  Black Bear. At VLS, the financial aid people sit you down during your first semester, I think to assess your grip on the reality of your fiscal present and future.   Enter Black Bear Crestfallen, I schlepped my sorry self from my minuscule apartment, across the Village Green toward the coffee shop.
