Spring into Theaters

Some highly anticipated films will be released in the next couple of months including The Jungle Book, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Captain America: Civil War.

It still might be April, but summer is quickly approaching. Even though May might not be a summer month, it is considered to be the beginning of the summer movie blockbuster season. The rest of April and May have some […]

Gustie of the Week – Thomas Buan

Thomas’ transformation into Hamm for his Senior Honor’s project in Endgame.

If you’ve met him you more than likely remember him because Senior Theatre Honors major Thomas Buan is a man who doesn’t hold back in showing his passion and conviction for the things he cares about. “Thomas is loud and […]

Batman v Superman: Dawn of hopefully something better

Even with an all-star cast including Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice failed to deliver a respectable superhero film.

For this week’s movie review, things are going to be a little different. Rather than review the campus movie, I’ll be taking a look at one of the most anticipated films this year that will likely continue to top the […]

Gustavus Wind Orchestra shares passion for music during spring concert tour

GWO received the honor of kicking off their tour by performing at the CBDNA conference in Iowa.

While some Gusties were spending their spring breaks binge watching Netflix or soaking up the sun on coastal beaches, the musicians of the Gustavus Wind Orchestra (GWO) were spreading their passion for music. Gustavus Wind Orchestra has been touring the […]

Gustavus to host a capella group Six Appeal

Founded ten years ago at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, the now Minneapolis-based a capella group Six Appeal has released two albums and tours nationally, performing around 200 shows a year. They combine comedy with the energy and musical vitality of a rock band, all without any use of instruments. They will be performing  for Gustavus students Friday, March 18 at 8 p.m. in Alumni Hall.

Staying at home beats seeing Daddy’s Home

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg team up once again for a classic dad vs step-dad story, but the results are not nearly as charming or funny as their buddy-cop movie The Other Guys.

Will Ferrell’s comedies tend to be pretty unpredictable in quality. When it’s good, it’s hilarious, like Anchorman or Elf. When it’s bad, we get eye rollers like Land of the Lost and Bewitched. It ultimately depends on the director and […]

Gustie of the Week – Ted Rosenback

As Marketplace Supervisor, Ted is always happy to jump in wherever help is needed in the caf.

As a child, Ted Rosenback’s father taught him that grey is not a color. Now the Marketplace Supervisor at Gustavus, Ted understands the meaning of his father’s lesson and continues to live by it. “Obviously he knew that grey is […]

GAC’s Got Talent kicked off 21st Building Bridges

Janet Jennings, Herchran Singh, and Gabe Grosshuesch won Gustavus’ annual talent competition with a mash-up dance performance last Friday.

Matt Falk cleans up comedy

Falk makes comedy relatable by talking about topics like weight loss, puberty, and morality.

He’s an interesting type to be sure. A Canadian Mennonite only a few years ahead of most attending Gustavus, oh, and it should be mentioned he’s a standup comedian. Describing Matthew Falk as a rare breed is as much of […]

Suffragette sheds light on women’s rights history

Suffragette stars Helena Bonham Carter, Carey Mulligan, and Meryl Streep.

Typically when films show the history of various forms of inequality in the past, the standard reaction I’ve seen from audiences is shock at how bad things were and some reassurance that at least the issues have  been improved since […]
