This week on campus was as classic as every coming-of-age movie made us think it could be. Between midterms in full swing, students laid out on the lawn to enjoy 80 degree weather and attended buzzer-beating basketball, concerts around the city and the VandyBoys’ Opening Day. 

Concert season returns to Nashville

Nashville concert season continues to flourish as false spring defrosts the city. Many artists debuted EPs, such as Knox at The End and Annie DiRusso. Adam Melchor came to the Brooklyn Bowl for his second headlining tour through Nashville. 

The end of basketball, the beginning of baseball

The women’s basketball team lost its last home game of the season against LSU and will now prepare for the SEC tournament at the start of March. While the men’s basketball team still has one more home game, the Commodores won their second matchup against Florida at home by a hefty 88-72 score on Saturday night. Next door on Hawkins Field, the VandyBoys opened their season with two mid-week matchups. They lost their first game to Central Arkansas but won by a wide margin against UAB on Wednesday. This weekend, they faced off against UCLA. Come Sunday, the team won the series after a close 2-1 win against the Bruins.

Editor’s picks 

Students emerged from their dorm rooms and winter hibernation to lounge on lawn chairs, picnic blankets and hammocks around campus this week as the weather hit highs that reminded us of April. Only the yet-to-bloom flowers on campus are left to remind us there is winter left to come.
