Episode 4: Partying
In our culture, college is as much about partying as it is about anything else. On this episode, we hear from a medley of freshmen year vets who describe their schools’ party scenes, run-ins with the law, and the effects of too much alcohol. We found that partying is different on every campus, alcohol can be less than conducive for perfect health and excellent academic achievement, and that there is absolutely nothing wrong with not partaking in it.

For many, starting college means leaving the comforts of home for the first time. Whether you're moving down the street or across the world, this can be an intimidating experience.

Episode 1: Dating
We have come to understand the modern-day college campus as a hormonal jungle populated by young people, recently unhinged from the supervision of their families. It's not always an easy thing to manage. It's normal to be nervous upon entering this world, but this podcast is here to help. We talked to real life veterans of this chaotic brew of competing motives, moralities, biological urges, and social pressures to get their brutally honest stories and advice. Listen and be entertained, educated, and comforted. They all made it through, and you will too.
