Calling all Seniors: Vote for your favorite Spring Week tank!

Believe it or not, ’tis the season for tanks. Yes, the sun has decided to stay on Spring Break (come back, please?), but Spring Week is quickly approaching.

Once again, the Senior Class Gift Committee is sponsoring this limited-edition tank contest for the graduating seniors. The artist of the winning design will get free tickets to Spring Weekend (!!!), and the design will be printed on hundreds of tanks that members of the class of 2015 can obtain if they donate to the Senior Class Gift. Haven’t made a donation yet? You can make your contribution at gifts.brown.edu.

Here’s where you come in: Exercise your natural right and vote for your favorite design below. Determine which one of these designs (made by your very own classmates!) gets sent to the printer and ends up on a sick SW tank. Democracy! Choice! The right to bare arms! Get to it, because the polls close on Wednesday at 5 p.m.

12 Days of Spring Weekend: A very important message from Dave Binder

Dave Binder is a Brunonian legend and a good friend of BlogDailyHerald. Coming on his 28th year performing during Brown’s Spring Weekend festivities, he’s practically royalty. So when we touched base with him and asked if there was anything he wanted to share with the very Brown students who will be bowing at his feet on Sunday afternoon, he told us to relay this exclusive and important message to you all.

Happy Spring Week! Trust the process, and you’ll be sure to have the time of your life.

Find Your Spring Week(end) Survivor

IMG_3353

Alas, after 12 days of hype, artist profiles, wisdom and advice, the Spring Week festivities have finally drawn to a close. Beat the post-Spring Week blues by reliving this past week’s events: find/tag your friends in the two photo albums on our Facebook page that catalog all that went on in this these that felt like an alternate reality. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to relieve the burden of trying to remember every last second of your Spring Week experience… and to give you some inkling of what took place over the past couple of days. (You’re welcome.)


Frosh-cessities: Spring Week is here, whatever that means

Spring Week is mysterious to freshmen. By this point in our second semester, few things still make us feel like freshmen; we have studying regimes, and there are currently young ADOCH pre-frosh wandering around, reminding us that we’re not even close to as confused as they are. We seem to have it all together.

But Spring Week(end) reminds us that we have not actually been here all that long. Because if you don’t know who Binder is, you don’t know anything.

It’s also difficult to find out things about Spring Week(end).

“Why is it Spring Week? What are the week elements?”

“Because it’s a whole week!!! And it’s the best week ever.”

That is really about as much you can get out of anyone about The Greatness of Spring Weekend. I’m thinking this has to do with the magic really being that inexplicable, and also intoxication reasons.

According to Wikipedia, which is always the solution, here is the most important element of the next six days:
