As we lament the impending departure of our favorite administrator, Dean of the College Katherine Bergeron (otherwise known as KBerge), we’ve naturally taken it upon ourselves to make BlogDH a Berge shrine of sorts. Not that Blog isn’t already a shrine to the legend… but we’re making this semester The Semester of the Berge. Think large hoop earrings, amazing superhero-like capes, and lots and lots of singing.
While we ask you to stay tuned for other KBerge-filled fun that we have in the pipeline, we’d be honored if you would play one last round of BergeMash with us before our majesty leaves the Hill for New London, Connecticut. We all enjoyed our inaugural game of BergeMash back in fall 2012, and in celebration of KBerge’s last semester on campus, we’re making this the best game of BergeMash the world’s ever seen. Enter BergeMash 2.0.
For those of you new to BergeMash, the essential questions and answers:
What’s BergeMash? Named after Brown’s beloved Dean of the College, BergeMash perfectly combines Dean Bergeron’s musical and academic interests in a hilariously fun and mentally stimulating game.
How do I play? The task is simple. Open up your iTunes. Pick a song. Take the title, add a colon to the end, and turn it into a Brown class offered by a specific department.
The BlogDH Brain Trust has been working diligently to make some of the best BergeMash creations. Ready… set… go.
