  • Utopia


    Film Review by Lucia Watson Ahhhh, O-Week. A chance to kill off a few brain cells before the readings pile up, right? Not necessarily. On the last night of O-Week, Nura Gili hosted a screening of John Pilger’s new documentary Utopia, which was a welcome change from the usual drinking and society events. The film […]

  • Sphero 2.0 Review

    Sphero 2.0 Review
