As finals wrap up and Hoyas head home, Vox will be taking a break for the holidays. We’ll still have sports coverage and coverage of any breaking news, and we will return to regular posting on January 9. Over the holiday, we will be designing new bits and pieces for the blog, as we continually try to improve the product we deliver to you.
But enough about the future. For now, let’s remember the semester that was.
It started in August with a benches-clearing game-ending brawl between the Hoyas and the Bayi Rockets during Georgetown’s “basketball diplomacy” tour of China.
Later in the month Irene visited, a massive hurricane that was supposedly going to destroy D.C. but ended up blowing down some trees and knocking a few tiles off the new science building.
The Halloween festivities on M Street were marred this year by a shooting.
A Georgetown student studying abroad at the American University in Cairo was detained for allegedly throwing Molotov cocktails at government authorities in the midst of widespread protests there. He was released several days later, and told the world about his experience.
Georgetown’s hipster status was found out. Perhaps the Georgetown student who allegedly threw a brick through a neighbor’s car window earlier this month didn’t realize that Molotov cocktails are the new alleged projectile of choice. Bricks are so 2010.
Because the world will presumably end in 2012, let’s make it count.
