In line for Dunkin’

Deep in your closet

On the roof of Ray

Listomania: Signs that it’s Spring at PC

by Elizabeth McGinn on March 18, 2021


The return of the wannabe lax bros 

Playing spike ball on the quad (or any lawn game of your choice) 

The friars are showing their ankles

Soccer and lax games every weekend 

Everybody bringing back the folding chairs from September

Country music on the AQ lawn


The smell of trees and grass combatting the stench from Ray

Midterm madness


More fake spray tans

New Dunkin’ flavors (Irish Creme!)

Max levels of senioritis


Transitioning from hot to iced coffee…never mind, we drank that through the winter anyway

Listomania: Places to Eat at PC When the Dining Hall is Closed

Koi pond (with some sushi)

The one chair outside of your professor’s office

Your car 

Outside of Ray with the sweet aroma of garbage 

Cowl office (if you’re lucky)

Friar Development Center

Testing center (before taking a swab)

The tunnels 

The priory 

The center of the torch 

Around the fire pits (during snowfall)

Coach Cooley’s office 

Your dorm’s laundry room 

The labyrinth at Hunt-Cav

Your roommate’s bed 

The dirt

Listomania: Reasons You Will Not Have a Second Date

by Elizabeth McGinn on February 11, 2021


Forgot to wipe

Didn’t show up

Brought your mom as a chaperone

Talked about your 12 cats

Mentioned the spider that whispers sweet nothings into your ear

Confessed your love for Father Shanley

Knew too much personal information

Asked for their banner ID instead of their phone number

Communicated solely via PC Mobile

Thought they resembled Mitch McConnell

Said they smell like your mom

Brought your date home to your Lightning McQueen race car bed

Ordered off the kid’s menu

Dined and dashed

Ordered chocolate milk at the bar

Brought your guitar (and already wrote a song about them)

Said “I love you”

Asked them to be your entree à la Armie Hammer

Listomania: Reasons to drop a class during add/drop period

by Elizabeth McGinn on February 4, 2021


My ex is in it

It’s hard

My professor gives A’s starting at 94 instead of 93

It has pop quizzes

The textbook is too heavy for me to carry

It’s a non lab-based class with a lab

Someone has already tried to ask me out

It meets in-person

My professor is too hot to handle

It’s at 8:30 a.m.

I’m the only one who signed up

I used up all my excused absences already

My professor doesn’t socially distance

The person I sit next to thinks their mask is a chinstrap

Someone took my unassigned assigned seat

Start a COVID-19 outbreak

Go to an Eaton Street party

Sleepover at Guz

Dress up as Friar Dom instead of Huxley

Overdose on candy corn 

Hookup with my ex twice (they were in different costumes)

The Monster Mash

Dress up like a doctor

Get a pumpkin stuck on my head 

Go to a school-hosted event (stuck in the Escape Room)

Wear the wrong costume in a matching set

Hang out with the demons my neighbors were conjuring
