Dealing With the Crowded Hallways and Stairways Reply

Imagine needing to reach your next class in a hurry and getting delayed because the stairways and hallways are crowded with students who are all on the wrong side. A BSGE student has to deal with this problem in between almost every pair of class periods. Sometimes, people even get delayed because others are cutting them off or running in front of them. Two common ways to deal with this problem are brushing off these people or cursing them out. Which option is used more often and which one is better?

Numerous people believe brushing people off would be the best option. However, some people admit they curse others out. Samin Chowdhury ‘22 admits that he curses people out an extensive amount. But, cursing is a natural thing to do. Humans can’t really control their mouth in a rush or a bad mood. However, if you curse too loudly, just hope that there aren’t any administrators around you. If you have trouble holding back your swears, try using words to replace them. “Try saying flipping chicken licker to replace the F word,” suggests Liam Costello ‘22.  Wei Wei ’19 presented the alternative of sticking to a basic replacement such as “Frick”.

Adapting to BSGE Weather Reply

Imagine you’re going to math class and you start sweating, but as soon as you make it into English class, you start freezing. Many students at BSGE face the problem of fluctuating room temperatures every day. Some classrooms that suffer from this are the yoga room, which is always experiencing rise and fall of temperature, room 206, which is very cold, and rooms 416, 311, 205, and 402, which are extremely hot. How do BSGE students adapt to these weather changes and what influences these changing temperatures?

Although there are numerous ways to approach this problem, many students, such as Lidia Layme ‘22, agree that the best bet is to “carry a light sweater.” One can even, as Ryan Guerbi ‘21 says, “wear the same sweater everyday because it is helpful.  No one will judge you…hopefully.” Also, be mindful to make sure that your sweater isn’t too thick.  If it is, it can become heavy as you grow tired throughout the day, or it might produce too much warmth in the cold classrooms. Further, make sure not to lose it. If you do, check the lost and found on top of the piano in the cafeteria, under the stairs, and in the library. More…
