Listen, I just spent an entire weekend with a fake smile plastered on my face for the ProFros, pretending that everything here is perfect when I was actually trying to start and finish a p-set in two hours. I know I wasn’t the only one conning the Class of ‘16; I saw a group of girls tanning in the Oval, casually laying on a Stanford flag instead of an actual towel (?!) with Cardinal-colored bikinis on (?!?!), as if this is something that happens in real life. So my reality check on Sunday when I stood in the line at Coupa to spend my 21st dollar on coffee in three days was not the happiest. Stanford is incredible, don’t get me wrong, but there are a couple things that some of us might like to see to make campus life a little easier.
Last night, thousands of Stanford students enjoyed the “Welcome Home Fest,” which drew students to many programs across campus.
Tonight, Stanford will make a change to the traditional New Student Orientation calendar with the “Welcome Home Fest,” a series of activities in which new and returning students will be able to participate.
Everyone loves a comeback kid, and as literally the only Disney star who can carry a tune, let alone sing, Demi Lovato has everyone rooting for her after a long year of personal battles. Her third album, "Unbroken," isn't quite perfect, but it's good enough to satisfy the masses while remaining true to her original sound.
However, the duo let their album, “Watch The Throne,” talk, and what it’s saying is that the two masterminds might just be as good together as they are apart.
“Here I Am,” the latest work by R&B singer Kelly Rowland, is the perfect example of how crucial a role the producers, not the artist, play.
The soundtrack for “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” arguably the most anticipated movie of our generation, has been as important as the film itself. Fans expected the best of the final movie, and fortunately, composer Alexandre Desplat rose valiantly to the occasion, creating a nearly perfect soundtrack for an equally magnificent visual extravaganza.
Since her debut in 2007, Colbie Caillat has come to epitomize the carefree style often associated with Southern California artists.
Beyonce seems to take the road less traveled, masterfully exploring the themes of both individualism and romance in what proves to be a more nuanced and sophisticated collection than her previous work.
The title of their second full-length studio album, “Sorry for Party Rocking,” reveals the same; LMFAO came to bring a 60-minute barrage of electro-pop to overstimulate their already sweaty, dancing target audience.
Whether you’re looking for a new take on a childhood classic or the highly-anticipated end to an epic saga, the summer 2011 releases promise to offer a healthy mix of good and bad for your viewing pleasure.
Though the show is somewhat of a mixed bag of tricks, with certain skits delivering better punchlines than others, the overall spectacle is hilarious and undoubtedly worth an hour of time.
