My Senior Bucket List

It’s happening. The moment I have waited for since I got to this campus in the first place. *drum roll please* GRADUATION IS HERE!    I have traveled through the five stories of stacks in the library, I have pulled a few all-nighters against my will, I have deliberately procrastinated until I could no longer […]

Designer of the Week: Brandford Kudowor

 Suc-cess: the fact of getting or achieving wealth, respect or fame. If this is what the world considers success, Merriam Webster might want to rethink its definition.  When Brandford Kudowor considers what success means, it’s more about the journey rather than the destination. If that’s the case, Kudowor is overly qualified in the success category. Not only […]

Twelfth Night: Review

Last night was the first of the last “Sneak Peek” shows I will ever attend during my college career. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew what the play was called, and I definitely knew Shakespeare had something to do with it. I’ve heard before that “Twelfth Night” is supposed to […]

Do you know what a “bedroom burrito” is? Have you ever considered rape culture from a man’s […]

Apparel Design Students Showcase Work

With so much stress circulating in the sewing lab, you could cut the tension with a knife. “Things are pretty hectic right now,” said an anxious senior designer, Hanna Clegg. “There is so much going on, it’s like the deadlines of all deadlines. We need to get all of our final looks prepared and time […]

“It’s Stupid Good.”

Walking into The Wine Nest it’s hard not to fall in love instantly. There’s home decor-galore on just about every surface of the floor plan, you can smell an abundance of candles waiting to be selected, there’s at least one hundred kinds of chocolate welcoming you at the door, and that’s not even the best part. […]

Have You Registered For The HUD Tournament?

Raider Red’s Awesome Dance Spectacular: Review

It never ceases to amaze me how people move through dance. Whenever I watch dancers perform, their movements can be so methodical, edgy, swift and graceful — not to mention they make it look so flawless. “So there’s this dancer that wants to get into clown school, but she doesn’t get in,” she said. “Then, […]
