SigNu’s Hotdog Eating Contest: 2nd (4th) Place

One aspect of Greek life that is often overlooked is the dedication that many Greek organizations have to philanthropy.

Boar’s Head Dinner

Last Thursday was the annual Boar’s Head Dinner, a Rochester tradition that I never really understood until I went. It’s held in Douglass dining hall and costs $21 in declining (meal plan money) to go, so I basically just assumed it would be like normal dinner but somewhat fancier. I decided to buy a ticket[…]

What to Do with Thanksgiving Leftovers?

My roommate and I snatched the last roasted turkey at Wegmans and indulged in a full Thanksgiving meal until we nearly fainted. The leftover ingredients started falling off the top of the refrigerator so I had a cooking marathon on Black Friday instead of shopping.[…]
