Students enjoy giving back to community over Spring Break

Oh, the joys of Spring Break. Lounging around, sucking on tropical drinks with little umbrellas in them, and enjoying the view on some exotic beach might just be the dream of every college student. When most of us think about Spring Break, we think of hot bodies, girls gone wild and an abject lack of supervision, but a new revolution is occurring on college campuses across America — the Service Revolution.

More and more often, average college students of every variety are choosing Spring Break service projects. With exotic destinations such as Mexico, Costa Rica, France, England, South Africa and even the Czech Republic, students are discovering student learning as an inexpensive and gratifying spring experience.

New Meg Ryan film is fair

“Against The Ropes,” starring Meg Ryan and Omar Epps, is based on the true story of Jackie Kallen, the first — and most successful — female boxing manager in the history of the sport, and her first boxer under contract. The story is set in present day Cleveland, where Jackie works as an over-worked secretary under the incompetent male owner of a boxing venue.
Twisted proves to be no mystery at all

Paramount Pictures’ new release “Twisted” seems to have all the elements of a good movie. It features Ashley Judd, Andy Garcia and Samuel L. Jackson. It’s even directed by Phillip Kaufman, an accomplished director. Naturally, I thought this would make for a good film. I was wrong. Perhaps I should have spent another hour and a half watching the red carpet for the Oscars. It was obvious that the “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” would sweep the Academy Awards this year, but even they turned out to be more of a mystery than Twisted.
