saintly-shadow said: One of my college problems is that I have a professor who never mentions due dates, even on the syllabus...until the day something is due. Ever have one like that, and how did you handle it?
Ha, I’ve had a professor like this. I’d start emailing them or talking to them after class about upcoming assignments. Don’t harass them or act stressed out — just casually be like, “so, is that assignment due next week or the week after?” If they don’t know at the moment, send a folow-up email or go to their office hours. Just do your best to stay on top of it — they’ll remember you and appreciate the effort
lesbianadvances said: Do you have any advice for getting into college (specifically BU)?
There are a lot of different factors that contribute to college acceptance. Overall I’d say to just make sure you keep your GPA up in high school and have well-rounded extra curriculars. And obviously SAT/ACT are important… Put some thought into your essays too, especially if you don’t have an interview.
Anonymous said: would you recommend going to grad school for a degree that you majored in (if it's not a STEM major)? i mean im communication which isnt totally useless but meh #secondsemesterjuniorstruggles
I’m not too familiar with the grad school options for communications, but from what I can tell, a lot of communications majors from my school get a job after graduation. Talk to your professors and advisors, weigh your options and figure out what you’d want to study in grad school before making any decisions. YOU GOT TIME

As a freshman, everyone is in the same situation. Get to know the people on your floor, everyone’s going to be trying to make friends. In addition, see if your school has a program that gets all the international students together, you’ll be able to meet other people in your situation.

Absolutely! Just make sure the light doesn’t bother them and you should be set.

Nah, I have MWF 9am and TR 9:30. It gets you out of bed and gives you an early start to the day. :)

When you walk home the morning after a hookup. Last night’s clothes, messed up hair, etc etc. Also referred to as the “Stride of pride”

Freshman year was the only year I had a random roommate, and we just clicked because we were both outgoing and friendly but didn’t try to do everything together. Just be chill
Anonymous said: How do you do your makeup in college? Do you put it on in your dorm, or is that weird?
Yeah your room is fine. I don’t think anyone cares either way where you do your makeup as long as you’re not putting it on in class
