Cafe Reviews, Part Three

It may be the weekend, but finals are still here, and Butler is still crowded. For today’s cafe reviews, we give you walkable options: one of which is calm, one of which is not, and one of which is comfortable for Fairy People. Guess which is which.  Starbucks 114th: Apparently four blocks makes all the […]

Actual Wisdom: Herbert Sloan

Tonight’s Actual Wisdom offers sage advice on the relative values of cheeses, more weird clubs professors are part of, and the sinister side of artichokes. 1. Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer. I exist to help undergraduates acquire a credential that this society seems to value. 2. Your claim to fame (what makes […]

Cafe Reviews, Part Two

In our never-ending effort to steer clear of traditional study spaces, we bring you our next installment of Cafe Reviews. This time, when we say off campus we actually mean off campus (except for the one that’s three blocks away). And brace yourself: two of these places don’t have internet, which will mean you’d only […]

To Orgo Or To Breakfast?

Here in the darkness of finals, not one, but two time-honored procrastinatory activities are available for you tonight. You can either catch Orgo Night for politically incorrect jokes in Butler, or nourish your all-nighter at Barnard’s Midnight Breakfast — the theme this year is Electric Breakfast, which means that you have to do the electric […]

Overseen: Notes That Are More Aggressive Than Passive

We all hate Butler campers — and we all are Butler campers. One brave bitch going crazy, though, has had enough with the vicious cycle and the abandoned backpacks. Don’t be scared by the latent rage present, though; the heart at the end means that they really do like you, don’t worry, and they’re not […]

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Night

Update: Deantini just gets cuter and cuter. A tipster reported that along with mini candy canes, he’s sharing some amazingly dorky classic comments. Ex: “We have a class called Lit Hum??? *chuckles at own joke*” and “I don’t have *anything* figured out!” Keep chuckling, good sir. We know that your 10th hour in Butler seems to […]
