It’s no surprise that young people today have spent a sizable chunk of their lives planted in front of screens, meaning that whatever preconceived notions they may have about the “best four years of their life” are largely based on information from the movies. Cinema presents the American college experience as an epic beer-soaked free-for-all interrupted by the occasional class or two, that movie watchers can’t help but want for themselves, no matter how unrealistic it may seem.
In solidarity with the Take Back the Week series, an event titled “#NotSilentBecause: An Honest Discussion about Sexual Assault at SDSU” was held Tuesday, April 11 to engage students in conversations about sexual assault and increase awareness about the resources available on campus.

From its humble beginnings in the Bronx in the 1970s to the mainstream multibillion-dollar industry it is today, hip-hop has always been at the forefront of what is new and exciting in music. However, hip-hop is more than a musical genre and has a much wider reach than its American origin would suggest. It’s a movement characterized by multiple forms of expression including not just rapping but DJing, breakdancing and graffiti art that reaches people of all nationalities and backgrounds.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
