A Senior’s Final Move Out

Sof Quaglia, Satire Columnist May 1, 2024

Sof Quaglia, Satire Columnist April 24, 2024

In the wise words of Jason Kelce, “We have to talk about it.” I would not be able to call myself a journalist if I didn’t write about this topic. What topic might that be? Taylor Swift’s newest...
