The annual Juried Student Art Exhibition is currently on display in the Student Union Gallery; in it are the 26 favorites as chosen by this year’s juror, Chad Carpenter. Carpenter, the creator and artist of Tundra comics, was tasked with choosing what he considered to be the best works out of the over 70 submissions, a task he said wasn’t easy. “I think I did a pretty good job getting the ones I thought would best fit what I was looking for, but it was tough,” he said. “You get anybody doing what I did, and you’re going to get 26 different answers.

2008 was a good year for music. There were a lot of great debut releases, some great albums from well known artists and even a few from bands that were long thought dead (excluding, of course, "Chinese Democracy"). The big themes seemed to be 80s' influenced electronic and mellow, often eerie, folk.
YouTube alleges that more video is uploaded to their site in one month than the three major US networks have created in the last 60 years. Critics would dismiss it as all junk, and there certainly is plenty, but is it really just quantity over quality?
