‘WandaVision’ is Engaging and Mysterious

Author: Oscar Noem

While it’s difficult to make a horror TV show that genuinely scares the audience, it has always been more difficult to make a show that truly unnerves the viewer. Somehow, the new Disney+ original “WandaVision” manages to perfectly nail the atmosphere of “something’s not quite right.”

Brain Lair Books Stocks Stories for All

Author: Dessi Gomez

Kathy Burnette, owner and founder of The Brain Lair Bookstore, used to be a tax accountant. “I’ve always wanted to open a bookstore. About 25 years ago —I have a 25-year-old daughter — and when she was born, that was one of the jobs I thought I would like to do because I thought it’d be fun to raise a baby in a bookstore.”

Student Perspective: Where Our Individualistic Society Falls Short
Album review:

Album review: "No Me Llores"

Author: Krienke, Kimani

There are so many talented individuals at Notre Dame that continuously go unnoticed by most. While the university gives these students a platform to stand on, the artists must work tirelessly to get to where they want to be. Felix Rabito is one of those artists that did not stop striving for more, and his dedicated fans, even after graduating. Rabito and his band, Saint Dismas, performed at house shows, the Legends Nightclub, the Keenan Revue and more venues while at Notre Dame. The trio gained a decent following by doing so, but they aren’t a household name yet.

Opinion: Reopening for In-Person Classes was a Good Decision. Reopening for In-Person Classes Without an Effective Testing and Tracing Apparatus Was Not.

Author: Michael Dugan

When Fr. Jenkins announced in May the university’s plan to reopen for classes for the Fall Semester 2020, I was happy. Notre Dame, one of the nation’s top universities, was one of the first schools to come out in favor of reopening, shortly after some major state systems had begun to announce that they would go online in the fall. My peers had reached a nearly unanimous agreement that online learning was subpar, and we were happy to return to class. I looked forward to once again being able to be with my friends, rather than just seeing their faces on a phone screen. Planning for this semester would be a formidable challenge, but I believed Notre Dame would pull this off.

Opinion: Handling COVID on campus

Opinion: Handling COVID on campus

Author: Annabeth Briley

I was lucky enough to retain my on-campus job from last semester for this fall. On my first day back, my boss and I had the conversation that just about everyone was having with each other, the questions we’ve all been asking like, “We’re back, now what or we’re back, but how long will it last,” but also, “should we have come back at all?” Now, as a selfish college student who missed her friends, her dorm and just being on campus, my immediate response to that last question is a strong yes. But as someone with a sister that is immunocompromised and family members in the medical field who risk their lives daily helping treat patients, I see the other, more responsible answer, that no, we should not have come back.

Tech Review: WhatsApp

Tech Review: WhatsApp

Author: Isabella Tasende

Combining Messages, GroupMe, Snapchat and Facetime all in one, WhatsApp has become one of the most popular text and voice messaging apps around the world. In fact, it wasn’t until I came to the United States that I realized WhatsApp wasn’t the standard texting app everywhere. Its easy-to-use interface has appealing text bubbles that make apps like Messages widely appreciated and the ability to create large groups, which reduces the need for additional applications like GroupMe. Plus, its sticker-sending feature grants the perfect response to that daring text your friend sent.
