Letter to the Editor: Thoughts on Message Center Remembrances

By Martha Vargas Bogliani | Aug. 29, 2014

I am very upset over the way the RIT administration handled notifying the death of a friend of mine. His name was Dominic Clemente-Gould and he was a very special person in the lives of many.

On Thursday, August 20, Dom passed away quietly and alone. He did not make headlines in the papers nor was he mourned in a Robin Williams-styled social media grieving wave. He has a cluster of close friends, family members and acquaintances that have been deeply affected by his passing...

By Taylor Derrisaw | May. 14, 2014

The supposedly endless staircase that loops itself in the Gannett building has gained widespread media attention as millions of viewers were unable to explain the seamless editing done by the two students.

Lacanilao and Byrne have gone to great lengths to make the story believable, even making a fake Facebook account for the architect, Rafael Nelson Aboganda, who supposedly made the stairwell in the 1960’s...
