Don’t ask straight men for fashion advice. They just don’t get it. When you feel really good about wearing a fur coat or carrying a designer handbag, check out what straight men think about your fashion sense.

You created your schedule so you’d have all of your classes in a row and be done for the day. But your 80-minute class was only 30 minutes long today. What do you do now? Here are some suggestions:
Homework you’ve probably been putting off
Whether it’s something due in your next class or a research paper you haven’t even thought about starting yet, unexpected free time is the perfect opportunity to force yourself to get work done.
Eat food or grab some coffee
College students forget to eat sometimes. It’s just a consequence of how ridiculously busy our schedules are. Use your free hour to grab some to-go pizza from the dining hall or even just a bagel from a cafe. Or maybe down an espresso or two.
Read a book
It could be assigned reading for a class; it could also be a something you actually enjoy reading. Fifty minutes is more than enough time to make a dent in that literature you’ve been wanting to or are forced to read.
Bond with your professors
Look up the office hours of the professors you’ve been meaning to go see but haven’t. Even if you don’t need help with the subject matter in that class, it’s always a good idea to get to know the people you’re spending a semester with.
If doing anything productive actually sounds like a nightmare, find a cozy spot near your next class and catch up on “Mad Men.” You only have a few episodes left in season four anyway. Just give in to the urge.
Were you up all night in the library working on that research paper you finished an hour before class started? Does the idea of facing the rest of your classes without getting any sleep make you want to curl up in a ball in a corner? Find a comfy couch. Take a nap. You deserve it.
Write your listicle for Fundamentals of Online Journalism
What better homework to do during your free time than an upcoming project due in the class that granted you that magical hour? Grab a beverage loaded with caffeine to double your productivity and maybe even come up with some witty subheads.
