Pop-Culture Lessons for Deprived Intellectuals


By

In keeping with the theme of Brown’s community being incredibly varied, quirky, and unique, one of my best friends that I’ve made this past year, Sofia, has a tendency to make jokes about topics HIGHLY disparate from the normal college-aged American millennial lingo (cue one of her infamous supply and...

Perkins, A Place of Few Perks


By

Here at Brown, we determine housing through — if you’re not familiar with it — a blood-sucking, battle-to-the-death type lottery, which any campus tour will define as super “fun,” “random,” and something that “always works out!”  I unfortunately fell prey to this tricky rhetoric and genuinely believed that a fairy-tale housing selection...

Always A Text Away!


By

Staying in contact with family and friends is an objectively good thing.  It’s nice to know a bit about what shenanigans your family is engaging in while trying to subsist without your lovely presence, and to receive advice on why you NEED to binge-watch Westworld right now, c/o your friend...

How to Win Free Time and Influence Your Life


By

I’m awaiting Spring Break with bated breath.  My daydreams have powered me through many holed up nights in the 3rd floor stacks of the Rock, giving me the extra juice to reread my notes for the 5th time, and retain absolutely no additional information. (It’s quantity not quality that counts, people). But... Read More


Bread: Can Live With It, Can’t Live Without It


By

My sister recently discovered that she has a suspected gluten intolerance, so, in a gesture of altruistic solidarity (and more realistically selfish self-protection), I have decided to (attempt to) go (at least partially) gluten-free.  And let me tell you, it is EVERY bit as hard as your classic soul-cycle enthusiast...

A Letter to Foolish Bears


By

Dearest classmates, First semester of freshman year is a semester meant for exploring, trying out new clubs and classes, and getting a sense for how college is going to be (I hear freshman fall is JUST like senior fall!!)  For the most part, we haven’t pushed ourselves too far.  We... Read More


Cool* Kids


By

I am from the Mid-Atlantic state of Maryland, where the weather cannot seem to pick a season for more than a couple of days at a time.  This results in me having a fair sense of what both sweltering and freezing temperatures are like. I’m incredibly well-adapted, what can I say?... Read More


Are YOU the Horrible Roommate?


By

Rarely do people fall into the temperate middle ground of being purely cordial and friendly with their roommate.  You usually either hear about someone having miraculously been matched up with their absolute soul mate, or the roommate pairing from HELL. The soulmate roomies become inseparable: eating all meals together, recapping... Read More


Partying is Siiiiiiiiick!


By

As a leeeeetle baby freshman, I often find myself at the quintessential dorm party, sports house, or rented-out club that seem to be the staples of the first year experience.  For reference, the latter two venues both consist of FAR too many people packed into FAR too small a space (potential...

Let’s Go Streaking!


By

I’m undoubtedly just as much of a millennial as most people on Brown’s campus. I refer to being responsible as “adulting,” I take frequent selfies, and I engage in the occasional 12 hour binge-watch… But my current state of mental confusion as to what the HELL the obsession with Snapstreaks is...
