According to Kathleen Ragan, director of Student Financial Services, last year the College spent $400,000 on processing fees for Visa cards after the company implemented a new policy increasing the fees that in past years were covered with money from student tuitions. […]

December 8, 2004 Daniela Flores 0

For many students at the College, the most strenuous form of exercise they get is running to class. Some probably have not even run a mile since fitness testing in high school and most of us could never even imagine running a marathon, but that’s just what Daniel Adami, junior mechanical engineering major, did last month. […]

December 8, 2004 Matthew K. Fair 0

The task of recording a follow-up to Interpol’s debut album, 2002’s “Turn on the Bright Lights,” must have been daunting to the young band. Their premiere was very close to a masterpiece.

I went to see “Closer” this past weekend, thinking that it would be a light movie, possibly mixed with some troubling romance. When I heard someone compare the film to “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” I thought he was surely mistaken.
