Interview with Wynn Alexander About the Spring Production of Early Dark

Q: What made you want to do this play? A: I’ve known about this play for a long time and always wanted to do it. I think it’s full of characters that relate to college students. Going through family issues, friendships, peer pressure, death, everything. Q: How do you come up with different workshops during auditions? A: Every play is different. I want to get people comfortable enough to be more creative but still competitive. I want to design [the Wilmington College production] around how the play is set up….

BSI Plans To See Black Panther Movie, Milestone for African American Community

Guns, gangs, and violence are three themes typically seen in movies with an African American as the main character. However, Marvel precisely abandoned these themes when creating the highly anticipated Black Panther. Not only does the new superhero movie include a predominately African American cast, but also women essentially drawing in two very large crowds. Since this movie is such a milestone for the African American community, Wilmington College’s Black Student Initiative (BSI) thought it would be a good idea to attend a viewing of the movie as a group….

There will be activities all week long that will promote kindness and hospitality – don’t…

“Why Did He Like Her Picture on Instagram?”: Social Media and Relationships

“Why did he like her picture on Instagram?” We have all heard this question from a friend while listening to passing conversations, or more embarrassingly, we’ve said it ourselves. Twitter, Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram have become a vital part of our everyday lives: scrolling through social media has basically become the 21st Century version of reading the morning newspaper. Social media in turns puts a lot of pressure on modern-day relationships. However, I am not an expert and this all based off of my observations. Jealousy is part of every…

Valentine’s Day Gifts on a Budget

One of the many things that women pride ourselves on is our ability to successfully give gifts. Birthdays and Christmas, especially Valentine’s Day. We love being romantic towards our partners whether they appreciate it or not. Men on the other hand, always struggle, telling their friends, “My girlfriend is so hard to shop for!” While for some this is true, most appreciate all gifts, especially the simple ones. We see the love and thought put into the gift, not the money. The problem: men always think that women need extravagant…

In N Out of Sleep

As college students, we try to sleep as much as we can wherever we can (although life would probably be better if we didn’t fall asleep at 2 a.m. and know we have an 8 a.m. in the next morning). When we wake up it never seems to be enough sleep, which means we hit snooze, and we take naps that range from 2 minutes to a few hours. Hitting the snooze button has its downfalls to your sleep cycle, it can mess up how your body registers the cycle…
