College ACB, or ‘ACB,’ was born out of the ashes of its predecessor, Juicy Campus. Everybody knows Juicy Campus was better. For one, its interface was more attractive; its pink and blue graphics evoked images of the sort of sex-segregated bathrooms on whose walls gossip used to be scrawled before the Internet allowed the young
The other day, a friend walked into my room to find me playing my Xbox 360, to which she asked, “What is this? World of Warcraft?” I was annoyed, not because I was playing a totally different genre of game than World of Warcraft, or because you can’t even play that particular game on Xbox.
I like to live my life post-ironically by the mantra “Don’t just talk about it, be about it.” Over the past few years, the nationwide trend of eating organic and using buzzwords like ‘sustainable’ and ‘local’ has proliferated to the point of becoming omnipresent. Lots of people talk about it, but not everyone is about
Jumbos, lend me your pants—or just stash them in the bushes next to West. On Monday, March 14, 2011, the Tufts Daily reported that Tufts University President Larry Bacow had made the decision to discontinue the school’s sanctioning of NQR (what the administration calls Nighttime Quad Reception, but what everyone who’s anyone calls Naked Quad
Alexander Vilenkin has a disconcerting tendency to smile when he talks about the end of our universe. I’m careful to say our universe because according to Vilenkin, the Director of Tufts’ Institute of Cosmology, what most people think of as the universe is really only a drop in the ocean, or more precisely, a quantum
The other day, someone I don’t know very well walked into my room, immediately noticed the giant spice rack on my desk, and asked me if I collect spices. My initial thought was “That’s a bizarre question, what kind of weirdo just collects spices?” I then turned toward my 36, alphabetically arranged, neatly labeled, spice-filled
This past New Year’s Eve, I was at my best friend Molly’s house sitting around eating pizza. Molly and I have been friends since third grade; we attended the same elementary school in Brooklyn. As we prepared for 2011, it was difficult to imagine that we’d be graduating from college this May. Overwhelmed by this
Since the selection of a new Tufts President on November 30, Tufts students have been flooding Google with the name Anthony Monaco. Some wanted to see if his hailing from Oxford meant he would have a British accent, some were curious about his family, and some of us were pursuing more serious topics, hoping to
While there has been much debate over proposed stimulus plans for our lethargic economy, little attention has been given to determining what exactly we are trying to stimulate. The Great Recession has exposed a major flaw in the American economy beyond risky derivatives and Hoover-esque regulations. This crisis has exposed an incentive structure for our
Just like the roommate who doesn’t clean the hair from the drain, this individual fled the scene, leaving behind a wake of soggy ceiling tiles, soaked computers and sopping boxes.
After two years of the big bad “Great Recession,” jobs may finally be resurfacing. Still, highly rewarding and well paying employment remains a specter of a better time. As such, it has become increasingly important to strengthen resumés and to create and foster connections that will allow for a smooth transition from Tufts University to one
