Readers mix laughter and intensity at final SRS

May 2, 2007 James Queally 0

This semester’s final edition of the Student Reading Series included ad-libs about the writers, one writer being damned to hell during his introduction, the entire crowd rising to take a picture while making ludicrous facial expressions and a reference to projectile vomit. […]

Bright Eyes: Have they ‘gone country’?

Bright Eyes

“Cassadaga”

4.5 out of 5 stars

In his most recent work, “Cassadaga,” Bright Eyes frontman and principal singer/songwriter Connor Oberst has created a body of songs that, in true folk rock tradition, epitomize conflicted American existence in times of social tumult. […]

Professor by day, filmmaker by night

The political science department of the College may seem like an unlikely place to find an independent filmmaker. However, William Ball, professor of political science, has been creating short films since 2003.

The Signal has been a part of my life since the very beginning of freshman year. As time passed, it devoured more and more of my time every week.

This semester, I’ve probably spent an average of 14 hours in our office each Monday and Tuesday. Add that to the significant amount of time spent here on Sundays and Wednesdays, and I realize that an entire day of every week is spent in the dungeon, whose defining characteristics include no windows, a squishy couch, slow computers and days-old Italian food strewn about everywhere.
