Event Spotlight: Tacky Prom

Providence College understands thrifting. With all of our theme nights and whatnot, who doesn’t need a little bit of Savers every once in a while? Fortunately, for all of you frugal fashionistas out there—you are in luck, TWOFOLD! First and foremost, the Board of Programmers will be shuttling eager individuals to and from Savers from 5:00-10:00 p.m. tonight. Speaking from the perspective of a discount retail guru, I am personally excited about this expedition and more excited about its purpose. Yes, my friends, that’s right, the intent of the shuttling is so eager, clashing, and atrociously gaudy Providence College students can purchase fabulously, dare I say it, tacky clothing for PC’s first annual Tacky Prom.

Spending Cuts Triggered By Super Committee Failure

After a major default earlier this year, Congress was able to agree to a rise in the debt ceiling in August 2011 and begin a process of major government spending reduction in attempts to handle the country’s major deficit crisis. While the agreement eliminated the threat of a government default, it created an extremely short timetable for Congress to debate another huge deficit-reduction plan. The plan would require a committee of lawmakers (known in political and media circles as the “super committee”) to come up with an additional $1.5 trillion more in deficit cuts or tax reforms before Thanksgiving. If the committee failed, the congressional agreement would trigger automatic cuts of $1.2 trillion across the board in both military and domestic funding.
