Matt King Puts His Vines on Top

By Charlotte Rose
May 11, 2014 - 12:42am

There are two types of people in this world: those who jam out to Beyoncé in the car, and liars.  While everyone may be guilty of some intense lip-syncing when Queen Bey comes on, they may not be used to thousands of people actually watching them in action, especially not repeatedly in a six second loop.  Matt King is a little more used to the attention: with over 330,000 Revines, Matt’s most popular vine (where he pulls some crazy faces in the car as “Love on Top” plays on the radio) has taken the senior advertising major to small-screen stardom.

Picture yourself calmly walking through campus and then all of a sudden you see her and you think, “Who’s that girl?!” (in the tune of the New Girl theme song of course). She has one of those faces that stop you dead in your tracks. Not only is she one of the most stunning people I have ever laid eyes on, but Brazilian beauty Raquel Toledo is also one of the sweetest. Luckily, HCTX managed to snag an interview with her before she reaches Victoria’s Secret Angel level of fame.

Stephen LaPatrick Owens II, a Government and Pre-Law major, has a big dream that he's working extremely hard to achieve. 21 year-old Owens is working to be President of our great country. No, seriously! This man has everything planned out and is ready to make big things happen. Plus, he can do a GREAT President Obama impersonation. But that's not the reason why he wants to be President. Besides being a great speaker, having a powerful voice and already looking like a prestigious figure, Owens cares. He cares about his family, friends and the well-being of our home: the United States of America. READ MORE

Lights Up on Trey Curtis

By Felicia Fitzpatrick
April 1, 2014 - 10:20pm

In Sister Act 2, Sister Mary Clarence (Whoopi Goldberg) serves Rita (Lauryn Hill) some serious realness. “If you wake up and the only thing you can think of singing, then you’re meant to be a singer, girl.” Clearly, Trey Curtis woke up thinking about performing, because that is exactly what he is meant to do. Curtis will begin his performances of "Usnavi de la Vega", the main role of In The Heights, a main-stage production of the Tony-award winning musical, next week, and he’s only a freshman. Don’t worry, I feel inadequate, too. READ MORE

Getting Crafty with Katherine Delfeld

By Corisa Smith

Home. Your childhood bedroom that still has a section of a wall dedicated to Jesse McCartney. Your Mom’s homemade brownies. The couch in the living room that perfectly fits your body. A lot of us at college miss the feeling of home when we are living on our own for the first time. But if you put in a little effort and a lot of creativity, you can create an oasis in your dorm, apartment, or college house that makes you feel at home again. I recently got the chance to talk to Junior English major and golden girl Katherine Delfeld about the beginning of spring, photography, and creating a bit of home. READ MORE

  We all grew up with the classic, The Wizard of Oz, but so much happened before Dorothy dropped into the land of Oz, which we learn about in the musical phenomenon, Wicked. The musical, composed by Stephen Schwartz, explains the untold story of Oz’s witches: Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. The Second National Tour has been here at Bass Concert Hall since February 18 and closes Sunday, March 9. Her Campus Texas chatted with actresses, Jennifer DiNoia, and Hayley Podschun, who portray "Elphaba" and "Glinda", respectively, about their training, their Wicked audition process, and what it’s like playing these two such powerful women.
