For the full-force feminist: Stuff Mom Never Told You

Because it’s lunchtime, and you just want to talk about online dating, what “fleek” means, and the glory of yoga pants. Hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin get you, girl. Conger and Ervin chat about general topics and, with feminine punch, explore the role of women in the modern world. Importantly for women, Stuff Mom Never Told You is unapologetic about its stance on pop culture and the myriad ways it affects female identity without straying from a light-hearted delivery. Grab your soy latte and enjoy. (Stuff Mom Never Told You on iTunes)

The Scientista Foundation, a national organization designed to provide career support for women planning to go into science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, is coming to Barnard.

Amanda Brodsky, BC ’15 and a psychology major, decided to start the Barnard chapter to help women who are STEM majors meet one another and get career advice. Though the group already has a board of eight students, it is still in the process of adding members and gaining recognition from the Barnard Student Government Association.

I assume he slinks to the floorboards and then relies on his Silent Snake-like training to guide him steathily from the room when he realizes that he has not completed his assignment. Honestly, why didn’t he ditch the class like a normal person?

Oh, I had no doubt that the slouching could be achieved easily, but yeah, ditching would have the same effect really…

She’ll know that you’re there. Teachers aren’t dumb.

Let’s not forget that this is most likely an overworked educator of the early 90’s with an oversized class, it’s conceivable that a teacher could overlook a student in a severe slouch.

But we’re still missing the big issue here, people! If the student isn’t in class, either because he ditched, or he’s got a mean slouch going on, what’s the master plan here? Homework’s due today, you’re not here. You just expect to show up tomorrow and hand it in like nothing happened? I don’t think that’s going to happen. Where the hell were you yesterday? Oh? Slouching? Well that doesn’t count. No marks.
