Magic School Bus Rides Again

Netflix is on a roll with its remakes recently and “The Magic School Bus Rides Again” is its newest addition. With two new main characters, a remake of the theme song and a brand new animation style, there is a lot to take in for someone who grew up watching the original show.

DuPont gallery opening plays with gender and interaction

February 2, 2017 |


“A Hot Smidge” by Sidney Mullis was the first art exhibit this semester to take over the duPont Gallery. Having never been to art exhibition opening myself, I had no idea what I was going to walk into.
