...

    Groceries, Garbage and Going Green

    “Excuse me, do you have 25 cents?” A kind, raspy voice asked a group of the CollegeVox interns and me as we strolled back from a company fieldtrip to The Hyppo in Downtown Gainesville. I handed my melting pop to one of the interns, Julio, and dug through my wallet. Among debit cards, rewards cards and expired coupons was one lone dollar. ...

    The Grass is Greener: An Economic Argument for Legalizing Marijuana

    The state of Florida calls it a Schedule I controlled substance. My dad calls it “grass.” You probably call it weed, unless you’re talking to your mom and in that case, it’s “the marijuana” and you’ve never even seen it in real life before. Call it what you want, but marijuana has more to offer the U.S. besides a nice buzz. The idea ...
