Since Sept. 16 the Association of Amherst Students Budgetary Committee has been enforcing stricter budgetary guidelines for clubs that request funding for their activities.

“There are really only three policy changes this year, and they’re all beneficial for the students,” said AAS Treasurer Paul Gramieri.

The AAS has changed funding guidelines for club transportation, limited funding for food and instituted a new event publicity requirement.

This year Amherst College is undertaking a massive overhaul of its medical services, bringing Keefe Health Center under college ownership and hiring an almost entirely new medical staff. But the transition period has proven rocky. As the health center completes the process of hiring and training new staff members, some students have experienced lapses in service.

The student body will vote Oct. 5 on whether to adopt a one-semester trial period for social clubs.

The social clubs proposal, first introduced in fall 2014, has undergone months of revision and debate. A vote was originally scheduled for May 2015, but the work group postponed it in order to make further changes to the proposal.

How far is too far? What’s the difference between what we see in people and what they see in themselves? Those are the questions explored in Noah Baumbach’s latest feature film “Mistress America.” Baumbach is known for his films about characters struggling with growing up, and “Mistress America” is no different. The film, which stars Lola Kirke, an up-and-coming actress, and Greta Gerwig (“Frances Ha,” “Greenberg” and “No Strings Attached”), focuses on the life of a first-year at Barnard College who is thrust into the crazy life of her soon to be stepsister.

The pages of The Amherst Student are often filled with reviews of the latest blockbusters or indie movies. But if you’re in the mood for something different this weekend, consider watching Ingmar Bergman’s classic 1957 film, “The Seventh Seal.”

The film begins in 1969 as a dewy-eyed man-child stands on the corner of Charles Street and Seventh Avenue, staring out wistfully at the glittering metropolis before him. He is a painful representation of every country boy who has ever been thrust into the big city. For the ficitional Danny Winters, Manhattan is a sanctuary as much as it is a daunting city. Hundreds of miles away from his hyper-conservative, bigoted parents, it is a place where he can allow his identity as a gay man to surface freely.
