A Day in the Bean


BY ERIN POWERS // MAY 8, 2012 //  Yes, the title of my blog may be “Night in the Bean,” but summer is upon us and for many college students that can only mean one thing: day drinking. Sure, Boston at night is always a good time, but who doesn’t like an ice cold Harpoon […]

The 90s Again, One Meme at a Time


BY SEBASTIAN HUMBERT // MAY 4, 2012 // While some college students are enjoying the start of finals, others have given up, relying on thick pillows, the fetal position and memories of better (elementary school) days.
