Barber: Nemo Miller’s “Cry Closet” Helps Students During Finals Week

By Shaelyn Barber

April 25, 2018

During finals week, the library looks like an eerie scene from a horror movie. Students stare out from booths with deep eye-bags and sullen expressions. The fluorescent lights above dimly flicker as the clack of typing fingers echoes down the hall in unison. Steady sobs create a mournful chorus as stu...

There’s something about journalism that brings a thrill. Educating the public, uncovering important truths, traveling, the possibility of danger and more add to the appeal and adrenaline I feel when I think about my future. It will be a good job.

I recently read “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay” by Michael Chabon for class. It’s a book that argues for the artistic and social value of comic books in the 1940s and 1950s. Then and now, many who consider themselves mature and of higher intelligence will claim they have no time...

On March 7, 2017, a statue was put up on Wall Street across from the symbolic Charging Bull. This statue, called “Fearless Girl,” is a simple bronze statue of a little girl, facing the bull, hands on her hips, standing fearlessly. It isn't surprising that certain people, especially the creator...

In 2011, Dutch bio-artist Jalila Essaïdi created an artificial skin that rivaled the U.S. military's invention of bulletproof vests made of synthetic spider silk.
