Brown Lecture Board has given us a very fun responsibility: to present our campus with their amazing options of speakers for them to bring next to Brown. For the next week, we’ll be profiling one of the six options every day, in case you need a little help in deciding who to cast your vote for. Lecture Board will pursue speakers in the order of the results from this poll, which will be open via Google Form until November 29th. You need @brown.edu email to vote, and can only do so once, so pick carefully!
The options are:
- Viola Davis, actress
- Toni Morrison, writer
- Brandon Stanton, Humans of New York creator
- Skype Conversation with Edward Snowden
- Opal Tometi, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement
- Fred Armisen, comedian/actor
You can access the poll here, and find our first profile on the site tomorrow!
Note: Lecture Board may not be able to host the speakers on this poll, given potential scheduling conflicts and availability issues.

With midterms in full swing (but, do they ever end), we want to say “hello.” We also want to know how you’re holding up. For a brief study break, we kindly ask you to fill in the blanks:
WHAT IS THIS PLACE?!
It has recently come to our attention that everyone on this campus calls the above eatery by a different name. Yes, we know that simply calling it “Andrews” would suffice, but it appears that Brunonians from all walks of campus life refers to this center of pizza and pho goodness with vastly different nicknames. Your vote on this poll will determine how Blog refers to this beloved eatery in the future… maybe. Can someone kindly tell me, WHAT IS THIS PLACE?!
Don’t you love the first week of school? You get to be excited about classes and yet have no work for them because maybe you’re just ~shopping~. While I know the whole not-knowing-your-schedule thing can stress people out, I personally love shopping, be it for classes, groceries, or on Etsy.
But sadly, all good things come to an end. You better know what you’re taking because fee-free registration, and shopping period, officially ends at 5 p.m. tomorrow. Also coming to an end: the lax attitude about work that one enjoys in the first few, hectic weeks of school. There will, sadly, be no excuse for not having bought the books. Sections will be starting… Assignments might even be coming up. So are you guys going to the library tonight? (I haven’t been yet…)
Everyone knows it takes about four unproductive hours for every productive hour of work. It’s all part of the ~process~. Are you being productive right now or do you just look like you’re being productive right now? We need to know.
