The University of Maryland’s Health Center has taken STD/STI awareness to the next level.
This advertisement, promoting consciousness about chlamydia, was spotted on the Enclave shuttle by The Diamondback and WMUC’s Sung-Min Kim.
The fictional app used in this ad is based on popular matchmaking app Tinder, which is commonly used by college students.
In the app, profile pictures of various guys/girls (depending on your preference) around your area are displayed. If you like what you see, you swipe right, hence why the ad says “Chlamydia always swipes to the right.”
Here is the rest of the text:
Chlamydia likes everyone, and it’s trending upward on campus. Unprotected oral, anal or vaginal sex can put Terps at risk. Reduce risk with condoms, routine testing & knowing your partners’ STI status. Depending on your behavior, a throat, rectal or urine screening may be necessary.
So as most of my readers know, I recently just finished my undergraduate studies. College gave me four years of crazy, yet humbling, experiences that I’ll keep with me forever. Most importantly, what I obtained from college….was my degree! I worked hard, never slept, and contemplated just becoming a stripper instead for four straight years. Now, I’m in the same position that a lot of college graduates are in around this country. I have a degree, so what now?
This is the most discouraging part so far in my path to success. In concept, I understand that a college degree doesn’t guarantee me a job right away. But doesn’t it feel like it should? It can sometimes make us feel like those sleepless nights, ramen-struggle dinners, and over $20,000 in loans was all for nothing. Well let’s take a second to thank the Universe for two things: my ability to…
A lively crowd gathered in Hoff Theatre Friday night during Stamp’s annual All Niter event where, for forty-minutes, they cajoled as the Knotty Bits sideshow took center stage.
The vaudeville era of sideshow acts was lead by duo Gwyd the Unusual and his quirky partner, Sylver Fyre. Audience members were entertained throughout by their playful banter and double entendre joke deliveries.
Students leaned against the barricades with clear anticipation in their eyes while music pumped through the speakers and the lights dimmed down until the only thing they focused on was the stage. The stage that Joey Bada$$ would run onto within a couple of hours for the inaugural concert, “Attack of the Backpack.”
This past Thursday night, SEE hosted their back to school concert with that famous kid from Bed-Stuy Brooklyn.
Up first were two DJs from New York, Benzi and Esentrik, going by the name of TWRK.
“I’m excited to see the other two performers,” said Dante Cannon, a history major, while waiting in the lobby of Ritchie.
“I’ve never heard of them before and I’d like to check out their music.”
September 23, 2014 is when one of the fall semester’s most anticipated events, “Attack of the Backpack,” arrived at UMD for a night of head nodding, crowd surfing and good vibes being spread.
Three acts performed, starting with TWRK, a trap-electronic group, disbursing jolts of adrenaline throughout the audience, to keep them hyped for the other acts. Then came Henry Fong, an EDM spectacle. However, during Fong’s set, me and my fellow Pulsefeedz colleague, Naomi Harris, had the opportunity to interview the headlining act of the night, Joey Bada$$.
Kevin McHale and Amber Riley are joining forces to host a brand new weekly radio show.
#McRiley, the name it will be affectionately known as, will give the two entertainers a chance to dish their takes on the latest news and trends which everyone is talking about.
On Friday night’s debut episode, the duo discussed the inside scoop of why Kendrick Lamar lost to Macklemore during February’s Grammy Awards, the rise of female musicians and the fall of R&B as well as how influential music lyrics can be to kids.
The show will air Friday nights uncensored at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET on DASH Radio, a brand new music app founded by DJ Skee. The app contains channels which are categorized by genre. #McRiley will air on DASH Radio’s pop channel, Main Stage.
This will not be the duo’s first stint on the radio together. Back in 2011, McHale and Riley co-hosted American Top 40, subbing for Ryan Seacrest.
