Colors in Harmony began in 1999 as a way for students to showcase their talents and culture through performances and a fashion show. Performances, which will include traditional dances, fashion and music, will be as diverse and rich with culture as the students are. This event is a way to learn about the backgrounds and cultures of students that make EMU’s campus unique.
Let me start off by saying that I am not an overly emotional person. I rarely cry during movies or while reading. You could say I’m a tough critic. That being said, the 2012 novel “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green made me cry like a baby in the best possible way.

Winter is upon us. Winter gets a bad reputation for being cold and in Michigan it means driving on terrible roads.
Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends and the best home cooked meal imaginable. It’s also a time to remember what you’re thankful for and the wonderful things and people you have in your life. But many people may not have as much to be thankful for.
There are few things in this world that make me cringe. The phrase “Black Friday shopping” is one of them. I guess I can’t be too hard on the shopping aspect of the day because I’ve never been able to do it. I was always the miserable person working.
This point in the semester can make or break a grade. Staying on top of things can be much less stressful if you stay organized. Final exams and term papers are almost a month away, too close for comfort if you ask me. The good news is organizing and preparing for finals is something you can start doing now.
The problem I have with most pubs or bars is that I can either get great food or great beer, but never both. The Wurst Bar, 705 W Cross St., has solved that problem for me with a variety of menu options and a fantastic beer list. It ranks high on my list of local bars.

Fall is officially here. That means a new semester, pumpkin spice-flavored everything and time to break out your jackets and boots. But don’t forget about the seasonal beers.
If you had walked into Corner Brewery at 7:30 p.m. last Thursday, you would have been greeted by a unique ambiance.
Writing poetry can be difficult. Unique ideas that haven’t been done before are hard to come by sometimes, and the dreaded writer’s block kicks in. I had all but given up on writing creative poetry when I discovered that there is a way to make poems without having to write them. You can “find” them.
If you’re like me you often have trouble when trying to find unique gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people in your life. Well what if there’s a gift shop right here in Ypsilanti that can help you with that problem?
