Last night, Project Runway mentor and all-around awesome dude Tim Gunn posted to his Facebook and WhoSay profiles about meeting several academics including our former president S. Georgia Nugent:
With @WhatleyKathy and @NugentGeorgia @CICnotes CAO Workshop in Baltimore! Having a blast talking with academics! XX
Gunn spent the majority of his career as a faculty member and dean at Parsons The New School for Design, and would be no stranger to the collegiate environment. Yet, I can’t help but look on with a little pride as our most fashionable former president met the world’s most famous fashion guru. Hopefully his meeting with the Nuge brought a little joy to his life after a particularly dreadful season of Project Runway and reinvigorated his life with a rousing philosophical discussion. That being said, we’ll never know what kind of magical conversations went on between them, just that they may change the world forever.
God bless Peirce Hall. Behind those heavy wooden doors lies a world of culinary experimentation unsurpassed by the most modern molecular gastronomy. Recently, special attention seems to have been paid to the Hearth station, where Chef Meagan seems to enjoy concocting exciting pizza-themed starches, as exemplified by last semester’s pizza muffin, and last Friday’s pizza waffle. But why stop there? Here, I give my humble opinions for some delicacies that could tickle the pizza-prone palate of any college student.
1. Pizza semifreddo. This Italian dessert could translate into a three-part frozen mousse: marinara, mozzarella, and essence of Canadian bacon. Together they’d make a frozen concoction that could be served either on a big cookie, or a savory cracker!
Senior year is weird. One minute you’re a child, lost in the big world of Gambier, and the next you’re looking back and saying, “Hey, things have changed slightly? Were they always this way? No, I guess not.” And then judging younger people for not knowing the same things we do. But one of the biggest changes in the past four years? The passing of the presidential torch from S. Georgia Nugent to Sean Decatur. Here, we have some seniors give their thoughts on our former president.

She had some really atrocious purple Ugg boots that I once saw her in at the Post Office. It was the dead of winter, but I don’t think that makes it ok?
