It’s my senior year, and I’m applying to college. Yes, that means there’s a lot on my mind, including living on my own and covering the insurmountable costs of college. However, I have a more immediate financial concern: college application fees. Let’s say I am applying to a college. I ha...

A Twitter survey by the Food Network in 2013 said 71 percent of people believed food was the best part of Thanksgiving.

As prom season has passed, disabled promposals are going viral, gaining support as well as pity and exploitation.
