All in all, the only problem with Massive Talent was that it wasn’t wild enough!

It’s crazy how much changes in a year. Last April in a Zoom breakout room, we found out that we would be leading The News-Letter through its next chapter.

It’s almost spring in Baltimore, and the sun has started to ward away the chill winds. Now, I can sit in Keyser Quad and read my favorite books on the weekends.
You can never go wrong with pizza. Sure, fine pizza is fine, but great pizza is fantastic. I’ve been looking for great pizza in Baltimore for a long time. I can’t resort to Papa John’s anymore – I’ve gotten to the point where I think: where else can they stuff extra cheese or bacon? If you are like me, tired of gross, heavy pizzas and looking for a great pie, stop by Iggies Pizza on N. Calvert Street.

The initiative hopes that it will connect existing centers of study at the University to build a major and minor. Students majoring in CDS would have the opportunity to focus in specific areas of study, such as Asian-American and Pacific Islander Studies, Indigenous Studies or Latinx/Latiné Studies.
Darkness, solitude and the echoes of hyenas shrouded me, trapping me inside the tent where I sat, overwhelmed by the past events of my trip to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It was 3 a.m., and I could not stop scratching my head. I was wearing three pounds of hair extensions that had not been washed in almost half a week.
