Studio Arts Building hosts lecture on artists, business
by The Daily Collegian
Jan 01, 2009
“The Massachusetts Small Business Development Center held a training session at the new studio arts building on the University of Massachusetts campus Tuesday, Dec. 9th.
The session, titled "The Creative Economy," was set up as an opportunity for students in the UMass College of Humanities and Fine Arts to become familiar with the business and marketing aspect of becoming a successful artist.”

Putting Five College libraries to the test
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“When finals week insomnia strikes, it's essential to have a library that's not just another place to study. Libraries come in all styles (and sizes), and that diversity is reflected among those of the Five Colleges.
Over the course of finals week, we observed tense students, caffeine-deprived procrastinators and chatty, social studiers in their natural habitats.”

Two guys, one column
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“We here at The Massachusetts Daily Collegian - and by we I mean myself (Sports Editor) and Mr. EIC himself, Michael King - have been covering UMass sports for far too long.
So who better to go to when you want to know the results of UMass hockey vs. Bemidji State (who?) - before it even happens?
So let's take a look at how well things shake down over the first few weeks of winter break.”

Meets to help prep swimmers for A-10s
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“The path to the Atlantic 10 Championship is taking an international detour this winter for the Massachusetts men's and women's swimming and diving programs, as both teams will travel to San Juan, Puerto Rico for the Loyola Invitational on Jan. 10.
The swimmers will be joined once again in San Juan by an elite collection of UMass divers that shredded competition from across the east at last weekend's Galbraith Diving Invitational, where the Maroon and White swept all four first-place finishes.”

Next month's progress crucial for UMass
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“While most students at the University of Massachusetts will get a chance to relax over winter break, there will be no rest for players on the Massachusetts basketball team as the season rolls on.
After a rocky start to their season, the Minutemen (2-6) will look to get back on track by making a run in Atlantic 10 play.”

Track, rowing, skiing teams almost set to start seasons
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“For many college students, the holiday break generally means relaxation. For winter athletes, however, it means the start of an intense season. In the midst of the frigid air coming our way, our vacant campus will find that the action is just starting to heat up.”
UMass looks for progress over break
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“The holiday break will give UMass coach Marnie Dacko ample time to get the Massachusetts women's basketball team ready for its rigorous Atlantic 10 Conference schedule.
The Minutewomen (5-5) will prepare by fine-tuning their play in the closing games of their non-conference schedule.”

Back up your boycott against both bigots and business
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“What if you threw a boycott and nobody showed up?
That's exactly what happened to pro-gay marriage activists on Wednesday when they staged a nationwide demonstration to protest the passing of California's anti-gay marriage initiative, known as Proposition 8.”

Scoring morals by better role models
by The Daily Collegian
Dec 11, 2008
“As the Plaxico Burress incident proves once again, athletes are not good role models. They've never been particularly good role models - going right back to the grand old days of Mickey Mantle or Joe Namath.
It just seems that over the past few years, I've heard parents suggest that watching Tom Brady throw accurate footballs somehow translates into him being a good role model for their kids.”
