Angels in the Basement

Angels in the Basement

The statues in the basement finally have a name, or at least a true story. Having a background in the University Theater here on campus, I have found myself on many occasions meandering around Talley Student Centre, through Stewart Theatre, and down into the dark, horror-film-esque basement of this building.  I can recall the first … Continue reading
