With shopping week long gone (for now at least, rip) and me having no idea how to choose my classes, we’ve got to get CREATIVE here. Why add classes based on Q Guide comments, professor Q&A’s, or concentration requirements when you can conduct a professional vibe check off of their name alone? If your first week of classes goes wrong and you need some back-ups, move these up to the top of your Crimson Cart.

Flyby Tries: Masquerading as a Y*le Student

Why just *attend* The Game at Yale, when you can BECOME Yale? If you're looking to spice up your latest trip to New Haven, try masquerading as everyone's (least) favorite bulldogs. You might get booed by every other Harvard student, but it'll be worth it for the ~ruse~.

And for our dear friends from the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 who disappeared into the void, I miss you! Consider this my desperate plea for you too.
