Every day should be Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is that one day set aside for showing someone how much you love them. But should that not be every day? Why does a holiday have to dictate when you buy your girl flowers and take her out to a fancy dinner? Valentine’s Day should be every day! If you are lucky enough […]


Playing the lottery: safe or sorry?

I grew up watching my dad play the lottery, and turning to the ABC station for the powerball drawing and always losing. So when I finally turned 18, I was very eager to buy my first scratch off just because I could. I went to a random corner store by a friend’s house and picked […]


Should minimum wage be raised?

Minimum wage has been an on going debate for a while now. Should we raise it? Should we lower it? There has been a lot of buzz about it and everyone has different opinions on what they think the government should do. In Pennsylvania as of right now the hourly rate for minimum wage is […]


The Pederson era has begun

The Chip Kelly era has finally ended here in Philadelphia, but the question is can the new guy come in and clean up Chip’s mess? Doug Pederson, former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, is ready to step up and take on his first role as a head coach. He could not be coming to a […]


We are never ever ever getting back together… SIKE!

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are not just back together, they are officially engaged for the second time. I am not sure whether or not to be skeptical about these two being reconciled, but I feel like putting the engagement back on was not the right thing to do. Couples that break up once have […]

’Tis the season to cope with winter blues

As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, it is normal to feel a bit bluer. Do not feel alone. The bed becomes impossible to get out of, the TV remote is irremovable from the hand and eating while doing nothing is definitely a better option than working out. The clinical diagnosis and […]


Just another typical celebrity Twitter fight

Recently, rapper Nicki Minaj and Farrah Abraham, mother from MTV’s show, “Teen Mom,” were involved in a Twitter feud that sparked after Abraham’s debut of her new show. Minaj harshly commented on Abraham’s poor treatment of her mother, and Abraham fired back stating that Minaj’s music videos were overly sexual and inappropriate. When these feuds […]


To transfer or not to transfer: An ode to indecisiveness

It does not seem all that long ago that we were seniors in high school trying to decide what we wanted to do with ourselves for the next four years. Amongst all the appli- cations, ACT and SAT testing and campus tours, we all somehow ended up at the same place: Cabrini College. Whether you […]


The Golden Globes: the night of movies and stars

The 73rd Golden Globes was held on Sunday, Jan. 10. The Golden Globes are about honoring the best in film and American television. During this night, many actors and actresses gather around to celebrate those who have won or were even nominated. The categories are divided into two sections: comedy and musicals and drama. “The […]

Your Future

Quick decisions become monumental changes

Turning Left instead of right can change the course of everything. Five years ago I was a junior in high school. I was that student who could hide in the back, get away with doing my homework mostly in class, and get A’s by barely lifting a finger. That does not mean that I was happy […]


Being productive in college

College is the time to try new things and figure out what your future is going to be like. College is expensive. So why not get the most out of it? Having a successful college career depends on how much you want out of it. The more friends you make, the better. Networking with professors […]


Is Caitlyn Jenner rightfully Woman of the Year?

Caitlyn Jenner received Glamour’s Woman of the Year award and this has caused a controversy among many. Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Olympic medal winner Bruce Jenner, had a sex change to become a woman. I think this was an interesting decision to chose her to win this award. However, her winning the award is […]


Teachers care or unfair?

The complaint that you hear from almost every student each semester is the workload they have. They complain about how teachers make it seem like they have nothing else to do besides the work for that class. I am going to take the side of the students on this one, but I can see the […]

No more!!Please!!!!

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas

Most people who know me know that I love music and love to sing. You can find me listening to pretty much any genre of music and loving it. With that in mind, there is one style of music that really gets under my skin. Contrary to popular opinion, I hate Christmas music. Do not […]


Changing my mind and my major

On move-in day of my freshman year, I stood in the bookstore with my mom purchasing all of my books for my elementary education courses. I was certain I would need them throughout my four years here at Cabrini and most likely someday in my own elementary school classroom. My mom asked me if maybe we […]


Winter Break Starting Later Than Usual

Cabrini College is doing something different this year and that is starting winter break on Dec. 19, less than a week before Christmas. I feel this is because the school year started a little later than usual. For some students, it is not a big problem that winter break is starting later than usual. “I don’t see […]


Does Christmas come too early?

As an avid fan of the Christmas holiday, it seems to me that it is getting closer with each year. It seems as if the day after Halloween you will turn on the radio and hear Christmas songs or walk into the mall and see Santa posted all over and Christmas trees already set up. […]


Is it considered a break if I have school work?

Once the month of October is over, the only thing that is on a student’s mind is Thanksgiving break. But do we even consider Thanksgiving break a break anymore? Most students would say that it is not a break only for the simple fact that most professors assign work during this short amount of relaxation […]


Starbucks cup causes controversy

*Sniff Sniff* Smell that? Holiday season is approaching quickly! Some have started already, but it is about to be time to break out the tree as well as the rest of the holiday decorations you have. Something else that has become a norm for this part of the year is to visit a local Starbucks. […]


A Balancing Act: Handling grades and stress

There is no doubt that it is important to do well in your classes and get good grades, but is it worth sacrificing your mental health for? Is it really worth it staying up all night to finish that essay or cram for that test if you are not going to be able to function […]


Kimye at it again: making marriage rules

There are many celebrities who love the work that they do and how famous they are, whether it is acting in a movie or performing on stage to large crowds of people. One celebrity who has been famous for 10 plus years now is Kanye West, with millions of albums sold and millions of followers […]
