10 o’clock list: GIFs for Your Major

Glad someone agrees with me.

If you’re anything like me, you love GIFs.  You love sending them in texts, posting them to a friend’s wall, or just finding them for your own entertainment.  But what you really need is a GIF for your major – something you can put in an email to your professor or in the middle of your paper.

1. Women’s and Gender Studies: As you read about the patriarchy and heteronormativity, all you can do is roll your eyes like Liz Lemon.

Good morning! Here’s what you missed while you were at high school prom Philander’s Ball:

The Lead Story: Season 2 of Netflix’s House of Cards came out early Friday morning. If you’re looking for hard news, there’s plenty after the jump.

Uphill/Downhill: Kenyon Unique & Kenyon Internet

A week and a half to go before Spring break, get that paper done, study for that exam and just power through.
