The "Tosca" Post

What do you get when you put an artist, an entertainer, and a corrupt official in a church together? You might think the "Hunchback of Notre Dame." Wrong. You get Giacomo Puccini's seminal, immediately accessible operatic hit, "Tosca."

The Frustrations Post

I have just been dancing. Because it's the end of another long week and I am halfway through what they call "Journalism Boot Camp."

The New House Post (Look, I made a pun!)

I am now living in a house with 4 other Syracuse Newhouse Journalism students. My first day, after lugging up my three suitcases, I open the door to find a fine layer of dust coating the floors.

But after some explorations later, I discover that I have a basement.
