Why? I live in the University Village — one of Notre Dame's student family housing facilities. Without ResNet, I am forced to do all of my research at school.

"Mask and Figures, Form and Style: The Christensen Family Collects African Art," a reinstallation of a portion of the Snite Museum of Art's African art collection, gives patrons a glimpse of how traditional African cultures understood their world; a world so different from, but at the same time relevant to, our own.
- To Moviegoers, From Hollywood Over winter break, the motion picture industry managed to spread some holiday cheer of its own (Scene Staff Report )
