If you ever walk across the Quad (basically, if you ever go to class), you may have noticed some recently sprayed graffiti on the sidewalk. No, SU doesn’t have a vandalism problem. First Year Players, the student-run musical theatre organization here, has decided to use the space as free advertising for their spring musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.

Tickets are four dollars with an SU ID and seven dollars as general admission at the box office. #W-I-N-N-I-N-G
