21 "Hamilton" Signs Present At The Women's Marches
Laura Heywood

Our country was blessed to have "Hamilton: An American Musical" grace our presence and we all haven't been able to get over it since. With the new election, specifically with the outcome, many people clung to the musical "Hamilton." Something powerful happened this weekend. More women participated in the Women's March on Washington compared to Trump's Inauguration.

There were a large amount of people that crowded Washington, D.C., but many people around the nation (and world) participated in marches located in several cities. So many people created signs to carry at the marches. I was overwhelmed to see how many "Hamilton" signs that were present at marches around the nation. There were some that completely blew me away.

2. Gail Plummer-Davis (Denver, Colorado)

3. Landon McConnell (Kansas City, Missouri)

4. Sarah Betram (Champaign, Illinois)

5. Anne Farrand (Ann Arbor, Michigan)

We are overwhelmed. I am amazed by the amount of people that were present at the Women's Marches all around the world. When asking for these pictures from people, an overwhelming number of them told me their personal experience, including the amount of people that were present. I promise it was a rather large amount of people ranging from 2,000 to 500,000. I can't help but smile knowing how proud Lin-Manuel Miranda must be. He can't take credit for the Women's March of course. He for sure can take credit for "Hamilton". He created something so much bigger than himself. He helped people understand history. History is still happening.

The nation needs love, support, respect, and comfort in a time where many people don't know how to react to the situation. Choosing to go to the marches was a brilliant idea and I can't express the respect I have for every single person that went and didn't create any act of violence. If you haven't listened to "Hamilton" and would love a crash course in great American history, this is your shot. Remember. We are young, scrappy, and hungry. We can't throw away this shot.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
