Millennials get labeled a lot of things — spoiled, narcissistic, “ruiners of everything” — but that’s not to say that we don’t have some redeeming qualities. Our idealism is good for our personal relationships and careers.



Nowadays, you can pretty much do anything with your cell phone. Pay bills ✔ Book flights ✔ Learn Spanish ✔ Make a Bitmoji (serious business, folks) ✔ You may be able to get a lot done on your phone, but it might actually be making you less productive at work. While we’re talking tech probs, you may want to read up on 372 ways to protect your digital life. Pro tip: “Invest in a smartphone case made from pressed black peppercorns.”



You know how experts are constantly telling you how to achieve work-life balance? Turns out they’re not very good at listening to their own advice. U-M Professor of Psychology David Dunning can believe that since he discovered we are all “confident idiots.” Take it from award-winning author Michelle Goodman— she was a self-help guru who will tell you why you shouldn’t listen to people like her.


The Michigan women’s basketball team is one win from their first WNIT title. The team has had the most successful season in Michigan women’s basketball history. In other Michigan news, U-M has announced its plans for the bicentennial commencement.


If you haven’t heard, millennial pink is the new black.
