    Gainesville’s Asian Sensations

    Winter Break To-Do List

    An oldie but a goodie, this article, by Kelli Eichorn, was originally published on Dec. 9, 2013. I’m sure the stress of finals has kicked in. Everyone is dying to go home and sleep for an eternity, but after a few days, being home will become excruciatingly boring and you will turn to Twitter to complain about how “there’s literally nothing to ...

    Asshole and Hero of the Week

    Although we love to view the world in absolutes, things are seldom black and white. Heroes have skeletons in their closets and assholes secretly donate money to the ASPCA commercials with Sarah McLachlan. Okay, maybe not. But the point is that the world is a complex place, full of moral ambiguity, double standards and mixed feelings. So we have taken it upon ourselves ...

    Thinking About About Law School? Think Again

    At 6 foot 3 and 330 pounds, Brock Seng commands attention. His powerful presence would lend itself well to the courtroom, which is where he envisioned himself someday as an attorney. But Seng, a journalism senior at the University of Florida, has changed his mind and veered from the legal path. Statistics show he isn’t the only one. Enrollment to law schools ...

    Culture Your Fu**ing Self

    There are two approaches to spending your time in this complex enigma of a town called Gainesville. You can complain that “there’s nothing to do” and drown your sorrows in a sub-par 3-4-1 Long Island at Cantina every night or you can embrace your precious time here in Hogtown and go explore.

    There’s More to Life than Finals

    This is Finals Week. A week where we are meant to be studying for the most important exams of the semester. “Finals Week” is a notorious title that carries the connotation of six days of procrastination combined with cramming upon the seventh day. And what better way to waste those six precious days than inside the rabbit hole that is YouTube? During this ...

    Twitter Accounts to Help You Cope During Finals

    It’s finals week, which means you’ll spend more time trying to study than actually studying. If you’re anything like me, “trying to study” means spending hours in the library and procrastinating by taking Buzzfeed quizzes with titles like “What part of Taylor Swift’s Blank Space video are you?” and trolling your friends’ Facebook posts from 2009. In an attempt to stay awake ...

    Let’s Talk about Sex, Baby

    There are a few guaranteed things you’ll have to navigate through in these rocky four years – chugging cheap beer, parallel parking and of course, the ins and outs of sex. Gainesville is full of hot people and hormones run high. We’re all so hot in fact that the Daily Beast ranked us as number 13 on the list of 20 sexiest ...

    Whiter and Whiter: Racebending the Bible with “Exodus”

    A couple of weeks before Christmas, a Welshman will play Moses on the silver screen. Some people will read that sentence and see nothing wrong, but those with a basic knowledge of cinematic history, or history in general, will see some major red flags. “Exodus: Gods and Kings” will be released Friday, starring Christian Bale, known for playing Batman in the trilogy, ...

    Misconceptions of Feminism
