At any given point during the day, someone might be watching you. In a straight-up “1984” way. Not just that hottie in Whispers Cafe, but some random person drinking Mountain Dew as his glazed eyes take in every movement of your nubile limbs. I mean, the gazer could just as easily be a Selena Gomez look-alike, but how likely is that?
Some students may have noticed that the Whispers Cafe environment has been slightly off in recent days. Has the administration fixed the windows so that there’s no more morning glare shining in from the ceiling? No, the early birds are still blinded.
Whispers has stopped giving away free water cups because of the thousands of dollars worth of water damage sustained by the Olin Library tables. Many students are confused by the disappearance of the free water cups.

The fall season also means that I like to take naps outside.
Basically, if you want to see what someone is really like, you should head over to Whispers. I always wonder why people haven’t learned to stop spilling their business in public.
Last week, after unsuspectingly slipping into Olin Library despite its closure to the public (see my crazy Facebook album to come) during spring break, I extended my thoughts on the subject by compiling a list of the best places to go nuts in after the door is locked. It got you all thinking, I’m sure. [...]
