Hey guys! My name’s Olivia Dibs and I am a total foodie. The first step to recovery is acceptance, right? I’m so happy to get to bring you the scoop on all the good grub in Syracuse!

Year and Major/Minor: I’m a junior broadcast journalism major with a nutrition minor

Hometown: Queens, NY, about five minutes away from where 50 Cent grew up. THUG LYFE.

Most Embarrassing Moment: I tend to fall on my ass a lot, so I’m kind of past the embarrassment thing.

Movie I Could Watch Over and Over Again: Superbad. I’m a sucker for fat Jonah Hill.

Sup, Jerks! I’m Lauren Levine, and I’ll be covering all things fashion. Before I get ahead of myself, here’s a little bit about me.

Year and Major: I am a sophomore in Whitman School of Management majoring in Retail Management (obviously I love clothes and fashion)!

Hometown: Morristown, New Jersey

Most Embarrassing Moment: Walking into a glass door after I woke up from having anesthesia and becoming unconscious… not one of my finer moments.  Thank god I was already at the hospital.

Biggest Lie I’ve Gotten Away With: Unfortunately I am a terrible liar and when I try to lie I start laughing, so it never really works.

Movie I Could Watch Over and Over Again: This is a tough decision because I literally think I have seen about two thirds of any movie ever made. (Well, the ones worth seeing anyway) but I have to give the typical girl answer and say The Notebook.  Who could blame me? It’s the cutest romance movie ever made which every girl wishes was based on her own life.

For more about me, follow me on twitter @DoubleLss.

Hey Jerks! I’m Jenna Jacobsen, and I’ll be bringing you the best and worst of fashion, starting with the dos and don’ts of what I like to call “Career Fair Fashion.” Before I get blogging, here’s a little bit about me.

Year/Major/Minor: Senior Spanish major and Psychology minor

Hometown: Rochester, Minnesota

My Most (recent) Embarrassing Moment: It occurred while I was at work. (Abercrombie and Fitch) I just happened to be staring at one of the shirtless greeters at the front of the store (isn’t that what they’re there for?) and ever-so-gracefully walked right into a table. My manager saw the whole thing and couldn’t stop laughing.

The Biggest Lie I’ve Gotten Away With: My height is listed on my driver’s license as 5’11”.  I’m in denial that I’m actually 6 feet tall.

Movie I Could Watch Over and Over: I could watch “The Guardian,” starring Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher all day, every day.

For more embarrassing stories regarding shirtless male models and lies about my height, follow me on Twitter at @Jenna_Nicoleee.

Hey foodies! I’m Meredith Mendosa, your personal foodie extraordinaire. I’ll be bringing you the best and the worst cuisines that Syracuse has to offer. I’ll take some pictures of everything I try (nothing will be instagram-ed, I promise) giving you a sense of what to expect from these delicacies. Whether it’s delivered to your door or to your plate, I’ll be breaking the bank, and my belt for the sake of your stomachs, enjoy!

Year and Major:I am a junior Communications Design Major (Not in Newhouse)

Hometown:Hudson, Ohio
My Most Embarrassing Moment: I was so hungover one time, that when my friend brought me watermelon, I started crying from happiness. I’d  say I have an idealistic sense of happiness.

Biggest Lie You’ve Gotten Away With: It’s so good, it’s still going so no comment.
Movie I Could Watch Over and Over: I could probably watch Almost Famous a couple times a day.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter @merfbear. I rarely tweet but when I do, it’s stupid. So listen up!

Sup, Jerks! I’m Shelby Hilt, and I’ll be letting you know where you should -and should not – eat on and off campus. I can’t wait to get started, but let me tell you a little bit about myself first.

Year and Major: I’m a Photography major in VPA and unfortunately in May, I’ll be saying that bittersweet goodbye to Syracuse University.

My most embarrassing moment: It happened just a few weeks ago, while I was at the campus bar, Faegans. Ever see that guy across the room who is just so gorgeous, that your friends push you to go say hello? Yep, that was me, and that was him. He was looking like a 12, in a set of blue scrubs.  I decided ‘why the hell not?’ and went over to him. We hit it off and inside I’m screaming “Holla!” until I made the mistake of asking if he was a nurse… Ladies, if you see a guy in scrubs never assume he is a nurse. You know what happens when you assume!  Because in my case, he was an ER doctor! And two seconds later I was staring at his nice doctorly butt — as it walked away. OOPS!

I dance way more than the average human, just ask my roommates who religiously see me dancing on any and every surface in our house. Who says you need to wait until Friday and Saturday night to get down? I think a Monday morning deserves some Bow Chicka Wow Wow, too. Therefore, I absolutely wouldn’t be able to survive without my ridiculous amount of Pandora stations.

Hope you all enjoy my Foodie section! Feel free to follow me on Twitter @theshilt. Contact me with suggestions, comments or snarky remarks at any time! And as I like to say.. LIVE LIFE!

Hey, Jerks! I’m Sophia Kim, and I’ll be bringing you the latest news in music and concerts! I can’t wait to start posting, but let me tell you a little bit about myself first!
Major/Minor: International Relations/Economics/Global Security Studies
Year: 2014
Hometown: Queens, NY 
Most Embarrassing Moment: When I  broke a window after I took a golf swing under the supervision of my golf coach… He said, “You never cease to surprise me, Sophia Kim.” 
Biggest Lie I’ve Gotten Away With: I have told someone that I don’t speak English so they’d leave me alone. 
A movie you could watch over and over again: The Devil Wears Prada! I love Anne Hathaway and the movie always reminds me of home since it takes place in NYC!
Feel free to follow me on Twitter @skimilks. Contact me with suggestions, comments or any remarks!
Sup dude!? I’m Lakota Sky Gambill, I’m your girl for politics! That’s right, a Native American from bum-fuck Utah will be feeding you the latest, best, daring, and most outspoken blogs for this election season. I’m so stoked, though, before I start railing on the political world, lemme’ tell you a bit where I’m from.
Major and Year: Communication and Rhetorical Studies, Sophomore
Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah (No, I’m not Mormon, let’s not go there.)
Most embarrassing moment: Hm, well one time I was hanging out with a friend and the bands New Medicine and Halestorm drinking a few brewskis. It was after the concert and we we’re casually drinking, laughing, having a good time. When my friend Martika handed me a beer, like a fool I dropped it in front/ on side of their tour bus. Bus of course was pulling up at the time and well….I shot the tire out, pushing their tour date back about three days… Sorry Halestorm!
Biggest Lie I’ve Gotten Away With:  I was in the photography class at my high school as well as an editor for our school newspaper. Both the classes we’re so disorganized to the point where it was annoying, so I convinced both classes that the semester was going to be very hard for each of those two classes and while I was supposed to be in Journalism, I was working hard in the photo room, while supposed to be in photo, I was in Journalism, vice versa (May I remind you that these classes were both morning classes). I asked nicely and explained my story, I asked if they could mark me present though I was working in another room and still be able to give me an A. Well kids, for a whole year I never stepped foot in those classes and maintained an A with doing nothing. I’m bossed up.
Movie I Could Watch Over and Over: ANIMAL HOUSE, no one can rage like they do.
Feel free to follow me on twitter and can read about me ranting about shit @misslakotasky, tweet at me, contact me, ANYTHING you want me to cover about my blog or if you just wanna talk shit and snarky remarks, DO IT UP. We’re all Jerks here.

Major and Year: I am a sophomore and currently undecided (womp) but trying to get into Newhouse to study Magazine Journalism.
Hometown: I come from Scranton, Pennsylvania (yupp, like “The Office”).
Most Embarrassing Moment:  Minutes after getting my wisdom teeth out, I told my twin sister to grow a pair of balls….in front of my mom…. SMOOTH.
Movie I Could Watch Over and Over Again: I am a huge romantic comedy buff so I could watch “When Harry Met Sally” over and over again and STILL laugh at the cheesy jokes.

Major and Year: I’m a Fine Art Photography and Visual Culture student in the Visual and Performing Arts school, finishing my senior year.

Most Embarrassing Moment: I’ve got no embarrassing moments to recount unless you find me in person, then maybe we can share a reuben.
Biggest Lie I’ve Gotten Away With: I can not tell a lie, and sometimes I’m too honest.

Check out my personal blog, , it’s got some of the sources of my inspiration and a whole mix of things worthy for the Internet. Connect with me if you’ve got suggestions or if you just want to share that reuben.
