1. Your roommate(s)
Not kidding. Any warm body helps meet quorum.
2. Your computer and/or smart phone
You got to be able to keep up on your tumblr dash. Plus you can use the Internet to encourage people to join you at Plenary.
3. A pillow
You know, in case you need a nap.
4. Head phones and/or ear plugs
Because no one actually wants to listen to Robert’s Rules of Order. That’s too much Hell even for Hell Week.
In the 20 minutes I was at Erdman performances, I saw:
- Three people sing Pokemon theme song (which I did not recognize)
- A moving rendition of “Let It Go,” which I heard for the first time ever
- A stunning display of support as upperclassmen sang the chorus to “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes when the music cut off before the freshman could get to it
- The crew team (I think) sing “Under the Sea”
- A performance of “Abracadabra” by Brown Eyed Girls (which I did recognize!)
- A performance of “Do You Love Me” from the incomparable Legend of Old Gregg
(Favorites from the past include selections from A Very Potter Musical and Jayne’s song from Firefly.)
- Likes and reblogs (no limit) will count; winner will be selected using a random generator.
- There are four spaces in my car. These can be filled by frosh, or UC students—yes, you can roll down the windows and shout “encouragement” to the runners.
- Hot chocolate and donuts (Krispy Kreme) will be provided to all passengers.
- Spaces are transferrable (i.e. hellers can win spots for their hellees, or vice versa if you’re a little masochistic)
DORM DRESS UP DAY:
The frosh are like…
But the UC are like…
DUCK POND RUN:
FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF:
Petition for graduates of Bryn Mawr to call the school our Alma Mawrtyr.
Anonymous said: I don't know if you know about this, but if anyone is wondering about jobs/success with an English major or wondering whether or not to major in English in the first place, if you go to Bryn Mawr's academic section and find the English program, there's an entire page with reflections made by English majors. www(.)brynmawr(.)edu/english/Why(.)html
Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I really like the quote at the top linking English to math—very insightful.
Fun Fact: Bryn Mawr was the first college I ever wanted to go to. (But I ended up not applying because by my senior year, my priorities had shifted.)
I used to be a straight-A student. Now I’m not even straight.
M. Carey Thomas has a very special finals week message for you. #bmcbanter
If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.
