Point-Counterpoint: “Aporia” poorly timed and unsatisfying release

The indie rock artist’s new album is cinematic but pointlessly optimistic for listeners in a bleak time. I’ll be square with you, I only like Sufjan Stevens some of the time. I loved “Carrie and Lowell,” but I still can’t make it all the way through “Silver and Gold.” Unfortunately, Stevens’s most recent album, “Aporia” […]

Films in 2019 striking but snubbed in award shows

The top 10 films of 2019 prove memorable and innovative. Every year, when considering my top ten list, I organize it based off of a theme. Sometimes it’s the films I think are objectively the best of the year; sometimes it’s what I enjoyed the most. This year my list is organized around what has […]

Celebrity Attractions presents “Les Miserables” at PAC

The traveling Broadway production of “Les Miserables” demonstrates the virtuosity of performers and set designers. I first saw “Les Miserables” in the early spring of 2009, when Union High-School put on a production of it. I was nine years old, the perfect age to watch “Les Mis” for the first time.

Course evals used by professors, administration

Professors read and reflect on their course evaluations, which are used in determining their eligibility for tenure. Your student course evaluations matter more than you might expect. According to Dr. Teresa Reed, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, course evaluations are a portion of what is considered for a tenured professor, an […]

Death Cab for Cutie gives unemotional concert

Opening act My Brightest Diamond performed with surprising vivacity while Death Cab seemed tired. I was really looking forward to the Death Cab for Cutie concert that played on April 4 at Cain’s Ballroom. I got there at 7:00 and stood a respectable four heads away from Ben Gibbard’s face. If I have one thing […]

#11: Improve safety in U.S. West lot

Preventative measures must be taken to make the U.S. West parking lot safer for pedestrians. Picture this: It’s 9 a.m. on a Tuesday and you are strolling happily to class from your apartment that, while kind of nice, is still furnished by college students. You maybe have headphones in, you’re humming along to a song […]

For the first time ever in my college career, I had a class this semester with a professor who didn’t tolerate cell phones. I mean this in the most extreme of senses: like, point-blank would call people out for using their phone in any […]
