When it comes to your wardrobe, it's time for a clean sweep. Letting go of a hard-won or nostalgic piece (the style-blog-famous tulle Lan...

In my three years at Northwestern, I think it's safe to say that I have consumed a lot of pizza. I'm not talking about ordering in every once in a while or going to Lou Malnati's with friends a few times a quarter. No, I'm actually at the point at which most delivery people know me by name and can ...

Rick Santorum isn't exactly known as a friend of the blacks or gays. Though his platform contradicts my most central beliefs, I proudly cast my vote for him in Illinois. Call me a masochist if you want to, but I had my reasons. I wasn't simply following the trend of some Democrats in other states with ope...

The clothes you wear to break a sweat on the treadmill in preparation for that Eres bikini have gone from SPAC to street this spring. Think racerback shapes, mesh, neoprene and pumped-up kicks in a non-gym setting. For multiple seasons, designers have embraced an athletic aesthetic. See Alexander Wang's seminal spr...

NIT. The three-letter acronym stands for National Invitation Tournament. But for the many Northwestern men's basketball fans who stood by their televisions Sunday afternoon and watched as CBS's Greg Gumbel revealed this year's NCAA Tournament Bracket, the three letters took on a different meaning: N...
