Sophie Washington I have a cheap Richard Prince print on my dorm-room wall from his Untitled (Fashion) series. I downloaded the image from the internet and turned it into a poster. (I figured this would be within bounds based on Prince’s own relationship with appropriating others’ work.) I like the image because it’s simple and suggests our own complicity in consumer culture by appropriating what was originally a magazine ad.
Alex Westfall As Ivies quickly approaches, dear Reader, a budget beer was very much in the cards for this week’s issue of Tapped Out. And in the end, the choice was obvious.

Each spring, the College offers a Faculty Scholarship of $3,000 to 100 students who have been admitted to Bowdoin through Regular Decision. The scholarship is contingent on their acceptance of Bowdoin’s admittance and can be used to fund any “enrichment activities,” such as research or internships, during the students’ Bowdoin careers.

Taco the Town is officially back from its winter hiatus. This food truck, run by Chef Tai Choo and his crew, is a unique addition to Brunswick’s culinary scene. Choo grew up eating from San Francisco taco trucks and brought his tastebuds to Maine, serving up tacos, burritos and quesadillas for his community.
Diana Furukawa Every morning I get up at 6:30 a.m. My first class does not begin until 10 a.m., but I still get up at 6:30 a.m. After I get up, I grab my towel, my shoes and my bathroom caddy (which is a lovely shade of sparkling pink) and I head to the bathroom.
Diana Furukawa It’s amazing the amount of crap we write that hits the cutting room floor before you kind souls read our writing. We are men prone to waxing nostalgic. We are men prone to making the same six jokes, some involving hip-hop, some involving partying with wine in settings not necessarily conducive to drinking wine.
Courtesy of Dr. Ilan Goldberg On January 31, the Orient received an email from Dr. Ilan Goldberg with an invitation. Almost two months after publishing an article concerning the politics, process and practice of medical leaves at Bowdoin, Goldberg reached out to let us know about his own program, Semester Off.
Hannah RafkinOrder Up (LEFT TO RIGHT) Molly Safford, Eliza Huber-Weiss ’17 , Diego Grossmann ’20 work at The Café. Safford grew up in Brunswick and now lives with her family in Durham, Maine. She worked at the Jack Magee’s Pub and Grill until 2015 when she moved upstairs to The Café—a job she finds more fast-paced than working at the Pub.
