Shoshana Weiss “Entertainment Weekly” is a magazine filled with the types of articles young adults our age can appreciate: articles regarding the next best films, TV series, music and books.

The Drexel women’s lacrosse team lost two and won one out of their last three games — April 22, 24 and 28 —but to say they simply lost two and won the other would be misguiding. Now tied as the ninth ranked team in the nation in the Inside Lacrosse National Rankings, the James Madison [...]
