    Raunchy Romp released

    No, its not Penthouse and its not Playboy either. But, there is a sexuality magazine prominent on this campus: Romp. The 23 page, black and white publication appeared this month, but it is not intended to be a pornographic magazine. The publication, chartered at the end of last spring, has released their first issue around campus. Romps editor-in-chief and founder Ilya Okunev states in the section, From the Editor, that Romp is a creative, artistic endeavor to reflect the overwhelming role of sexuality in our lives.

    Read into it: get some chick lit

    Brandeis joins the Ivy League*

    After a series of intense meetings, Brandeis University has finally decided to accept an invitation to join the Ivy League. This decision was made early Wednesday afternoon and has not yet been officially announced to the public. Its about time that weve accepted the invitation, said the Director of Athletics and Physical Education, Sheryl Sousa. The athletic department is ready to face the Ivy League schools, as are the athletes. Its also convenient considering that we are close to Brown, Harvard, Dartmouth, and Yale.

    Column: College not the holy grail of maturity

    Before going to college, two wise prophets (otherwise known as my parents) gave me some valuable information. They told me that there are very weird people in the world, especially in college. After experiencing four traumatizing years of high school, I didnt think that college could be anything less than a miracle. However, after four months here, Ive realized that there are so many things that Ive learned that I wish I didnt know.
