Your Roommate the Not-so-Psychic
Roommates have it in them to use all the cups, and wait until there is nothing left to drink out of to do the dishes. They have it in them to cook Spaghetti-Oâ€™s in the microwave for 17 minutes and not wipe up the sauce explosions. Roommates have a myriad of options when it comes to aggravating those around them; however, one thing a roommate cannot do is READ YOUR MIND. If the drinking cup marathon and sauce explosion is bothering you, it is your responsibility to let your roommate know. Letting a series of little annoyances build-up inside is not healthy, and chances are a simple short conversation between roommates will help the situation.[continue…]
Stop Studying and Take a Break!
When hitting the books hard, itâ€™s important to take breaks. If staying alert all day long (especially in those wee hours) is something you would like to get better at, try eating protein and carbohydrates in small amounts.

Be Afraid! Crotch Goblins are coming!
Crotch Goblins return to RITâ€™s campus this Sunday night! Think of Pokemon cards with an STI: sexually transmitted infections are a reality at RIT. This yearâ€™s series spotlights 4 common STIâ€™s and a new non-STI but rather scary condition: Henry Herpes, Gerald Genital Warts, Carlos Chlamydia, Gerdy Gonorrhea and the newest addition â€“ Billy Bed Bug. Billy isnâ€™t an STI, but considering heâ€™s frequently shared in â€˜bedtime behavior,â€™ ResLife took a stretch to include him in the campaign. Bags containing Crotch Goblin cards (collect all 5!), condoms, candy and a few other promotional items will be left at each apartment.[continue…]
Reverse Trick-or-Treating Sunday Night
In addition to being home Sunday night to be the first to pick over the Crotch Goblins, youâ€™ll also want to look out for the Reverse Trick-or-Treating. ResLife staff and student leaders will be going door to door giving out candy â€“ while supplies last! (Want your club to get out and meet the community? Contact Cha Ron Sattler at firstname.lastname@example.org if youâ€™d like to â€˜reverse trick or treatâ€™!)
