Unfortunately for the entire campus, Spring Break has come and gone. Students and professors had their glimpse at sweet, sweet freedom, but then it was ripped away from beneath their feet, leaving them on the floor without the ability to giddy back up again. Instead, it feels like we are crawling toward the finish line with our legs severely broken, arms broken too, using only our teeth to inch on forward. I have done the...

How does an actor, writer, daughter of a Canadian and an engineer dropped in the middle of a small college, by providence, personable in word, become even more of a nerd? By way of Lin-Manuel Miranda. A certified genius based off of his MacArthur Fellowship, his latest popular endeavor: the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton.” I know what you’re thinking, “Sarah, we’re not theatre nerds like you; why would we give a crap about some musical?”...

It’s that time of year again. When a bunch of famous people get together to pat themselves on the back for creating above average movies. My main disappointment with this year’s nominees is that they are predictable and uninspiring. None of the movies that were nominated for several of the major awards truly wowed me, and I think that’s a major issue. Unfortunately, I don’t have any real say in the matter, but I can...

Within the next several months, many shows will be coming back for a new season. And it also that time of the semester when you are trying to forget your troubles because midterms are looming and you are trying to procrastinate in every single way possible. Especially the seniors. We are either in denial that we are graduating in just three months, or we are already checked out and don’t give a crap anymore. I’m...

The original plan was for me to go see either “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” or “Hail, Caesar!” Unfortunately, a little lady called gastroenteritis intervened and I spent my weekend lying on my sofa in  a coma-like state eating crackers and applesauce, hoping that I would have enough energy to change out of my pajamas. Needless to say, I was unable to go to a movie theatre, let alone drag myself further than a three-foot...

Some of you may remember I wrote an article last semester about objectifying men in movies by saying which butts were the butts to rule the cinematic butt kingdom. I know my Mom does. Just yesterday she told me, “For the love of everything that is good in the world, please don’t write another article about butts!” Well, sorry, Mom. It is my journalistic duty to report about what I think is important in society,...

“Sound of Music” jokes aside, the Oscars are facing a serious backlash about the lack of diversity in all of the major categories and nominations. No people of color were nominated for any of the major awards that will be handed out on February 28, aside from “The Revenant” director Alejandro Gonzà¡lez Ià±à¡rritu. Celebrities and common folk alike have sounded an outcry over the lack of diversity in the nominees, even creating the trending hashtag...
