Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: Week of Oct. 18

Thumbs Up  Marathon Monday: What’s better than a long weekend? A long weekend with a marathon hitched on the end! Maramon, as it’s affectionately referred to on Herrd, is the only day Boston College students will gleefully arise at 6 a.m. It’s a crossover between Mardi Gras and a giant block party, with the added…

Maybe surprisingly, the latter is a more accurate representation of what it means to be a Witch in the 21st century. In fact, the…

Thumbs Up  BENCH Amazon Hub Lockers are yet another begrudging testament to Amazon’s genius, and will most likely be featured as the next case study in the Digital Technologies: Strategies and Use course (for any freshmen in the Carroll School of Management looking for current events ideas).
