Another month down and the River Reporter is still going strong. Reporters took a local approach this week, hitting the pavement and covering events that pertain specifically to those on campus. The chaos of midterms and selecting courses for the upcoming semester certainly provided a stress to those on campus. However, amidst the drama that occompanies the middle of any semester, the the Marist community was treated to an oppurtunity to see David Cook in concert. Read about the wonderful ballads and sing alongs that Cook provided and the pleasant surprise of a wonderful opening act in Ryan Starr. Not an American Idol fan? That’s okay- read about the highs and lows of the NCAA tournament that the Red Foxes certainly made leaps and bounds in. A common theme in many facets of life today, the “Green Revolution” has hit Marist and environmentally sound steps can be read about here. Attractions both near and far can hold any thespian’s attention with reviews of both The Little Mermaid, now on Broadway, and this year’s New York Maple Festival in Rhinebeck, New York. Reflecting upon situations hitting home, an overview of the scholarship opportunites on campus, both undergrad and post- grad, in relation to the current economic status of the U.S. can be seen in this edition. The campus continues to burst with energy, housing Hearts for Haiti, Stephen Lynch, and Relay for life. Finally, Saint Patricks Day is a staple of the New York lifestyle. The 278th St. Patricks’s Day parade took place in New York City and we were there to give you the play by play of the goings on of the day. The River Reporter staff is back in full force and here to provide you with the news that matters!
