Top 10 Napping Spots on Campus (Eggplant)

10. MAC concessions. Honestly not the best place to take a nap because of how many people walk past and how loud the MAC usually is, but we work with what we’ve got. 9. Ellsworth dining hall. Also not ideal, but it would be nice if you have the dining hall all to yourself and … Continue reading

Joy (Eggplant)

Joy! Joy. That delightful, fulfilling catchphrase scrawled in every email and all over the WRA website in a cute, quirky handwritten font.
