What is RepNation for?
RepNation is the country's leading student rep network. RepNation is a part of The Mr. Youth Agency, the nation's premier youth marketing agency. At Mr. Youth, we create and deliver innovative marketing programs that assist some of the world's greatest brands in reaching the college market. In order to effectively reach the college market, many of our programs focus on the recruitment and management of student representatives.

Where do I come in?
As a student, you are the expert on your campus. You know the best places to promote, the events that we need to be at, student group leaders and what messages resonate loudest on your campus. We look to you to help us create a customized marketing plan for your campus and to assist in the execution of that plan.

What do I get for being a student rep?
Being a student representative will give you amazing real world experience. You will get experience creating and managing your own marketing program and will have real results to show for it. In short, you will have a huge leg up and great experience to speak about when you graduate. As if that wasn't enough, most of our programs offer reps the ability to earn very attractive compensation and/or incentive packages. And you get all this while building your own work schedule.

What are you looking for?
All programs are different and the qualifications change based on the client. Some programs call for technical expertise, some an interest in fashion, others for those who love throwing events… What does not change is our search for sharp, motivated students who enjoy and take pride in being the voice of our clients' brands on their campus.

Arizona State U - Tempe
Does anyone have any information on the graduate program at Arizona State University - Tempe?

I graduate with my BS in Comm Dis in May and I am exploring where else I might want to apply for masters. Any information would be appreciated - good, bad, or indifferent. I've checked out their website - now I'm looking for the "real" information, I know that what's in the catalog and what's "real" are not always the same!

I hope this isn't off-topic, but if it is, please feel free to let me know and I will remove it.

I am wondering what laptops are best for dorms. I don't envision myself taking my laptop all over the place; I'm still pretty old-fashioned in terms of taking notes by hand in class (it helps me learn, and being on the computer while someone is trying to teach me something just distracts me from what I'm supposed to be learning). Thus, my laptop will probably stay in my room most of the time. I am looking for something as affordable as possible, but also with very good performance and specs.
I am asking here because I am especially interested in suggestions made by those who do use laptops now in college. I am looking for a NON-Apple/Mac laptop.

Hey everyone! I'm a new member. My name is Amanda, I'm 19, and I'm just finishing up my freshman year of college. I commuted this year, but I'm moving on campus next year. I'm wondering how much it's going to cost me to furnish/decorate my dorm. A few things to keep in mind:

- It's a suite, which means I will be splitting the cost of any large items (mini-fridge, TV) with 3 other girls instead of 1.
- The room comes with furniture such as bed, dresser, desk, etc. so I won't need to buy any of that.
- I'm planning to shop at fairly low-price stores such as Linens 'n Things, and Target.

Any advice or sharing of personal experiences would be really appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Facebook and Drinking
I'm a student at UC Berkeley and I also have a website: http://JorgeDrunk.com. The Resident Director at the dorm where I live decided she had to find a way to get me in trouble for drinking. Despite never been caught violating any policies she assumed I did because of said website. Anyways, one day I was reported for singing in the courtyard, I was drunk but being drunk isn't a violation of dorm policy here. During my hearing however the RD tried to get me in trouble not for being loud but for Facebook pictures. The story went online at a popular school news website and people were outraged. Do you people think that pictures from Facebook, Myspace, or personal website should be used to get people in trouble? Keep in mind these pictures weren't being used as evidence for having been caught drinking but as a separate violation.

I think as long as you don't get caught redhanded there is nothing you can do about it. I have some more information about this story on my website.

Drinking questions
Here's the deal: I'm new to drinking and, ignorant for someone my age (22), I don't really know a lot about alcohol and was hoping you could help me out.
I hear people talk about getting a buzz. What does that feel like and how much do you have to drink to get to that point (for reference, I'm a female of about 150 pounds)? Do you necessarily have to consciously feel the effects of the alcohol to actually be affected? What I mean by that is this: I've had drinks that I thought were relatively strong, but I never could actually feel anything. I wonder though, if it made me looser or lowered my inhibitions any without me realizing it...is that possible?
Also, what exactly is margarita mix, and how is using that any different from making a regular margarita with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice?
That's all I can think of right now, and I'm very grateful for any responses you have for me. Thank you everyone!

a little bit of humour for you...
"As you may have noticed, we have trapped you in your dorm room. In order to be set free, we demand you agree to our terms:

1) Browning Basement hockey must be reinstated.
2) You pay for the dorm dinner at Olive Garden.
3) Allow full-time access to the computer lab.

Faliure to comply with these demands will result in your permanent captivity. Being the merciful group that we are, we have allowed you the rations of one (1) granola bar. For your sake, WE HOPE HELP ARRIVES BEFORE THEN."

That is what I opened my door to this morning. My residents had taped the entire door opening closed with duck tape, top to bottom.

I did think it was rather funny, but at the same time, who DOES that?!?!?

The EvidenceCollapse )

The housekeeping staff actually woke me up as they stood outside my door and talked loudly: "Oh my GAWD! Look at this poor person's door!!!....Holy SHIT! It's the RA's ROOM! That's just wrong!"

Laying in bed, I was like, oooooohhhh shit, what went down last night and what did they do to my door?!

It took a few minutes just to get all the tape off my door. Lucky for my residents' asses, the tape did not peel off any of the new paint, because the Hall Director would not have been pleased!

So I need good ideas for revenge. I'm not sure what I want to do.

Beer tasting extravaganza!
In these years of my life, those spent scrounging through college, and occasionally wanting a cheap buzz, it's good to know that RacketMag.com has done the leg work for me when it comes to finding the cheapest sauce. Check out the lower left box for their comparison of cheap hooch

hallway activities
Hi everyone.

My name is Kate and I'll be a sophomore at the University of Rhode Island this fall. This semester will be my first as an RA in a freshman dorm, and part of my job requirements is to design some sort of programme that my hall can do as a group. I think this is something that most colleges do, so I was wondering what your favourite programmes/activities have been in the past if you've lived in a dorm and if your RA was required to have them.

I will have about $25/activity, and there are maybe 25 kids in my hall. So yes, $1/person/activity...not a lot to work with exactly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

New mod // various stuff
Hey everyone! french_hoorn here. iemapplescript recently made me a maintainer, so I thought I'd try and live up to the job. I'm a resident assistant and president/founder of my campus's NRHH chapter, so yeah, the passion for living on campus is definitely there. ;)

I've started by giving the community an icon - it's more or less a stand-in until someone comes up with something cooler. The icon itself is one of the symbols of National Residence Hall Honorary: the chain of leadership. Membership in NRHH is one of the highest honors someone living on campus can receive, so I figured the chain would be a good thing to have in an icon for a community dedicated to on-campus living.

I've also added a few more things to the Interests on the info page and plan on tweaking the userinfo a bit. I'll also be promoting this community like whoa and asking other college-related communities, specifically the ones directed at on-campus life, to be affiliated with us. This is an awesome community and I think it has a lot of potential.

Mod Post
Since I am graduating from college in a month and leaving the dorms (yes I stayed in the dorms for 4 years), I fiqured that someone else might want to be moderator. I'll still be around, but yeah.....

Anywho, if you are interested drop a note.

Edit: I can't use grammar. I've fixed it.

Hello, I'm a highschool senior soon to be in college. I'm looking for really snazzy bedding (comforters or duvet covers, etc.) and rugs and I've looked allover the place and I can't find anything I'm really in love with. I'm looking for something bright and vibrant and definately no girly, kiddy patterns. I've checked Linens 'N' Things and Bed, Bath and Beyond. I was wondering if someone could recommend any other places (online or whatever) to look. Thanks so much.

Looking for information
I am searching for information on The "National Soceity of Collegiate Scholars".

I'm looking specifically to see if it's legit and worth my $75 they are wanting, or if I'd be better off just trashing the "nomination" and letting it go.

Does anyone have any information on this particular group? Good, bad, indifferent?

Hi! I just joined this community and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a Community Advisor at Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. Our school's a medium sized school in a somewhat small town, so for any fun most of us take the hour and a half drive up to Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Anyway, just thought it'd be cool to join this community and wanted to say hello!!

Hey everyone! My name is Brenda, and I'm new in this community. I'm a sophomore at Albertson College (in Idaho), and I am majoring in psychology, minoring in sociology. I just thought I'd stop by and see what's up here. I see that people don't post much...

Anyway, my school has less than 1,000 people, and I am in the smallest dorm on campus (maximum occupancy is about 50, and it's about 70% full right now) - last year I lived in the "big" freshman dorm, which has about 150 people in it.

So I just had my first experience hearing neighbors having sex. Good God. First I interrupted...well, something, to get some alcohol out of her fridge (mine was taken by my roommate who moved out for a while ago, because it was actually hers), and it took her forever to get to the door, and half an hour later I could hear them through the wall. I have never had this happen before. Talk about awkward...but funny. Do any of you have stories about this kind of thing?

What do you consider an essential college item? If you list more than one item, please list in order of importance. :D

Anyone know anything about double majoring?

I was considering also majoring in one of my minors in addition to getting an ASP degree. Would I need another 120 credits or so for that 2nd major or could elective credits count for both majors?

Ah yes, for the 2nd Fall in a row, my PC became infected with a worm because some INCOMPETENT NEWB brought an infected machine onto the LAN.

Seriously, people need to learn how to use firewalls and antivirus software.
