College Style Changes Reflect Student Individualism
Budget and Maturity Play a Major Role in Cothing Choice and Appearance
College is an important stage in our lives that has significant influence on who we become. Are the fashion styles we choose an indicator of how much we mature as individuals in college?
According to websites such as CollegeFashion.com, CollegeFashionista.com and HerCampus.com that focus on fashion trends in college for students, the years in college are transformative when it comes to style, but it is also a matter of what can be done when time is scarce.
“In college, fashion is highly subjective,” said an article on www.thebudgetfashionista.com. “Usually if it smells clean and it somewhat matches then it is a fashionable outfit.”
Does Privacy Exist in the Digital Age?
Geo-caching Twitter Users Become Subject for Artists
Be careful what privacy settings you have on your social networking accounts; your status updates may become someone’s masterpiece, and they could end up anywhere.
The Cleveland State Art Gallery is currently showing an exhibit that raises the issue of privacy in the digital age, titled “Life Imitates Artifice.”
One of the exhibits, “Geolocation: Tributes to the Data Stream,” was created by Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman. The work uses status updates from the social networking website Twitter which the artists found to be particularly compelling.
Utilizing the geotag information that users can opt to have on their account, the users are tracked through their GPS coordinates. Larson and Shindelman travelled to the physical location of the tweet and took a photograph of that location, then paired the image with the text. The photographs are on display in Gallery C.
There is no doubt that technology has revolutionized our way of communicating. In the pursuit to relate the virtual and physical realms and understand what this says about our world today, Nate Larson believes that in the virtual universe, we can feel as though we are on a personal level with strangers because we are following their daily activities. “We imagine ourselves as virtual flâneurs, ethnographers of the Internet, exploring cities 140 characters at a time through the lives of others,” says Larson.

Live Well Be Well, a motto Cleveland- Marshall Law School wants to promote to law students.

Starting in January, three panel sessions have been presented to conclude with the April Live Well Be Well Fair. Monday Feb. 28 was the last panel session titled Law School Finance and Debt Management. “This was the best [turn out] so far,” said Valissa Turner, manager of Student Affairs, “the second session had about 10 and around 20 came the first one.” The spacious Moot Court Room was scattered with law students munching on pizza listening to the panelist discuss debt and finance management.
