We Brown students lead busy lives: we go from class to class, from activity to activity without a chance to get some quality rest in the middle of the day. Falling asleep in the library or in the Leung Family Gallery is neither socially acceptable nor practical, and sometimes, your own bed feels like it’s miles away. Guess what? The Boston Globe reported that a sophomore at Harvard started a petition for a nap room in which students could get some shut-eye between classes. This petition got 191 “yes” votes, and now the Harvard administration is actually considering making a nap room.
Do you know what this means? If we come together as a (tired) student body, we can make things happen. Brunonians: let’s get ourselves a nap room. Click here to fill out the petition.
Last week, I asked you all to think long and hard about your craziest sexual experience. And you guys responded in full. Along with Peter in Hillel, you Brown students seem to have taken this campus by storm, from the Quiet Green to the roof of Metcalf to the foursome just last month! WOW!
But Harvard may have beaten us in the kinky department. Last week, The Crimson posted that an organization on its campus, the Harvard College Munch, a group of students that meets (usually over lunch or dinner) to discuss issues relating to kinky sex, has been officially approved by the Committee on Student Life. The club began as an informal meeting of students interested in all aspects of the BDSM acronym (which stands for Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, and Sadism and Masochism) and has since grown into a 30-member operation.
Mae, a member of the club, is quoted in the article as saying, “I didn’t think that anyone was even remotely interested [in kink] on campus. It’s a community where you can feel safe, and you can feel comfortable talking about [kink].” Michael, the founder of Munch, too said, “Pretty much everyone who joins this club always thought they were alone.”
Did you have fun tailgating in support of Brown State on Saturday? We may have lost the football game, but we definitely had more fun than our foes from Cambridge, and we have the photos to prove it. Like our Facebook page, click through the photos, and tag your friends in this album from Homecoming. Enjoy!
Check out tomorrow’s BDH for more photos from today’s game.
Here are a few of our favorite shots from the night.
The Bears’ schedule was released today and, after the success of last fall’s triumph over Harvard under the lights, Bruno will host its second ever night game in 2011. While the opponent will sadly not be the pompous Crimson from the north–or any other Ivy League foe, for that matter–the stakes will still be high. The visitors will be the Rams of URI, and the winner gets to host some silverware–the Governor’s Cup–and prove who really is the best team in the smallest state in the union. Kickoff is set for 6:00 PM on October 1st, so clear your calendars now and prepare to get rowdy.
Last fall against Harvard, the evening setting provided one of the more memorable moments for both the team and fans–all 17,350 that nearly filled Brown Stadium to capacity. So get stoked, Brunonians. Fall semester may be months away, but it’s never too early to start putting on the facepaint.
