The independent student publication of The Unversity at Buffalo, since 1950


Members of The Buffalo Chips perform the group’s opening number at their “What the Funk” concert at Slee Hall.

Fun, funk and firsts

Clad in groovy glasses and retro outfits, the singers overwhelm the stage with good vibes and funky dances, every moment and accessory touched with personal flair. 

“Spencer” is the latest film chronicling the life of Diana, Princess of Wales.

Diana, Princess of Wails

“Spencer” is not the name one typically thinks of when remembering the former princess of Wales. It’s a name associated with a certain ordinariness, of a woman before her devastating marriage and claustrophobic relationship with the royal family.


The five most anticipated films of fall 2021

The new season means cold nights, bitter winds and rainy days. But as students take refuge inside from the chilling weather, another season rolls in — the fall film season. With new movies releasing every week, here are five stand-outs for students’ viewing pleasures:

Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill delights the crowd during a 2015 concert.

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’ is the name of the game on ‘Expensive Pain’

Few artists fly as successfully under-the-radar as Meek Mill. Even with anthems like “Dreams and Nightmares” still bringing clubgoers to their feet nearly a decade later, Meek has always been somewhat overshadowed by industry pioneers like Drake and Kendrick Lamar. But with a dedicated legion of stans, Meek seems unbothered by his rivals, returning as confidently and comfortably as ever on his latest album, “Expensive Pain.”

Season three of "Sex Education" released on Netflix on Sept. 17.

‘Sex Education’ Season 3 succeeds in its characters, stumbles in its comedy

When Issac deleted Otis’ voicemail to Maeve professing his undying love for her in the final scene of season two’s finale of “Sex Education,” fans weren’t exactly expecting season three to feature the early and tragic death of a cat, Johnathan, — who’s owners night of frisky activity sent a microwave oven flying across the room, crushing him to death — or travel as far as an underground Nigerian gay club.  

Cinderella (2021) “far more resembles the pumpkin before the carriage in this adaptation.”

Bippity boppity flop

Once upon a time, Hollywood found its own glass slipper with the fairytale, “Cinderella,” which spawned a trove of beloved movies like Disney’s 1950 animated feature of the same name and Hilary Duff’s teen rom-com “A Cinderella Story.”
