BlogDH Presents: Senior Superlatives 2014-2015

It’s back! Just like last year, BlogDailyHerald is proud to be collaborating with the Senior Class Board to bring you this year’s Senior Superlatives poll. We want to celebrate the members of the Brown Class of 2015 by acknowledging their smarts, quirks, or potential to become the world’s next viral reality star. Here’s how it works:

Anyone with a Brown email address can vote, which means that all students and faculty members are eligible to nominate members of the senior class.

You can:
1) Nominate seniors in 30 different categories. Nominations will close on  Monday, January 26 at 11:59 p.m.

Then, you can:
2) Vote for one of the top five nominees in each category. Voting will close Sunday, February 1 at 11:59p.m.

The results will then be posted in the following week here on BlogDailyHerald. So what now? Nominate seniors across 30 categories in a Google Form after the jump!

Pollerbears: Finals period is here…

6909b95c5b3a28664beb894772035329-a-haiku-about-finals

Life sucks right now. We all have to write eleventy million pages by the end of next week and/or memorize everything our professors ever said. Plus, winter finally started, so we’re also all freezing. We could talk about everything we have to do in these next two weeks forever (and in fact, this is what I spend my days doing: running around listing everything I have to do to my friends, on scraps of paper, in my mind, etc). But instead, let’s try and think of something to be positive about. BlogDH wants to know: what’s good/okay/not totally awful in your life right now?

What part of finals period are you dreading least/actually looking forward to?

PollerBears: Oh the weather outside is frightful…

#winterwonderland… Providence version.

It’s November, which means a seemingly endless onslaught of heavy precipitation at temperatures just above freezing has begun. In the past few days, I’ve heard a myriad of terms used for the absolutely awful weather that most recently visited us on Monday.

So what is it? A wintry mix? Sleet? The Worst Thing? Let us know. In the meantime, we at BlogDH just wish it would snow already. Time to move to Buffalo.

What do you call that really unpleasant semi-solid precipitation we get so often?

September faded into October, and Halloweek led us quickly into November. So now what? We’re here in the last full month of the fall semester, believe it or not, and are wondering how we got here or where we’re being taken. We turned the clocks back, it’s getting darker earlier, the temperatures are dropping, and finals are switfly approaching. Jeez, is there anything redeeming about November? We at BlogDH want to know, now that it’s November, what does that mean for you?

Pollerbears: What part of Family Weekend are you most dreading?

BlogDH-Parents-Weekend1

Sure, Family Weekend can be great. It likely entails reunions with loved ones and good meals. It will also probably alleviate some of that homesickness you have been feeling lately in this perpetual grey-ness that is October in Providence.

But there are also aspects of having your family descend upon College Hill that are likely to disrupt your daily life and independence here at Brown. We’re here to listen, so tell us: what part of Family Weekend are you most dreading?

PollerBears: What is acceptable at Brown?

I’ve gotten lots of shit for sitting alone in a Blue Room booth. I think it’s perfectly acceptableI got here first, suck it upand obviously others think the same because they do this as well. But some people find my behavior abhorrent. There are many other important issues that divide Brown’s campus, but we don’t have community forums in which to debate them. I wanted to bring these issues to the Brown community, and finally determine what is truly acceptable and what is not. Where is it unacceptable to get food delivered? What is acceptable to wear in class? Make your voice heard!
