At the beginning of the year, I was introduced to the Marlborough Don’ts, a code of etiquette written by Mary Caswell herself. The UV staff has decided to choose a few of these rules this year and reflect on how they relate to the Marlborough community over 100 years after they were written.
At Marlborough, it is hard to find a place where you cannot hear a shrill laugh followed by even more giggles. Sometimes while I am at my locker, I cannot even hear the bell ring over the loud hellos and frantic questions about homework. While the community no longer correlates volume control with intelligence, perhaps we should maybe tone it down every once in a while? Laughter is the best medicine, but it won’t get you an A.
