The office of residential life received around 3,740 housing requests for fall term, requiring spaces in Cutter-Shabazz Hall, Alpha Chi Alpha fraternity, Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Chinese Language House to convert into bedrooms.

Smith: The Magic of Marvel

Since its reinvention with the 2008 release of “Iron Man,” it seems that Marvel Studios can do no wrong. It has released nine more live action movies, every single one of which has earned more than $250 million dollars. “The Avengers” (2012) and “Iron Man 3” (2013) each earned over $1 billion worldwide.
