Dining Hall Change-Up

October 2, 2015

As Loomis Chaffee continues to grow in size, the administration has decided to make some changes to fit the increasing population of Pelicans. Falling subject to these changes is the dining hall. The entire student body has some constructional criticism for the dining hall. Nothing personal! We are just...

Election and You

Election and You

October 2, 2015

In past years, I experienced political elections through the lens of SNL sketches and snippets of conversation at the dinner table. While Loomis Chaffee encourages learning and achieving one’s best self, I have found that living on the island has marooned me from most news that doesn’t circulate...

The Legality of the Yearbook

May 24, 2015

As the end of the year approaches and the idea of my transience on the island becomes more and more apparent, I take comfort in the memories I have captured in the various embarrassing, heartwarming, and nostalgic photos. You may have repressed the memory of your freshmen year back-to-school dance, but...

Cutler: Cutting it or not?

May 24, 2015

Cutler Hall: the towering construction project in the center of campus, the project that appeared out of thin air, almost literally. After gathering people’s opinions about the new development on the Island, I found that most students have one question that MUST be answered: why now? Richmond was just...

Terrible Tom?

May 24, 2015

Tom Brady built a stellar career and reputation in the NFL, to the extent that he was increasingly being viewed as the best quarterback in the history of the league. Drafted in the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots, “Tom Terrific” has been nothing short of astounding....

The Veracross Vote

May 24, 2015

Discussions regarding Veracross have been going on for months in faculty meetings, classes, and student conversations. Hopefully all Loomis students have an idea of what Veracross is, but for those that do not, Veracross is a online system where students have access to their results on tests, quizzes,...
