Happy St. Patrick's Day

That special time of the year that all college students wait for is finally here… St. Patrick’s Day! It’s the one weekend a year where it’s ok to “relax” and “let loose.” If you’re too young for a good old fashioned pub crawl, or just not in the mood, here are few other ways to spend your weekend.

Matisse: In Search of True Painting

This weekend is the final chance to view Matisse: In Search of True Painting ​at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibit showcases the famed French painter’s iconic works while visually explaining how his style and technique evolved throughout the years.
