Corvese '15: The limits of loans

One of the most jarring parts of the senior year career search was learning which jobs I wouldn’t be able to accept — not because I’m unqualified, but because I couldn’t afford them. Like many other Brown students from middle-class backgrounds, I took out a combination of federal and private ...

Corvese '15: Is an honors thesis right for you?

There’s nothing quite like April at Brown, which brings increasingly warmer weather, leisurely afternoons on the Main Green and the countdown to Spring Weekend. But we cannot forget about the less glamorous scenes appearing around campus: hordes of seniors racing to finish their honors thesis projects. The ...

Corvese '15: From PawSox to ProSox?

I was never a big fan of watching baseball, whether on ESPN or in person — the endless innings bored me. But experiencing the sport at a historic stadium was always a spectacle worth beholding.

Corvese '15: Demystifying the senior girl

Corvese ’15: A tale of two Thayers

Our freshman eyes were gleeful and wide when we first set foot upon Thayer Street. Its collection of diverse eateries, gaudy trinket shops and secondhand clothing stores solidified our image of Brown as the hip and trendy Ivy. Though we lacked a picturesque rural campus spanning hills and valleys, we ...

Corvese ’15: Cavemen didn't bake pies

If you haven’t heard of the Paleo diet by now, you probably live under a rock. Ironically, this would separate you from your Paleo-praising peers, who participate in a diet inspired by our Stone Age brethren but still read Paleo blogs on their MacBook Pros from the comfort of their solar-paneled homes. Paleo, ...

Corvese '15: Change rape culture, not your nail polish

Last week, the University of Arizona’s student newspaper, the Arizona Daily Wildcat, published an op-ed column by senior Rob Monteleone entitled “Only responsibility can stop rape” that featured much of the misogynist rhetoric we are unfortunately familiar with these days: Women shouldn’t go ...
