Just as students must (generally) commit to living within college rules, to attend class and to perform within specified academic boundaries, so too must colleges commit to their students.
With a commitment to social justice and all those who carry that mantle, Cabrini College honored the Montgomery County District Attorney with an award and guest speaking opportunity for their exemplary work in the field of justice and the community.
You want to know what a “bounty” is? Any hard-hitting defensive player’s contract. Watch old footage of Brian Dawkins, tell me his salary wasn’t a bounty on any offensive player in range.
Unfortunately, rather than serving as an appropriately exciting intermission, this year’s All-Star Weekend was a fitting microcosm, a lowlight in this shortened, marathon of a season.
As every news outlet is constantly attesting, the Republican presidential primary is heating up.
As many who enjoy the college experience know, money is inextricably tied to the institution of higher learning. From tuition, to grants, to meal plans and to fund-raisers, no student can escape the direct and indirect call of campus capitalism.
Last week, Wikipedia and other popular websites protested the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect IP Act by blacking out their logos or redacting content on their websites. Sites like these, and many more, are resisting what would amount to an unprecedented level of unchecked internet oversight by the government.
As a player, it’s back to work; as a fan, it’s finally time to watch some basketball.
Tragedy and scandal struck Penn State University last week amid allegations and a federal investigation of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was indicted on 40 counts of sexual abuse of young boys between 1994 and 2009 with at least 10 potential victims coming forward.
Grow or fail; true of both life and music. For people, we stagnate, stick in spots and stop moving forward. For bands, they lose interest, from fans, from themselves, with each stationary step.
Last week I finally visited Occupy Philadelphia, and it did not disappoint. Having long derided the “Occupy” movement from the sidelines, I was intrigued by the prospect of getting some time on the ground with disillusioned iconoclasts. It’s no secret that since inception I have not been a fan of this ragtag band of economic […]
Cabrini College announced on Thursday, Nov. 10 that there will be a 12.5% reduction in tuition and fees, effective fall 2012 through May 2015.
What are athletes worth? With the NBA currently embroiled in a bitter lockout revolving around player salaries and the NFL just coming off a similar players’ strike, I often hear people questioning the small fortunes professional athletes earn. “Is he really worth $80 million? All he does is put a ball through a hoop…” Should […]
Building upon an unfunded business plan hatched in last year’s ECG 200: People, Planet and Profit class, a group of students formed Cabrini’s first Students in Free Enterprise club in order to create a sustainable future for the orphans and vulnerable children in Swaziland.
To all you girls really stressing over a last minute Halloween costume, stop. We all know what the easy and oft-taken solution to your costume dilemma is. There is no shame (necessarily) in the “easy” way out anymore. I just feel that someone had to call it out. So go ahead, stop worrying, don’t run […]
Occupy Wall Street protests fight for economic equality A group of activists stood up against greed, corporate influence and social inequality during late September. A large number of police officers were sent to the streets near Zuccotti Park, at Broadway and Liberty Street, where protestors had been camping during their protest. The “leaderless resistance movement” […]
The Cabrini College Master Plan will be enacted between 2011 and 2025 and will bring sweeping changes to the structure and usage of the campus.
Sportsmanship is dead, and winning killed it. The centuries of old western traditions of integrity and fair play in competition has finally been replaced by the impetus to win at all costs, at any cost. Sure, we’ve been hearing grumblings of this forever it seems, generally from an older generation blaring that their sports were […]
“Shakedown,” “extortive” and “conflict of interest” are not things anyone wants to hear in association with their local police department, much less their entire state’s penal code. Well Garden State natives, I have some bad news for you. Over the summer I experienced all three pejoratives in your fine state at the hands of Jersey’s […]
The Cabrini College community has lost one of its own. Corey Salazar, library associate at Holy Spirit Library and 2002 graduate, died on Aug. 5th after a two month battle with brain cancer.
While some may begrudge them their conceits, “Watch the Throne” brings what the very best in rap have to offer, both lyrically and musically, and does it just a little bit bigger.
As the country, and our community, continues to collectively sort their thoughts and feelings post-Bin Laden, many will simply choose to remember not this death and its circumstances, but the people who are most affected by it.
The gang’s all back, and still living life “one quarter mile at a time.” I’m talking of course about Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and the rest of the car-stealing, fast driving anti-heroes that star in the newly released (April 29th) Fast Five movie now playing in regular theaters and Imax. For those who are fans […]
Is common courtesy really too much to ask? Apparently, depending on your line of work, it is. I realize we are not living in the most genteel of times, but this ridiculous. I, like many college kids, make ends meet by working at a restaurant. I knew when joining the ranks of food service that […]
College sports are inferior to professional sports. I’m sorry, I couldn’t keep pretending anymore. And while I can hear the angry mob forming already, this fact cannot be escaped. Make no mistake, this is not merely a statement of personal preference. For numerous reasons it’s now obvious that both as an entertainment and as a […]
