When Disney live action reboots go to theaters, a wide range of ages can be seen sitting next to one another. I am the 21-year-old shushing kids in the theaters because I want to watch Belle dancing with the Beast while Mrs. Potts sings “Tale as Old as Time” in the background.

Health Center: what’s up, Doc? Reply

By Holly Feola & John Maclean – 1851 Staff

Recently, some students have questioned the timeliness and thoroughness of health professionals in the Health Services office.

I think Health Services should open 10 minutes before their official hours to prevent patient waiting. Once, I arrived at Health Services at 8:20 a.m. No lights were on and there was no one there, despite center’s 8:30 to 4:30 hours. At 8:30 a man unlocked the door. Then, I waited five minutes for a nurse to check me. By opening a few minutes ear- lier, I would’ve been able to have my appointment when scheduled, rather than five minutes later.

I mentioned how brave she was to be wearing Birkenstocks in 10 degree weather…but the conversation did not move past this. She didn’t even acknowledge that I was talking to her. The girl’s head was buried in her phone, unaware that I was two feet away talking and looking at her directly. It was in this moment that I became disappointed and at out annoyed with how disengaged college students have become, thanks to the trance their technologies send them into.
