The remodeling of the Geary Theatre almost started immediately when a light switch started on fire shortly after a performance of “Les Miserables” ended on Oct. 22. Corey Ewan, Brett Innes and a half dozen students were leaving through the front of the Geary Theatre lobby about 11:30 p.m. when someone smelled smoke. Ewan and Innes traced the smoke to the ticket office where they saw sparks and smoke coming from a light switch.

With Halloween approaching, we tend as a culture, to gravitate towards fear and things that produce fear. I am no different. I heard theater majors tell of the haunting of Geary Theatre. They recalled the tales of their late nights working there and experiences with the supernatural.

It feels really weird to be writing this as I know that before this hits the press, baseball season will be over and either the Kansas City Royals or the San Francisco Giants will be crowned as World Series champions. Either way, it is something that must be written for it is absolutely true. I have completely re-fallen in love with America’s pastime. It is no secret to those around me that for the past decade or so (as a side note that makes me sound really old), baseball and I have had a shaky relationship.

So far we have discovered the origins of the cosmos as well as the origins of life on Earth; however I’d like to take a break before we begin the next series in evolution and discuss why science matters. Why do I engage so deeply with science? That’s a question worth exploring and in the end, hopefully you will understand why I do what I do.

The wonderful world of college, the freedom, the friendships and, of course, the dreaded freshman 15. We’ve all heard of it. We’ve all feared it, and now it’s instantly upon us. Now, this isn’t to say everyone that comes to college gets a major case of depression and stress plus gets fat, but how do students stay healthy when they barley have time to think?

STEM; that was all there was to me when I first attended this institution of higher learning. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) were the things I held most dear, and the things I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life. I was aware of the liberal arts and like all students, I was forced to take a few classes in them and dreaded the fact that I couldn’t focus just on my major in the STEM fields. I enjoyed my time in those classes and even did fairly well in them.
