Have your residents been feeling stressed lately? Do you want to do something to cheer them up and remind them of their sense of community? Is it exam week and you need a snack to stay sane? In this post we will provide you with four easy and delicious dorm recipes that make eating healthy in your dorm a breeze.
The struggle to be real person is always hard. Especially in a place so surreal, like Athens. There’s rarely a time when you feel as though your life is completely stable because that’s just how college can be. A part of that is feeling as though you’re constantly unprepared for real life tasks. A lot of people when they come to college truly have no idea how to do things like laundry, dishes, or even boil water. THAT’S OK. Just like the overpriced classes you’re taking: you’ll learn how to overcome in no time. That being said, you have a unique opportunity to learn from someone who, just like many others, didn’t know how A LOT of shit upon arriving at Ohio University. I’m going to take you through some very basic, but vitally important tasks and responsibilities every student should become familiar with.
Dealing with the strenuous experience of college, eating healthy can help you manage homework, classes, and jobs. Felling overwhelmed is something we all deal with especially when starting at a new school, it’s easy to loosen your diet by skipping out on dinning halls and turn to ordering out.
The key to being successful and having a good budget is to be self-disciplined and stick to your set budget. Once you set a budget find ways to stick to that budget or even spend less than your budget if possible. Try to put money back in a safe place or bank account that can’t be touched, or find a way to make your money hard to get to so it’s not easily accessible. People tend to spend more money if its easily accessible, so if you make your money hard to get to then in the long run you will save more and more money.
There are multiple ways to save money, but if you follow these two basic rules after you graduate college you will be less in debt than your peers. This will also translate to your habits as you grow older which will allow you to be more financially independent.
The day starts at 8 a.m. exerting energy up and down the court, running from basket to basket. Class follows until 6 o'clock in the evening. After class there is work and sometimes meetings. By the time evening comes around, hunger strikes. Without enough time to grab a quick meal inbetween obligations, hunger clouds all other thoughts.
Finally the day is over. Home on the couch with the TV on, still hungry. Don't want to cook, just want some food. The clock says 10:00 p.m. Almost everything is closed but late night pizza! Papa Johns is still open. They stay open until 1 o'clock in the morning. Papa Johns has some tasty pizza when you get the right toppings.
Craving a large pizza late at night but only have $10 and I found an awesome deal for a large 1 topping pizza.
As a busy college student, I just don't feel like cooking all the time and I believe many other people can relate. However, I sometimes find myself getting frustrated when trying to figure out where to eat around Athens. There are so many restaurants to choose from and I don't have the time to pour over my options.
With only a small budget to work with, I am often looking to find a decent option that is cheap and can keep me full. However, I am done with settling for an average meal! I can't tell you how many times I've found myself picking a generic option like Wendy's or Subway, only to walk down the street and see an amazing lunch deal for something much better than what I had eaten. Then to add insult to injury, I try to go back to that restaurant with the great deal only to realize it's the wrong day and I miss out again.
To help us all take advantage of the specials Athens' restaurants have to offer, I put together this list for what I consider to be the best lunch deal for each day of the week. Keep reading to find the specials you want to take advantage of and which one you think is the winner of the week!
According to studies done by companies like Grubhub and Bustle, pizza is consistantly among the top 10 most ordered foods on college campuses across the nation. Here in Athens, it seems to be no different. With over eight different pizza options within walking distance, and even more in the surrounding area, it's no secret that Ohio University students like their pies just as much as the next school. Being that there are so many options to get your pizza fix, I'm here to assist you with the same question that always pops up...Which one?!
Ohio University's family weekends allow students to share their favorite spots on campus and Court Street with their loved ones. Athens' local businesses recognize these university events by providing families with activities and food specials to enjoy together. Ohio University's Dads Weekend is no exception. From dinner to drinks, Court Street in Uptown Athens is the place to be during dads weekend.
