"Like, not to Bomboclaat, but she looks like how I feel about dropping this class.”  Professor Asks For Name, Major, And Scopa Tu Manaa

CAMPION HALL — Making a snap change to her traditional syllabus week practice, Professor Kylie P. Lant presented her 2:00 PM geology class with an image of former mother Casey Anthony. Then, she encouraged them to share their name, major, and “scopa tu manaa.” 

“It’s definitely a little bit odd,” said Tina Fahey (MCAS ’23). “Like, don’t get me wrong, it’s great to not be sharing any ‘fun facts.’ But I hate knowing that a professor could find my Twitter. That’s not for her.”

In general, students seemed pleased by the trendy activity. 

“When the teacher says you can choose your groups!” exclaimed one. “When he says he’s six foot three,” said another.

“Me when I can’t make rent but my landlord be lookin’ like a snacc,” four separate sources offered.

One student, Will Rachet, was noticeably less enthused.

“I don’t really know if I like this,” he said. “I’m not good under pressure. Plus, my fun fact is that I’m ambidextrous, and I was really looking forward to sharing that with the class. I mean, not to Bomboclaat, but she looks like how I feel about dropping this class.” 

At press time, Professor Lant was passing out a “vibe check” on the previous night’s reading.
