Ode to BSU’s In’s and Out’s

Welcome back Bears! I hope everyone had a great break, but now that we’re all back there’s something important we need to discuss. Let me set the scene—it’s a Wednesday night at 9:00 P.M. I just returned to campus, and as I went to park in a silly little Weygand spot, there was nothing. Which is fine, expected and annoying, but fine. Then I checked MBTA, then Shea Durg, then Great Hill…literally nothing. 

I was sent to the depths of Tower Lot to trek through the rain back to my dorm. 

What the flip! Parking at BSU is so not in…this sparked my interest in setting the narrative straight. There are so many ins and outs for BSU that we need to address. Luckily for you, I have just been sitting here tapping my feet excited to share my thoughts about this.

So yeah…parking at BSU is out, but what’s in? 

Campus crushes. While I myself have not had one for a bit, most of my friends do and it is one of the craziest phenomenons I have ever witnessed. Like, I’ve heard tons about the lives of random people I do not know and it all comes down to the internet stalking my friends have done of their campus crushes. Readers, do not judge because I know you have done it too. 

With that being said, another out: stealing seats. Are they assigned? No, but I don’t care. On the first day of classes I always go early so I can scope out the seating and pick my ideal spot. I achieved that for all of my classes, but one of my seats was already taken. I don’t want to be over dramatic, but respectfully, I hope the desk you stole squeaks a lot and the chair is uncomfortable. 

To end on a positive note, my last in is just Bear’s Den. I love Bear’s Den. They have good soup (sometimes, I’m very picky), great breakfast (you have to GrubHub for the greatness), and last but certainly not least, the people who bring it all together. I love the staff at Bear’s Den, especially my queens at the pasta station. I hope they have a great day everyday.

Black Excellence

Welcome to Black History Month! The time of the year where everyone pretends to care about the struggles of Black people just to move on the second March 1 hits (until Juneteenth, that is). Now, I could talk about white people trying to turn the fade into the “Travis Kelce,” (he/him) or Nicki Minaj (she/her) […]

Ode to Maya Hawke

I recently stumbled across my “Ode to Valentine’s Day” from this time last year. Oh boy. I genuinely laughed. No, not because I find myself funny, but because when you learn more about yourself, it makes looking back on your past-self that much more cringeworthy. I wrote in the Ode, “I’m literally the most non-girlfriend […]

Letter to the Editor: Campus Food Insecurity

The following letter was submitted from Dr. Kathy Bailey’s Social Work 508 class and has been lightly edited for clarity. Food insecurity among college students is an issue that flies under the radar, yet a host of students have found themselves not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Although about one in three […]

The Barbz Are Not Alright…

Now there is a lot of context missing, but frankly, I would need this whole page to get into it. So let’s talk about “HISS,” the most recent Megan Thee Stallion (she/her) track. Now, I wouldn’t classify this as a diss track, as it seems to come for a lot of different people in the […]
