AMS Health & Dental Plan to Change

The AMS announced at a press conference Monday, September 15 an epidemic sweeping the campus and a change in the student health care plan in response. This announcement came during the ‘opt-out’ stage of the AMS Health and Dental Plan. It is rumoured that this year has seen a 27% increase in students choosing to use alternative plans.

Queen's Student Discovers Pythagorean Theorem

It was just an average trip to the grocery store, or so Hippasus - a student of Queen’s University - thought. Leaving his house located at Victoria and Princess Street with his shopping list in hand, he took the usual route: south to Brock Street, east to Barrie.

Queen's Journal: Trollophobic

In an uncharacteristically cruel twist on their usual inclusive drivel, the Queen’s Journal has shown its ugly side: a recently published article revealed deep veins of trollophobia. Anonymous online trolls, a sensitive, underrepresented minority among the student population, were reviled as “sadistic”, “psychopathic”, and even “narcissistic”, labels which were unjustly earned after one Journal reporter was probably made fun of by someone once.

Ermin Jones is one of several students who are a part of QDASORS (Queens Does All Sorts Of Random Shit). He is the Information Co-ordinator, one of several positions with fancy titles and little to no responsibility.

Five Frosh Week Lies, Corrected

Dear Frosh,

Frosh Continue Proud Tradition Of Asking Stupid Questions

“How many pages of notes do you take each class?”, “How do I tell my prof I won’t be able to make a lecture?”, “Can I really not use mechanical pencils in exams?” These are all just some of the obviously irrelevant, weirdly specific or just plain idiotic questions that have been heard all across Queen’s as frosh have flocked to Kingston eager to start their four or five years descent into crippling debt that some prefer to call higher education.

Alarm Force to Offer Frosh Proofing Service

It is that time of year again. A new batch of insecure and frightened youths, commonly referred to as ‘frosh’, have decided to call Queen’s University home for the next four or five years. The first few weeks that a frosh spends on campus can be tumultuous and confusing. As a natural response to their insecurity, frosh tend to flock together at night time. Their natural friend making and mating process causes flocks of frosh to roam through the student ghetto in the evening searching for alcohol.
