  • Kate Hirsch the Famous Tennis Player

    By Kate Hirsch

    When Kate Hirsch was a first-year, she decided it would be a good idea to lie to everyone she met and tell people she was a famous tennis player. Later, she wrote a column about it and revealed to the world her true self—a queer, mediocre athlete who took tennis lessons a couple of times a week in eighth grade. This semester, she’s back, she’s definitely (not) better than ever, and she’s ready to take on the column world one piece at a time. Stay tuned for a story of love, loss, resistance, resilience, and finding your #trueself. It’s going to be a wild ride. Read the Column


  • Tiger Print Journal

    By Sasha Hulkower

    I’ve been journaling with diligent inconsistency since the 4th grade, when I wrote in my pink and gold tiger-print notebook, “Mommy said if I want to be a writer, I should start keeping a diary.” I then forgot to follow up with a second entry for roughly four months. I’d like to think that I’ve grown in the past decade, so over the course of this semester, I’ll be revisiting all of the partially-filled, tear-stained notebooks that chronicle the last ten years of my life as I think about the personal growth I’ve experienced, and continue to experience, every day.

  • Wear & Tear

    By Georgia Oldham

    Each illustrated installment of “Wear & Tear” will be a little different. The column will dare to go deep inside the modern wardrobe and the daily trials and tribulations that come with it. Installments will feature stylin’ stories about everything, from the 8th-grade-formal dress you did bring to college, to your dad’s 1980s ski clothes (neon, of course) that you tried to wear to your 8:00 a.m. last week.
