You may have noticed the phrase “Cloyne is suck” somewhere at Cloyne. In my time here, I’ve seen or heard it on multiple occasions: scratched into pavement, chalked up in a bathroom and in the courtyard, and said over email and in conversation. However, given its history, I think the use of this phrase is against values of inclusion here at Cloyne. For people who may have forgotten or never even heard it to begin with (who I imagine constitute all, or almost all, of the people who use it today), I’d like to share the backstory behind the phrase, some of its current usages, and my thoughts on all of this.*
Just made a guide for cooking beans and rice, for part of my HI this semester. Feel free to use it if you have a beans and rice workshift, if you’re head cooking, or if you just want to learn how to cook. You may also improve it for HI, with the appropriate managers’ approval.
