‘Little Shop of Horrors’ fails to reflect traditional black roles

The UTC Tympanium Euphorium production of “Little Shop of Horrors” premiered the same weekend as the Ford Hall 2015 sit-in began. It seemed almost ironic that a whitewashed production shared the weekend spotlight with a protest advocating for racial inclusion. Although “Little Shop” was met with rave reviews, something seemed a little off to me. […]

A shallow misconception

Just across the George Washington Bridge in New York City is a little old place known as Long Island. Much more than just an entity of New York, Long Island is home to the suburbs, the beaches, the soccer moms and most importantly, some of the best school districts in the country. From September to […]

The time has come for Brandeis to divest from fossil fuels

We at Brandeis Climate Justice are excited about the increased steps to reduce Brandeis’ carbon footprint, such as the hiring of Mary Fischer, the formation of the sustainability task force and the Turn It Off Days. All the same, we feel this university can and must do much more in the global struggle against climate […]

Divesting from Saudi Arabia just as effective as fossil fuel divestment

Brandeis Climate Justice (BCJ) has a noble goal. In their overarching desire to reverse the harm that has been done to the climate since the start of the Industrial Revolution, activists have called on the university to divest from fossil fuel companies. While other universities, most notably Stanford and the University of California system, have […]

Don’t overstress for finals

Finals season is back, along with its associated sense of panic and worry. To say it is a stressful time would very much be an understatement. It is a period where the sale of caffeinated beverages probably skyrockets as total hours slept dwindles. Although exam and paper preparation can be exhausting, we paradoxically intensify these […]

Men’s soccer falls to Trinity in Sweet 16

The men’s soccer team began their NCAA Division III tournament journey at home over the weekend. The Judges entered the tournament ranked third in Division III soccer according to the NCAA website. The team has been preparing for the NCAA tournament for quite some time though. Senior captain Conor Lanahan ’16 reports that the “coaches […]

Brandeis Television spreads visual media over the airwaves

Much of Brandeis media centers around written periodicals like the newspapers, leaving Brandeis Television (BTV) out of the mix. BTV provides students with a television outlet that focuses on student life as well as featured stories. Because BTV uses visual media to project its message, its members can achieve great cohesion between the club and […]

Tympanium Euphorium makes its mark through musical theater

Every semester, a poster goes up advertising for a production by the theater group Tympanium Euphorium, commonly known as Tymp. Tympanium Euphorium means ‘happy ear,’ because the group specializes in musicals, which certainly make for happy listening. Officially recognized by the Student Union on Feb. 7, 2001, Tympanium is led by President Sarai Warsoff ’16. […]
