Breakfast on Bank Street (and Elsewhere, too)

Breakfast is the best meal of the day, no matter what time it is. Luckily for Conn students, there are a number of restaurants that serve so-called “breakfast foods,” (a.k.a. the only foods) around the clock. Muddy Waters Café, Bean & Leaf, and Washington Street Coffee House are among the closest restaurants to campus with […]

The Places You’ll Go, Here in New Lo

The Places You’ll Go, Here in New Lo

We’re sure by now almost everyone has read (or at least heard about) the article “Shame on Connecticut College” written by David Collins in The Day, or the read the response published in The Voice (and later, The Day) by Sam Norcross last week. And we’re sure some people may feel a sense of animosity […]

Under the Canopy of Good Tunes

Under the Canopy of Good Tunes

The greatest irony of this weekend’s Canopy Dance was its lack of a performance by Canopy, perhaps the hippest and raddest of the current MOBROC bands. A self-proclaimed “world famous band,” Canopy has played shows all over campus, including Cro, Earth House, Coffee Grounds, the Barn and at several open mic nights. The band, formerly […]

On What’s Next

During my semester abroad, while residing in a small, un-insulated cabin somewhere in the upper peaks of the Andes Mountains in Peru, I received an email from the Voice and realized there was no escape. I also realized that I didn’t mind that in the least. When I joined the Voice as a first year […]

The senior Art minor and all student show ran from March 24-April 1, with a reception on Wednesday, April 16. In case you missed it, here are some highlights from an impressive exhibition.

On the End (Part Madeline)

These sorts of pieces have one of two endings. The first kind ends happily—the message being that things at this school are improving, that we are being kinder to each other or more inclusive, that everyone is trying and things are working. The second kind is admonishing, usually, telling us that we need to change, […]

On the End (Part Molly)

I would say it’s impossible to fully prepare oneself for the waves of emotions brought about by the end of senior year at Conn. Faced with less than three weeks remaining of calling New London our home; it’s become increasingly evident how precious every minute is. Even once recognizing the legitimacy of the looming May […]

Debating Conn’s Off-Campus Housing Policy

Conn is a residential college with on-campus housing guaranteed all four years; we all came here well aware of this fact. The 2014 – 2015 housing lottery booklet clearly states, “Students are expected to live in residence at the College unless they are living with their parents, guardians, spouse or dependents within a 50 mile […]
