Winners can't stop talking

Last month's Oscar ceremony was so long that even Best Actress winner Halle Berry wanted it to end. Even though the show clocked in at a whopping four hours and 17 minutes, there were just enough surprises to keep everyone entertained. Here are the highlights.

Culture through photos

Wouldn’t it be great if your memories abroad could be vividly shared with those you missed back home?

Have you ever wondered how to create your own bronze sculpture?

Most of us have seen the bronze sculptures around campus, but few actually know the process through which artists created these works. This complicated operation is very labor intensive and takes days to complete, but rewards patient sculptors with a permanent art fixture.

Last semester, first encounter

Forty-five. Yup, that’s right, that’s how many days there are until G-day, Graduation Day, for all you seniors out there in the land of denial. Oh God, oh #@&*! Kind of a scary thought if you ask me. But I think I’m handling things rather well. There have been relatively few full-blown panic attacks despite the fact I still don’t have a clue as to what I’ll be doing next year.

Marotz shares talents across campus

Dave Marotz is not your typical nerd-next-door. More often with glasses than without, this reserved, dimpled, 6-foot-tall Cancer enjoys skiing - both on water and snow - and getting into trouble with the powers that be.

New flick Resident Evil causes screams

Resident Evil easily outscreams recent scary movies. Most horror movies haven’t been noteworthy lately. Such unpopular movies, including Queen of the Damned, were a joke. No one remembers Valentine or Thirteen Ghosts due to the brevity of their popularity. However, what separates Resident Evil from the rest is that this story not only has an intriguing plot, but a good one at that. The movie’s story mixes curiosity with edge-of-your-seat thrills.
