As summer comes to an end, spend some of your last free days on Misquamicut State Beach in Westerly, Rhode Island. Here’s a few reasons Misquamicut is worth it.
The Huskies currently have five quarterbacks on their roster, not including the newly committed Russell Dixon, and the coaching staff made it clear that all five will be given a chance to win the starting job. However, there really are three that are serious contenders, and quarterbacks coach Mike Moyseenko broke them each down.
During the summer, the University of Connecticut’s population dips far below capacity. There’s no rush of students moving together from class to class, no fights for a seat on the bus, no need to mark your territory in the library with a sweatshirt or a water bottle when you use the restroom. But that doesn’t mean campus is totally deserted.
The Daily Campus interviewed JT Lewis (R), a 19-year-old from Newtown and is a rising UConn sophomore who recently began a campaign for Connecticut state senate in the 28th district. On Dec. 14, 2012, he lost his brother, Jesse, in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Lewis hopes his campaign will bring change to the state.
Saturday, July 13 and Sunday, July 14 marked the return of the annual NYC festival Greatest Day Ever!, and just as in the past the lineup and performances didn’t disappoint. The festival has always been billed as an electronic and rap music-oriented event, although other genres of music are certainly represented.
British singer-songwriter and international musical success Ed Sheeran released a collaboration album titled “No. 6 Collaborations Project,” on Friday, July 12.

Similar to the transportive quality of its earlier summer production of “Mamma Mia!”, the Connecticut Repertory Theatre’s second production in the Nutmeg Summer Series sent its audience on a journey through time and space--but with a less lighthearted storyline. CRT’s production of “Cabaret,” directed by Scott LaFeber, brought audiences to late 1920s Berlin and portrayed how life in Germany changed as the Nazis rose to power.
After sharp criticism of their 2016 presidential primary cycle, the Democratic National Committee promised the 2020 primary debates would be more fair. At first it appeared it would be better with earlier debates, low entrance criteria, and candidates in the first round being split randomly instead of into “Varsity and JV”. However, the efforts were in vain as the cable television debate format is fundamentally flawed.
One in every eight low-income renting families cannot afford to pay their rent, and a similar proportion believe they will be evicted soon. Those who manage to avoid homelessness often cope with poor housing, disadvantaged neighborhoods, and unfair rental terms.
There are some events that are just quintessentially “summer:” Beach days, block parties, outdoor concerts and local carnivals are just a few that come to mind. So what happens when you combine some of these perfectly in-season events? You’ll end up with the biggest and best summer party of the season, which is exactly how one would define the Super Mega Ultra Giant Mad Decent Block Party Festival, taking place on July 20 and 21 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
