Theta Chi returns from a year of probation: Your Tufts Daily Briefing
Tufts’ Graduate School of Arts and Science hosts many master’s degree programs that are continuations of their respective undergraduate majors and programs of study. For current undergraduates pursuing a career in education, Tufts offers a few notable 4+1 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.
After yet another uphill kitchen last week in Houston Hall, I decided it was high time to switch things up and go all the way to the other end of campus to Tilton Hall to cook up one of my favorites: pierogies!
Taylor Swift is one of the most iconic pop stars of the past 15 years. With a career spanning 10 original albums and four re-recorded albums, it is difficult to imagine a more successful musical artist. According to a Forbes article, 53% of the U.S. population are Swift fans and 44% of avid fans self-identify as “Swifties.”
American reality television in the 2000s was infamous. Strange concepts abounded, such as “My Strange Addiction” (2010–15), where subjects would confess to anything from eating half a roll of toilet paper a day to being in love with a car and “Bridalplasty” (2010–11), where brides competed in challenges to win a wedding and desired plastic surgeries. One can’t forget “Wife Swap” (2004–20), where two very different families would swap wives, or occasionally husbands, for two weeks.
I am well aware that just last month, I went on a tirade claiming that baseball was broken because of the lack of spending limits. But, just because I don’t like the system doesn’t mean certain teams aren’t stupid for not taking advantage of it. Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs — I’m looking at you.
Community health majors must pay eight times original price for required summer internship: Your Tufts Daily Weekly Roundup
The frustration associated with the Student Information System is universal for Tufts students. Students wanting to update personal information or modify their course enrollment are likely to encounter numerous technological issues. I myself have to use Safari to access SIS since Chrome hasn’t allowed access for several months for me. I have also heard horror stories of students not being able to register for classes because SIS would not open on any browser. The problems associated with SIS can prevent many students from getting into classes they need for their major or distribution requirements. Given that SIS is such an integral part of the academic experience at Tufts, it is completely unacceptable that its numerous faults have gone unaddressed for years.

Last weekend, Tufts men's hockey finished the regular season with a win against the Bowdoin Polar Bears and a tie against the Colby Mules, keeping them at No. 3 in the NESCAC with a 9–7–2 NESCAC record. Tufts started their weekend on the road with a strong 3–1 victory over Bowdoin. It was an important weekend for the Jumbos, who needed to maintain a seed of fourth or better in the NESCAC to host a playoff game this weekend.
On Feb. 8, the Biden-Harris Administration announced a “historic partnership” with 14 professional sports leagues and player associations across the United States. The partnership features commitments to food provisioning, education and physical activity. It is part of a slate of commitments in the White House Challenge to End Hunger and Build Healthy Communities.
As evidenced in my last installment of “Ruminations from Rabat,” traveling has been a main priority of mine this semester.
As jets burst across the sky, a residential building in Nabatieh, Lebanon was crushed, destroying the life of a family inside — history repeats itself. On Feb. 14, Israel carried out a drone strike operation in the southern Lebanese town of Nabatieh, a densely populated area with a population of 120,000. The strike was successful in targeting three Hezbollah members including a commander, Ali al-Debs. Among those killed were at least seven members of a Lebanese family, leaving their three-year-old child, who was rescued from the rubble, as the sole survivor. With continual rocket exchanges across the border, this massacre of a Lebanese family stands out as the deadliest incident since Oct. 8 in Lebanon. In launching this strike, Israel has broken a considerable rule of the game. Will this push Israel and Lebanon into total war? To understand this incident, the “rules of the game” must be established, and the Nabatieh massacre must be evaluated within this context.
After getting out of an Uber with four of my closest friends, we slowly struggled down the steep steps leading into the Italian Embassy. It was Feb. 10, the Saturday before Valentine’s Day, and we were set to enter the Embassy’s Valentine’s Ball. Waiting outside the entrance were the regulars: military men, Congressional staffers and couples in mid-life crises.
I started this column to discuss the ongoing collapse of America’s educational system in the face of limited funding, lack of parental involvement and bad policies. But before we get to any of that we must address a very serious question: Why do we have a taxpayer funded mandatory public education system in the first place?
We are three years into Joe Biden’s presidency, and Americans are not exactly happy about his performance so far as a chief executive. His approval rating has been consistently poor with an average of 39.8% in his third year in office, the second lowest only to Jimmy Carter for first-term presidents in the same period. A key reason for this unpopularity is that many voters believe he is too old for the job. Yet, Biden has been one of the most legislatively active presidents, passing several important bills to ensure the success of America. With the media so focused on his age, it is imperative that we go back and examine his legislative accomplishments.
“Drive-Away Dolls”, directed by Ethan Coen, is reminiscent of many classic Coen brothers movies. But, in many ways, it’s something new for the filmmaker. A departure from Coen’s catalog of Westerns and crime comedies, “Drive Away Dolls” is a crime flick, a road trip comedy and a sexploitation film rolled into one. Coen co-produced the film with his wife Tricia Cooke, who wrote the film with him in the early 2000s — it sat in development for nearly 20 years before making it to the big screen. Raunchy, zippy and unabashedly queer, “Drive Away Dolls” doesn’t have a lot to say, but it’s an undeniably entertaining comedy that will have you eager to go along for the ride.
The Boston Lyric Opera’s charming production of Chevalier de Saint-Georges’ only surviving opera, “The Anonymous Lover,” ran at the Huntington Theatre from Feb. 16 to 18. “The Anonymous Lover” continued the BLO’s exploration of love through four operas in their 2023-24 season with a Cyrano de Bergerac-esque story. The opera follows the widow Léontine (Brianna J. Robinson), who starts receiving letters from an anonymous admirer. Her secret lover, obscuring his identity out of fear of unreciprocated emotions, is none other than Léontine's close friend, Valcour (Omar Najmi). The story unfolds as a comedic dance of courtship between the two as Valcour covertly persuades Léontine to love again. While the audience watches the leads gradually inch closer to romance, love seems inescapable in the surrounding characters. Jeannette (Ashley Emerson) and Colin (Zhengyi Bai) represent the archetypal doting couple professing the joys of love in a marvelously rendered duet at their wedding. Even the comedic relief duo of Dorothée (Sandra Piques Eddy) and Ophémon (Evan Hughes) find themselves falling for each other throughout the chaotic revelry of courtship that unfolds.
The Tufts women’s swim and dive team took second place out of 11 teams at the 2024 NESCAC Championship Meet held at Middlebury College, scoring 1,628.5 points over the course of four days, outsourcing all but winner Williams College. The team was led by two first-place finishes from senior Jillian Cudney in the 100-freestyle and sophomore Quinci Wheeler in the 50-breaststroke. Wheeler set a NESCAC record in the 50 breaststroke with a time of 28.47. Several Tufts’ team records were also set in competition.
