"Location and Status of Available Printers" by Eric Levenson
Particular printers with issues: Campus Club’s 2nd floor printer needs an “Intervention,” Dod Hall is out of paper and the Fields Center is out of toner/ink. I’m also not sure what “Input Tray Empty” means (out of paper?), but it’s colored green so I think that means it’s a go-go.
"K-pop is Great for Studying" by Jarred Mihalik
So here’s a list of some of my favorite K-pop songs. I am not a K-pop aficianado, I do not go on allkpop.com. I do not profess that any one group/girl/boy is better than another. I just like the music.

So you’re feeling down and you are absolutely positively sure that you have nothing left to write. The hour is late (or early, depending on how you look at it) and you’re fed up with this paper. You’re just a page shy of the minimum so what to do? My friends, the answer is simple.

All quiet in the Firestone C-Floor, which is open until 2 a.m. this night only.
"An Ode to Dean’s Date Eve" by Eric Levenson
My eyes are glazed over, brain lost and alone,
Hard “workers” surround on Facebook and iPhone.
A blank Word Doc is open, Oh, what a sore sight!
Once again Dean’s Date Eve I’ll be up all night.
“Princeton on YouTube” by Eric Levenson
YouTube searching the word “Princeton” mostly brings up a series of relevant yet boring videos put out by the University. We dug deeper to bring you classic videos that seasoned Princetonians will no doubt already have bookmarked. But if you haven’t seen them yet, be prepared for the best of Old Nassau on YouTube.
“The freshman Dean’s Date experience (as told in haikus)” by Jesse Caldwell
Inspired by my anthropology take-home exam/essays (and perhaps as a method of procrastination), I present some haikus on Dean’s Date.
