It’s that time of year, folks! Clean out the earwax that’s been lingering in there for so long (ran out of Q-tips? Yeah, we know you’re lazy and CVS is far away, but this is worth the trip!) because, at this weekend’s performance, you’ll want to hear every sound made by our orthopteran star attraction!His music will enchant you — it rivals the likes of the musical-masterminds Beethoven and Soulja Boy! Yes, you’ve got it —The Grasshopper himself is coming to Andover!He is making the dangerous...

Hello from Andover, Mr. and Mrs. Surname,Midterms have arrived, and now is the time when house counselors check in with parents. Your daughter, First Name, is fitting in very well here in Dorm; she’s made lots of friends, and I often see her participating in many of our dorm activities. Every time I see her on the path, at Paresky Commons or in the dorm, she can’t wait to tell me about how she’s doing. It’s as though nothing gives her more pleasure than telling me about herself. It’s refreshing...

Many returning students may have noticed that the celebrated “Video Dance,” a previously long-standing tradition that occurred every year on the first weekend of Fall Term, failed to appear in the Weekender. Features’ very own field reporters acquired this statement from Gwinfinkle, an elf delegated to represent the school’s high council, who said, “The Academy of Mother Phillips shall henceforward exist as a people free of dancing, bopping, wiggling and the like.” According to Gwinfinkle,...
