The Freshman 15: The do's and don'ts of college life 

We get it: You've just paid for those new friends in your fraternity and now you have to decide, as a group of relative strangers, what music to listen to. You'll be inclined to pick the most nonoffensive, middle-of-the-road tunes to appeal to unfamiliar acquaintances, so Black-Eyed Peas, Jack Johnson or, heaven forbid, Maroon 5 may seem like no-brainers. Don't do it. Bland music is bad for you. The only thing worse than going to a Dave Matthews Band concert is going to a Dave Matthews Cover Band concert. What you’re listening to now will be the backdrop to some of your craziest memories, so experiment with your musical choices. Listen to GSU's radio station, Album 88, at 88.5 FM (WRAS), and Tech's WREK (91.1 FM), and read local blogs like PurgeATL and Greedmont Park to stay up to date on new music. But there's no excuse for listening to Maroon 5. Even Ke$ha has more integrity than Adam Levine.
