What’s Going on in Waltham?

Brandeis Discovers Beer: “A keg of beer was stolen from the back of a delivery truck parked next to Sherman on Dec. 11, 2004, according to Barbara Laverdiere, Aramark's director at Brandeis.”

Brandeis Discovers Sex: “Campus health professionals and students who counsel their peers on sexual safety identify genital warts as the most prevalent sexually transmitted disease on college campuses today. As many as 20 percent of Brandeis female students could be infected, reports Sioban Mclaughlin, a nurse practitioner at the University Health Center.”

I was planning to stop by campus on my visit to Boston next month, but now I'm having second thoughts- what happened to the alma mater I remember?

It's just not the same without you, I guess. ;)

The beer stealing has been going on for a while now...informed sources tell me. Then again, no one cares b/c it's Aramark after all.

As for Brandeis and STDs...is the Justice really that desperate for stories?

Now there's a recruiting slogan--"Come to Brandeis University--We got genital warts!" or "Brandeis University-Come for the diverse education, stay for the diverse genital warts!"

so this begs the question ... WHO IS HAVING SEX WITH THESE WOMEN IN THE FIRST PLACE? Obvious answers include blind, HPV-infected men.

"According to Tom Cox, Director of the Women's Center Student Health Services at the University of California at Santa Barbara, 'approximately one-quarter of college women are positive for HPV at any point in time.'"

You couldn't make up that his name is Tom Cox.
I have no joke here... seriously.
