The Housing Games: The Hunger Games at Brown

May the odds ever be in your favor!The Hunger Games movie is coming out this Friday, and to say we’re excited is a bit of an understatement. We’ve listened to the soundtrack, watched the trailers (five times), and even have begun to play the game “RISD outfit or Capitol citizen?”

To celebrate our age-inappropriate excitement for the wholesale, post-apocalyptic slaughter of adolescents, BlogDH reimagines the world of District 12 here on College Hill:

It’s sometime in the indefinite future. Brown’s endowment is gone, and to make money, the Corporation has started The Housing Games—a nationally televised event where Americans can feed their schadenfreude and watch freshman Ivy Leaguers fight to the death.

So fame, mortal danger, and a whole lot of Blue Room sandwiches lie ahead.

May the odds ever be in your favor, and let the Housing Games begin!

More Outlets Hit the AQR

The Rockefeller Library’s Absolute Quiet Room has always been absolutely quiet, but its outlet situation was absolutely abysmal–that is until these power strips appeared along its walls after Spring Break. With the new outlets, quiet studiers can now charge their electronic devices with ease. Some may argue that no one room should have all that power, but with a vast majority students using laptop computers, the addition is definitely necessary. If anyone has information as to whether this was an initiative by the library staff, plant services or UCS, please post it in the comments.
