Campus Connect: College Sports, Entertainment & Viral News – 3/13

It’s Wednesday, March 13, and we are closing in on St. Patrick’s Day. College life can be busy, so at times it can be tough to keep up with the daily news cycle. That’s why we bring you Campus Connect, where you can catch the latest news in college sports and entertainment to keep on top of the buzz that everyone on campus will be talking about.

What happened last night? What events are coming up today? We have you covered with all of that and more.

Let’s dive right in.


College Sports News

Entrance into college is one of the most eventful times of a high school student’s life. The acceptance letter is a symbol that all the student’s hard work over the past four years has paid off. Getting into elite colleges is tough for any student, but some celebrities are trying to cheat the system, according to NBC News.

New evidence has come to light about the large-scale college entrance exam cheating scheme. While actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are the biggest names involved in the scheme, the names of the college coaches involved in the scheme have been revealed to the public.


COED Girl of the Day

Today, we feature Dominique Arciniega, a student at the University of California-Berkeley. Dominique, a pre-med student who is part of the Golden Bears dance team, is also a member of the Alpha Phi sorority on campus.


Entertainment News

Nerd culture (and I say that endearingly considering I consume a majority of the entertainment out there that’s considered “nerdy”) and shoe culture are two very different subsections of pop culture, and because of that, they rarely intersect. There aren’t many Lord of the Rings and Jordan brand collabs out there, is what I’m saying.

Disney has dropped its first full-length trailer for the live-action picture Aladdin. The trailer has been met with positive reaction as fans anticipate the new generation of the classic film.
