Quiz: Is your GSI cooler than you?

It may not happen that often, but at some point in our college careers, we may realize that some of our GSIs are way cooler than we are — and possibly cooler than we’ll ever be. It’s slightly saddening to consider that our lameness may be reaffirmed in such a way, but it

You should listen to this

During every conversation I have with somebody about music, we always end up with the same type of exchange. I’ll recommend a song to a friend or ask my roommate if I can play her a neat tune, and they’ll say sure. When the music starts, they always already know
