F*ck Brown

From the school whose very name is the color of shit comes a sad, sad attempt at denigrating Wesleyan, courtesy of Brown’s Daily Jolt. Fast forward to 2:06—you won’t be missing much, anyway.

Might this video have been a failed attempt at winning Brown’s first pick for housing? Might it have been an attempt to assert the superiority of shitty Ivy League song and dance over the hard questions a Wesleyan education forces us to ask? What do we make of this?

P.S. Thanks, johnwesley.

    I don’t think the mutual antagonism is particularly helpful to anyone. There’s really nothing to be gained by simplisticly bashing either university in the way that’s been done here.

    Isn’t Brown that ivy league school that no one takes seriously and didn’t even have need-blind admissions until like 2 years ago? I guess all those rich kids who can afford to go there just had nothing better to do with their time…

    It would be funnier if any of them could carry a note. Oh well. Then again, to be fair, Brown doesn’t have the Music Department that Wesleyan does.

    This is hilarious. Justin, I don’t think you needed to set the tone of taking it seriously. It makes us look ridiculous and pathetic (the color of shit? really?). Folks who would rather be somewhere other than Wesleyan, I’m sorry. Brown folks, I like you :)

    I don’t really see how there’s room for confusion here: Brown students were trying to win their housing competition by trashing Wesleyan via a Brown dean who clearly didn’t put much effort into her early education, or is unprincipled enough to realize that such a speech will make her popular. That said, I can’t decide if it really pleases me that Brown is as insecure as we are, or if I am annoyed at myself for feeling pleased about that…

    I applied to Brown, but did not get in. So I went to Wesleyan instead. I love it here, but come on, we simply aren’t as good. Let it go.

    no, 8:07, she said the classes were hard, not that they were dark. They left you “in the dark,” as in she didn’t understand them. Really, she should have done her reading. Not that I ever do…

    I don’t think this is directed at Wesleyan at all. They’re making fun of their Dean, who went to Wesleyan, and her speech, in which she… kind of… says fuck Wesleyan. (Personally I think she was referring to how hard classes can be when they wake you up to how fucked up the world is, that does make them dark, like she says.) Or else they’re making fun of Wesleyan for producing said Dean. But in terms of insulting Wesleyan as a school… I’m just not seeing it

    I think they think their dean complimented a Wesleyan education and insinuated that a Brown education was less enlightened by being more enlightening. or something. It’s probably just a misunderstanding. At any rate I don’t think “F*ck Wesleyan” is a good response. Also I don’t see how this video could possibly win votes in a housing lottery.

    I get that theme from the beginning of the video, but where’s the “Fuck Wesleyan” part come in?
