Class of 2018: A Numerical Snapshot

A new year at Emmanuel has begun, and in its stride a new class has emerged. Besides creating neckwear out of the student ID, the class of 2018 reveals many changes to the school’s population. The class is made up of around 563 students, which does not differ immensely from sizes years before. But some statistics […]

OSAMP Digitizes Paperwork, Creates EC Learn Group for Student Organizations

If you’re on the executive board of an on-campus organization, you may have noticed a decrease in emails and portal announcements this semester—we can all thank Amma Marfo, Assistant Director of Student Activities for that.

Robin Thicke Protest at BU– Too Far or Just Enough?

What really creates the controversy around Robin Thicke’s song “Blurred Lines”? Is it the lyrics that celebrate having sex with women against their will or the objectification of women in the corresponding music video? Or is it simply the desire to argue about something? This is not a new concept, for years women have been objectified […]

10 Times You Realized You Were In A Relationship With Food

1. When you were excited for Valentine’s Day, not because of the prospect of spending a romantic night with another human being, but rather because you knew on February 15th all that candy would be on sale. 2. When you got home at 2:00am and realized that going home from the bar alone doesn’t feel so lonely […]


Why ‘Girls’ is the Show of Our Generation

“I don’t mean to freak you out…but I think I may be the voice of my generation. Or at least a voice. Of a generation.” Though Hannah Horvath of the HBO comedy series Girls is definitely not meant to be taken seriously with that narcissistic line, the show she is the center of is nothing but a spot-on depiction of young adult millennials. […]

Over the Rainbow with Brian Burns: A Tragic Child of Heterosexuals

I used to spread mayonnaise on saltines because life wasn’t depressing enough. I wasn’t on the BRAT diet nor was I orphaned, but I still spent the greater half of eighth grade slathering cholesterol globs over full-sodium crackers. It wasn’t delicious but I had spent enough afternoons mourning empty raisin bran boxes to know that […]

Written Up with Paul: Date Yourself

Editor’s Note: Paul Rowley ’16 will be joining The Hub as a columnist this year, aside from his regular contributions as a staff writer. Below is the first installment of “Written Up with Paul.” I wish my Okcupid profile and biography read something like this: About me: Hi! My name is Paul, and I’m a twenty […]

Letter From the Editors: Welcome Back

Despite temperatures that indicate otherwise, another summer has come to an end. In its place, we find ourselves migrating back to campus with new schedules, new textbooks, and new school policies. The class of 2014 has since departed and left another class to rise to senior rank, making room for a new crop of first […]

Swede Nothings with Brian Burns: My Country, ‘Tis of Thee

I stopped putting my hand over my heart during the Pledge of Allegiance at 11 years old. America was in the thick of the Bush years, the Dixie Chicks were an estrogen-fueled-country-crossover-hit away from being tried with treason, and Crash won Best Picture instead of Brokeback Mountain. There wasn’t much about America that my prepubescent-self could be proud […]
