After a very successful spring break trip, the nationally No. 1-ranked Tufts softball team returned to Medford with a full slate of games on the schedule for this week.

Community Health program in transition, primary major introduced

Currently, students looking to study Community Health (CH) can only declare it as a secondary major, meaning that students have to select another, “primary” major to study simultaneously. Next fall’s undergrads, however, will be the first to be able to pursue a primary CH major without being required to study something else, freeing up both time and credits for those interested […]

Ringo Starr brings good cheer with latest solo album, ‘Postcards from Paradise’

While everyone remembers Ringo Starr as the affable drummer of The Beatles, he is also generally considered the least important member of the band. This may be a fair characterization; his contributions to the Beatles’ repertoire — from “Yellow Submarine” (off “Revolver,” 1966) to “Octopus’s Garden” (off “Abbey Road,”1969) — were invariably goofy, almost childish in execution. […]

Geometric destruction

The beauty of dilapidation reveals the cyclical nature of life. As the grandiose is detached from the grand, each component is shown in its singular form. The seamlessness of creation is fractured, unmasking the creator’s artifice. Life is seen as it is: unfiltered and unaware. Capturing the subtle transformations of physical, natural and human forces, […]
