As the semester finds itself four weeks away from its glorious close – much to the anxiety of students and faculty – undergraduates and graduate students alike are beginning to lay out their holiday plans.

In its fourth semester running, “Let There Be Rock” is a WIIT radio show run by fourth year computer engineering student Javi Sorribes each Thursday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The show was created in February 2016 in an unusual way: Sorribes explained that the reason he got started began when one of his friends, upon noticing that there was no rock-themed show on WIIT, filled out the application form on the website for a rock show, incorrectly assuming that the form requested existing WIIT members to create the show.

            World War I (WWI) was a truly global war, drawing combatants from across the world together in a dire struggle for power that would upset the balance of the world for years to come, with effects still being felt in modern geopolitics. Unfortunately, many treatments of WWI (from movies to classroom education) focus primarily on the Western European front, mainly emphasizing the static and many-times pyrrhic nature of trench warfare.
