Arts Review: Corinne May Botz

I don’t usually do things on campus because I’m most likely busy working, doing homework, or drawing, but while looking through my emails, I saw one of the “This week at Lesley” announcements, and decided to click on it. While looking through it I noticed something that caught my attention: an artist and photographer, Corinne… Read More ›

Music Review: Ariana Grande

I’ve been following Ariana Grande’s career since she was the bright, bubbly redhead Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon’s Victorious. I remember hearing her sing for the first time on the show with her co-star Liz Gillies, and I was blown away by what I heard. Her voice was angelic and unique and she could hit high… Read More ›

Album Review: Crywolf “Skeletons”

Typing away, I’m doing my homework in bed like always, the regular routine. My headphones are buried in my ears, because music is the only way I can truly focus on what I’m doing. By now my Spotify playlist has been exhausted of all its songs, and it begins suggesting random songs; and I stop… Read More ›

Creative Writing Major Enjoys Presentation by V.E. Schwab

There are very few authors who I would confidently dedicate my entire life to reading only their books forever and never waver in that declaration; Victoria Schwab is one of them.

Why not try west coast swing dancing with The Dancing Fools? Dance can be incredibly beneficial to people of… Read More ›

Our Picks and Predictions for Oscar Night

When I was younger, I never really thought much of the Oscars. My mom always kept it on to watch the girls walk the red carpet in their pretty dresses and then quickly changed the channel once the awards portion of the night actually got started. My dad would wait and see if this year’s… Read More ›

Before Joining “Ladies First,” Lesley Student Once Sang the National Anthem at Fenway Park

[Editor’s Note:  Lesley’s all female a cappella group “Ladies First” recently gave its final performance of the semester, before an enthusiastic audience.  But several years ago, one of the members of the group sang for an entirely different audience:  baseball fans at Fenway Park.  She looks back on that amazing experience.] As the last few… Read More ›

Music Review: Danny Brown “Atrocity Exhibition”

When alt-rockers Nine Inch Nails and Joy Division and jazz giant Miles Davis are given nods in a hip-hop album, one cannot help but become intrigued by an unlikely crossover. Enter the enigmatic Danny Brown, Detroit based emcee, someone with a delightfully tortured soul. “Atrocity Exhibition”, an experimental work revolving around the themes of mental… Read More ›
