If you're in a fraternity, or you just happen to find yourself visiting a certain frat every weekend, then here is some good news: Your party lifestyle could be just the ticket to dance your way to a smokin' hot body!

If you spend your nights indulging in frequent partying, there are some hidden benefits to your nocturnal activities. We would never joke about this, and just to prove we're serious, we'll walk you through the health benefits of your typical party. Before your guests even arrive, you're going to have to rearrange the furniture to squeeze 'em all in. Give this activity an hour, and you'll burn 450 calories. If you feel like relaxing after this afternoon of rearranging, and decide to play ping pong for an hour, you'll burn 280 more calories. And if you love beer, you'll be happy to know that it is more nutritious than other alcoholic choices. Your favorite wheat-y beverage is rich in Vitamin B6, a nutrient that prevents the buildup of the heart-harmful amino acid, homocysteine. Beer also contains nine-percent of your daily phosphorus, seven-percent of your riboflavin and five-percent of your niacin. Now that you know your beer can almost substitute for a multi-vitamin, you're probably feeling even more ready to party. Spend one hour grooving and sweating on the dance floor and you'll discard 405 calories effortlessly. You could also join in a game of flip cup or beer pong, both of which will improve hand-eye coordination. Plus, the 30 to 50 calories you'll burn playing these games is better than nothing! After your party-packed night, you'll probably be ready to tuck in for eight hours, which is great, since you'll shed 460 calories just sleeping quietly. Or, if you've got a guest in your bed, the average fool-around session burns between 50 and 100 calories, and having an orgasm will burn about 20 more...A tough life, we know, but someone's gotta do it.More »

If you're in college or headed that way, there's no doubt that you've heard horror stories about the freshman 15. Luckily, you don't have to go on a crazy diet to avoid weight gain. Instead, follow our rules for a yummy, but healthy, college diet.
Transcript: You've heard horror stories about gaining weight when you go to college. Is the "freshman fifteen" real?...
You've heard horror stories about gaining weight when you go to college. Is the "freshman fifteen" real? Because so many students gain weight rapidly during their first year of college, the phenomenon has been given a name - the "freshman fifteen" - which refers to the number of pounds these students gain during their freshman year. However, new studies show that the freshman fifteen is really more like the freshman eight. Most students tend to gain this eight or so pounds within the first three semesters of college. But eight pounds is still an unhealthy amount to gain in a single year, and students who are overweight in college are more likely to be overweight as adults. Also, these individuals are at greater risk to develop type-2 diabetes. So why is unhealthy weight gain such a frequent phenomenon among younger college students? Some of the factors are obvious, such as a huge variety of food choices in dining halls, and a lack of parental influence over which foods are consumed. Students also eat on a less regular schedule, and are more likely to "dine and dash," or to graze on unhealthy snacks stowed in the dorm. For example, the vast majority of college freshman who were active in high school sports don't compete at the college level. The late night studying and partying contribute as well, both because additional meals and snacks are consumed, and because the body's metabolism slows when it doesn't get sufficient rest. Add in the fact that alcohol consumption may double the number of calories a student consumes daily, it's not surprising that most collegiates gain weight. it's not surprising that most collegiates gain weight. It is possible to sidestep the freshman fifteen, however. The first step to doing so is being aware of why it happens and taking steps to avoid the weight gain.More »

Don't deny it: Your college diet contains more pizza and beer than fruits and water. And you wonder where that weight gain comes from! Don't worry - you can still enjoy college food favorites without sacrificing your figure.

You know you shouldn't binge on pizza-but did you know that a so-called "healthy" trip to the salad bar could still be packing over 1,000 calories? It's hard enough to eat healthy on campus, but when bad foods masquerade as good ones, it can make it hard for even the most dedicated dieter to eat smart. Here are some common college food traps to avoid. Let's look at the salad bar: If you include a little breaded chicken, five ounces will add 290 calories to your plate. Throw on tasty toppers like 2 tablespoons of bacon, _ cup of cheese, and _ cup of croutons and you've got another 250 calories. Top it all off with a ladle of creamy ranch dressing, and guess what? You're dressing has over 380 calories, as many as in a medium order of fries at McDonalds! You can keep that same salad to a mere 500 calories by choosing grilled chicken and limiting yourself to just one or two satisfying extras, like nuts and goat cheese. Finish up with an olive oil vinaigrette-its 90 calories of healthy omega-3 fats will keep you full longer. Ramen noodles, which are ubiquitous on most college campuses, are another common food trap. Skip the Ramen, which pack on 370 calories, and choose one can of chicken noodle soup instead, which has just 120 calories. Ordering take-out tonight? If you're getting Chinese, beware the 880 calories in one small order of orange chicken with a cup of rice! Go lighter with something like mushroom chicken and you can save yourself 400 calories. Or, if pizza is on the menu, skip the regular crust, pepperoni pizza. Instead, choose thin-crust veggie pizza and you can also have a side salad, two chocolate chip cookies and a light beer for the same calorie count! It's easy to eat the foods you like and maintain your pre-freshman figure, you just need to be smart about it.More »

The first time you have sex is special. Or else, maybe, its awful. But no matter how good or bad that first experience is, losing one's virginity is a milestone in most people's lives. We asked you when you lost your virginity. Among the people who took our survey, 16% lost their virginity before high school, 40% had lost their virginity by age 16, just 1 person in 3 went to college still a virgin, and less than 10% were still virgins at age 21. There were some interesting differences between when men and women lost their virginity. Two thirds of the people who lost their virginity at age 14 or younger were girls. By age 16, 37% of the boys and 46% of the girls had lost their virginity. Over 60% of the boys who were virgins when they turned 17 had sex before the end of high school. However, fewer than 20% of the 17 year old female virgins had sex before college. Even so, by the time they reached their 21st birthday, men were not much more likely to have had sex than women.

Millions of students on college campuses experience date rape, but this form of sexual assault is as confusing as it is frightening. What does it really entail, and how do you know if you're a victim of rape? Here's help.

While it's difficult to aggregate precise numbers due to often unreported incidences of rape, US law enforcement, along with national rape crisis centers, say that 10 to 25% of all women will experience rape in their lifetime in the USA. Date rape, or acquaintance rape, refers to nonconsensual sexual activity between two people who already know one another. Rape occurs when someone is forced to perform a sexual act of any kind. When the victim knows her rapist - as a casual acquaintance, a friend, or even a boyfriend - it can also be called date rape. Although women are the most frequent victims of date rape, men, too, can suffer from this crime. Although date rape can occur between sober people, alcohol is almost always involved. While frequently date rape occurs when a victim is drunk, often a victim's beverage will be spiked with an odorless, colorless "date rape" drug. The most common date rape drugs include rohypnol, or "roofies," gamma-hydroxybutyrate, or GHB, and ketamine. These drugs may limit memory, and cause unconsciousness or feelings of immobility, making a sexual crime easier to carry out. If you've been the victim of date rape, you're not alone, and not without help. Before you change clothes or wash up, contact your local rape crisis center, or your college's health center for guidance.More »

College is a time of new experiences and identity formation. It's also a time when coming out as gay or lesbian may feel natural. If you're wondering what it'll be like coming out as a homosexual watch this to learn more.

Whether you've always known you were gay or just realized it recently, for many people, college is the perfect time to come out. For lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, the LGBT community, coming out is a process of understanding, accepting, and sharing their identity. College can be an ideal place to come out, as your new community is often larger and more diverse than the one you left at home. Still, coming out is not always easy. The first step is for you to acknowledge your own sexual identity. The next step is to accept your sexual identity, and embrace who you are. Most colleges have LGBT clubs, communities and outreach programs, which can offer counseling and support during your journey. Once you're ready to tell others about your sexual orientation, remember that you do not have to share with everyone at once. Some individuals might choose only to tell members of the LGBT community at first. This way, they can gain insight and advice from people who have already gone through the experience of coming out.Coming out may elicit varied responses from different people in your life, so be prepared for both positive and negative reactions. During trying moments, remember, it took you time to come to terms with your own sexual orientation; your friends and family may need some time, too. Finally, remember that coming out is a process, and not something that you have to do alone.More »

Everyone experiences a broken heart at some point, but for some people, a break up can be the cause of deep depression. In this video, we'll look at how ending relationships can effect college students, and how to cope if your own heart is broken.

"Breaking up is hard to do," and you didn't need a song to tell you that. If you are afraid of the emotional consequences of ending your current relationship, it may not be as difficult as you think. According to a recent study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, college students underestimate their ability to survive heartache. But, if you're not among those who are feeling better than expected, here are some tips on how to cope with the end of a relationship'. It's vital to remember that the relationship, not your life, has ended. The pain of breaking up will pass with time. You will get over the pain. Want proof? Check out this study, which showed that within one year of a college breakup, 95-percent of students reported feeling "happy" and "recovered." While you're working through the heartache of your break-up, try to focus on parts of your life which have nothing to do with your ex. Take weekend trips with friends, join a new club, or even ask a pal to set you up. Be cautious not to turn to drugs, alcohol or promiscuous sex as a replacement for your relationship. The temporary relief that these things may provide are rarely worth the consequences. But, if you find yourself overindulging these activities, or if you've noticed a dip in your grades, withdrawal from social situations, or obsessive thoughts about your ex, it may be time to seek out some help. Think about talking to a close friend, or visiting your school's health center to make an appointment for counseling, a service that most colleges offer for free. It can help to talk openly, and to explore possible changes in your lifestyle that may make it easier for you to get through this time; intact and stronger than ever.More »

Even the most independent of students may get homesick at some point. And for some, homesickness can be the most notable part of freshman year of college. Here, how to handle this common college emotion.

It's normal to feel nostalgic for home occasionally - but for nearly 20-percent of first-year college students, homesickness can be a more constant, debilitating condition. Many students who experience homesickness feel too embarrassed to discuss their feelings. But homesickness is nothing new--it's a defining characteristic of the human condition as exhibited in Homer's epic, "The Odyssey," and the Book of Exodus in the Old Testament. There are two basic types of adult homesickness commonly experienced by college freshmen. The more familiar type involves missing the people, area, and lifestyle of one's previous existence. The less common form of homesickness occurs among students who may not particularly miss home, but who are so overwhelmed by college that they want to return to someplace more familiar. Whichever type is affecting you, it can be hard to make new social connections or to generally feel "happy" when you're homesick. One way to help alleviate feelings of homesickness is to set up a regular schedule for talking with your family and friends from home. Or, even better, you can make arrangements for a friend or family member to come visit you at school. It can also help to immerse and integrate yourself into your new environment. You might try joining an intra-mural sports team or a club that you are interested in. Maybe attend a meet-and-greet on campus. However, if homesickness is still plaguing you at the end of your first semester, it might be helpful to seek out some group or individual counseling at the student health center.More »

Your college dorm room is likely home to plenty of dirty roommates--including some you don't even know about. In this video, we'll dig into the dirt and bacteria in your dorm, and discuss the health risks of forgoing basic hygiene.

If you're like most college students, you have a roomate-but we bet you didn't know that you actually share your room with countless others. It's true: That dorm room you call home is also home to bacteria, viruses, mold, dust, mites, and more. Take, for example, your shared sink and shower area, both of which have more than 100,000 forms of bacteria living in them-and that's in the bathrooms that are cleaned weekly, Health magazine attests! Meanwhile, the same magazine found that water fountains in the hallway are home to 2.7 million forms of bacteria on the spigot alone. Unfortunately, your room isn't much better, as both your mattress and carpet host dust mites and possibly even bed bugs, both of which can cause rashes. And if you live in an older dorm, your heating system has probably been spreading the same dust and mold throughout your building for years. Now that we've given you the bad news, here's the good: You can avoid most of these germs with some simple know-how. For starters, wash your hands before every meal, and do so habitually. Why? For one thing, the University of Wisconsin found that one-third of college-aged men, and one-fifth of college-aged women don't, which is pretty appalling when you consider that 80% of all infections are spread via hand contact! In the bathroom, always wear flip-flops and never set your toothbrush on the sink when you're not using it. You can eliminate 99.9 percent of dust mites by dedicating yourself to vacuuming your carpet and stripped-down bed every other week. These are simple steps, but they'll save you a lot of time that might otherwise have been spent at the health center during your college career!More »

Hazing may be a standard part of fraternity or sorority life, but it can also lead to psychological stress or even death. In this video, we'll consider whether inductions into frat life are harmless fun or a much more serious situation.
Transcript: Hazing is illegal in 44 states, but it's still happening every day to new members of fraternities, sororities,...
Hazing is illegal in 44 states, but it's still happening every day to new members of fraternities, sororities, and other social groups. The term "hazing" generally refers to any ritualistic activity that humiliates, degrades, or inflicts harm on a person before they can be accepted into a social group. The most common forms of hazing include: requiring people to consume excessive amounts of alcohol or to participate in drinking games, forcing someone to sing, wear strange clothing, or perform other embarrassing acts in public, depriving someone of sleep for an extended period of time, abusing someone emotionally or calling them hurtful names, or compelling someone to engage in, or watch, sexual acts with other group members. Even if someone willingly agrees to participate in these hazing activities, the practice is still illegal, and with good reason: in every year since 1970 there has been at least one hazing-related death on a college campus. Despite this, a whopping 74-percent of athletic team members and 74 -percent of fraternity and sorority members admitted to being hazed this year. And the habit isn't limited to these "usual" groups - among students who participated in academic clubs, 28% said that they had endured some kind of hazing; in performing arts organizations, 56% reported hazing practices. If you feel pressure to participate in a hazing activity, realize first that it's not OK-or legal-for a group to ask this of you. Ideally, you should report hazing to school authorities or to the head of the organization requiring the activity, but fear of exclusion or resentment may prevent you from doing so. Whether you report the hazing or not, you should still ask yourself whether you really want to join a group that is willing to debase you - and even risk your safety. Remember that there are many social activities on every college campus that welcome new members with open arms-not dangerous games.More »

From frat parties to midterms, college can be totally anxiety inducing. Luckily, we've found seven simple tips to help with stress management. Watch 'em and never sweat under pressure again!

Stress is a part of life; these tips can bring some relief. We all have stress in our lives, whether it's from long hours at work, the challenge of raising a family or day-to-day annoyances like traffic. Reducing stress is a good way to increase productivity, stay healthy, and enjoy life more. Here are a few simple ways to get started: One powerful way to prevent stress is to incorporate regular exercise into your daily routine. Walking just 20 minutes a day can change your body chemistry in a way that reduces stress significantly. This is because aerobic exercise causes the body to produce endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that resemble opiates and create a sense of well-being. It's a legal drug: endorphins stand for "endogenous" or internal morphine, which is how the name came about. Making dietary changes can help keep stress levels low. Reducing consumption of stimulants like caffeine and sugar-which can make you more susceptible to stress-helps get your body back into a healthful balance. Sometimes people drink alcohol to relieve stress, but be aware that this can be counter-productive because alcohol is a depressant. Taking a daily multi-vitamin can also help strengthen your body to better cope with stress. Many nutritionists also recommend taking vitamin C and calcium supplements in addition to your daily vitamin. Getting enough oxygen to your body is critical when stress starts to build. If you are feeling anxious, focus on breathing deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth repeatedly. This can also help to slow your heart rate. Also, thinking of pleasing things, like puppies, can take you out of a stressful moment and into a better frame of mind. Learning to control our anxiety through breathing, exercise, and short breaks can be very helpful in reducing stress. With these tips, you can become calmer in the center of the storm.
