Hot off the Press | October 3, 2013

On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was: “It’s October 3rd.” Here’s what’s hot off the press!

IN NEWS: The Tufts chapter of Zeta Beta Tau (ZBT), is throwing a ball. Well, a charity event entitled “Get on the Ball” to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital, which kicks off today and will continue until next Friday, Oct. 11.

TODAY’S OP-ED: In response to Antonin Scalia’s Snyder Lecture yesterday, three students are speaking out against our university for an action that they deem “indefensible” hosting a man “…on the same campus as thousands of students whose bodies and communities have been targeted by his decisions.”

IN ARTS: Set in the village of Sleepy Hollow, “Sleepy Hollow” has an intriguing premise: one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Death, has risen again, and is terrorizing the present-day town’s population with vicious beheadings. How fitting for the fall!

IN SPORTS: The men’s soccer team lost its second game of the year on Saturday to the nationally third-ranked Amherst Lord Jeffs before returning home to top Trinity 2-0 less than 24 hours later. Tufts now holds a respectable 3-2 mark against in-conference opponents in what has been a competitive NESCAC season this year.
