Rest your brains and grab your favourite cup of iced coffee,
Dear avid readers,
MUSE is out.
Forget about your exams and papers (what is that anyway?) and treat yourself with this gigantic and dazzling edition of MUSE.
This semester MUSE is celebrating its 12 years of existence with an absolutely delightful range of written pieces going from riveting prose to sensational poetry to choose-your-own-story-adventures.
Have you ever wondered how our dear Americanist Agnieszka Soltysik Monnet feels about Migros Ice Tea? Or who she would like to see on Mount Rushmore? Have you ever wondered what misconceptions we might have about sheep? Or who the best and plushiest sheep on campus is? Then have a look at our exclusive interviews with Agnieszka and UNIL’s shepherd Bob Martin, who have both so kindly sat down with us and shared their stories and experiences (and the interviews both feature fluffy illustrating secrets that you will not want to miss!).
Finally, we have once again gone out to ask the students about all the strange rumours they might have heard about our dear uni building Anthropole. Some of you even came up with your own conspiracy theories! Thank you everyone for submitting.
Here you will find all of this semester’s contributions, as well as a beautiful PDF version we have put together just for you. If you are lucky, you might still find one lying around at uni ;).
We hope you enjoy this very special and delightful issue.
