To better understand how much food waste is an issue in the Plymouth State University community, the Office of Environmental Sustainability and Sodexo partnered during Earth Week to measure food waste at PSU.

P.A.C.E, the University’s programming board, is in search of students to fill positions for next semester’s calendar of activities. Activities from this past year included Walk the Moon, a haunted house, speed dating, the famous sex bingo, and plenty of open mic nights and other concerts.
Every year there are students all over campus struggling with financialical issues. When dealing with so many different expenses, something as important as grocery shopping may become a complex task. For those students who are having a hard time affording food, there is a solution.
Biederman’s Deli & Pub was filled with buzzing chatter of old friends, new friends, and the people who just happened to wander in on Wed., May 8, 2013. A bittersweet atmosphere snuck up on the crowd as the student organization Poet’s and Writer’s announced the release of the Centripetal, PSU’s literary magazine.

On Saturday night, PSU’s Spring Fling was in full effect. The concert, taking place down at the PSU football field, made you entering the premises on a winding path where concert goers were greeted by two yellow jacket sporting security personnel who reminded you to have your pink event bracelets and student I.D.’s ready in order to gain entrance. Before entering the fenced off area where the concert is being held, attendees were told to separate depending on gender into two separate lines to be frisked. A security guard asked for the presentation of a pink bracelet (a second-long flash of it from a good five feet away suffices) before directing individuals down a rope-path to be frisked. For males, the frisking process consists of individuals “emptying” their pockets of all contents and raising their arms up so that a guard can pat down their legs and torso before finally being waved to enter.
This came far too soon. It wasn’t supposed to go by this fast, especially not something that that I’ve enjoyed more than any other job in my life. I mean I get paid to write about the things I love. Music and movies and whatever I want basically. How can you go wrong with a gig like this? You can’t.
A lot of people who read my reviews seem to think I’m a very unhappy person who hates film. All except two of my reviews for this year have been on the negative side. When I talk about upcoming releases, I don’t really get as excited as other people. The most fun I’ve had in the theater this year was watching “Jurassic Park” in 3D, for God’s sake. Why does it appear that I’m a downer about films when I’m actually in love with them?
Let’s talk about taking chances. Or, more appropriately, how Iron Man 3 fails at it. The film is less of a new installment to the past two Iron Man films but more of an Avengers sequel. These are all things you’ve heard before though. Tony Stark has been traumatized by the events at the end of The Avengers and is suffering from an unhealthy cocktail of insomnia, PTSD, and workaholicism (just pretend it’s a real word). This is why he has been ignoring his girlfriend/former personal assistant/CEO of Stark Industries Pepper Potts to go off and build a ridiculous number of Iron Man suits instead.
The fall television schedule is beginning to fill up and shows are being told their fates as this article is written. Some shows are returning, some shows are ending and some are on the Great Divide between a renewal and cancellation. The below is a selection of renewed shows that should be cancelled and cancelled shows that should have been renewed, along with the shows that are on the fence that need just a nudge to the side of renewal or cancellation.
FIDLAR is everything you want in a punk band and a bit more just for good measure. They drink more than you could ever dream and do enough drugs to sedate a rhinoceros. The music on their recently released self-titled debut reflects their lifestyles, fast, short, and straight to the point with song titles like “Cocaine” and “Cheap Beer”, which are unsurprisingly about cocaine and cheap beer respectively.
It’s that time of year again. As spastic as the weather has been since returning from break, this past week has proved that spring is finally here. Earth Jam kicked off its sixth year of yet again a fun energy efficient event. On Saturday the 27th, PSU hosted its annual Earth Jam concert on the Alumni Green in front of the HUB and throughout the day, it was easily the place to be. No one could have asked for a better day as they gathered under the blue sky to hear the bands perform.
Whether you’ve seen him around campus, or have heard his name being yelled from a far while he is driving the shuttle, James "Jimmy" Buckland. Known by many, and loved by all, there is more to Mr. Buckland than meets the eye.
