    Some upperclassmen males will show you attention. And you will like the attention. But stay away from them.

    No they’re not interested in you. No, they will not “cuff” you. And no, you’re not the only one they’re talking to. They see you as easy, naive prey.

    Don’t be the girl they smash and then laugh about to the homies.

    It doesn’t take much to build a bad reputation in college. And it WILL follow you. #StayWoke

    Don’t get pregnant ! Don’t leave your drinks around at parties ! Lock your room door at all times, even if your just going to the bathroom

    I’m surprised you all didn’t have don’t sleep around on the list. I’ve seen girls fall into that trap too many times thinking nobody will know.

    My last pay check
    was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been
    averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t
    believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do, http://www.Pro67.cℴℳ
