Santa's Coming--I'm Ready, Are You?
As we watch the world burn, engulfed by egregious humanitarian crises across the globe, the creeping effects of climate change, poverty, and hunger, one Davidson student had a lot to say about her Christmas list this year. Sally Potts, ‘24, “doesn’t want to sound gauche,” but “could really use a new...
What To Do When Both Your Roommates Get New Boyfriends
So, two of your closest friends have started engaging in illicit activities with members of the opposite sex. Bummer. Really, huge disappointment. Because, no matter what they say and how much they may claim to love you, they’re going to be spending more and more time with their new beloved. And, the...
Exposed: WALT Radio Not Actually on Radio!
Davidson College students were recently shocked to learn that WALT 1610, the campus “radio station,” was actually just a livestream.
