Nicole is a senior majoring in journalism at Stony Brook University. She joined The Statesman fall semester of her freshman year and expects to continue writing for them until she graduates later this year. She couldn’t be happier being the A&E editor and looks forward to expanding her writers' involvement with the paper. Her favorite experience in the arts section was covering the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.
While Nicole does enjoy the arts, she has a passion for international affairs. Currently, she can speak three different languages and doesn’t plan on stopping there. One day, she hopes to work for Al Jazeera or the BBC.
“Gambino! Gambino! Gambino!” It was 6:56 in the evening, the show had not even started and yet the crowd was chanting Childish Gambino’s name over and over. As the night went on, the crowd’s energy level only intensified.
Celebrating a friend’s birthday on a college campus can often be difficult. Sure you can buy that person a gift and decorate the room with whatever, but when it comes to a cake, if you don’t make it yourself, you’re out of luck.
When spring hits Stony Brook, one question starts circulating around the campus: “who is performing for the spring concert?” So far this year, rumors have been bouncing around on social media sites, but it was not until today that the announcement was made official. Diplo and Childish Gambino will be coming to Stony Brook.

In honor of The Statesman having its first ever “Alcohol Issue” this week’s dish has been specially picked and includes alcohol in the recipe.

If only there was a healthy and filling snack that college students could eat in between meals to keep the cravings away. But wait, there is! For all the pasta lovers, I’ve decided to make a healthy macaroni salad.
It is no secret that college students are less than healthy when it comes to the food they eat. Foods like Easy Mac and ramen are appealing to the average college student’s budget as well as to those who do not want to wait around for dinner to cook. But are they good for you? Heck no! I do not know about you, but after a while, I grow sick of that food and look for something with more flavor and nutrients. So, if you are ready to take that step away from typical college food, this dish may be exactly what you need.
