With finals fast approaching, there has been a noticeable dip in temperatures. The first snow of the season is scheduled to be on Friday, which may provide a much-needed source of scenic relief for those entrenched inside the Brutalist walls of Lau.

Last Flag Flying: A Study of Grief and Patriotism


Fans of director Richard Linklater will no doubt find his latest project to be very satisfying — and very much in line with his previous work.

Ott’s metallic paintings seem to be characterized by their lack of complexity; her aptly titled piece “Gold on Black” refers to a dark canvas interrupted by thin, golden strokes, while “Copper” is a copper backdrop interspersed with flashes of silver.
