It’s that time of the spring again! Sepomana 2013 is here! For those who don’t know, Sepomana is like Midd’s own indie music festival put on each year by WRMC. Think Bonnaroo, just slightly smaller and in McCullough. This year’s lineup is below as well as small blurbs and videos from each artist. The concert starts this Friday, April 5th at 8 pm in McCullough. Tickets are $5 at the box office now!
Even the visiting Prospies can detect the tension of room draw week, as tomorrow is the start of the lottery that will determine the rest of our lives. Ok, it’s really only a year, but with a crummy number like mine it seems like this is the end of the world. Groups of friends are teaming up and others, like myself, are being dropped from lists. Karin Hall-Kolts’ “quick list” of rooms has quickly become my number 1 visited page as I frantically search for a single worthy enough of a senior. With a number like 593, though, nothing is guaranteed. Therefore, I’ve been researching my other options on campus.
1. 593 should get me some prime real estate on Battell Beach, right? I figure that I can keep my clothes in my car and shower in the gym. It might get chilly during J-term, but a 5 star arctic tent, a space heater, and a lot of blankets should do the trick:
It’s even bigger than my sophomore single was!
2. What about a year long slumber party in the Bunker? We could tell ghost stories every night, have pillow fights, the whole shebang. Once upon a time the Freeman International Center (FIC) was supposed to be it’s own commons, so why not start that up again?
3. I spent last semester abroad, and when we didn’t have enough money to stay in a hostel we would crash on church floors. I may need to ask the administration, but I’m thinking that Mead Chapel is a viable option. While it may not have the comfiest sleeping arrangements, it is a great location on campus: right next to Proctor, an easy walk to the gym, and really just has a spectacular view of the mountains.
So let me know what you think! And if you have any other suggestions, please let me know because at this point, I’m open to anything.
Curious about what’s next for Solar Decathlon? Eager to finally see their conceptual design come to life? Now’s your chance!
At 4:30pm on April 4th at Ridgeline, President Liebowitz and Solar Decathlon team members, Kate Eiseman ’15, Cordelia Newbury 13’, and Laura Romig ’12.5 will speak to kick off the team’s spring construction.
Food and refreshments will be served, as well as music by student band The Blue Laws (Kento Mizuno ’15, Dustin Lowman ’15, and Danny Nigh ’15).
For more information leading up to the event, feel free to “like” the Middlebury Solar Decathlon 2013 Facebook page and check out their website!
As April 1st comes to a close, we’d like to reveal that all posts from today are fake! Sparkling will not be turning into a Starbucks and the Proctor Cat did not have a litter of kittens (we don’t even know if it’s a girl…). April Fools!
Also, for those who saw our third post of the day, chronicling the fictional plight of Angelo class of ’17, we apologize if our joke was offensive or disrespectful. The profile of Angelo was based on the character of D’Angelo, a young drug dealer who turns his life around in the hit tv show, The Wire. We certainly do not mean to sweep this issue under the rug if you felt the post was distasteful or offensive, so comment below or shoot us an email and perhaps we can continue the dialogue into a constructive conversation.
Meanwhile, hope everyone enjoyed their spring breaks and had a light-hearted and enjoyable April Fools Day!
Got ya! This was a post written for April Fools Day 2013 and is completely fictional.
While we were all gone on Spring Break, the Proctor Cat was busy with her own nefarious activities. Tweets from Director of Dining Services Matthew Biette and several excited snapchats from excited Heburn residents confirm that the Proctor cat has had at least 3 kittens, maybe more. Bragging rights go to the first person who snaps a quality picture of the litter. Looks like there are going to be some new mouths to feed around here.
