Dealing with Stress

Posted by Arzoo

The first year of college can be hectic, especially because everything is new to you.


New friends, new city, new school, new classes, everything will be different. It can be stressful and difficult to get use to the lifestyle. The whole new transition can make you homesick or overwhelmed by classes. It is crucial to learn how to balance out your life. Dealing with stress is something all college students do but dealing with stress effectively is something we learn as we go along. To help ease stress try making friends so once a week you can go out and just have fun. Take long walks around the campus because it helps with stress levels. Eat healthy and drink a lot of water, junk food can make you irritable. Also, stay in contact with your old friends and family because it sometimes gives you that extra support or push you need.


Alpha Pi Sigma Rush Week

Posted by Marilu

The excitement of homecoming might be over but the excitement of rush week is around the corner for sororities. Rush week is the time were sororities and fraternities have various types of events to recruit new members such as; information nights and socials. In most cases, organizations rush around the same time but it varies depending on the organization. Even though rush week can be stressful its still fun. Every year we have a theme and this year’s theme is NFL and our slogan is “Drafting the best since 1990”.

As social chair, I’ve been planning a few socials with different fraternities and sororities. Our rush chair has planned information nights and events where the interests can get to know the sisters and more about what we do. We will rushing starting February 10-19th and I hope its a successful rush and get a good group of girls interested in our sorority. Below is the flyer of events:

Two Beds, Two Homes

Posted by Beatriz Alvarez

I always wanted to leave home and experience life beyond the small town I had lived in all my life. But when I moved to East Bay, I cried for weeks, thinking it was a mistake to leave my comfort zone to a place where I didn’t know anyone. It was a year until I felt completely comfortable. I became friends with my roommates and became involved in campus activities as a contributor for the school newspaper, design editor for one of the school’s literary magazine, and a volunteer in the Event Squad.

My advice: don’t quit when it gets tough. Enjoy the ride. If you ever doubt the decision you make about leaving home, remind yourself why you did. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. The Bay has become my second home. And put yourself out there and have fun. Life doesn’t always have to be so serious.
