Student Blog: Uncovering Spooky Secrets
June 17, 2021

Well friends, the time has finally come. BuzzFeed Unsolved, the beloved series starring Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej, is coming to an end. Ever since 2016, this show has been a source of great memes, fascinating stories, and of course, dozens of unsolved mysteries both mundane and supernatural. For this article, I had the special opportunity to speak with the two “ghoulboys” about the series and how YouTube as a whole can be used as a platform for performance. We talked about the growth of the series, fan interactions, and even the legendary series known as the Hot Daga. Let’s jump right into it!

Well, it's official - Broadway is coming back! So many of us have been waiting for this moment when our social media feeds are filled with announcements about shows reopening and new ticket policies.

Student Blog: When the Curtain Rises

Student Blog: “Hush, Just Stop!” - Not Everything Needs to Be A Musical
March 10, 2021

The Queen’s Gambit has been one of my favorite shows of 2021. And after watching it, I can safely say that Beth Harmon is not the type of character who would sing out her feelings. She’s introverted, a young girl dealing with mental health issues in the harsh spotlight of the chess world.
