CandiDates

Hi there!  Candi here.  Alright, you got me, my name isn't really Candi.  But behind this mysterious alias and accompanying silhouette, I'm one of you.  I'm a student walking amongst you on the sidewalks, sitting next to you in class and beating you out of that parking spot.  Nice to finally meet you!
I'm here to talk to you about the "L" word.  You know what word I'm referring to.  But first let's clarify that this is not an advice column (however if you'd like my not-so-expert advice anyway, feel free to tweet me- Candi_Dates_).  This is an observation, discussion, inferential column regarding common woes of the dating world.  We can figure this out together, people!  Have an idea you'd like me to talk about?  Let me know!

UNO Theatre presents “Or,” a play about conflict

"All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn, for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds," says Virginia Woolf in "A Room of One's Own."
Sarah Fogarty Campbell, director of UNO's production of "Or," did a fantastic job executing the story of Aphra Behn with three actors participating in the performance.  The play starred Elizabeth Nye, Victoria Luther and Scottie Pace.  Luther and Pace each played three different characters, while Nye was the main character, Aphra Behn.
