I don’t know about you, but I have never appreciated Fall Break more than I do right now.

Perhaps it was because I went on vacation instead of just going home for the first time in four years.

Captain Phillips

Review: "Captain Phillips"

“Captain Phillips” is a true story. It is one man’s very real and very horrible experience translated into a film that’s now predicted to be an Oscars front-runner.

Letter 04.21.16

So, guess what? This is the last issue of Street for the semester. And, while that may good news for some (looking at you, victims of the RoundUp and presidents of Greek organizations), it’s a little more complicated for me.

On the one hand, I have made it through an entire semester doing a job that is incredibly challenging, time consuming and draining.

Living Our Lives in Film: Emily Johns

When I was a kid I attended the Waldorf School in Chicago. Waldorf schools are small private schools that exist in various parts of the country and focus on arts and a very specific method of education—they do not teach you how to read until about third grade—and they have been described by a few online articles as “cultish.” Part of the curriculum is the very specific requirement that students do not watch any TV or movies at home, a requirement that some families chose to follow.

Letter from the Editor 09.08.2016
