Still doing laundry. Saybrook’s obsession with laundry seems be a streak that runs deep, all the way down to their undergarments. Boxers have already been ordered by the Saybrook College Council and are waiting to be claimed in the Saybrook Master’s Office. Orders are currently being taken for “girl’s underwear or sports bras” which carry logos of “Say Bra” and “Underbrook.” With that, the college has secured its reputation as the Victoria’s Secret of residential colleges.
On top, as always. In the Daily Beast’s recent ranking of the Top 20 Schools in America according to “sexiness,” Yale brought home seventh place.

The Daily Beast featured a photograph of students in their sexy commencement gowns in their photo gallery, which mostly included photographs of state university students at football games otherwise. The only other Ivy League to make the list was Brown University at 19.

Liv is back. Various student groups affiliated with the Afro-American Cultural Center been coming together to host Scandal watch parties. The regular meetings seem to be just like West Wing Weekly, only with more intrigue, corruption, sex and of course, scandal.
Huzzah! Turkey legs, swords, excessive costumes and probably a petting zoo will be play a part in the upcoming weekend of a handful of students.
