The Best Sport Ever

By Aubrey McDonough
October 29, 2014 - 3:21pm

About seven months ago, I was sitting in a freshman lounge doing reading for my religion class (read: obsessively stalking this girl from high school on Facebook), when my friend turned to me and said something that changed my life: “You should try out for frisbee.” Okay, you’re probably laughing. I’m even chuckling to myself as I write this. Either that, or you’re incredibly skeptical, or you’re thinking I’m just being dramatic. And I might be. Maybe I wouldn’t label that moment as one of the most drastic happenings in my entire life, but I stand by the fact that it made me realize something pretty cool I hadn’t known before.   READ MORE

Did you know there are new classes at Brown that combine classroom study with real world travel experience? I didn’t until my dad pointed out a flyer for an art history class that involves a fully funded, one-week trip to Europe in June. Sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. GELT is a new program Brown is offering that allows students to visit the culture and setting they’ve been studying to meet with natives of that specific country. Due to the high expenses of running such a program, each GELT class is capped at twelve students. Students interested have to go through a competitive application process before they are able to register for the class. This application process ensures that the students who will benefit most from the class are able to...

What's Going On at the RISD Museum?

The RISD Museum is truly a great resource for us Brown students. Not only is it a mere three-minute walk from the Main Green, but it’s also free with a student ID. The RISD boasts an impressive collection that includes Monet, Cezanne, Warhol, Van Gogh… the list really goes on and on. While all of these artists are part of the permanent collection, the temporary fall exhibit has just opened up featuring works not normally seen at the museum.   READ MORE

Battle Hymn of the Wise Fools

The sophomore slump is nothing new. It’s talked about, dreaded, and avoided like the Ratty whenever it makes fish. The sophomore slump hits when you no longer have the gusto to make new friends, do any school work, and every attempt to go to the gym ends in a 3 hour long nap. I don’t really believe in this said slump. But then again I’ve been a sophomore for, like what, 2 weeks? READ MORE

Why Autumn is Undeniably the Best Season

By Devon Nir

I’ll admit it—I had my doubts about the fall.   Growing up, I was always a big advocate for winter. I believed that surely between snowfall, hot chocolate, and warm fireplaces, winter was the undisputed champion when it came to the four seasons. Sure, I would concede, summer had its perks: the beach, the free time, and the barbecues. But those delights were nothing compared to the majestic joy of the holiday season and the thrill of making a perfect snow angel.   READ MORE

How To: Grocery Shopping for Smart Collegiates

It turns out that being completely off meal plan is a scary reality to face. It means no more late night trips to Jo’s, no take-out from the Ratty to power you through a difficult midterm paper, and no more grabbing muffins from the Blue Room before a morning class. However, while being off meal plan means you can no longer get a spicy with and a side of mozzarella sticks any time you want, it also means that you can be completely in control of what you’re eating. You no longer have to worry if the Ratty and the Vdub’s dinner options both seem lacking. Instead, you can eat what you want… provided you had enough foresight to stock your fridge with all the necessary ingredients.   READ MORE...

Welcome Back, Brown Town

Well folks, that time of year has come around once more. It feels like just yesterday that we were handing in our final papers and boxing up our belongings, but believe it or not, September is in full swing here at Brown University. The freshman have made their treks through the Van Wickle Gates, seniors have already begun counting down to graduation, and I’ve had my long awaited Jo’s grilled cheese. I guess you could say school is really back in session.   READ MORE
