In the last few weeks, Hamilton has often been referenced in discussions of residence-hall desirability. It’s been said to resemble all sorts of things from a hotel to the dorms on the TV show Zoey 101. Much of this is due to the new renovations and housing style changes that were made during the summer of 2017. Notable renovations include the conversion of two-room doubles from existing singles, the addition of common rooms on every floor, and the designation as first-year-only housing.

Upon entering Secchiaroli’s gravel driveway, the first thing that struck me was the smell. It turns out that rotting food, flies, and mud are all part of a healthy atmosphere for the 300-400 pigs that call the farm home. For the past 60 years, Connecticut College has maintained a food waste partnership with Secchiaroli Piggery on 62 Miner Lane in Waterford.

Media outlets, as a result of the fast-paced news cycle, may have largely moved past the deadly Aug. 12 clash that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, but the event has renewed a discussion that should have been salient in the public sphere before now.

Let me start by saying that if at the current moment you are not threatened by the termination of DACA and thus deportation, it is your privilege that you can stand unharmed. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an immigration policy implemented by the Obama administration that allows those who entered the United States without satisfying legal procedures as children to defer deportation for 2 years and become eligible for work permits.

September 19, 2017 Katey Vesta 0

I was too young to truly understand what had happened when Hurricane Katrina decimated the Gulf Coast. Most people attempted to explain to me that a huge thunderstorm had happened in the South, in states with names too long for me to spell, and that it made the moms and dads and even the kids like me who lived there very sad.

Fans of the original text had hoped for a scarier, grittier adaptation of a book about an evil demon clown turtle, so when the remake was announced 27 years later, many were filled with hope.
