My best friend and I were reminiscing about the ’90s tonight. Remember inflatable furniture? I still miss mine. Well, now it’s back and even better than before! YES! We can hang onto our childhood for a few more years. <3

Our first video!

Hey, everyone! Here at The Good Life On Campus, we’d love to start incorporating videos on our blog. However, we need YOUR help figuring out what sort of content you’d love to see!

We plan on having the first video up in the near future. Would you like to see an interview? Perhaps a DIY video tutorial for some dorm room decorations on the cheap? Would you like to see a discussion about a certain topic that effects college students? (We could talk about something like being frugal, dealing with the stress of college, or maybe even more serious issues such as school safety and sexual assault on campus.) 

What would you most like to see?

So I am all settled into my dorms and I brought this along! I know you&#8217;re thinking candles aren&#8217;t dorm legal (and you&#8217;re right). Lucky for me, this is a light cleverly disguised as a candle! It even flickers!
Look, I love candles. I look forward to thunderstorms and power outages. I like to read Poe by candlelight, flickering creepiness, and I was probably a lot like Tim Burton&#8217;s Vincent as a wee little lass. Not being able to bring candles to my dorm was a bummer, but this was an awesome solution. Also, skulls. GUYS. Skulls. &lt;3

7 safety tips for college students

Posted by Catherine Cloutier  August 27, 2013 02:21 PM

The beginning of college is an exciting time in students’ lives. But for many, the prospect of being on their own in a new and unfamiliar environment is frightening.

With the help of the Brandeis and Tufts’ police departments, we assembled a list of tips for students to keep them safe—and happy—during the new school year.

1. Lock your doors.

Make sure your dorm room or apartment is safe secure by keeping your doors locked at all times, especially if you are sleeping or out.

If you are moving into an off campus apartment, check the exterior doors and windows to make sure they have good locks. If the locks do not appear sturdy, ask your landlord or building manager to replace them.

For those in campus housing, do not prop open residence hall doors. They are locked to keep you safe.

2. Be aware of your surroundings.

Stay on well-lit and well-traveled pathways. Become familiar with the locations of campus emergency blue-light telephones. Remove ear buds or headphones so you can hear someone approaching. If possible, plan to walk across campus or to late night classes with a friend.

If you are walking to a car, carry your keys in your hand. Before entering the car, check that no one is inside or lingering nearby.

Most importantly, trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, get out of the area as quickly as possible.

3. Program campus security numbers into your cell phone.

Many colleges offer late night ride services. Add that number, as well the emergency and non-emergency college police department lines, into your cell phone’s contacts list.

If you’re anxious about walking home late at night, use the ride service. It’s there to protect you.

4. Keep an eye on your belongings.

Don’t leave your laptop, cell phone, or anything of value on a table in the library or in a classroom. Walk with your purse or backpack fully zipped.

5. Know your limits.

When you’re drinking at a party, know when enough is enough. If you’re feeling sick, ask your friends to leave with you. If they refuse, call a campus ride service.

Opt for a can of beer instead of a Solo cup. If cups are the only option, pour your own drink or watch the person who does.

6. Report any suspicious activity or people.

Do not let unknown people into your residence hall. If there’s a stranger in your dorm or apartment, call the campus police immediately. Do not confront the person.

7. Ask for help.

If you feel unsafe, stressed, or overwhelmed, reach out to those around you. Colleges have a network of support, including residence hall advisers, health professionals, and campus police officers. Take advantage of the services provided on campus.
