Simon '16: Viva classism!

On Nov. 19, the University released a draft document entitled “Pathways to Diversity and Inclusion: An Action Plan for Brown University.” Though the plan’s merits have been highly disputed, I give the University my most resounding plaudits for its unparalleled efforts to address every social injustice ...

Simon '16: I’ll have the special

I don’t remember too much of my freshman orientation. It was both four years ago and, well, let’s just leave it at it being four years ago. And yet I have the distinct displeasure of vividly remembering one particular orientation session led by two faculty members, which was attended by what appeared ...

Simon '16: Baring it all for Bruno

Few people can lay claim to ever having removed articles of clothing for monetary gain. Fewer of these people can say they did so while studying at an Ivy League university. And the fewest of this motley bunch can say it was their Ivy League university that paid them to bare it all in front of their ...

Simon '16: Brown's Iron Curtain

The Soviet Union. That pretty much sums up everything I know about the Soviet Union. History was never my forte. I rarely found myself beating down the doors of my high school history classes to discover just which Peruvian fishing village was ransacked, who in France was beheaded or exactly how many ...

Simon '16: Pimp my university

Like too many Brown students, I find myself critical of President Christina Paxson P’19 more for sport than because I actually have any reason to be. If I’m being honest, I hardly know anything about her save that she went to Swarthmore College, prefers vegetables to pepperonis on her pizza and ...

Simon '16: In pain? Go to Spain.

I studied abroad in Granada, Spain, a city so unrivaled by any I have ever visited that I can definitively claim it will remain unrivaled for as long as I have breath in my body. I have also decided in earnest that I will retire (provided retirement is still feasible in 40 years) to a casa tucked away ...

Simon '16: On classroom etiquette

It is my sole conviction that the intended benefit of class discussion has taken two steps back and then an additional five in the same direction. I am also exhaustively convinced that chivalry is dead. But for the sake of clarity and my sanity, let us now and forever cleanly wipe Saturday’s failed ...

Simon '16: This side of Thayerdise

Unless you have been living under a slab of granite these past few weeks, I do not need to tell you about the fresh hell that opened its doors this fall to America’s gravy-train-riding darlings.  Having displaced many during construction and angered many more, 257 Thayer is a glittering new luxury ...

Simon '16: Open curriculum for whom?

President Christina Paxson P’19 was not shy about encouraging first-years to avail themselves of everything Brown’s widely trumpeted open curriculum has to offer at Convocation. But she delivered her speech with such reckless abandon in regard to today’s career landscape that it would be a moral ...

Judge sheaths historic sword dispute

The decades-long saga of the University’s missing Civil War-era sword can finally be put to rest. The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled June 4 that a sword that disappeared from the University’s archives in the 1970s be returned to campus. The ruling ended a two-year ...
