They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. It would have been nice if this article about Saturday night’s Step It Up and Dance performance could have been accompanied by photos – I even brought a camera with me to the Concert Hall and everything. Sadly, an accident took place involving some absentmindedness, a purse, and a water bottle that tends to spring leaks. So you’ll have to make do with a thousand words as I try my best to describe what Step It Up and Dance looked like.

The Shout blog has a tradition that when a senior blogger is about to graduate, he or she writes a post passing on words of wisdom to the younger generation. It seems that time really does fly when you're having fun. I could have sworn that it was only three or four weeks ago that I was having my orientation meeting down at Web Services Group to start this job, but really it's been four year. I'm a senior now. And it's my turn to pass on the words of wisdom.

Spring term 2010 must be the season for exciting and unusual comps presentations. Last week, the John Mawhorter ’10 of the CAMS department held this talk: “I designed a videogame for my comps. There are guns in it. And explosions.”
Doesn’t that just make you wish you were a CAMS major?

Last week’s Arena dance performance, BASTE, didn't open with the usual introduction explaining who was going to be dancing and what they were going to do. Instead, the lights dimmed and a dancer appeared on the stage with a copy of the program. Then another dancer came along and they fought over it.

“Promiscuous Monkey Sex: Why Everybody Benefits.” That title may have been the reason so many people came to Anatasha Plummer ‘10’s biology comps talk last week. The other title she considered using, “Facultative Cooperative Polyandry in Callitrichidae,” doesn’t have quite the same, well, draw.

No, this is not an article about the Carleton Spelling Bee, it's an article about the wonderful play Eleemosynary (which has a spelling bee in it).

“Outside the Lines,” the new art exhibit that opened last week in Boliou, is unique: none of the students featured there are art majors.
