Mads Turns Two! Big Announcements...

Today is Mads Vassar's second birthday! The site has been through a lot of changes in content and design since 2007, which we hope better suit the Vassar community and all of our readers.

Last week we reached half a million site visits, which is incredible. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying the site. We do it for YOU! We had 40,000 more visits this year than the previous year.

Now for some big announcements...

First, Mads has taken on Vassar Munch, which had been up for grabs since its founder graduated in May. The Munch is your source for news about food on the Vassar campus, and most importantly, where and when you can get free food. Follow the Munch on Twitter to get the latest updates. We'll also make it a feature on this site.

Our other big announcement is that we are looking for writers! Mads is going abroad next semester and we want to keep the site going. If you're interested or want to find out more about what the job entails, email with a few sentences about why you're interested and what writing/blogging experience you have. Please include your contact information. No experience necessary and you must be a current Vassar student to apply. This is unpaid.

We have one more big announcement, which we'll announce on Friday afternoon. Check back then.

Again, readers, thanks for another amazing year. Thanks especially to those of you who sent us tips and stories. We couldn't do this without you! Let us know how we're doing by emailing And for the latest updates, follow us on Twitter!

xoxo Mads
