Ask Colleen: A farewell

May 3, 2017

How did you get started with writing an advice column? What has been your favorite part about doing this column? Did you learn anything along the way?



Ask Colleen: On campus or off

April 26, 2017

I'm currently a sophomore and, as you know, students are required to live on campus for their first two years. Since I'll be a junior next year, I really wanted to live off campus.

Ask Colleen: Dealing with the senior slide

April 19, 2017

I am a senior graduating in May, and I have lost all of my motivation. There are 17 days of school left, and the motivation is gone. I feel like I have hit a wall.

Ask Colleen: Living with friends

April 12, 2017

I'm moving into an apartment with one of my friends. I'm really nervous because I've heard people say that living with your friend isn't a good idea. I don't want to ruin this friendship.

Ask Colleen: The flirty male friend

April 5, 2017

Dear Colleen,

I met this guy while I was out, and right away I asked him what his intentions were. He said just friends, so I gave him my information.

Ask Colleen: Is it worth saving a friendship you may not want to keep?

March 29, 2017

I recently had a falling out with someone who used to be one of my very close friends. We got into an argument and her actions that followed just really showed me the type of person that she is.

Ask Colleen: Moving off-campus

March 1, 2017

I'm a sophomore on campus this semester, and I have decided to live off-campus next semester. All of my friends are going to be living in a different place than me

Ask Colleen: Escaping hookup culture

February 22, 2017

So far I have been having bad luck with guys. I'm old fashioned when it comes to dating. I get attached easily, so I don't like the hookup culture that surrounds me on the university. How do I get past this? Please, help!

Ask Colleen: When the joke goes too far

February 16, 2017

I've got a friend who is getting a little too comfortable joking around with me, and it's getting to the point where I feel like she's attacking me personally instead of just messing around.

Ask Colleen: Studying abroad

February 8, 2017

I am thinking about studying abroad, but I am hesitant to do it. I've always wanted to travel and have never had the opportunity, but I feel like college would be the perfect time.
