Vaginas of the world unite

A large vagina smiles at the groups of people making their way into the lobby of the Digital Library Auditorium. Irene Hernandez stands by with a Polaroid camera, offering to take a picture of these audience members and the large smiling vagina. Some smile and refuse, but many nod their heads, and cuddle up close to the friendly vagina.

‘Love U’ not ready to graduate

There are times when a trip to the theater is an uplifting and exciting experience. Sadly the University of Redlands’s April 5 production of “Love U” did not provide such an experience. Produced in partnership with Riverside City College’s department of performing arts and the Riverside school for the arts, “Love U” is the story of a stuffy academic who falls in love with a wild performance artist.

Tigers show racing stripes

The Tigers were feeling the spirit of racing on March 28. The runners are all in a state conference. Long jumper Kevin Rodgers has become first in state, leaping 24 feet 10 inches. “It’s a great season,” Rodgers said. “I couldn’t expect anything better.” Kevin has been running since the eighth grade, so he understands the process of practice.

The path to the NFL Draft

The April 21-22 draft is fast approaching, the day many college players have been waiting their whole lives for, the day when their lives will change for ever. In the era of guaranteed contracts, a player drafted in the first of the drafts seven rounds will make millions of dollars before even stepping on the field.

No longer lost in translation

Instructor Takashi Suzuki likes baseball. His favorite baseball team is Japanese team Chunichi (The Dragons). Inside his office in the basement of the Quad, Suzuki is surrounded by a set of KFC International figurines, a porcelain cartoonish baseball statue, and various photos of relatives and friends.

Looking for a ‘Reason’

Nothing is more essential to life than water, food, and, of course, punk rock. At least one would assume that this is what Pennywise and their ninth studio album, “Reason To Believe,” would want to convey. Of course, this is not the usual album release for the well established band.
