Much like the hotties in this issue, we’ve had to take good care of ourselves to make it to where we are today. Inspired by Psych
KOURTNEY and the Good Life’s “hack yo’ self ” project, Rumpus has taken up a strict regimen of hot yoga, cold-pressed juices, and frequent

As STEM majors, we RumpDaddies love some good, quantitative data. This issue has 25 women, 24 men, and one Whim. From our statisti-
cal analysis, we have concluded that Yale Men need to focus more on their unibrows. We had to do a lot of retouching in Photoshop because here at
Rumpus, we’re all for unrealistic body standards! 50 Most Drinking Game: take a shot for every man you think we de-browed. Hint: there are four.

The hottest college this year, with NINE 50 Mosters, is everyone’s favorite plantation, Davenport. Followed closely by the snakes of JE, with
seven hotties. Pauli Murray received zero ZERO zero 50 Mosters, making it one of the ugliest colleges in Yale’s history. Ben Franklin only received 1,
which just goes to show that the New Colleges are objectively the worst. And that’s science.

Nine first years made it into the issue. Sophomores and Juniors tied for first place, each raking in SEVENTEEN 50 Mosters. The washed-up
senior class only contributed six this year...probably because they’ve had the most time to wrong us here at Rumpus.

20% of our 50 Mosters are members of the Fence Club. Call nepotism all you want, but that’s one hot group of Mio addicts. Guess smoking
