LOVE AND MARRIAGE… and college?

In a world where sexual exploration seems rampant, where college is widely seen as a time to date many people and search for random play or whatever I can get, its certainly not often that marriage even crosses ones mind in a college setting. Yet, while some prefer messing around, hooking up, or being friends with benefits, other students are settling down for good.

MSoccer steamrolls Lasell

The Brandeis mens soccer team went 2-0 this week, recording two big shutouts against Lasell College and Colby-Sawyer College. These two wins are part of a four game shutout streak that the Judges are currently riding. In the last four games the Judges have outscored their opponents 21-0.

Golf finishes 32 out of 43 at NEIGA

The varsity golf team finished off the season with its final tournament from Oct. 22 to Oct. 24 in Brewster, Mass. After a season of ups and downs, the team was able to make a second day comeback in order to place 32nd overall out of over 40 teams. The Judges played well and many of the team members scored their personal bests for the season.

Volleyball spikes Lasell

At home and slightly hobbling with one starter injured, captain Shannon Trees 08, the Judges were more than a match for the Lasell Lasers, who really had no answer to the Judges onslaught. Missing three starters of their own, the Lasers fell 3-0, never once coming close in lopsided affairs of 30-13, 30-8, 30-15.

Red Hot Chili Peppers in, The Mars Volta out

Last weekends Red Hot Chili Peppers/Mars Volta concert at the TD Banknorth Garden gave attendees a stark dichotomy of live concert approaches. On the one hand, the Chili Peppers slammed through almost two hours of hits, solos, and antics;

the band was clearly onstage with the prominent goal of putting on an entertaining performance, and it had the audience fully engaged and cheering its every move. At the other end of the spectrum, the Mars Volta spent the majority of its time meandering through new material, either unconcerned or oblivious to the complete and utter lack of positive response it was receiving.

The right time for An Inconvenient Truth

Students for Environmental Action and their subsidiary organization the Campus Climate Challenge hosted a screening of An Inconvenient Truth this week from Monday to Thursday in the Golding auditorium. The purpose of the event was to not only display the harmful effects of global warming through the documentary by Al Gore, but also to encourage people to take part in the activities of the club. Over one hundred people attended the first showing of the movie on Monday night and watched the hour and a half long documentary. Afterwards, students stayed around as members of the organization sat behind tables and provided more information about the topic and ways students can get involved in solving the various problems.
