Empowerment stems first and foremost from embracing and loving oneself, a quality that Girls Rock Columbia instills in the form of music. This local branch of the national Girls Rock organization works year-round to plan a summer camp and various events that help boost confidence in young girls and transgender youth in the Columbia community.
From March 27 to April 4, Workshop Theatre will be presenting “Stick Fly”, a comedy-drama directed by USC alumnus Bakari Lebby. The production will run at 701 Whaley.
Kaylyn Middleton and Ari Robbins host an all female-fronted band radio show on 90.5 WUSC called "Dress Up" every Monday from 6-8 p.m.
In 1952, composer John Cage wrote a piece of music entitled “4’33” that is intended to be played on any instrument, by any number of people, for four minutes and 33 seconds. What stands out about the piece is that for those four minutes and 33 seconds, it consists of complete silence. Some called it a lazy waste of time; others hesitate to refer to it as art. Art has become rigid and overly defined. If only there was a way that any form of art could be expressed openly to the public at no charge whatsoever.
It’s finally upon us, folks: the glorious weeklong stretch of beer, bikinis and bad decisions known as spring break. For seven days, we can forget about our moral compasses and, for lack of better phrasing, f—k s—t up. Right?
During the interview portion of the most recent Miss Universe pageant, judge Rob Dyrdek posed this seemingly innocuous question to then-Miss Colombia. Though she went on to win the pageant, Colombia’s answer was decidedly evasive, and many viewers around the globe found themselves wondering how they would have chosen to answer Dyrdek’s question. Sarah Weishuhn knew immediately what she would have answered, but then again, she’s Miss South Carolina USA 2015.

Madison Bourne was getting ready to get back in the classroom in August 2011, months after she dropped out of classes at the University of South Carolina, at the urging of her then-boyfriend. She registered for general education classes at Midlands Technical College with the intention of eventually getting back to USC. But two weeks before her first class, a little pink plus sign changed everything.
Being confined to a small space and an even smaller budget is a bit of a challenge when it comes to having a creatively decorated space. You may not realize it, but you actually have a lot of potential sitting around and waiting to be put to use. Using everything from a rock to a cheese grater, these are some ways to easily create your own Anthropologie-meets-Ikea, Pinterest-worthy space.
Listen up, foodies. It’s time for a special edition of Food Fight that—you guessed it—isn’t about food at all. When called upon for this mission, I gladly accepted the challenge ahead of me. How would I find signature cocktails to rival the likes of a Nerds Pitcher at Group Therapy or a Fishbowl at (RIP Kildare’s) The Horseshoe? I would put on my classiest game face and hit up a few of the more sophisticated bars in town, that’s how.
Well, it’s almost spring, and you know what that means. Actually, chances are if you live in a dorm or apartment on a college budget, you don’t know what that means. It’s time for spring cleaning, people! Open up your windows and let the stale smell of winter be gone. Afternoon strolls through campus are no longer a race to save your favorite extremities! As Mother Nature turns over a few new leaves, you should too. To match the changes outdoors, liven up your space indoors with some new furniture. This season is all about furniture that looks high-quality but won’t break the bank.
I’ve always admired the grace and glamour of ballerinas, so taking a barre class sounded like the ideal way to live out my unfulfilled dreams of pirouetting across stage in a leotard. Cut to 15 minutes before class starts: I think of myself as being in mildly good shape, but I’ve already worked up a sweat on the walk to Strom, and class hasn’t even started yet.
When I hear “women’s empowerment,” I think feminism. That’s natural, right? However, I do not consider myself a feminist. I mean, I think women are awesome (because, duh, I am one), but I’ve never been interested in the whole “feminism” movement. However, despite my somewhat indifferent views on feminism, I agreed to go to a “Sex Sells” meeting for SAVVY, a group for minority women working to improve their place at USC.
I have about an hour until the Fashion Board meeting starts. I’ve already showered, shaved—even combed my hair—and now I’m standing in front of my closet without the slightest clue what to wear. I should note that I’m a nearly 24-year-old guy who doesn’t give clothes much thought—until I’m supposed to go to a club meeting specifically about such things and begin to think that perhaps an old black Ramones T-shirt is not the best choice. After agonizing over it for 20 minutes or so, I pick a pair of jeans and a nicer shirt.
I kind of break the rules sometimes,” says Elle Olivia Andersen as she passionately explains her photographic technique. Whether she’s making acquaintances out of perfect strangers or developing an in-depth cultural spectacle for her next project, Andersen pushes boundaries in order to produce a depiction of culture unobserved by the casual eye.
For most college seniors, the last semester is a wild ride of living it up with friends and enjoying the final months of justifying reckless behavior. Ryan Stevens, instead, decided to write a play.
Sweet, Sentimental, Sappy. After reading the novel “Fifty Shades of Grey,” these are probably not the first words that come to mind. That’s why it’s perfect that this bestseller is being released in film on the eve of the most romantic day of the year.
People don’t watch “The Daily Show” because they want to learn something, they watch it so they can understand something. “The Daily Show” is a procedure where the everyday, American politics and events are drilled to the marrow and presented in the satirical viewpoint that hooked legions of viewers tune into every night. But Jon Stewart was the only one with a scalpel to be able to pull it off so wonderfully.
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been watching a new show from the channel formerly known as Music Television, starring Victoria Justice of “Zoey 101” and “Victorious” fame as a girl who can also hack(!) trying to catch an implausibly smart criminal with a stalkerish obsession over her. While the plot sounds like something straight out of a Lifetime movie, I gave the show the benefit of the doubt because it’s fellow MTV drama, “Teen Wolf”, is the best thing currently airing on the network, despite having an equally-terrible premise. Unfortunately, “Eye Candy” doesn’t surpass expectations quite as well as “Teen Wolf” did. The writing is off the wall, and the characters are shallow, with the exception of Justice’s Lindy Sampson, who has some depth, even though she spends most of her time playing “loose cannon cop who doesn’t play by the rules”.
I have two stacks of about ten books each wobbling on my bedside table at the moment. Some of these books are conspicuously dusty, and the ones at the bottom of these unorganized piles have been holding weight for so long I wouldn’t be all that surprised if a few pages here and there have fused together in a hope that solidarity might keep them alive. Why, if I love reading so much, do these books continue to build shelves of dust? Could it be that I’m just lazy? Well, yeah, but I think it has more to do with reading fatigue.
