On 'Yeezus': Yeezy season is upon us

9/5/13 4:03pm

The darkly distorted passion project of producer-rapper/designer Kanye West dropped the same day as North Carolina MC J Cole’s standout sophomore LP Born Sinner and ever-evolving pop-frat weed rapper Mac Miller’s second major label release, Watching Movies with the Sound Off. Cole and Miller delighted both fans and critics alike with cinematic production, an auteur-level attention to design detail and, most importantly to many young fans, official web streams of both of the albums in their entirety a full week before their releases. Yeezus didn’t produce a single, wasn’t available for pre-order and doesn’t even have album art.

A decade of change: Class of 2017 represents ‘new Elon’ compared to Class of 2007

It was only 10 years ago when the class of 2007 stepped onto campus for the beginning of their college journey. But much at Elon has changed in the span of a decade, and the Elon known to students 10 years ago is radically different from the university incoming freshmen will find in fall 2013. “Elon has made lots of changes, from raising more money, to adding additional buildings, to more alumni involvement,” said Melanie May, Communications Manager for Admissions at Elon.
