Book Review: Milk and Honey

By Jasmine López, Reporter

March 15, 2017

Filed under Review

I have read many books, and I would say it’s safe to say that it’s rare for a book to come along and leave an impact on the way you think. A couple months ago, I read a poetry style book called Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. I wanted to share about it because it has been a few months, and I still fi...

Filed under Review, Student Life

After a delay, a whole buncha complication, and a fair bit of confusion on the part of some (but certainly far from all) students, the Winter Ball finally happened on February 4th.
