On April 3 students gathered in deWitt Hall to view “Botanical Lands,” a student-run mini-fashion show presented by the Fashion Production class. Proceeds from the event went to the charity Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization that provides birthday parties for homeless children.

“A Quiet Place” was written and directed by “The Office” star John Krasinski, who also starred in the film.
Characters played by himself and his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, raise three kids in a post-alien apocalypse. Their eldest child, played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf. Because of this, the family is well-versed in sign language. The alien creatures don’t have eyes; they have strong hearing that can detect any loud sound. Therefore, the family moves slowly and tiptoes everywhere that isn’t white sand laid down to muffle their footsteps.

Lasell College Drama Club presented “Radium Girls” on April 5, 6, and 8 in Yamawaki Auditorium. The show tells the story of the young dial painters in New Jersey who started dying from ‘radium jaw.’ During the time period the show is set in, radium was thought to be the cure-all to everything.
“Radium Girls” had a minimal set (all black with rustic clock faces and gears), but the show relied on the passionate and dramatic performances of the students. Photo by Danielle Hogan

Thirty Seconds to Mars’s fifth album “America” springs out multiple messages of activism and religious imagery throughout its verses. However, the album succeeds where others don’t; the band doesn’t allow their cries of hope to overshadow the strong quality of their music.
