April 17, 2013

If Patrick Devereux ’15 had a soundtrack, it would be comprised of such princes of southern rap as Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, OJ da Juiceman and Lil Wayne. For this particular day in the life, track  no. 1 would be “Shawt Bus Shawty,” a Youtube sensation that parodies Devereux’s composers. “I...

  While students have probably seen Colby Horn ’13 wheeling around campus on a unicycle, he is not one to brag about his unique skill. “I’m probably one of the newest additions to the collection of unicyclists,” said Horn. “But I have been learning and using it to drive around campus.” Horn...

For many students, MiddExpress transcends the services of a basic convenience store. Or maybe it is the bone-chilling excursion on a Vermont winter night that can turn a simple toothpaste run into what makes MiddExpress a true staple. Be it the offering of a wide variety of chasers on a Saturday night,...
