Holy Cross Announces That The “Become More” Fundraising Campaign Will Be Held In Your Room

Rest easy, Dinand and Kimball will reopen, because all activities have been moved to your room.

College of the Holy Cross

As many of my classmates are aware, this week’s “Become More” fundraising campaign has put some pressure on the currently enrolled students. Dinand Library, Kimball Dining Hall, and various other locations have been shut down for speeches, presentations, and other initiatives. Many students have been in an uproar; where will they eat, print and study? I spoke to an administration employee yesterday to better understand why such important facilities were closing, he said, “Wait, don’t students study in Fitton Field?”

Thankfully, the college has a solution. Effective immediately, all alumni activities will be moved into your room. That’s right, you can rest easy this week because Kimball and Dinand will be open. Just be sure to knock before going back to your room. I asked the same employee how the administration came to that incredible decision. He told me, “Shut up, I’m talking to alumni.” But after some persistence, he answered my question, “We decided to put the education of our students first. Obviously, Dinand and Kimball are more spacious, but after the large number of complaints we received, we thought it would just be better to fit hundreds of alumni into your room.”

Students could not have responded more positively to this news. I approached some of them playing Frisbee out on the Hoval, and they were excited. One said, “At first I was skeptical of hosting so many people in my room, but they’ve been really great. In fact, one said that he might consider donating enough money for an actual air-conditioning system!” The whole grouped laughed, and another interjected, “Having so many distinguished alumni in my room has been a real treat. They really seemed to admire my Kate Upton bikini poster and the Lil Wayne music I had blaring in the background.”

Your room was definitely the right place to hold these events, and Holy Cross projects that this year will yield a record breaking fundraiser.

One Alumni was quoted as saying, “Honestly, if they kept the events in beautifully decorated buildings like Dinand or Alumni, I would have thought the college had too much funding, and I wouldn’t have donated any money. But after spending time in your room, I couldn’t give enough. I mean, it was a pigsty. I think I stepped on two week old pizza, and it’s still on my shoe. Also, your towel looked like it hasn’t been washed in three weeks. So please, just take my money and build a decent dormitory!”

So before the final events on the schedule begin in your room, would it kill you to clean up a bit?

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
