Here at Chestnut Trill, we love jokes. We love to have a good time, throw a few good-hearted jabs here and there when we see fit. But there comes a time for jokes to be put aside and for issues to be addressed head-on. This is that time. In light of the events at the […]


Being a first semester freshman is worse than finding a maggot in your apple, so you have to savor all of the small things in life. That being said, a girl finally texted me first. Not just that, but she wanted to Netflix and chill: my specialty. She came to my sick double, I connected […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I could not be more sold on the phenomenon that is goPuff. As the temperatures drop the importance of this service only rises; do you really want to move out of your warm bed to make a run to On the Fly or CVS? You and I both know the answer to […]


Love Your Body Week: So it’s Love Your Body Week here at Boston College, and everyone should be taking part. It’s a great philosophy and ideology, and nearly everyone gets a better understanding of who they are and the infinite reasons they should be okay with that. Everyone’s always going to be dealing with something […]

Dormroom rappers rejoice. Angelo Hunt aka WavyBeatz, a fellow product of CLXF and Long Island, has been on his grind producing instrumentals for you to rap over. From personal experience I can say that they’re great to study with as well. CoRo resident Ding Zheng was two steps ahead and posted the bars below on […]


With the 2016 Presidential Election exactly one year away I figured that we ought to get to know the candidates on a more personal level, and that starts at the bar. The Democrats Hillary Clinton- Colt 45 Malt Liquor “I’m cultured. I swear.” Item: Bill Clinton. Because if there’s anyone that can schmooze like a […]
