The media are obsessed with missing and/or murdered wives. Every year there seems to be some sort of scandal of a bored housewife killing her child or a disloyal husband killing his loyal pregnant wife, therefore technically killing two people.

In high-profile female murder cases, the news media tend to bring the most focus on the victim’s story. The film “Gone Girl”, however, focuses on the side of the disloyal husband. Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) is a struggling writer who is having an affair with one of his students. His wife is Amy Dunne (Rosamond Pike), who is rich because she is the inspiration of her parent’s children’s book franchise based on a her childhood.

It’s not uncommon for average college students to “trim the fat” off their budgets as soon as a new school semester begins.

Little things like a night out or regularly getting a good haircut or manicure starts to fall to the wayside, as other things like textbooks and parking passes start to take their place.

The City College Transfer Center hosted its 19th annual Transfer Day Sept. 22 on the quad with over 60 universities in attendance. Students were able to browse materials and meet with representatives from various institutions across the country.

Victoria Sanderson said she was encouraged by a counselor to window-shop the different schools while she was sitting in the Student Center during her lunch break.

“I really was surprised to find a school with exactly what I was interested in,” said Sanderson, who is considering a future career in publishing. “I have been before, and they usually don’t have the major I am interested in.”

From California universities to New York art and film schools, the annual event offered students a chance to explore educational opportunities they may not have otherwise considered, according to the Transfer Center.

For more information regarding transferring and educational planning, visit the Transfer Center’s website at www.scc.losrios.edu/transfercenter or call at (916) 558-2181.
