Killing the environment is killing us

Climate change; we hear about it more and more in the news, discussions and politics, but do we really know what it is? Climate change is the issue that a vast majority of Americans say needs strong government action but that most Republican lawmakers and oil and coal companies deny. It is also the issue […]

First Paris then Brussels: What will happen next?

Months ago, we witnessed an attack in Paris. We shared our #PrayersForParis and watched the political candidates share their views on the terrorists who were responsible. This past week, we witnessed an attack in Brussels and ISIS claimed responsibility. How was it handled? What were the comments? What are the political candidates proposing for the […]


What are the primaries and how should we vote?

Being away at college leaves students with many priorities and daily tasks that need to be done. Sometimes, it is easy to forget about what is going on in the world, due to the business of their every day lives. The race for the 2016 election is in full swing, and every few days the […]

How often we forget

We have all been there… Sitting at the kitchen table as a child hearing our parents shout, “finish your dinner. There’s starving kids out in the world!” We would sit in our chairs moving our food around with our forks, trying to rebel because we did not get our first choice of pizza and french […]

Zika virus continues to threaten fragile countries

Last August, a seaside city in Brazil noticed mutations in babies at a maternity ward.

How do we feel about the 2016 election?

  We are living in a world where the government influences  how we live. There are rules and regulations that are in place for our safety and we put our trust in the hands of a single individual to do what is right for our country. In addition, our three branches of government are designed […]

Is the classroom educating heads or hearts?

Some argue that education is not just learning inside the walls of the classroom, but taking what they know into other areas and educating something more — their hearts. In 1957, Cabrini College was founded by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Although the Sisters did found a college, what they started […]


Why a new year should still mean the same you

Some say that with a new year comes a chance to reinvent yourself and although that sounds extremely exciting and promising, it is just not true. Why do we have to wait a whole year to decide to work out? Why do we have to use the calendar changing as an excuse to be the […]


Why feeling sorry is not helping

The problems of the world are far larger than we choose to believe. As college students, it is very easy to sit back and say that we feel sorry for countries going through turmoil and children fleeing for their lives, because we are not the ones going through it. We sit on our phones, read […]

A call to action: climate change

One of the biggest meetings of world leaders is currently being held in France. For some, a meeting is simply a meeting, but that is not the truth for this event. This week-long conference serves as a huge chance for 40,000 individuals to come together to work towards one common goal to save the future […]


Editorial: Are we leaving with just a degree?

We wake up. We go to class. We take notes. We take exams. We hope to pass. We continue this for four full years with the common dream of being handed a diploma in May of our senior year. Do students leave college with just a degree or something more? According to Pew Research, 9 […]

Have faith

Faith comes in many different forms. Some pray every single morning, day and night. Some believe that their higher power is guiding them through a path that will lead them to bigger and better things. Others think that the stars may have not been aligned correctly during their bad day at the office or during […]


Day of the girl gives hope to adolescents worldwide

All around the world, girls are too often enslaved, treated as second-class, deprived of schooling and forced into marriages against their will. Even in the United States, girls are viewed as second class in music, on TV and in films. On Sunday, Oct. 11, the female gender called the day their own to fight for […]

Be a warrior

For some, getting out of bed is the hardest part of their day. Sometimes, those who smile the brightest are the ones that cry themselves to sleep every night. Sometimes, those who have a full circle of friends are the ones who feel the most alone. Sept. 10 was National Suicide Awareness Day, and for many of us on the […]


Sept. 11, 2001 – Never Forgotten

On Sept. 11, 2001, New York City was no longer just a city. It was no longer just a place where families could go to see shows. It was no longer a place to simply purchase a hot dog on the street and watch thousands of people run by. Waking up, Sept. 11, 2001 was just […]

To the class of 2019:

Wow. Welcome to your first year of college. You made it through the stress of the SATs, AP courses and numerous college visits. You are walking into four years full of firsts, lasts, lectures, parties and all-nighters. Being a college student isn’t always easy and we know that being away from home is hard. We’ve […]

Perfection: what is it and do we really want it?

Why do we have to have perfect grades in order to be smart? Why do we have to have the perfect relationship in order to be in love? Why do we have to be making large amounts of money just to be happy? For some, the constant thought of perfection is a light switch in […]
