Lifestyle Staff Writer| Ashley Edgell| ae905316@ohio.edu

Ohio University students kicked off fest season this past weekend with Milliron Fest, followed by Mill Fest. Judging by the crowded street and the stories shared, Mill Fest was far from disappointing for Bobcats this year. The large crowd, the loud music, and the alcohol consumption are just a few reasons as to why the students of Ohio University love fest season. Some look forward to Mill Fest, while others can’t wait for Palmer Fest. Which fest do the students of Athens, Ohio like the best?

You all have heard something about the march – whether it be positive or negative. You probably even know someone who went to one, considering there were over 600 sister marches. I went to the march in D.C. with my mom, cousin, and aunt while staying with my godfather and his family – just a few metro stops from where the march occurred.

For over fifty years, Black Friday shopping has remained a tradition in the homes of many Americans. With a neat history and a well-known name, millions of Americans leave their comfortable, warm homes to participate. Bonding with family members, pulling all-nighters and finding good deals have always made for happy shoppers, but with the coming of the digital age, the Internet has introduced us to an alternative way to spend that Christmas money. For some, the fifteen-year-old Cyber Monday has become the new Black Friday.

Bobcats and their moms sipped coffee and painted mugs this past moms weekend in Front Room to live music from the Columbus-based band, Nick D’ & The Believers. And trust me when I say the room started shaking. It certainly wasn’t the typical coffee shop mood music we’re used to, and it wasn’t the same atmosphere for the band either. Lead singer Nick D’Andrea told the audience that the band isn’t used to seeing everyone’s faces (or sober people), as they usually are playing in a bar-like setting.
