Film screening of “The River Why” promotes conversation, clean-up

It began with a book. A friend had given senior Karen Barbee a copy of David James Duncan’s The River Why. Once finished with the bestselling novel, Barbee set about securing a movie version, and the Internet revealed that an independent narrative feature film with the same name was making its way to a number of little festivals across the country. It had yet to be released to the masses. “On a whim, I talked to Cooper Arbios to try to get it to campus. He suggested I call the...

Expy and Source offer local yoga class for all skill levels

According to Yoga Journal, yoga has become America’s fastest growing form of exercise. Around 15 million people practice, which is a 225 percent increase since 2001.

Puget Sound currently has 31 teams set to participate in Relay for Life on...

Too Many Sopranos

Veteran choir singers know all too well that the presence of “too many sopranos” is a familiar dilemma to coed groups the world over. Since most men are not necessarily so inclined to participate in choir, this problem often arises from having too many women. Puget Sound’s joint venture of the School of Music and the Theater department deals with a choir of a different caliber: the Heavenly Chorus. The first act of this comic opera begins when four Divas (sopranos) ascend to Heaven, only to find that there is...

Spring break breakdown

What is that? Springtime is in the air? Well, at least March is in the air, which means spring break is nearing for the students at Puget Sound. This also means professors are strategically planning their lesson plans to have a paper due when students return, and said students will likely not have it done until the Sunday before class starts again. However, before the work is to be done there are adventures to be had. Some are venturing home, and some around the world. “I’m going to Belize and...
