A week of QUICK and EASY healthy meals!

This week has been the busiest of the semester so far for me so I wanted to focus on truly easy to make recipes for those weeks when we just don’t have much time for cooking. None of these take more than 15 minutes to pull together but they’re all still delicious and healthy! Take one day to prep all these recipes so as you make your way through busy times you’ll have everything ready to grab and go!

If your schedule isn’t quite as hectic as mine has been save this plan for a week during midterms, finals, or when that big project is due and you know you won’t have as much time for fitness & cooking! :)

For more weekly meal plans complete with recipes and groceries go here!

Study Snacking 101
As we start nearing the end of the semester I know my work load has gone up so I made this list with lots of healthy study snacks to help out! I like to bring a few snacks with me in different categories so whatever I end up wanting I’m prepared for. All of these are easy to eat (meaning you can eat with one hand) so they won’t take you away from your work, just hold you off until you’re ready for a full meal break!
As a college senior these are the snacks I’ve come to love while studying but they’re also great if you’re at work and want something easy and healthy to keep you focused. You can bring them in with you in the morning or have some ready in a mini fridge in your office!

12 Tips to Survive Spring Break

If you are a college student, you are probably counting down the days until spring break. Here are 12 spring break tips to keep you safe while you’re having fun away from school.

1. Don’t be stupid in the ocean. 
If you are going to be swimming in the ocean, do you even know what rip currents and rip tides are? These strong currents can quickly carry you out to sea if you aren’t careful and how you swim out of these currents is counterintuitive. Talk to a lifeguard about swimming conditions before getting in the water.

2. Protect your location on social media sites.
Sharing too much information on your location on FacebookTwitter andFoursquare may endanger your safety, warns the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. Adjust your privacy settings and use your best judgment when checking in on Facebook and Foursquare. Be cautious about revealing personal information and location through status updates or tweets with Twitter trends like #SpringBreak and #SB2012./p>

3. Consider travel insurance.
Unfortunately, most student health policies don’t cover individuals once they leave U.S. soil. Stephanie Kaplan, Her Campus co-founder, recommends that students obtain a good travel insurance policy that covers illness, injury and emergency evacuation coverage.

4. Create a code word.
Create a secret signal or code word to let your friends know when you are uncomfortable and need them to intervene. When you are with friends, arrive together and leave together. Establish a place to meet in advance if you get separated.

5. Don’t drink in a hot tub.
Forget about all those MTV videos that makes drinking look essential for a hot-tub experience. Alcohol can dilate blood vessels and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. The effects of drinking are felt faster and stronger if you’re sitting in a hot tub.

6. Before traveling get up-to-date on your vaccines.
That advice comes from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Click on the CDC’s vaccine quiz to find out if you need to be vaccinated.

7. Take a copy of your passport. 
There is no worse way to end a vacation than to discover that your passport has been stolen or lost.

Waking Up for Class

One of the biggest adjustments in college is getting yourself to class. This is especially challenging when classes are early in the morning. One of the surest ways to fail a class is to not attend. This is why it’s so important to learn how to wake up for class. Outlined below are some guidelines that you might find useful in getting awake in the morning.

  • Develop a consistent sleep pattern. Very few people can adjust to a sleep pattern that varies by more than an hour or two from day to day. This includes the weekend. You need at least seven hours of sleep every night. If you have an 8 o’clock class, you should be asleep by midnight to get to class on time the next day and still have time to get ready and eat something.
  • Get ready for classes the night before. Your bookbag should be filled with books you’ll need. Your homework should be

Dating Survival Guide

By: Marylin Rodriguez

I’m sure that many of you would agree that as college students, most of our love lives are either non-existent or should be made into a reality show called “My Love Life is a Joke.”

Sure, it’s always fun to look back at those disastrous dates and laugh about them with your friends, but at the same time it’s only natural to wonder what exactly went wrong.

Many of us forget that the first date tells us a lot about a person and instead of impressing our dates, we just make complete jackasses out of ourselves without even noticing it. So to avoid any future embarrassment and get that chance for a second date, I’ve conducted a list of things that you should NEVER do while on a date.

Think of this list as more of a survival guide for the young and the hopeless.

CW: Paine comes home with All-American honors

EDITOR’S NOTE: ALEXIS PAINE IS A SPORTS REPORTER AND ALSO A MEMBER OF THE ALABAMA TRACK & FIELD TEAM.

As I stepped onto the track at Drake University, an overwhelming rush hit me. There were so many amazing athletes surrounding me, including my four teammates. Our five-month season and two semesters of training had led us here: the NCAA Track and Field National Championships.

This year, the Crimson Tide overcame obstacles to bring Tuscaloosa four national titles, and the five of us participating in the track championship wanted to do our part in representing the Tide. We were determined to give the competition all we had.
