What’s for Lunch

Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist, just a student sharing what I found on the SF State campus. You’ve heard it before: “Pack your food, it’s healthier. You’ll save time and money.” But sometimes, it’s not that simple, and packing your food doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthier or cheaper. From a steaming bowl of pho

Concert Review: Porter Robinson

Lights showered down on hundreds of people filling the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium last Friday, their bodies moving and hands waving to the thumping bass emitting from the stage. On occasion, a colorful LED hoola hoop or a person lucky enough to find shoulders to climb on find their way to the surface of the

An Intro to the Depot

Being a student here for more than a few years now, you think I would know the ins-and-outs of the campus pretty well; apparently, that is not really the case. Before this semester, I had never been to the Depot. I had heard about it from time to time, but never even knew where it

Still Sort of Gr8 – iOS8 Impressions

Disclaimer: This was tested using a 64 gigabyte iPhone 5. iOS7 was a drastic step up from iOS6. Apple finally hit their stride by streamlining what they had, borrowing from Android, and making it look a whole hell of a lot slicker. It has been a year since iOS7 was pushed on us and I

Hazing Tragedy Shakes Bay Area Greek Life

Along Malcolm X Plaza, fraternities and sororities set up booths to advertise Fall “rush,” where prospective students participate in a recruitment period in hopes of gaining an invitation to the Greek organization of their choice. Justin Lovell, 22, historian of SF State’s Pi Kappa Phi chapter, remembers when he pledged his fraternity. “It was honestly

Best Boba Places in SF

With a dry and sweltering atmosphere, only two words can describe this Bay Area moment – disgustingly hot. Out comes the cargo shorts, bro tanks, and flower crowns. No, we’re not at Coachella. We’re in San Francisco, and it just hit 72 degrees. The sun’s blazing rays make me feel grimy and parched. During these

5th Annual Giant Race

Photos and Video by Martin Bustamante On a cool, clear, early Sunday morning, rare for the normally foggy city, runners began to line the Embarcadero in front of AT&T Park to participate in the 5th annual Giant Race. The runners gathered together to run the half marathon, 10k or 5k, all for a great cause,

Beats N’ Stuff #1: rad remixes

Greetings! I’m Caty McCarthy, a 21-year-old student here at San Francisco State University (obviously). For the next few months, I’ll be blogging every other week about music I dig. I have a pretty broad taste in tunes, from J-Pop to Hip-Hop to K-Indie to Alternative, so I’m hoping that the miscellaneous themes I come up

Remembering 9/11

Certain moments in history are so monumental that most people will never forget where they were when it happened or when they heard the news. For this generation, 9/11 is that moment. I am sure I will always remember how I found out about 9/11. I had just recently started the fifth grade at Carr
