Bathroom Review: Dewey (Hump)

Quality bathroom. There’s no need to get defensive. Jeez. Local bathroom users Lucas Farano and Rocco Marten had this to say: “We use this bathroom when we can’t use our bathroom. (breath) It’s the next closest. (breath)” This proves it. Bathroom is in prime real estate location. It is located right across from James and Reilly. This room is kept lit by Panel D BKR 12 and kept safe by Fire Flasher Model Z-2 #9. You can see the Swan upstairs west bathroom from the window. Yahoo! This bathroom has like 30 cubbies or something. Heater is set to 60. Please turn down! Don’t even talk to me about showers today. I am so not in the mood. If you get tired of the regular sink just use the closet sink (conveniently located in the closet), which also contains refills (in case you ran out of bathroom juice) and giraffeiti.  Other than that, everything seems to be about up to code. Quality code, that is. 

Safety: Your job out of 10
Comfort: 8 out of 10
Design: 9 out of 10
Witty joke: None

Please keep it cool.

What house parties the mostest? I know I sound a bit douchey, but I'm just wondering. — Asked by Anonymous

Lots of houses host “House Parties,” which are themed dance parties that take place in the house’s common room. Some of these are more famous than others. Dewey’s “Masquerade” happened on Friday night, and my own house (definitely not known for its crazy parties) hosted “SLOWtell” on Saturday (sloth decor), with a couple of student DJs playing slowed-down songs.

The houses with the biggest reputations as “party houses” are generally the ones that face Commons Lawn - Canfield, Dewey, Kilpat(rick) - because they are among the houses that don’t have set quiet hours and tend to be the loudest on weekend nights.

Here’s a sample of what parties at Bennington don’t look like:

Michael Pollan ‘77 on Coffee Hour

I just found this catalog written called “Students on Bennington” that students in the seventies made for admissions. I was amazed to find this titillating piece by The Omnivore’s Dilemma author Michael Pollan of the class of 1977. What a crazy place this was.

George catered Coffee Hour last night, and, in typical fashion, really outdid himself. He served four kinds of cheese, bagels, Wheat-Thins, Triscuits, sardines, funny hors d’ourvres of tomato and cheese welded to saltines, tuna salad with far too many onions, and Almaden California Red Burgundy (an unfortunate staple at Dewey House).
