Another Night of Comedy with AKT!

On October 6th, Awkward Kids Talking filled the auditorium with a laughing audience as they performed their first show of the year, the Newbie Show, to debut their new cast members and provide an entertaining night for all in attendance.

Love, Simon: Let Me Be Perfectly Queer

Friday night got you wanting something to make you cry and a little gay? Well there’s only one answer: Greg Berlanti’s new film, Love, Simon. The film is generous and cruel, and teaches us that even though life tends to not be fair, we should continue to believe in some form of hope.

The Post Reminds Us Why Press is Powerful
