Priscilla Ball: Prominent Sociologist, Aussie Bloke Chime in on the Origins of Cross-Dressing

With the Priscilla Ball just around the corner, many male students have been asking their amused female classmates about women’s clothes.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. -Henry David Thoreau, Walden A mere twenty minute drive from campus…

The EC: Existential Confusion or Easy Coasting?

I thought the EC was supposed to be stress-free. I thought it would be a walk in the park after the trials and tribulations of last year. I was prepared for an interesting, exciting and (okay, I’ll admit it) easy year. No, no, no. That’s not at all how it’s turning out. I forgot to…

It has been 5 weeks since that momentous day in Burden Auditorium, when all 900 members of the Class of 2003 sat impatiently through slide after slide… after slide…after slide… waiting to see what one fate-determining letter would appear next to his or her name. 82 of those people lucked out.
