Although not “technically” independent, Cincinnati-based WALK THE MOON is breaking the indie scene with their energetic sound, bright guitar riffs, and accessible style.
Many people are already familiar with their lead single “Anna Sun,” and a few people might know their song “Tightrope,” but their latest album, Walk the Moon, is full of colorful singles beyond just the ones that get the radio play.

But just because you had to pack away the tree and lights doesn’t mean that those warm, cozy nights in front of the T.V. are over.

The weather outside may be frightful, but the activities are so delightful.
The snowy season allows students to enjoy the many skiing slopes and the ice rinks that flourish under the blizzards.
Although it could be absolutely bitter outside, a cup of warm coffee or steaming hot chocolate are great companions to brave the storm.
