Know Your Shit: The best places on campus to poop

everyone_poops

Disclaimer: I have chosen to withhold my name from this article for one reason and one reason only: I plan to continue using these locations for my bathroom ventures. Specifically the lovely Brown/RISD Hillel. I do not want to be labeled as “that guy who told everyone to poop at Hillel.” It’s not my fault they have awesome facilities.

We’ve all been there – it’s a Thursday morning, you’re incredibly hungover, and the last place you want to be is sitting in class. As you count down the minutes until your lecture ends, you start to feel a rumbling in your stomach. Shit. Literally. All the spicy mayo you put on your fries last night at Jo’s is really starting to take its toll, and you need to go now.

We all know how deadly hangover shits can be, but the real question is, what do you do next? Where do you turn? Some people might take the gamble and try to make it back to their dorm room, but if you’re across campus, this is definitely not an option. That is why I am (reluctantly) revealing the best places on campus to poop.

poopI wouldn’t call myself an expert on pooping, but let’s face it, I’ve been doing it for over 20 years. After careful consideration, I’ve narrowed down the defining characteristics of what makes a perfect pooping environment. The first is obviously cleanliness. Nothing is worse than rushing into a bathroom and seeing that someone has already defiled your sanctuary. The second aspect that I look for is privacy. Pooping in silence is just clearly better than being interrupted, no explanation needed. The third, and oft overlooked aspect is ambiance. If you are setting in a grungy, albeit clean, bathroom, it is acceptable. But not ideal.

So here it is, the list of the best bathrooms to go poop in on campus:

The John Hay – Oh man. Was I excited when I found out the John Hay was opening. Not because of a great new study space or vaulted ceilings. No, I was excited because I knew with a new building comes new bathrooms. I was not disappointed. The bathrooms that are inside the Hay are quiet, well lit, and fastidiously maintained.

Above Andrews Commons – I find that study spaces often provide the best bathrooms in terms of privacy, but Andrews Commons also knocks it out of the park in terms of cleanliness and ambience. Not only are they well-cared for, but the large windows also provide great lighting and a heavenly glow to compliment your bathroom experience.

Welcome, Class of 2018! Allow us to introduce ourselves…

Dear Class of 2018,

Congratulations! Many of you have traveled long distances, both academically and geographically, to arrive at Brown. Before you walk through those Van Wickle Gates, we at BlogDailyHerald wanted to extend our warmest welcome.

Who are we, you may ask? BlogDailyHerald is Brown’s daily campus lifestyle blog, in other words, your guide to any and all things Brunonian. In the next few weeks – and the next four years, for that matter – turn to us when you’re left wondering: “Meikle-what?” or “Why are there people dressed up as pirates singing outside my window?” or even “It’s 1:50a.m., where in the world should I track down food in the next 10 minutes?” Allow us to help you seek out The 15 Hottest Freshman, find out what to do this week, or learn what Professor Wendy Schiller really thinks about Frank Underwood’s presidential regime. We work hard to have you covered on everything from breaking campus news, to restaurant reviews, to features on students, professors, and alumni.

Freshman year is a crazy amalgamation of “huh?s” and “oooh!s,” and flies by quicker than you can say “Brunonia” ten times fast. But in the meantime, enjoy the blur, and, in honor of our beloved past Dean of the College, we insist that you Keep Calm and Bergeron.

With much BlogLove,

BlogDailyHerald
