By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer @sanahfaroke It’s about to be finals week and I’m stressing. I heard this myth once that college was supposed to be super fun with parties and football games and really chill class schedules, but that’s not the case at Boston University.

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer @sanahfaroke I’m the worst liar. It sounds silly to admit because “everyone lies,” but I don’t have a knack for it. I’d divert my eyes, start to giggle or smile and run away. A lie, for me, is kind of like stilettos. They are super cute, but if you wear […]

By Sanah Faroke, Staff Writer @sanahfaroke Let’s face it, nearly everything we do, we do it with the use of a battery or an outside electrical source. Writing a paper? Hello—you need to charge that laptop with 5 percent battery. And you can’t heat up that mac and cheese over an open wood fire, so […]
