October 26, 2013 - 9:00am

Although it may seem far away, Spring 2014 is right around the corner. Some companies’ internship deadlines have already passed, and some companies have even completed their hiring process for the semester. However, if you haven’t gotten started on the application process - now is when you should start. Don’t fret--you still have time! First, start out with a list of companies you would like to work at. If you don’t know where you’d like to work visit the Career Center or the CareerLink, or speak with an advisor to get some information and guidance about good internships to take on.

1.) Psycho (1960) dir. Alfred Hitchcock You’ve never seen a mama’s boy like Norman Bates. Starring the lovely Janet Leigh and the creepy-but-still-kind-of-handsome Anthony Perkins, Psycho is a standout in Hitchcock’s superb collection of horror movies that don’t need to resort to gory bloodbaths in order to make that chilling impact. (Although the infamous shower scene is more than a little bit graphic.) READ MORE

  Aside from midterms, boot and scarf weather, and pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, October can only mean one thing: Halloween is here! And what better way to unwind than to hit the city with your girls and guys for a night of fun.

As a 19 year-old sophomore, he is currently in CGS but plans on moving down Comm. Ave. to SMG next year where he will be studying finance. However, a businessman wasn’t his original dream job; Brett wanted to be a veterinarian as a kid. READ MORE
