Flight 12 Improv Troupe

The student run improv troupe held it’s first performance of the semester. The troupe consists of returning theater majors and some first timers. The troupe performed an energetic show in front of a sold out crowd. Before the students hit the stage, I followed them that day to see what goes on behind the scenes.

Link Kabadyundi: 7-1 Basketball Player and Photographer

From the stands, when you see Link, you see a 7 foot giant who has quite the defensive presence in the front court.

But when I sat down with the Senior from Montreal, Canada, I learned about things the average UTA fan may not know. Like the fact that his first language is French, how his teammates that room with him rave about his cooking abilities, and one particular interest off the court that may not be as obvious as his tall size.

Kabayundi has a passion for photography and graphic design. And although he’s humble about his talents, he has quite the potential. He takes pictures of his teammates and edits the photos into promotional posters. He also has an Instagram page dedicated to his photography.
