Student-actors met Thursday evening, Jan. 30 in the Performing Arts Center to do a dress rehearsal of "The Imaginary Invalid," which opens tonight at the DUG Theater in the PAC. The run-through gave the actors, staff and faculty staff an opportunity to run through the entire play, which is a comedy written by Molière during the 17th century and provides commentary on the pseudo-science that ran rampant in the medical industry during that time.

Sunday marked the 18th annual Ridin’ Low in the 3-6-0 low-rider show. Gleaming paint, triple-dipped chrome, and custom wire rims were just a few aspects of the show. Eighteen years ago students as part of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicanx de Aztlan (M.E.Ch.A.) at WWU envisioned a community event that celebrated Chicanx culture through music, dance performances, community activism, hop contests, and food.
