IN NEWS: University President Anthony Monaco in a Feb. 12 announcement stated that the university will adapt three recommendations from the Tufts Divestment Working Group.

IN FEATURES: Last fall, when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia delivered the Snyder President’s Lecture Series, a number of Tufts students mobilized in protest against Scalia’s politics and the university’s decision to host him. Although this event sparked some dialogue about race and gender politics, with roughly 20 students involved, it remained relatively small, calling into question the activeness of the protest culture at Tufts.

IN ARTS: As the first episode of the “House of Cards” second season ends, Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) looks directly into camera and says, “Did you think I’d forgotten you? Perhaps you hoped I had … Welcome back.” If the hype surrounding this season’s release is any indication, audiences certainly have not forgotten about Frank. The second iteration of this political thriller is a leap forward — albeit with some boring moments — as the show explores power hungry characters willing to do the unthinkable.
