The Week In Review

The high for tomorrow is -1. Negative one degree; really cold. Unfortunately, it’s been really cold all week and the campus has been mostly dead. The only sounds made were by soon-to-be (and, for some, soon-to-be-rejected) sorority sisters scampering from one house to the next. Not receiving a bid, however, isn’t the worst thing that can happen in to a sister. Our cover story this week details something much uglier; It shares the experiences of two who struggle with eating disorders.

As Greeks dominated the headlines this past week, we decided they deserved a second story. Coco Keevan documents the days that she spent this past week rushing with hundreds of other girls. Throughout the process she tries to decide why she agreed to spent $40 for the privilege of standing out in the cold, but in the end, she finds her answer in one particular house.

Outside of the Greek world, the campus may be dead but there’s still a lot going on elsewhere: Andrea Hart files a report from Washington D.C., where she is working for the Medill News Service; Jake Laub asserts his manliness in a downtown Chicago ballet company; Genevieve Knapp treks around town in search of free stuff. While it blizzards outside, you’ll need ways to keep yourself occupied indoors, so Brian Bouldrey, a creative writing professor, offers his three favorite books as solutions. And there’s always eight pages of the newest Weekly.
