Wow, it truly is the end of an era. Whether that era was good or bad is not for us to judge, but for you, the reader, to judge. But please don’t tell us, we hate judgment. Either way, the reign of Nate and Elise is drawing to a close.

Image result for many chefs

Hello everyone, once again, and for the very last time, it’s your friend Nate here, and oh boy do I have a recipe for you today. Something good, something kind, something for everyone to remember me by because–that’s right–this is the final installment of everyone’s favorite segment, Nate’s Cookbook. This is my farewell to the culinary world, and in many ways to all of you (but also check back tomorrow for a proper farewell from Elise and I).

Come join us on our journey.

sadly, not our cranes

We like to stay pretty competitive here at The Thrill, and a Blog Off is one way we can definitively prove that one of us is objectively a better blogger (dare we say, a better person). So we leave it to you, the reader, to decide in a blind taste test who is really better as we square off on various topics. Today is a Hot and Fresh competition between our new writers, Maria Peteet ’20 and Jess Karan ’21 about which part of our library-less campus is better: the Cranes or the Pit. What do they have to say?
