The first annual Little Black Dress event took place at SKY Armory on Thursday to benefit women in business.

Bring Your Own Vinyl Night, a weekly event at Funk 'N Waffles, draws students and community members to try out a new way of listening to music.

In a world of easily accessible digital music, listening to a vinyl record can be seen as either for older generations or contrarians. The format has seen a resurgence in recent years, but it still carries the mark of an item reserved for only serious collectors and aficionados. To the uninitiated, vinyl records can seem mysterious and a little intimidating.

SU junior Kate Browse delves into the process of making medical prosthetics by creating a plaster mold of her face.

Kate Browse, a sculpture junior, dove headfirst into pursuing her goal of discovering the process of making human prosthetics by constructing a mold of her face.

To do this, she and two other assisting sculpture majors mixed a skin-safe alginate with water to make a plaster-like substance. Her assistants then painted this mixture over her face, neck and ears. 

As a self-described claustrophobic, Browse said she first felt intimidated that she would have to breathe through two small plastic straws placed in her nostrils while the plaster dried on her face.

Model Stacy Fernandez shares her journey of getting ready for the Rip the Runway fashion show on Friday.

“This is nothing like last year. It’s not hectic, there’s no yelling, it’s weirdly calm,” said one of the girls doing hair and makeup.

“Calm?” I think. Nothing about this is calm, at least not for me.

Backstage isn’t what I expected. It’s not actually behind the stage, rather there is a set of stairs that leads to a room directly underneath the stage. This is where the real show is.
