“The Death of Stalin” imagines the brief period in Soviet history between the rule of Stalin and his formal denunciation. It asks the creative questions only comedy can: what if Stalin soiled himself before bursting some artery and dying a slow, solitary death?

The end of the semester is fast-approaching and warmer days may finally be here. Whether you just want to get off campus for the weekend or have a special celebration planned for the end of the year with friends, this is a great time to take advantage of Boston being only a few hours away and enjoy all that the city has to offer.

In her debut album, “Isolation,” Kali Uchis transcends the R&B genre by sharing a raw take on her own narrative as a romance-seeking, Colombian-American woman.

On Thursday, April 12, the Mead Art Museum stayed open to visitors all night as workshops and events took place. Coinciding with what seemed to be the beginning of warm weather, the event, “Red Eye | Black Tie,” transformed our campus into a temporary hub for art interaction that also aimed to establish connections far beyond this weekend. The event was a joint effort put on by the Mead Museum, the Association of Amherst Students, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, The Office of Student Activities and various campus resource enters.
