50 Things Better Than SaxaNet

Despite being 3 months into a school year that has graced us with new Leo’s and a NUG, we still have no new SaxaNet.

What Famous Hoya Are You?

College is a time of great uncertainty. Everyday, we ask ourselves: “What will I do with my life?” “Who will I be when I grow up?” “Why did I decide to major in English?”

We know these questions might seem scary, but 4E is here to help you procrastinate writing that essay for another five minutes discover who you really are. Take this quiz, and finally find an answer to the timeless question:

What Famous Hoya Are You?

A Guide To Homecoming

Yes, it’s sadly still midterm season, which means that you’re probably reading this article on Lau 2 while simultaneously crafting a last-minute email to your professor begging for an extension. But now it’s time for you to take a break from the stress and completely ignore all your responsibilities, because #HoyaHomecoming is officially upon us. In honor of the one day a year we can kind of act like a state school, we here at 4E have complied a helpful guide to make sure that your Homecoming experience is a success.

#HoyaHomecoming 2017, colorized.

Remember: It’s a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Look, we’ve all been there: You and 20 of your closest friends are crammed into a 12×15 foot dorm room. You’re looking ~fresh~ in your very original, one-of-a-kind, totally unique Georgetown basketball jersey. Your signature song (“Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira) is playing, and that cutie from your Econ class is definitely taking notice of your impressive dabbing ability. Needless to say, the pregame is ~lit~. And at some point, this level of “litness” will likely inspire you to “go all out” for #HoyaHomecoming and do one of the following: A) Take way too many shots of Fireball B) Take way too many shots of Lime Burnett’s or C) Chug an entire can of Four Loko.

As you consider your options, 4E is here to give you some friendly advice: DON’T DO IT. Under the florescent lights of that sweaty dorm room, we know it may seem like a good idea, but trust us, in a few hours, you will come to the painful realization that it was not. The key to a successful Homecoming is to pace yourself. Unlike a normal night out, you will be expected both to stay awake for more than four hours and to functionally interact with actual adults in a non-Piano-Bar-setting. Neither of those things will be possible if you achieve maximum “litness” at 9 a.m. And as you make your decisions about how much to drink throughout the rest of the day, just remember that while Homecoming may be temporary, Snapchat screenshots are forever.

Love Thy Neighbor.

If you remember anything from last year’s homecoming, you’ll remember that our neighbors literally hate us. And noise. And alcohol. And anything even remotely resembling fun. So despite the fact that they knew ~Georgetown~ University was located here when they made the decision to move to ~Georgetown~, they will not hesitate to call the feds S.N.A.P.S on us if they catch the slightest whiff of Burnett’s or hear even the faintest hint of “Mr. Brightside” coming from a townhouse. Unfortunately for many of our readers out there, what this means is that most of your upperclassman friends will probably not be cool with you and every other member of Darnall 5 crashing their party.

But don’t worry! Getting rejected from and/or getting kicked out of at least one party is basically a #HoyaHomecoming rite of passage. And there are still plenty of other fun ways for you to spend your day! You can wander aimlessly around the neighborhood and engage in some classic Georgetown traditions, such as sprinting away from GUPD cars, getting yelled at by old people who may or may not be John Kerry, and searching for half-empty cans of Natty that have been discarded on the street.

Back on campus, you can easily sneak into pay for a ticket to the tailgate on Regents lawn- here you can do some cool stuff like get a sunburn and make awkward small talk with alumni while you wait in the food line for 20 minutes. And of course, if all else fails, we’ll always have the Vil A rooftop. Nothing says #HoyaHomecoming quite like gazing out at that beautiful Arlington skyline as you watch  your classmates come dangerously close to falling over the railing.

Georgetown residents upon seeing even a single red solo cup

Water. Food. Rest. Repeat.

Remember what I said earlier about pacing yourself? I can already tell that you didn’t listen to me. Now you’re exhausted, your phone is dead, and you’re sitting on the floor of a New South bathroom, wondering where it all went wrong. You’ve managed to lose both your dignity and your GoCard- and it’s still only noon. Bet you don’t feel so “lit” anymore, huh? But don’t despair – 4E is here to save you! First, you need to walk/crawl to the nearest vending machine/sink/Dahlgren Fountain, and HYDRATE. You are in desperate need of H2O. Drink up.

Next, you need to eat something that will help counteract the consequences of that last Natty you ~regrettably~ decided to shotgun. If you can’t talk your way back into the tailgate to acquire some free pizza, we recommend you stick with what you know and head on over to Wisey’s. After all, the best Chicken Madnesses are the ones you don’t remember eating.

Finally, your phone isn’t the only thing that needs to recharge. Whether it’s in your own bed or in the middle of Healy Lawn, you need to take a power nap. Find a spot, tell a friend to wake you up in an hour and pass out. Don’t worry, the Vil A rooftop isn’t going anywhere. There will be plenty more opportunities to embarrass yourself when you wake up.

You at Homecoming if you ignore my advice

Make Memories

As a distinguished member of the class of ‘85 drunkenly yelled at me during Homecoming last year once told me, college is the best four years of your life. I know this may not seem true as you stress-cry while writing a paper on Lau 2 at 4 a.m., but Homecoming gives you the perfect opportunity to rediscover why you first fell in love with Georgetown all those year(s) ago. So don’t be afraid to belt out the (probably wrong) lyrics to the fight song when someone inevitably starts up a bad acapella rendition in the middle of a party. Don’t be afraid to make valuable future business connections new friends as you wait in line for food at the tailgate. Don’t be afraid to break your wrist from falling off of the John Carrol statue while trying to take that perfect #HoyaHomecoming Instagram.

Because we here at 4E want to let you in on a secret: our sources can confirm that the real world is a scary place. Apparently, once you turn 23, it is suddenly no longer acceptable to sleep until 2 p.m. every day, or eat chicken fingers for every meal, or religiously attend an event called “Jersey Night” every Wednesday. And so, my fellow students, be sure to enjoy every moment of your time here on the Hilltop. And to all the alumni out there reading this guide with a mix of shock, nostalgia, and anticipation, we leave you with the immortal words of Saint John Thompson Jr: “If I can’t go to Heaven, take me back to Georgetown.”

See you soon, and Hoya Saxa.

P.S: Please actually make good choices! And remember that GERMS can always be reached at 202-687-4357.

What to Do on GAAP Weekend: Prospective Student Edition

Dear Class of 2021, and so on and so forth,

WELCOME to the Hilltop. D.C. or, as both the cool kids and the geotag call it, “the District,”  is breathtakingly beautiful and the Georgetown bubble (aka my happy place) is nestled in a cozy corner of this vibrant and inspiring city. Home to an ambitious and driven student body, professors for whom one is willing to spend hours studying on Lau 4 and one well-loved bulldog, Georgetown is well worth visiting. Sign up to have a Blue and Gray tour guide escort you along patios strewn with empty beer cans the Vil A rooftops and point out where Bill Clinton lived in Harbin Hall, before he left communal bathrooms and his cluster for a marginally-more-upscale White House residence. Additionally, please make note of following important “Do’s and Don’ts” of visiting our campus.

Don’t try to join the meme page

Please don’t pretend that you’re a non-conforming Jesuit teen. Prep school has not prepared you for this type of meme mastery. One ~incredibly persuasive~ reason to attend this university and surround yourself with peers who also did quite well on the SAT, is the high caliber of meme quality that you will find here. However, seeing as you don’t go here (yet), you probably won’t be able to fully appreciate our self-deprecating jokes. Additionally, by bemoaning the state of Leo’s, Lau and the basketball program, the meme page fails to highlight the many things that make Georgetown so wonderful, and we don’t want you to get the wrong impression.

Don’t disrespect Leo’s

What are the odds that Leo’s will look like the Hogwarts’ Great Hall after the remodel? (unfortunately slim..)

To the hordes of red-sweatshirt clad minions getting WAY too excited about the weird ice cream flavors and groups of parents concernedly poking at salads, I don’t really understand why you are here. First of all, it’s O’Donovan’s by the Waterfront, to you. You are not allowed to poke fun at Leo’s mysterious lack of forks, soggy scrambled eggs, or constant abundance of gross Rum Raisin ice cream unless you have spent 14-18 meals a week in this fine establishment, and Kim Kim knows you by name. Second, while Georgetown is truly an incredible place, our on-campus dining options are not the reason that my future children’s first words will be “Hoya Saxa.”

Don’t brag about going to Georgetown “Frat Parties”

I would like to help you make the important distinction between a “frat party” and a party (or awkward, sweaty gathering) thrown by a frat in a cramped and dimly lit Henle apartment. I suppose I am powerless to stop you from putting a video of yourself singing along to Closer on your Snapchat story or taking a shot of Vanilla Burnett’s (Disclaimer: teen drinking is very bad, and also illegal). Just know that you’re not as cool as you think you are.

Do bask in the glory of Healy Hall

Does looking up at the Healy clock tower give you chills? Copley Lawn, peppered with Hoyas studying on blankets, throwing frisbees and laughing with their friends, feels so perfectly collegiate. The idyllic-ness of the hundreds of color-coordinated tulips gently swaying in the breeze by the front gates (almost) justifies the exorbitant cost of arranging such botanical displays. Can you resist taking a picture with John Carroll? Of course not. He is the GOAT, and you probably won’t get in if you don’t document meeting him (in statue form). Please note, this is not all too good to be true. I can assure you that one year later, when I am hammocking with my favorite people on the front lawn, it still feels just as magical.

A few additional points of clarification:

  • If you got the impression on your tour that The Corp rules this campus, this intuition is quite correct.
  • Jack the Bulldog and I are in an exclusive relationship. Take as many pictures with him as you would like, but he and I have already booked a date for our Dahlgren Chapel wedding.

We All Need a Little Jack the Bulldog

Jack the bulldog

It’s been a tough week – no matter how you feel about Tuesday’s results. The world may feel like a strange, divided place right now. But, if there is one thing that can bring us all together, it’s our very own Jack the Bulldog. So sit back, stop refreshing every news and social media site, and just enjoy…

If you find yourself asking what rocks during this time, we at 4E have the answer.Screen Shot 2016-11-10 at 17.18.21

Don’t worry, Jack will never let go.

So You Need A Halloween Costume?

Banner - CostumesWe’re almost two weeks out from Halloween, and even though we’ve been celebrating and talking about it since mid-April, it’s actually time to get ~serious~. If there’s one thing we all know for sure, it’s that Halloween isn’t so much about having fun as it is about getting a new killer cover photo or breaking 200 likes on your Instagram pic. With the help of 4E, you have four solid, not totally atrocious nor totally basic costumes to choose from. Better yet, they’re all tailored to Georgetown, so it reduces the likelihood that that one person you hate from your high school will be wearing the same costume as you. With one of these bad boys on, we wager you might even break, like, 300 likes.

 

1. John Carroll (Statue)

statue-of-john-carroll-founder-of-georgetown-university-washington-dc

To start off this list we have a Georgetown classic: the John Carroll statue. I’m tailoring this costume to specifically refer to the statue because I don’t know what John Carroll looks like in non-statue-form, and neither do you. Anyways, this one is great because you can decide how far you want to go with it, you can keep it simple and wear a long sleeve shirt and wrap a sheet around your lower half or you can go all the way to statue-mime-street-artist.

This costume will also buy you at least like 15-20 minutes of good, solid attention at any party you walk into, and once everyone is over it, just saunter right on to the next party.

*Sexy “John Carroll”: for girls this just means making the skirt shorter. For guys, no need for a sexy upgrade: the freshman girls will already be crawling up on you to take pictures with you. I mean, that’s what the John Carroll statue was intended for, right?

2. MSBro

Screen Shot 2016-10-12 at 11.51.37 AM

Does this one even need explaining? The multiple layers of polos (extra points for Vineyard Vines brand) are both warm and super stylish, the rest are lifestyle choices if you truly want to commit to the character. Alternatives include a SigEp shirt or even a Goldman Sachs zip-up you got from your internship over the summer. Both are great options.

Pursue this costume with reckless inhibition. Who cares that Halloween is on a Monday? You weren’t going to go to class anyways!

3. Jack the Bulldog

d125afc525c3ef1e70f22094fbc5cdd3

A potential downside to this costume is that for the ladies, it may be slightly more difficult to stand out among the abyss of other animal-eared gals, especially when being a cat for Halloween is basically the same thing as wearing Stan Smith’s on campus…we’ve all done it and we’re all guilty. But whatever–the upside to this costume is that, like most animal-themed costumes, it’s really easy to make this sexy.

Dog ears + Georgetown crop top and maybe even some dog face paint (if you’re willing to try out that Instagram DIY against your better judgement) = perfect five minute costume and you’re not even going to have to use the snapchat dog filter all night!

Seriously, don’t use the dog filter with this costume, its too meta and you’ll probably end up looking something like:

 

4. Chesapeake Babe

Screen Shot 2016-10-11 at 9.42.58 PM

This is every Georgetown girl’s last minute costume. Just throw on your Lilly Pulitzer shift dress, Jack Rogers (obviously the gold ones), navy LongChamp (all which should have been included in your welcome package) and you’re good to go. Oh, and for the hair, just take the two pieces around your face and clip those bad boys together in the back. Bonus points: bring a Martha’s Vineyard windbreak in case, like, it gets chilly.

Sexy version: Try a two piece Lilly set; some of the skirts are seriously short and you can always throw on a monogram necklace or some Cartier love bracelets to spice things up.

Enjoy every moment because this is the one night in the Georgetown/DC area that you could stand out wearing any combination of these items.

Show up to the party with a few of your friends and start talking about Nantucket and how Exeter parties were so much better than the ones here:

If you don’t have something to wear yet, then you def need to get yourself together and take one of our suggestions. Don’t be too picky or you’ll end up wearing some stupid banana suit you got from a friend-of-a-friend under some bed in New South. Beggars can’t be choosers and these next two weeks are crunch time.

And in case you thought you finally found a Halloween-related post without a Mean Girls reference or gif: SURPRISE! Happy Hoyaween!

Leo’s: The Mysterious & Majestic

IMG_0250-1024x7644E has a lot to say about everyone’s favorite dining hall on campus, but first let us say: CONGRATS!

We are seriously so happy and excited for the joint success of the Georgetown Solidarity Committee and the Leo’s-Aramark campaign with their win!!! The advocacy and rallying done by students and workers on this campus have yielded extraordinary efforts:

  1. An increase in minimum wage for Aramark workers by $2.00 over the next 4 years
  2. Broader health care coverage with lower premiums
  3. Greater protection for immigrant workers
  4. A sustainability committee to improve food quality, as well as paid training for all cooks
  5. Life insurance and a scholarship fund
  6. Guarantee of union representation and a fair bargaining process for all other Aramark employees

Finally, the hardworking friendly faces that are responsible for our survival each day (literally a freshman with a meal plan owes their life to Leo’s at this point right?!) will receive the benefits and compensation that their hard work deserves!

*Even those of you who may not be particularly keen with the options at O’Donovan’s by the Waterfront have to be grateful for the familiar friendly faces that serve us our vegan banana bread, chicken tenders and wok each day.

giphy-8

Now to the other purpose of this post……

Leo’s: the mysterious and the majestic.

As an avid Leo’s goer and Leo’s lover, I find myself full of questions about the magic that goes into creating such a deluxe college cafeteria environment. My personal favorite mystery is the playlists: Where do they come from? Is there a schedule? When is the best time to go to get a little throwback 2000’s R&B/hip hop going on? But best of all… how will I ever get my own music collection to live up to the glory of Leo’s?

It’s been rumored that it is the Leo’s workers themselves who pick the playlist. While I can neither confirm nor deny this, I will commend it. It’s just always so on point.

giphy-14

Jo-Jo, 3OH!3, Michael Jackson, 50 Cent, Walking in Memphis, Get Low… They seriously run the gamut from the all-time best sing alongs to the songs that bring you back to the days of driving to the grocery store with your mom as a little kid. It’s magical.

On another note, 4E has heard the speculative rumor that Leo’s is, in some discreet way, offering tours?! True or not, we have come up with a Leo’s bucket list of our own to explore the mystery…

1. The room out back downstairs where all of the basketball players eat: what goes on in there? We figure it probably involves crowns, worship, and caviar…?

2. Where does the food come from? Actually though, they’re serving thousands of us each day, how do they cook it all? Do they have a team of minions helping them out?

3. Where does Jack the Bulldog eat? Feeling like it wouldn’t be unsafe to assume he has his own kitchen and palace somewhere up in here.

4. The elevator outside in the back: where does it go?

giphy-7
Access to Hogwarts?!!?!
giphy-6
Narnia?!!??!!

5. What are the vegan chicken nuggets made out of? Because they’re seriously so good.

For now, that is all. Congrats again, Leo’s! I’m sure many of us will be seeing you soon.

Jack Previews a New Trick

Jack Trick

You may have noticed that here at 4E, we’re pretty obsessed with the school mascot, Jack. So imagine how excited we were to be invited by the Jack Crew for a preview of Jack’s latest trick, to be formally debuted at the Verizon Center. We met up with Jack’s caretaker, McKenzie Stough (COL ’13), one of the heads of the Jack Crew, Neve Schadler (COL ’15) and Frannie Murray (SFS ’17) to check out Jack’s new trick and talk about his training schedule.

IMG_6903

What’s a regular day in the training life for Jack?

McKenzie: He’s been training all year, we’re really excited. We’ve already practiced this trick at women’s basketball and women’s volleyball games. Last year we practiced outside, but we’ve moved into the gym. We sneak in at lunch time.

Neve: Three times a week for an hour.

McKenzie: He can get on by himself. He’s had an affinity for the skateboard since he’s been a puppy.

Frannie: Bulldogs have a low center of gravity, which helps with the trick. Also he’s from California, so he’s laidback. He’s a skater boy. And he’s so smart!

What’s your favorite part of training Jack, or being a part of the Jack Crew?

Neve: We’re not just walking a dog, we’re representing Georgetown. He’s the face of the Hoya blue spirit. Also he’s a fantastic dog, so loving. He’s the University’s pup. It’s an honor.

Frannie: It’s hard to find an image of “Hoyas.” But Jack represents the Hoyas and all of the students. When big athletes see him, they break down in smiles. They love to hang out and pet him. His smile is so infectious!

McKenzie: He’s so excited to see everyone that he knows.

Neve: There are six of us in the Jack Crew and he recognizes us all. He’ll get really excited when he sees us even if we’re not walking him.

What’s his favorite reward?

McKenzie: We try to tier his treats. In practice we give him a lot of small treats. But at the Verizon Center, we give him turkey. He loves that.

Neve: Or cheesesticks.

Frannie: He loves carrots.

What’s Jack’s pump-up song?

McKenzie: Actually, we’ve been trying to think of one.

Neve: “Who Let the Dogs Out?”

Anything special you’d like to add?

Neve: We’re so excited to show off this new trick – it’s been so much hard work. This trick fits his personality so well.

McKenzie: The point of the trick is to get people up and cheering. That’s our mission.

Frannie: I think our mission’s been successful.

IMG_6895

 


Thanks McKenzie, Neve, Frannie and (of course) Jack for previewing for us! Maybe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can definitely teach an adorable mascot how to skateboard. We can’t wait to see Jack in action at the Verizon Center.

Jack the Bulldog Is Killing the Insta Game

hi2jacksApparently Jack the Bulldog is a real Instagram expert. His most recent instas are praisewothy and 4E enjoys praising. So here they are:

Markel Barks! Jack shows his hops sporting a #Georgetown #Hoyas basketball jersey. Tune in for a new #Halloween costume each day this week!

We really enjoyed Jack’s Halloween costumes but his Instagram captions made them even better.

So witty. No wonder he got into Georgetown.

And the resulting recording is pretty cool too. Hear Jack spit hot fire:

We also love Jack because he addressed Kim Kardashian’s scandal-inducing gluteus maximus via Instagram. #breaktheinternet

Staffer of the Week: Brian Carden

staffer of the week

Once a week, The Hoya recognizes one or two staffers who have done a particularly awesome job — now you can get to know about them, too. Here’s our interview with Staffer of the Week Brian Carden:

Brian Staffer

Hometown: Port Washington, N.Y.

School: MSB
Major: Finance and Operations & Information Management
Minor: Economics
Year: 2016
Position on The Hoya: Director of Sales
Why did you earn Staffer of the Week?

I sold a bunch of ads, including breaking the record for the New Student Guide. To quote Executive Editor Mallika Sen, “#nonewsfriday.”

What famous actor would play you in a movie about your life?
I’d have to say Adam Scott since I have a strikingly uncanny resemblance to Ben Wyatt.

What advice would you give a young Brian Carden – let’s say four years ago?
Don’t take yourself so seriously.

Are you a Jack the Bulldog or a John Carroll?
While the idea of lounging around Copley Lawn and winding up in the profile pictures of squatting freshmen certainly sounds appealing, I’m going to have to go with John Carroll. Like me, he seems like the kind of guy who liked to get stuff done. (I mean, after all, he founded Georgetown.)

Congrats to Brian! May you continue in your sales success.
