The Weekly List: Songs for a MyAccess Crash

Imagine this—it’s 11 o’clock on a Friday, and freshmen across Georgetown are rushing to register for classes. They’re in one of the very last spots for registration and are therefore understandably frazzled. They log in to MyAccess, only to be greeted with an orange error page. They refresh the page, assuming that it must be...

Quiz: Build a Pizza and We’ll Tell You What 19th-Century German Philosopher You Are

I just declared my philosophy major this past Friday—yes, I’m well aware I will be unemployed after graduation, no need to tell me.

Arguably the most important hallmark in an average undergrad’s life is a new, if not enhanced passion for coffee. Around October of freshman year, what was priorly bitter becomes heavenly. The occasional morning cup transforms into a 3-times-a-day lifeline for survival. Pretty soon you are looking up if anyone has patented cold brew IV drips,…

Content Warning: This article discusses sexual assault   As of late, believability has become quite the hot topic. In the era of fake news, the public is constantly given minimum facts and expected to follow the rhetoric of mainstream media.

Yet another Dodgers season has come and gone. Like clockwork, they’ve been eliminated from the postseason in embarrassing fashion after an amazing regular season. Playoff Clayton Kershaw. Bullpen collapses. Vanishing offense. Head-scratching managerial moves. The 2019 NLDS had it all. I don’t know how to explain any of it besides the simple fact that the…

Charlie’s Angels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voYLots_ZOg Roman: I hope to all things holy that this movie is set in the same universe as Pitch Perfect (2012), and Elizabeth Banks is playing the same character in each.

The history between the Voice and The Hoya is contentious to say the least.
