Bears and beer: A history of WU’s connection to Anheuser-Busch

Busch Hall and its counterpart, Anheuser-Busch Hall, are seemingly designed to confuse incoming freshmen. Not only, it seems, are there two buildings named for the same brewery (yes, a brewery), but they are located almost as far apart as possible on the Danforth campus. These buildings mark the considerable contributions of the Busch family and the Anheuser-Busch company to Washington University. They’re also just the tip of the iceberg.

Five days of zen: A week of yoga to stretch my limits

Never in my life have I been able to touch my toes. This news may be shocking to some of you.

Feeling homesick? I am too, but that’s OK

When I stepped off the flight from Los Angeles to St. Louis and onto the jet bridge, my eyes watered as I saw my sigh literally form into a sad little cloud. I was back in the freezing weather where I had to wear Uggs not because they look cute, but because I don’t want my feet to get frostbitten and subsequently amputated. Outside the airport, everything was white and I was blue.

Understanding self care: It’s not quite as simple as it sounds

While it seems simple, it’s important to remember that self-care is a relative concept. Some people may find that putting on a face mask and watching Netflix makes them feel accomplished and relaxed. For others, it can take the form of booking a therapy appointment or realizing that a relationship may not be mutually beneficial.

A conversation with poet and critic Hanif Abdurraqib about A Tribe Called Quest, the terrible nostalgia of cassette tapes

Usually, Thursday night readings at Hurst Lounge just about fill the room. But Thursday night, as poet and essayist Hanif Abdurraqib stepped behind the podium to read, the room was overflowing, with people crammed into the aisles and standing practically in the hallway to hear him read pieces that touched on everything from a fight in a New Haven pizza parlor to spades to the criminally overlooked Mary Clayton.
