The Amherst women’s lacrosse team went 2-1 over spring break, dropping a close game against NESCAC rival Bates before winning two games against McDaniel College and Dickinson in Clermont, Florida. With these results, Amherst’s record now stands at 3-1 (2-1 NESCAC).

The team endured a tough 8-7 loss to Bates in a close Saturday afternoon match on March 12.

Last week, nine women and two men traveled to Greensboro, North Carolina, for the NCAA swimming championships. On the men’s side, Amherst placed 28th overall in the 57-team field with a total of 31 points. The women finished second among NESCAC teams and sixth overall with a final tally of 158 points.

The Amherst men’s lacrosse team survived tough competition on their recent spring break trip to Florida. They played two gritty opponents during their week in sunny Orlando, seeing two nail biting matches against their toughest out of conference rivals.

A prolific documentarian, Michael Moore has become shorthand for the mildly snarky, moderately subversive and heavily engaged leftist documentaries that have come to define his niche in cinema. Moore, though reared in the waning days of the Cold War, typifies the spirit of millennial progressivism. His movies are deeply starched in contemporary cynical humor, critiquing the flaws of the U.S.’s domestic policies. However, typically at the end, when you’re convinced you must move out of this country, he gives you a sense of optimism towards the future.

Even when he releases what seems like second-rate songs, Kendrick Lamar remains on the top of the rap game. His most recent album, “untitled unmastered.,” was released on March 4, and while imperfect and incomplete, it is still a characteristically strong effort. He advances the psychological and politically charged themes from his previous album, “To Pimp a Butterfly,” while also creating songs that could conceivably become radio hits (particularly tracks two, five and eight.)

Each senior at my high school was instructed to take the last three weeks before graduation to focus on a project, internship or idea. In May 2013, I chose to work with the design team at Gensler, an architecture firm. One of their then-current projects was to co-design a new art museum in downtown Los Angeles, named The Broad.

Nov. 11, 2015 marked the launch of Amherst Cinema’s 10th anniversary year series, a year-long collection of screenings and accompanying events in celebration of the nonprofit cinema’s continued existence as Amherst’s film hub. Although the nonprofit entered the community in 2006, the creation is more accurately described as a rebirth. The cinema’s history began much earlier, possessing an array of identities before becoming the Amherst Cinema currently frequented by Five College students and the greater Amherst community members.
