I’ve grown a lot during the past few years at college. I’ve gained and lost interest in a fair share of things that used to mean a lot to me. Case in point: awards season. It was only two years ago that I wrote an article for The Quad about the Oscars, and looking back, I may have been losing...

Whether you are a Beyoncé fan, an Adele fan or both, there was no denying that Adele’s acceptance speech was everything and more when she won a Grammy for Album of the Year last Sunday, Feb 19.

On Sunday, Feb. 5, the Falcons faced the Patriots in Super Bowl LI. Even though the game did turn out to be quite interesting, the halftime show isn’t something to gloss over.

Now, I’m usually not fond of country music, so I might not be the best person to review “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” nominated for two 2017 Grammy Awards: Best Country Album and Album of the Year.

For a filmmaker who’s more commonly known as a fashion industry demigod, Tom Ford, who made his directorial debut with 2009’s “A Single Man,” has returned after several years with his neo-noir, quasi-western sophomore outing “Nocturnal Animals.” Such a hiatus makes sense, considering Ford...
