It’s the start of the new school year. Excitement buzzes in dorms as students decorate their first home away from home, while upperclassmen stroll to their new classes with the confidence of experience and a fresh start. The anticipation of a new football season is high, and the bars in Five Points are crowded yet again. And as you sit on the Horseshoe to admire the changing leaves and count how many times students inevitably trip over improperly placed bricks, you may notice one thing: more and more students fill the streets.
My involvement with Garnet and Black started my sophomore year. One night in the fall of 2015, Josh Thompson sent me an Instagram message. He told me he liked my work and wanted me to help shoot the fall style spread. I was so thrilled, I immediately called my grandma to tell her, and she cried. After a successful fall spread, I was asked to come on board the masthead. I started off at the bottom of the totem pole as senior photographer, then on to assistant photo editor and now finally as editor-in-chief.
On October 14, the Breakaway Festival is making its final stop at the AvidXchange Music Factory in Charlotte, North Carolina. For those looking for a multi-genre event, this is definitely the place to be.
Curiosity is an important part of human nature. The ability to reconsider and second-guess facts is something that has long been heralded as an important characteristic of intelligence.
New York Fashion Week has just passed and we all know that they set the stage for trends everywhere. We see brands trading casual looks for power suits, tailored and structured pieces. Pink is now the new red and 70’s plaid is back, along with western wear. Did I forget to mention, hello shoulder pads! Now on to the good stuff...
Upon arriving at USC this fall, I was only aware of the Strom Thurmond Center students and faculty have been raving about. Little did I know that the University of South Carolina operates another workout facility located on Wheat Street, the Solomon Blatt PE Center. The Blatt PE Center is meager in comparison to the extensive activities, equipment, classes and more Strom has to offer. The assumption that a majority of students use Strom’s facilities more than Blatt's leads us to the question, “Why is USC still operating two ﬁtness venues?”
It's a good time to look back at the 70s. Those years brought increasingly urgent calls for environmental conservation, disenfranchised social groups that struggled for increased rights, prolonged wars carried on indefinitely and hostility increased each day between the government and the people. Then: it was the first Earth Day, Civil Rights and Native American movements, Vietnam, Watergate. Not much needs to be said about now. It is safe to state that now is felt by all of us. For many it is a time of uncertainty and even fear. Anxiety is something we carry, gathering more over time or finding hope to fight it. At the Columbia Art Museum’s retrospective, the historical context provided by curator Catherine Walworth springs those parallels between that time and our own.
The infomercials may feature extremely toned models who make it look effortless, but to say Zumba is easy would be a bold-faced lie. Believe me, you will be sweating by the end of this class. However, it is important to note that after Omar Baraket’s Zumba class, you will leave feeling overwhelmingly good–beaming even–because though it is exhausting, it’s an incredibly fun time. The instructor, Omar, makes it a point during every class to make sure you’re smiling, and his friendly yet intimidating demeanor is the perfect combination to motivate you to push yourself and work harder without fully exhausting yourself.
The OUT Here film series is hosted by the Nickelodeon right here in Columbia, South Carolina. OUT Here is a community-curated monthly LGBTQ+ film series meant to answer the questions: "What was the first gay film you saw? What was the first gay film that changed your life, made you laugh, broke your heart, lifted your imagination, gave you hope?" The series began in April and still has two more showings in October and November. Titles of the films and the dates and times of their showings can be found on the Nickelodeon OUT Here page on their website. Below is a review of the first film in the series, "Mosquita y Mari."
An NBC poll found that only 52 percent of Americans agree that racism against black Americans is an “extremely” or “very serious” problem – a split which, to many black people, is a disappointing statistic.
To all the scene kids who tried telling their parents that it wasn’t just a phase, this is the event for you.

When you first enter the non-profit Trustus theater, you are greeted by an entrance which makes you feel like you’re trespassing on a forbidden but well-cleaned warehouse. You’re guided toward your seat where complimentary popcorn awaits you. On stage, you see a simple park setting: two square wooden tables, a grill, a trashcan and an awning. The aroma of hot dogs on a grill surrounds you. The tagline on your playbill reads, “This Barbecue Ain’t No Picnic.” You read this and look at the simple stage design. What could possibly happen?
Pictures are extremely important, especially in our generation. With just one ‘click’ we have the ability to capture a memory that will last us a life time.
Stepping inside a music festival is like boarding a ship and going to another world: there is nothing like it and you will never want to leave. Tie-dye, pashminas and totems are everywhere. People with hula-hoops and juggling talent will flow with the music around them. Music is on non-stop repeat all day and all night.
Nashville, Tennessee’s very own Judah and the Lion rocked the stage at Music Farm as they performed 16 of their hits, including a “Happy Birthday” for Judah, that had the audience singing every word.
It’s been 10 days since I arrived in Ireland. So far, Dublin and Northern Ireland have treated me well. I’ve settled into my dorm, registered for classes and (kind of) figured out the bus system.
