University of Michigan Best College Aid

The University of Michigan became one of the latest schools to change its calendar and scrap spring break–that’s right, spring break.

That magical week of the year where all of a sudden Florida is not the worst state in the country, will be saying “Aloha, Beaches” to Michigan students next year.

With all of the uncertainty that has been surrounding college athletics this semester, many universities are turning to a new kind of sports: eSports.

That’s right, to all the parents and teachers who told me that all of my hours of playing video games would amount to nothing, well, guess what?

You were right.

But still, I’m jealous of all you middle schoolers right now, staying up all night, playing Call of Duty.

Back in my day they used to call it ADHD.

tNow, they are calling it training for a scholarship.

Two California Sophomores have developed an app designed to revolutionize the way people start face-to-face conversations in the age of the Coronavirus.

The name of the app is Meetsy. 

I gotta say, I hope one of their future updates includes a guide on what to do once those face-to-face conversations start.

Don’t get me wrong, I am a very social person but Zoom has absolutely spoiled me rotten.

One of our favorite stories from earlier this fall has some new developments.

Full House star, and college admissions diva: Lori Laughlin will reportedly be allowed to take pilates classes and music lessons while serving her time at the federal correctional institute in Victorville, California.

This is reportedly a way for her to start preparing for her new lead role in the crossover series: “Orange is the new Full House”

Once Laughlin finishes her stay in Victorville, she is ordered to pay a fine of $150,000 and complete 100 hours of community service.

On top of this, she’ll serve two years of supervised release. 

And although not quite accurate, many people are calling this a Full House arrest.

So between predictions of spring breakers going wild, dating apps for Tik Tokers, and prison pilates for TV stars, this week has had it all.

I am aware that there are a lot of negative things going on around our country today.

So I hope tuning in with us every week makes things even a little bit better.

If we can get just one laugh out of you then this is all worth it.

This has been, The State of the U.
