Was the Causus a Cauc-up?

Andrew Hart, Reporter

March 4, 2020

Caucusing is a well known and well loved tradition in Iowa. You get hundreds of politically opposed Iowans, stuff them in a room meant for no more than fifty people, take a vote, wait about an hour, take another vote, and eventually one candidate will rise from the ashes as all the other candidates clai...

Glass – A shattered opportunity?

Seth Bequette, Academics & Arts Editor

March 14, 2019

I’m a bit late for the tea party that is M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Eastrail 177 Trilogy’, though to be fair the first film of this triple play was two years before my time. Despite that and some strange things Shyamalan’s movies have been known for, my interest was piqued by the purple hued thri...

March 14, 2019

When I mention the name “Noname Gypsy”, nothing may come into your mind. Well, it’s about time to change that.

Into the Spider-Verse is impressive and entertaining, a dynamic and visually appealing movie that looks perfect as a three-dimensional version of the offset-printed comics. The story is clever and somewhat complicated. It moves quickly through fun bits that show just how much Miles loves being the su...
