Katy’s Korner: Holiday gifts don’t have to come with stress or strings

You might be used to giving gifts to all of your family members and friends. You might be used to having to pay for them. Maybe you never did gifts with your friends, or your parents would pay for the gifts. Everyone comes into this time of year with different things they expect of their friends and family.

Katy’s Korner: Don’t be afraid to use your safety net, that’s what it’s there for

Katy’s Korner: Already in a crisis over Halloween costumes? Just be S.M.A.R.T.

Halloweekend is coming and I’m so freaking excited for the best holiday of the year, but I’m having costume issues. What to wear, what’s relevant, what’s offensive?

Katy’s Korner: Layer a turtleneck under those overalls before you’re over it all

It is finally fall. Fall is nigh. It’s time to unpack the boxes labeled “sweaters”, stuff those bikinis and swim trunks into the bottom drawer and wrestle that winter coat off the top shelf.

Katy’s Korner: You don’t have to lose your religion

Religion on this campus isn’t a clear-cut thing. There are people who are ingrained in religious communities through and through, people who live split time between their faith-friends and their other friends, people who merge both worlds peacefully, people who abandon their religion completely and people who have never been exposed to religion in the first place.

Katy’s Korner: Stop outing sexual assault survivors. Sincerely, Survivors

What do I do if my friends keep outing me as a sexual assault survivor? It’s something that takes me a lot of time to be comfortable telling people, so I’m not okay with it being talked about before I’m ready. I don’t want to lose friends over this, but I also don’t want to have to sacrifice my anonymity.

A fantasy world where frat formals aren’t scary

‘Tis the season, baby. The time of year when some fraternities have out-of-town formals in places like Chicago and Nashville, Tenn., and non-fraternity members are generally asked to come with. It’s a weekend of sight-seeing, drinking, dancing and fun times, or so I’ve been told.

Wake me up when September ends

If you look at me and say, “I get 10 hours of sleep every night,” rest assured you’ll find me following you around because you’re my next case study.

You look tired too, you conniving snake

“You look tired” really means “You look worse than usual, and I can say this under the guise of concern.”
