This Week’s 5 Trends
By Lilly Devine
Apple released its eighth generation of iPhone on September 19th – the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Why another iPhone you ask? I mean, since it feels like the iPhone 5s just came out not too long ago, why not spend an extra $300 on the new one? There are different features, I may add, including the size difference everyone is talking about. The iPhone 5s is a whopping 4” while the iPhone 6 is 4.7” and the iPhone 6 Plus is 5.5”. Other features include the iPhone being slimmer, having a better camera quality and a “better” battery (we’ll believe it when we see it). If you do decide to trade in your old iPhone for the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, go to an Apple location because they will give you more money towards the iPhone then your cell phone carrier will.
The weather is getting cooler and school is back in session, so you know fall has arrived. But, it’s not fall without every food you see being pumpkin flavored. Pumpkin spice lattes, donuts, bagels and even soup has taking over the BSU campus. Whether it be a $15 Pumpkin Spice Latte from the Starbucks in Maxwell Library or a cup of soup from Bear’s Den, you can never get away from the flavor of the season so it’s only ethical to grab a PSL on your way to class.
As school is starting to get in the swing of things, clubs and extracurricular activities are under way. Based on the involvement fair last week, more and more students are joining clubs of their interest and finding a way to get involved on campus. Over the past few years, clubs have come and go, but this year there are too many to keep track of. From the Anime Club to the Public Relations Student Society of America and back to Kappa Delta Phi, how can you not get involved? Go to the Involvement Network at bridgew.collegiatelink.net to see what you can join.
When you hear the word fall, football is the next word to come out. Whether you are a fan or not, you just can’t escape it. It will be brought up in every conversation and potentially mentioned by your teacher on a Monday morning. As the Patriots are only 2-1, the season is still young. If you are not a Patriots fan, then I advise you to acknowledge that you’re on New England turf. If you live on campus and cannot get the Pats game in your dorm, there are many places around BSU that show the game. Emma’s, Barrett’s Ale House, Bogarts and many other locations show the Sunday games all day. And no, you do not have to be 21 to sit and watch the game. Rank your tab up with Shirley Temples.
If you’re on Twitter and need to laugh (and want to be slightly uncomfortable), then go follow @BSUKissCam. This Twitter page is run by BSU students, where they post pictures of themselves photo bombing others that are making out. Gross, I know. But, there are some funny ones and I’m not going to lie, I think I saw a few classmates on there (I mean their faces were buried in someone else’s, but I swear it was my Bio partner). Check it out and maybe you’ll see yourself on there soon enough.
