Budget cuts are coming. Consider being aware of their implications. School leadership is holding a meeting on the topic today in the Elvey Building’s Globe Room starting 8:30 a.m. In fairness, that’s pretty early to ask someone to visit West Ridge with the outcome almost certainly being getting bummed out. But it’s probably worth paying attention to. – Spencer Tordoff / Editor-in-Chief

It’s Daisy Ridley’s birthday today! To those of you who don’t know who that is, she played Rey in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and I’m constantly looking for a reason to rewatch that. There’s still a Blockbuster open on College Road, you know. If you’ve never seen the movie (or if you have) consider relaxing after what’s likely going to be a rough Monday and settling in with some friends for a good old fashioned movie night.Kyrie Long / Copy Editor
