“Here and Nowhere Else” shines Reply

Natalie Kfoury Co-Editor-In-Chief

If any band is deserving of your attention right now, it’s Cloud Nothings. The three-piece alternative rock band with indie, lo-fi, and noise influences is nothing but strong, fresh, and skilled in what they do so well. With 2014’s “Here and Nowhere Else,” the band proves they are a force to be reckoned with and one of the strongest bands out there. This band will be huge.

“Here and Nowhere Else” is Cloud Nothing’s third LP.

with so much, but they have always lacked something. Philosophy. More…

Whether or not you care about them, you most likely heard about this year’s Academy Awards. You probably heard about how beautiful and great Jared Leto looked, how many awards “Gravity” won, what Jennifer Lawrence wore, and Ellen Degeneres took selfies with and ordered pizza for the stars in the audience.  More…

Lasell opens doors to gender neutral housing Reply

Natalie Kfoury – Co-Editor-in-Chief

Lasell College will offer gender neutral housing for the Fall 2014 semester. The decision was a joint effort between Student Government Association (SGA) and Residential Life. The option is open to students who feel uncomfortable living with genders they do not identify with or who are transgender.

Junior Class President Brianna Robbins worked on this proposal since her freshman year, collaborating with various people from SGA and Residential Life. “This is a great option against discrimination as our school is so diverse in gender identification,” said Robbins.  More…
