THESISCRAZY 2017: The $teps

It’s all over and I got a small droplet of Andre in my eye. Senior theses were due at 4PM today, and thesis writers and their kin gathered on and around the steps of Olin to pop several hundred bottle$ at 4PM. There were several dogs and many, many people. And lots of love. And […]
