You don't own an opinion
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“Over the past two years I’ve silently written for TechNews, the part of the paper I looked forward to reading the most (aside from the ironically defunct Tech section) was the Opinion section. The reason why I have a peculiar fondness for the section is because it demonstrates the naivety of college students, myself included, and the world’s ignorance in microcosm. The 21st century has gifted common man with tools enabling social networks and we’ve taken to them like flies on a rotting piece of fruit. While I can’t deny the benefits of constant contact with close friends or loved ones, the flood of information has diluted our perceptions of opinion.”

Letter from the Editor: what you owe IIT
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“When I first started my career at IIT , this university was completely different. There were a handful of students who were involved in reviving large campus organizations like Union Board and the Student Government Association. There was no BOG and there was no BIG Event for IIT to boast of. I remember feeling like I was doomed to a rather boring, uneventful college career because of the school I had chosen, like I was being somehow robbed of a quintessential part of my life. I came in expecting challenge, fun, growth, and liveliness but I was worried that IIT would not be able to really offer me any of those things.”

IIT students compete in first disc golf tournament
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“The Computer Science Department sponsored a Disc Golf tournament on Saturday at 4pm, and it was a lot of fun. Only eleven people showed up, but it was enough to break up into three groups and have a good time. There was a constant threat of rain, but thankfully the weather cooperated. All skill levels were welcomed, though it seemed that most players had played before and were at least moderately good.”

Keep off the Grass offers insight on balancing identities, inspires thoughts on life
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“When you read a book like Keep Off the Grass by Karan Bajaj, you tend to write about it, too. A book that is unlike anyone’s usual choice – romance, comedy or thriller – a light and quick read, it inspires a few thoughts through the characters in the story.”

Deadly Premonition is a budget game worth playing
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“Playing video games is an expensive hobby. As hyped blockbusters come in greater quantities, it’s hard to justify a risky venture into an unfamiliar, unadvertised and unwanted title. With that in mind, investing in a game should go beyond the wallet, and the game should go out of its way to respect the ample amounts of time a player pours into it. Deadly Premonition, an open-world horror title from developer Access Games, started doing the opposite. When I booted up the disc, I was treated to a sloppy mess. It looked like something that spawned out of the PlayStation 2 era: the control scheme was outdated, the graphics were unbelievably bad and design issues were all over the place. Anyone with common sense would take the disc out, attempt to reseal it and persuade the retail store they bought it from to take it back.”

CSO and Hubbard Street Dance pair up for an all-around show
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“Last week, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra put on a show that was not only pleasing to the ears, but also visually stimulating. For the seventh time, they combined with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago for an interesting performance. Obviously, with huge attendance expectations, the show reserved four time slots in the symphony’s schedule. Throughout the performance, the orchestra was always on hand to provide a wonderful soundtrack, and was conducted by Uruguayan Carlos Kalmar.”

Hawks take a win against Crimson Waves
by TechNews
Jan 01, 2018
“Last Friday the Hawks hosted the Crimson Waves of Calumet College of St. Joseph. The game started off with the Waves putting two early runs up on the board in the top of the first, which the Hawks answered with three runs of their own. Sophomore Nick Wise started things off with a single, and senior Jessie Stepniewski followed suit with one of his own. Senior Kyle Guglielmo hit another single, freshman Jack Kosar pinch ran for Guglielmo, and Stepniewski and Wise both scored on a hit by senior Andy Kungis. Kosar then scored on a wild pitch to give the Hawks a one run lead over the Crimson Waves.”
