Happy first day of finals period!

Woohoo, we can’t believe it’s finals period already — this year really went by at (Semi)sonic speed… But don’t worry. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

Tiger v. bear: A Q & A with Prez-elect Christina Paxson

Last Wednesday’s doughboys and flash mobs proved it: Ruth is leaving, and soon.

Now it’s time to face our collective Brunonian future: Pax City, which…officially begins July 1. The Herald already ran an interview with [Spoiler Alert] Chris, but our ink-stained brethren missed some of the truly important stuff.

Want to make your own GIFs? Cinemagram does the whole isolated aspect/nostalgic filter thing for free. Go make your own Faunce steps + iced coffee GIFs. But quickly. We’re already almost sick of them.
