Two developers of Wube Software working out of Prague began a campaign on Indiegogo in 2013 to continue work on their game small game Factorio and, within the span of two years, it has found itself featured on Steam’s “Top Sellers.” Reminiscent of early management games like Simcity and the Tycoon series, Factorio...

It’s an eight out of 10. With the future of the DC universe hanging in the balance, many wonder if Batman v Superman can pull the weight of being both a good film and a jumping off point for future films. Director Zack Snyder’s epic blockbuster is a continuation of 2013’s Man of Steel’s, and the end events of that film...

Tomorrow, Frontier Fiesta kicks off — but it might be a rocky start, since this year, the Student Program Boards request of $281,930.00 for concert funds was denied by the Student Fees Advisory Committee. In return, an alternative method was implemented for funding concerts: SPB, Homecoming and Frontier Fiesta were...

Birds chirping entwine with the sound of water raining on the rainforest. I grumble incoherently and turn to my side.

Whether this cliché phrase is cross-stitched into your grandmother’s scratchy sofa cushions or you’ve seen it shared on Facebook alongside a stock photo of a thriving family, the world seems to think that your home is where your heart is — but what does that really mean? As college...

Any student who lives in a campus residence hall is familiar with the “MAP-Works” survey — at the least, they have been reminded of it any number of times by their Resident Advisor. Many students ultimately participate, but without any readily apparent ramifications, many also wonder: to what end? Lin Crowson, the...

For some whose homes are far away from school, the college dorms become their second home — or even first. Living by yourself for the first time is a unique experience, and one that leaves you with freedom and responsibility all wrapped into one. We’ve all been there — designing a small space and attempting to make it...

Finally found a new place? All you have to do is pack your stuff, grab the secret stash of cash you hid and move out. People move in and out all the time, so it has to be simple, right? Moving out can be more stressful than studying for finals. You have to organize your stuff, pack your hundreds of clothes (including...
