This year’s Relay for Life proves to be Ferris’ most successful one yet

by Published: Apr 9, 2014

The 12-hour buzz of fundrais­ing activ­ity that is Relay For Life returned to Ferris’ cam­pus on April 4 and 5. This year’s event raised $34,765.81, a Ferris Relay record.

The sched­ule for Relay For Life, an American Cancer Society fundraiser hosted annu­aly at Ferris by Colleges Against Cancer, was ini­tially dis­rupted by a youth hockey tour­na­ment. This, how­ever, didn’t stop Colleges Against Cancer co-president John Letherer and his E-board from get­ting the event back on track. (more…)

by Published: Apr 9, 2014

One of the sta­ples of the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance’s spring Pride Week is the drag show, which allows stu­dents to com­pete among pro­fes­sional drag artists.

As the end to the spring Pride Week, DSAGA’s annual drag show is meant to end the week with a cel­e­bra­tion of gay culture.

Tim Mulligan, the win­ner of the “Miss Hot Crimson” award for best drag per­for­mance at last year’s show, said what he liked best about per­form­ing was that it gave him the chance to become another per­son for one night. (more…)

Modern Love

Be better than your breakup

by Published: Apr 9, 2014

Eventually, all good things must end. After a breakup, we feel vul­ner­a­ble, sad and maybe a lit­tle wild with the new­found free­dom. When you’re fresh out of a rela­tion­ship, always remem­ber the fol­low­ing rules of breakup etiquette.

Every time you think of your ex, don’t call or text him or her. I’m sure he or she would love to hear what brings back mem­o­ries, but please, refrain from telling your ex. The two of you need space, not to be think­ing of each other all the time. (more…)


A Modern Greek Tragedy

Cast of “Ajax in Iraq” discusses the play’s treatment of social issues

by Published: Apr 2, 2014

Whereas Ferris’ fall pro­duc­tion of “Spamalot” was clas­sic comedic fare, upcom­ing mil­i­tary drama “Ajax in Iraq” will, accord­ing to the cast, leave audi­ences speechless.

“[Director Katherine LaPietra] tends to go very fun one play and very seri­ous another play,” crim­i­nal jus­tice junior Georgina D’Hondt, who plays co-lead of A.J., said. “Like last year; we had ‘Legally Blonde’… and then we had ‘The Best Man.’” (more…)


Turn Up the Good

Concert seeks to introduce students to smaller, local acts

by Published: Apr 2, 2014

As music indus­try stu­dents pre­pare for Turn Up the Good, they aren’t feel­ing too much pressure.

“If it’s down to the wire and it feels like crunch time, that’s usu­ally a bad sign,” said Dan Cronk, the coor­di­na­tor for the music indus­try man­age­ment pro­gram. “We don’t have that feel­ing, so I’d say it’s going as well as it should.” (more…)


Campus Pride

LGBT community to celebrate Pride Week on campus

by Published: Apr 2, 2014

Pride Week at Ferris is an eye-opening expe­ri­ence for many stu­dents, but for music indus­try man­age­ment senior Krystle Karnofsky, it’s been much more than that.

Karnofsky, Treasurer of Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance (DSAGA), will attend her fifth and final Pride Week at Ferris. DSAGA and pre­vi­ous years’ Pride Weeks have shown Karnofsky how much peo­ple can grow after attend­ing events and learn­ing more about the LGBT com­mu­nity. They have inspired Karnofsky to accept her­self and helped her grow expo­nen­tially as an indi­vid­ual, as well. (more…)


Modern Love

Have you ever been on a date and the guy didn’t offer to pay? Has a girl ever pre­sump­tively slid the check over to you?

We’ve all been there at some point. Besides clu­ing me in to the fact your bank account is prob­a­bly a sorry sight, it also shows you’re not a very kind or respect­ful per­son. What hap­pened to chivalry, or even com­mon cour­tesy? (more…)
