I Shouldn’t Be Alive: 48 Hours In Wien

Senior Staff Writer and hobbyist hermit Anna Hotter spends 48 hours inside her Wien single. Against all odds, she lives to tell you about it. Last weekend I got pretty sick. I couldn’t talk, move, eat, or do any of my reading, of course. But because I live in a Wien single, aka Prezbo’s walk-in closet, […]

Tonight’s Valentine’s Day Mixer, hosted by CU Admirers, actually advertises itself as “Wien’s first party,” so that’s not us trying to be funny.
