By Clarence Burrough    May 25, 2018   

The residents of 5743 South Cornell awoke to a health inspector knocking on their door this past Tuesday. Working quickly, the inspector documented eighteen violations, three of which were unidentifiable smells that “must have been something real nasty we just couldn’t find.” The residents were told to correct the violations before a surprise re-inspection in the weeks to come. This inspection cam...

SOSC Canvas Posts Too Intimate

By Warner Swatkins    May 25, 2018   

The trouble began when a number of students in Professor Bart Conroy’s third quarter of “Self, Culture, Society” expressed concerns that the readings concerning Dr. Sigmund Freud and his contemporaries would be awkward, to say the least.

Uh Oh! That Kid Just Made a Good Point for Once

By Noah Goodman    May 25, 2018   

THURSDAY 2:00 pm — It appeared to be a typical day in Professor Jones’s section of Self, Culture, and Society. Half the class hadn’t done their reading, Fanon’s status as a Marxist was being discussed, and first-year Christopher Kerber, resident That Kid, was partaking in his patent prolonged patterings.

Exclusive: We Interviewed A Campus Gargoyle

By David Manchego    May 5, 2018   

Hyde Park, 2018 There’s an old Irish (American) limerick that goes something like this: “There once was a gargoyle from Nantucket, then he moved to Hyde Park and gentrified the neighborhood.”  Sweet poem, right broskis? Anyway, we interviewed that gargoyle, or was it an old man with a skin condition? Probably should have checked. So read the interview if you want, or, like, not. We don’t really c...
