Will justice be served?
Most of us at Drexel, even if we haven’t been to the Hans in four years, even if we haven’t had a dining plan in as long, even if we’ve never been to the Urban Eatery, still complain about campus dining. It’s expensive, and a generally poor value when compared to similarly-sized institutions. And it’s mandatory. Those of us in the know blame (in addition to the University) Sodexo, a French company with a diverse portfolio including janitorial services at schools and other institutions, food service at universities, schools, prisons, and hospitals, provide facilities management for large public and private organizations and through their subsidiary, Sodexo Justice Services, they operate private prisons in the United Kingdom.

Christmas in May
In the past five months I have had a lot of time to think about Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year when you’re stuck spending gratuitous time with people you don’t like or, depending on how large your family is, don’t even know.

From a young age I started displaying a small, pre-lit Christmas tree in my room each year for the holiday season and decorated it based on my current style preferences. I have since graduated to a larger tree for my current apartment, but over the years I have accumulated quite the collection of decorations, most of which I have outgrown stylistically. This year I had the idea to do a modern interpretation on decorating for the holidays with a metallic-themed tree. Rather than buying all new ornaments, I decided to save a couple bucks and revamp my eclectic collection of ornaments to fit my current taste. I bought a can of metallic sliver spray paint and a bottle of loose glitter and went to town on my old ornaments. To get the same results, follow my step-by-step instructions to make your own do-it-yourself metallic ornaments.

Kimmel Center decks the halls
Even though the weather is not feeling the Christmas spirit, the Philadelphia Orchestra most certainly is. Cristian Macelaru and Charlotte Blake Alston ushered in the Christmas season Dec. 1 with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s “Holiday Spectacular” at the Kimmel Center. The concert showcased classic Christmas music from around the world and many cute surprises.
