The University of Calgary Dinos women’s volleyball team is currently on track to make the Canada West playoffs again this season, something the program has accomplished every year for over a decade. 
 The Dinos’s 2011–12 season came to an abrupt end in a best-of- three CW quarterfinal to the Trinity Western University Spartans two… Continue reading Women’s volleyball

Volleysaurs pushed to extinction

By Daorcey Le Bray

“Dino Extinction Tour.” It’s a popular shirt for $20 in the University of Alberta gym. The simple white tee sports a fossilized Rex and the dates the Dinos men’s volleyball team meet the University of Alberta Golden Bears this season. Hurtful enough to make a Dinos fan angry. True enough to make him cry. Jan.… Continue reading Volleysaurs pushed to extinction

This latest production, presented by the University of Calgary’s Department of Drama, has a contemporary meaning that is… Continue reading Universal Crucible

Dance office initiates student letter campaign

By Erica Harding

Editor, the Gauntlet,Re: “Reworked Masterpiece,” Oct. 3, 2002. On Monday, Oct. 7, I picked up a copy of the Gauntlet to read the review on Sharp Edges. To my disappointment, I found an article which shredded most of the show. In the arts community, bad reviews can be part of the business; however, critics usually… Continue reading Dance office initiates student letter campaign

John Wort Hannam and the Sound Merchants Pocket Full of Holes

By Daorcey Le Bray

The surprise about Pocket Full of Holes is that it doesn’t fall for the trap that capture most folk bands–the music actually has some variance. On their debut album, John Wort Hannam and the Sound Merchants produce a handful of honest, sentimental songs with a wide range of emotions, themes and sounds that are a… Continue reading John Wort Hannam and the Sound Merchants Pocket Full of Holes
