In August, Ross Miller, a University of Massachusetts graduate student and Ph.D. candidate, received the Young Scientist Pre-Doctoral Award from the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB). The award was presented to Miller at the 34th Annual ASB Meeting in Providence, R.I.
Every Friday night, I.W.A., or Improv With Attitude, puts on performances for the student body. The group performs at 8 p.m. for about two hours. The performance is heavily based on improv-comedy, acting within certain guidelines or incorporating suggestions from the crowd into it. The cast reminds the audience before each show that theirs is not a “family-friendly” performance.
