The Co Co Beaux, Conn’s all-male a cappella group, hit YouTube yesterday with a video from their spring concert of what we’re pretty sure is the first a cappella group in the ‘Cac singing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s gay marriage anthem Same Love. Word is they received an approximately 10-minute long standing ovation upon finishing. [...]
About a week ago, In The ‘Cac received a tip from an anonymous Camel that made us question everything we’ve done on the site up to now. The gist of the existential blog crisis we’ve been facing down since then goes like this: is that small NESCAC school located in New London called Connecticut College [...]
The Middlebury Campus’s recent back and forth about a ‘privileged’ male’s place in campus activism has inspired a MiddBlog reflection on the use and abuse of the term ‘bro’. Our Conn blogger—self-described as toeing the bro line—declined to write a response…but he did offer to let me interview him about the practice of ‘scapebroating’. Below, [...]

It’s ironic that in an age of The New Criterion insinuating that Bowdoin College is a bastion of profane liberalism (utterly out of touch with the values of Western Civilization that higher education was once dependent on) one Hellenic tradition is being ripped right out from under the students of our fair ‘Cac. The invigoration of [...]
To Hani Azzam’s cousins in Lebanon, his friendship with Noam Waksman is a betrayal of the Palestinian cause. You see, Noam is an Israeli-American dual citizen, while Azzam is a Palestinian-American, the grandson of a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon. They befriended each other at Wellesley High School, to no surprise to you and I, but [...]
