Happy Monday! Nothing to complain about today, so let’s get started on today’s college current events roundup.

  • REJECTED FREEDOM TOWERS: People are preparing to gather in NYC tomorrow at the newly opened 9/11 Museum. In honor of that, Inhabitat found these 7 rejected designs for the new World Trade Center site. Some are pretty cool, others are a little wonky. I don’t get architects sometimes.
  • iPHONE IS OUR ONLY HOPE: Apple is planning to release their new iPhone 5 in stores this week, and estimated sales show how mass consumerism is both the US’s only hope and our doom. Wall Street Journal reports that ” the iPhone 5 sales could boost GDP by $3.2 billion, or $12.8 billion at an annual rate.” While you’re at it, you can read this report on how iPhone came to be the smartphone to own.
  • ELECTION DAY IS NEAR: We’re officially 57 days away from the 2012 presidential election. In 57 days, we’ll be free of all the political Facebook statuses everyone has been complaining about, woo! Though not really. Anyways, take a look at this article to see what’s in store for Romney and Obama the next 2 months.
  • FACEBOOK’S GEEKY PARADISE: The great thing about working for a big tech company is the design that encourages fun and creativity. You’ve heard about Google’s headquarters, right? Or Pixars? Well, take a tour of Facebook’s geeky paradise.
  • BROKEN HEARTS ALL AROUND: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got hitched in secret while in South Carolina. Tissues all around…
