Class of 2015 Senior Superlatives: Voting

Last week, we presented our second annual Senior Superlatives. You nominated seniors across 30 different categories. Your job now? Vote for one of the top five nominees in each category!

Remember everyone with a Brown email —freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, professors, their pets – is eligible to vote. Vote now (after the jump) or forever hold your peace. Voting will close Sunday, February 1st at 11:59 p.m.

Please note: due to a spam-protection feature of our polling system, any one IP address can only submit one round of votes. This means that seniors who live off-campus and share WiFi networks with their housemates may find that the site suggests they have already voted when they have not; please vote either from your phones or through Brown WiFi if you encounter this problem. Email us at if you continue to have issues voting.

BlogDH’s 10 most popular posts of 2014

Screen Shot 2014-12-29 at 5.55.57 PM

As 2014 draws to a close, we’re taking a look back at everything that has happened this year — through BlogDH posts, of course. While it’s hard to imagine that 2015 is almost here, it’s even crazier that Brown has already begun welcoming the Class of 2019 (is that even a real year?!).

This past year, we made a bucket list of 100 things a senior needs to do before graduation, and we helped you get through finals with drunk-writing advice and BlogDH monster cookies. We flogged everything from wet denim to not throwing your trash away, and from the Sayles Hall bathrooms to the entire Grad Center Gym (we really like flogging things). We got drunk, sober and high with Buddy Cianci and space, and watched guys get drunk and read Cosmo. We brought you top-notch playlists with Blogify and told you what to do every week, and we added our coverage of national and global events with important hashtags, from #AYOTZINAPA to #BrownStandsWithFerguson.

We’ve done a lot this year, and you all were with us every step of the way. We present our 10 most read posts of 2014:

10. BREAKING: Sex Power God Cancelled


SPG has been a staple Brown tradition for over a decade, and its cancellation this year sent waves across campus. The future of the dance is not set, but the 2014 Queer Alliance board’s decision to cancel it made the community rethink safe spaces at Brown. Continue Reading

Welcome, Class of 2019!


At 5:00 p.m. today, decisions for the 3,016 early applicants to Brown became available on the Brown website. Commence the stalking of current high school seniors’ Facebooks!

To the new members of the Class of 2019, we’d love to invite you to get to know us so you can learn more about life at Brown. We can’t wait to see you in the fall. The most incredible four years await you.

All our love,

BlogDH and The Blue Room present: Monster Cookies


In case you were wondering what exactly a “monster cookie” is, we decided to define it for you:

Monster Cookie (noun): An inordinately-large cookie in which three different small cookies of three different flavors are joined together in delicious harmony.

There’s nothing like finals to get your culinary creativity going. That’s why BlogDailyHerald and The Blue Room decided to team up to bring you a study treat of epic proportions. Starting today and running through exam period, the Blue Room will be offering two varieties of Special Edition BlogDH Monster Cookies in their pastry case of dreams.

The two (or really, six) flavors are:

Chocolate Chip /Double Chocolate / Peanut Butter


Chocolate Chip / Double Chocolate / Chocolate Mint

Thought that the famous Blue Room cookies couldn’t get any better? Think again.
