7 Easy College Meal Options


Its lunch time! Making your own meals can be a bit overwhelming if you're not comfortable cooking. The following meal ideas can make the challenge easier.

1. Bagel Breakfast. You'll need bagels and flavored cream cheese. Cut your bagels in half and toast  them lightly. Spread your cream cheese over each side while the bagel is still warm. Add a glass of fruit juice and you've got a quick breakfast.

2. Muffin Pancakes. Use a prepared biscuit or muffin mix to make quick pancakes. Follow the instructions on the side of the package. Top them off with syrup and fruit.

3. Mac and Cheese. Pick up a package of mac and cheese that you can make on your own. Add ground beef and tomatoes to make chili mac and cheese. Add tuna and onions, and you've got a simple tuna casserole.

4. Dinner, the European Way. Use a french or Italian baguette as the backdrop for your toppings. Slice the bread into thick slices. Cut your favorite cheese into pieces that will fit over the bread. Warm the two together in the microwave for about forty seconds.

5. Wrap It Up. Fill whole wheat wraps with your favorite veggies, cheese and meat. Top it off with mustard, mayonnaise or salad dressing. A simple meal that's a breeze to make.

6. Good Ol' Soup 'n Sandwich. Make a grilled cheese sandwich with whole wheat bread and cheese slices. Either fry them up in a pan or melt them together in the microwave. Add a bowl of your best soup and you've got a hearty meal.

7. Brownie Sundae Dessert. Keep brownies, chocolate chips and whip cream in your dorm room. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave and warm them into a sauce. Warm up a brownie and cover it with whipped cream. Pour the chocolate sauce over the top and you've got a simple decadent dessert. Enjoy it late at night, while you're watching television and cozied up in your dorm room bedding.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
