    Laura Ledesma

    For most, music just makes everything 10 times better—I think we can all agree on that (and if you don’t, well then you’re obviously no fun).

For those who live on my floor, they always know it’s me in the shower because I tend to play the same 8 songs... Read more.

  • Campus Cats

    Victoria Houghtalen

    On my second trip to DePauw as a senior in high school, I saw them. I was outside of the Hub when I looked to my left and saw two cats gathered underneath a table. I thought that their placement was some sort of a marketing scheme by the DePauw “Tigers” but I later learned that the Putnam County humane society shut down.
