Read this if you're sick of your roommate: Making friends on campus

Bridgette Simpson, Satire Co-Editor

Making friends is something that college students are almost always worried about when they show up as first-years. It’s scary to leave home and come to a place where you know only a couple of people if you’re lucky (unless you’re from Westchester, Greenwich or Northern Jersey— then you kno...

Why I write articles instead of making podcasts

Max Bean, Contributing Writer

September 23, 2020

Since the majority of University students don’t have much to do except eat and do homework during the day, many have begun podcasting to entertain themselves. These brave, fashionable, hip “podcasters” entertain us by providing opinions on mundane topics that have a severe lack of likeability and ...

A recent University poll showed that quarantine has left many students feeling out of shape.

Fashion talk with The Bean

Max Bean, Contributing Writer

September 16, 2020

With all of this talk of “COVID-19” and constant reminders that “IF UNABLE TO SOCIAL DISTANCE, PREPARE TO MASK,” I believe it’s time to talk about a pressing issue that hasn’t really been explored in any of the news or entertainment I have been watching.  In all of the updates and school news that h...

Changes in frat culture

Bridgette Simpson, Satire Co-Editor

September 16, 2020

The word “college” reminds me of quite a few things, but some that come to mind almost immediately (besides academics, of course) are “parties” and “frats.” I don’t think it would be a false generalization to say that such events are vital to most people’s college experience, especially ...

After much deliberation and wasted liquid cheese, the Flying Bison will begin serving late-night snacks to any first-year with a pulse. Because of University social distancing guidelines, the Flyson is only allowing a small number of students in the parking lot at a time. Now that students are socially...

The fourth week is ending. Where are we with social distancing?

Max Bean, Contributing Writer

September 9, 2020

At the end of this fourth week, it is clear that some things have been solidified within the University’s student body. Social distancing is at an all-time high.
