IN NEWS: The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) this past Saturday launched Step UP!, a program meant to promote pro-social and bystander intervention behavior among student athletes, at the Fan the Fire event held in Cousens Gym.

IN FEATURES: While the taste of a flower bud may not be what you are thinking of while walking around Tufts’ campus, there are many more edible options than one would expect, according to Associate Professor of Biology George Ellmore.  An expert botanist, Ellmore has been a member of the Tufts Department of Biology since 1980 after receiving his Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley that same year.

IN ARTS: Going to the opera is always an event, but never quite like in Ken Ludwig’s “Lend Me a Tenor” (1986), Pen, Paint and Pretzel’s (3Ps) first-year show. “Lend Me a Tenor” is a story of much ado about what ultimately amounts to nothing, but the distance between the beginning and the end is not so much the basis of the show as is the journey from point A to point (again) A.

IN SPORTS: Throughout the season, there have been signs of progress from Tufts football. The Jumbos came within one stop of beating Bates. They could practically taste victory against Bowdoin. At Williams, they fell behind early before making a valiant comeback. Last week, they forced six Amherst turnovers and the score was tied at halftime. But at Colby on Saturday, Tufts never appeared to have a shot.
