Bryce Monroe ’15 performed his play, “The Lower Frequencies,” last weekend at the Powerhouse. The play, which was inspired by Ralph Ellison’s “Invisible Man,” was originally Monroe’s senior thesis. Monroe hopes “The Lower Frequencies” will grow into a touring performance for colleges all around the country. The piece is a one-man show that analyzes what it means to be black in America. Monroe aims for his work to be more than a performance; he wants it to be a learning experience and an opportunity for people to face the harsh reality of modern day racism.

“Inside Out” could not have been released at a more perfect time. After a trend of lackluster sequels to older movies, such as “Cars” and “Monster’s, Inc.”, the animation juggernaut’s 15th movie struck gold in a true return to form.

Several members of the Amherst men’s tennis team traveled to Middlebury this past weekend to compete in the 2014 USTA/ITA Regional Championships. The Jeffs have experienced widespread success at this tournament, dating back to 2010 when Moritz Koenig ’11 and Wes Waterman ’12 defeated Mark Kahan ’13 and Luis Rattenhuber ’13 for the doubles title. Since then, Amherst has brought home either a singles or doubles crown in each proceeding year, featuring an all-Amherst singles final in 2012 when Andrew Yaraghi ’16 topped Ben Fife ’16 for the title.

Five College Digital Humanities celebrated its kickoff event last Friday afternoon in Frost Library by showcasing a host of current projects.

Five College Digital Humanities is a five-year program created by the Five College Consortium to fund, support and inspire research in the digital humanities.

Over the summer, the college relocated all of the books and documents on the second floor of Frost Library. This is the first on-the-ground step in the college’s Humanities Center project, which was approved by faculty in the spring of 2014. Concrete work and planning during the past few months involved collaboration among faculty, library administrators, and outside firms.

After none of the candidates received more than 50 percent of the vote in the first round of presidential elections, the Association of Amherst Students Elections Committee announced that a runoff election will be held on Thursday, Oct. 2.

Areej Hasan ’18

I would absolutely adore representing the class of 2018 in the senate. Not only will I listen to your concerns, but I will also do everything in my power to implement corresponding changes. Teamwork is key to accomplishing anything. So, if you elect me as your senator, I will work with the other senators, the staff, and the administration to actually put your ideas to work, rather than vaguely talk about accomplishing them. Even though we are all still figuring out Amherst, I think we can work together to improve student life. Vote Areej for senate!
