The Philosophy Club screened the movie “Hannah Arendt” at their meeting on April 3. The movie follows the famous philosopher, who survived a detention camp in France, as she covered the trial of former Nazi Adolf Eichmann.
As she watches the trial and reads the transcripts, Arendt tries to “reconcile the mediocrity of the man” with his shocking crimes. The weak man in the glass cage is not the monster she anticipated. Eichmann’s defense is that he was following orders. He kept the trains of people moving without good or bad intentions – without thinking about any possible consequences.

The Rape Crisis Center of Savannah reports that only 32 percent of college students report violence by a dating partner, and approximately 90 percent of the victims know their attacker. Dating abuse isn’t simply about your partner’s annoying habits; it’s the physical, sexual, emotional and/or verbal abuse.
The reality is that dating violence is a crucial topic that continues to be wrongly silenced. On April 2, Armstrong’s CUB replaced the silence with action when it held “You the Man.”
“You the Man” is a one-man show which portrays five different characters tackling abusive scenarios. The event was held in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAMM) and incorporated a play and panel. The panel included Helen Schandolph, Armstrong counselor, and Kesha Gibson, Executive Director of the Rape Crisis Center in Savannah.
As the lights dimmed, turning the packed auditorium pitch black, the audience’s steady conversations turned into ear piercing cheers as We the Kings made their way onto the stage. Although the group was missing guitarist and background vocalist Coley O’Toole, who was with his wife welcoming their newborn into the world, the group still drove the crowd wild.
We the Kings started as a group of middle school boys from Bradenton, Fla., with a passion for music. They adopted their name from Kings Middle School where they met.
However, there were times when the group considered other occupations in their childhood. Travis Clark, the lead singer stated, “I had a weird dream about being a pizza delivery boy,” to which Hunter Thomsen proudly added, “I did that once.”
