Last Call: George Miller
Here at the BlogDH, we want to highlight all the interesting things that the class of 2011 has been up to. To this end, we are (re)starting a series, Last Call, featuring seniors reflecting on their experiences at Brown. Each featured senior will tag another senior for the next installment.
Specific Question: The BlogDH tagged George Miller and asked: What are the top three stories that the Herald covered during your tenure as Editor-in-Chief? That’s a tough question. I can think of three departures that were pretty important, though. The provost announced he’d be leaving. An alum brought down Keith Olbermann. And tableslips died … sort of.
People might know me as... the guy who only goes to the SciLi to print class reading and for a muffin. A former editor at The Herald. A fan of the cereal bar and the Grad Center Bar. An English and anthropology concentrator, because I couldn’t decide which was less useful.
On a Friday night, you might find me… at IHOP. I go international, like Brown.
The best class/professor at Brown is… Professor of English Geoffrey Russom. You missed your chance, though; he’s retired.
Three things I wish I knew freshmen year... Buses are fun, and free. More free than fun. The semester always ends sooner than you think. And you might want to hold on to some of those books, since you’re probably going to be assigned them again.
Ratty vs. V-Dub? I’m a Morriss man, so there’s only one right answer here — there’s nothing like the VW when you don’t even have to go outside to get there. Plus, good music, and you can never have enough stir fry.
One thing I wish I had done… Created a GISP or ISP. I wouldn’t say the “new” curriculum was wasted on me, but I know I missed out on a big chance there.
After graduation, I plan to… turn my TV blog at 5hoursaday.com into a full time job. Or, find a real job either writing or digging.
Next up: Neil Parikh, 2011 Class Board co-president
Question: Where should I take my family for graduation dinner?
