Step aside Yik Yak, there’s a new hottie in the villa… Fizz made its debut on campus a couple of weeks ago when they dispatched their ambassadors to give out merch and honey-glazed donuts to advertise the new app that resembles its predecessor, Yik Yak, in its anonymous posting and geographic feed filtering.

Next up: one of the biggest topics of discussion on campus right now is… drum rolls please… registration season! This anxiety-inducing process is upon us now, and everyone is freaking out about making decisions about their future
Ending on a more positive note: these are your reminders to get out there, touch some grass, and appreciate life. 🙂
