This weekend’s featured movie is Trumbo, playing at Viking Theater on January 22th and 23th at 5pm7:30pm, and 10pm.


Trumbo: “In 1947, Dalton Trumbo was Hollywood’s top screenwriter, until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs.”


milo is my rap crush. He is a rapper from Milwaukee who has endeared his fans with his humble wit and artistic flow as well as for his collaborations with other artists. I first found milo as a high schooler and was enthralled with his “milo takes baths” ep.

Tracks like “The Ballad of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy” were still exciting to me almost a year later when he released his double eps “things that happen at day” / “things that happen at night.” their outstandingproduction and hidden tracks blew me away

That same year, he released his first album under his scallops hotel moniker as well as his follow up ep, Cavalcade. In 2014, he released an ep with Alexander Kollman as RED WALL and the first full length milo release, A Toothpaste Suburb.

This past year, he released his second albums as milo and scallops hotel both to great acclaim. “so the flies don’t come” even won Mass Appeal’s readers choice contest for best album, beating To Pimp a Butterfly in the first round of voting. He also became increasingly featured in both local milwaukee artists and low end theory affiliate projects.

International Night Auditions!

Hello fellow Oles! This year marks the 50th Anniversary of International Night. The event itself is going to take place on March 12th, and we want YOU to be in it!

This year, the theme for International Night is Chasing Tales: Exploring World Stories. It revolves around interactive story telling which is specific to different regions of the world.

The International Student Organization (ISO) is calling for auditions! In the past, most performances during International Night have been dances and musical arts, but we welcome any other submissions as well if deemed appropriate. We encourage performances from the entire student body, regardless of nationalities, ethnicities or cultures.

If you’re unfamiliar with International Night or just stage-nervous, here is last year’s celebration.

The deadline for signup is February 11th. Auditions take place on February 14th, 15th and 16th.

If you’re interested in participating, please contact Jauza Khaleel at
