IN NEWS: Four Tufts freshmen on March 27 launched a new smartphone application, WeParty, which allows Tufts students to view locations of various parties and social events on and off campus.

IN FEATURES: While Tufts is known for its emphasis on “active citizenship,” a growing number of students and faculty are wishing to bring “entrepreneurship” closer to the forefront of the university experience. The Gordon Institute, founded in 1984, seeks to assist inspired Tufts students as they bring their ideas to life.

IN ARTS: Like temperatures above 50 degrees, the spring production from the Department of Drama and Dance has finally arrived. A cure to midterm and finals gloom, “Or,” a play by Liz Duffy Adams that first premiered in 2009, promises to be a breath of fresh air — with some foul language thrown in for good measure.

IN SPORTS: The men’s crew team competed for its first time this semester over the weekend, rowing in one race on Saturday and two on Sunday, winning all three.
