Heck Yeah, Stern Can Dance!

Stern Dance

If you’re still wondering if Stern students can dance, then you definitely haven’t seen the show.

I’m cramped in between strangers in a small, dark venue by the name of Webster Hall. My face is shoved into random armpits as I desperately try to grasp my friends’ hands so they don’t slip away. Neon ensemble drenched in sweat, pushing my way to the the front as aggressively as a small female […]

South Park has always been a refreshingly hilarious take on reality and current events, and they continued that ability, managing to present the ridiculous narrative of presidential election for viewers while remaining bipartisan.

Indignation, an adaptation of the novel by Philip Roth, delivers.

The 6th season of Shameless was a wild ride for the viewers, and it’s going to be tough to find another show to quench our thirst until it comes back for its 7th season. For those that don’t watch the show, the focus is the dysfunctional Gallagher family that lives in the projects of Chicago. […]

The first blog I became familiar with was a fictional blog; meaning, the author behind it was Jenna, the main character on the MTV show Awkward. The blog, “I Am Jenna”, essentially served as the narration of the show and pushed the plot forward. It was a personal blog filled with all her awkward anecdotes, […]

I’ve never been that person who chooses Miami Beach—the classic Jewish destination—for winter break. Usually, I enjoy escaping the Jewish Bubble for a while. I hadn’t been back since the elementary school days, but this year, my heritage finally lured me back to where I belonged. Like everyone else, my friends and I longed to […]
