Senior Thesis: Interracial and Interfaith Dating. Thoughts?

By Jeremy Fishman Hey ya’ll. My apologies for not writing last month. I’ve been extremely busy working on my Senior Thesis, a full length play exploring the nature of intermarriage, its effect on individuals, and ultimately how it challenges the nature of identity and cultural “fact.” Any of your thoughts/personal anecdotes on the subject would[…]

A Weekend to Remember

Just by the simple fact that I attend the U of R tells you that I am not a slacker.  I paid my dues in high school and went way beyond what anyone expected of me. That aside, I also need to add that I’m not a stick in the mud. No sir. I get[…]
