Managing Type I Diabetes in College: Do’s and Don’t’s

Type 1 diabetes is a disease that is characterized by the body’s inability to produce insulin. Patients are usually diagnosed with this disease early on in life, after exhibiting common symptoms, including frequent urination, weight loss, and abnormally frequent hunger and thirst.

How to Split Your Rent Fairly Using SplitTheRent.org

If you’re someone who shares (or plans to share) a place with friends or roommates, you’ll know how hard it can be to split up the rent fairly. There is always a much larger Master bedroom which often has a private full bathroom. Some rooms may have different sized closets and windows. When splitting the rent, all of these things have to be taken into consideration so that everyone is paying a fair amount for their room. So just how do you split up the rent while taking all of these extra details into consideration? You do it using the rent calculator for roommates at SplitTheRent.org.

Getting on the Guest List

Let’s face it: getting into the hottest clubs near campus can present a problem for even the most presentable of college students. Dressing to the nines, bringing a bushel of babes, and throwing around a little cash may help to get you in the door, but for the average college student on a budget, these time-honored tricks simply might not be an option.

So if you’re looking to party it up at some city hotspots without having to produce a wad of Jacksons to jump the line, here are a few tips that could help to get your name on the guest list:

So loading up your entourage with lovely ladies is a great way to bypass the line of unfortunate souls waiting for entry. Of course, this scenario will play out a lot better if you look money, so dress for the occasion and have your female companions do the same.
