Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. Or as I like to call it, Hallmark Appreciation Day. It’s the one day of the year where greeting card, flower and chocolate sales skyrocket, and a dinner reservation is tougher to get than a Bruins ticket. But is this “day of love” all that necessary? In a word, no. More…

When walking across the Lasell campus Sean Bertanza didn’t look like a star basketball player. Usually wearing sweatpants, his New York Yankee beanie, and sporting a lumberjack-like beard he looked more like a homeless man than the captain of the men’s hoops team.
He also didn’t act like the star. He wasn’t arrogant and he didn’t brag. Instead he was just Sean: a laid back prankster who always had fun and made time for everyone who was important in his life.

Writing obituaries is a part of journalism. In a journalism class my professor even made us write a fictional obituary about ourselves. It was a fun project designed to get us to learn the art of writing about someone’s life.
Papers such as “The Boston Globe” and “The New York Times” are filled each day with obituaries, many of whom are people who died of old age.
When a college newspaper has to run an obituary, the situation is always much more sad. More…

“How was your break?” If I had a nickel for every time I heard that the first week back this semester, I could pay off tuition. For anyone who is actually interested, my winter break was decent. The big activity I did over the month off wasn’t New Year’s, nor was it Christmas. It wasn’t traveling or seeing friends.
