Free the nipple?

Free the Nipple. The last word of that sentence probably made you uncomfortable. Nipple. And, you probably associated ‘nipple’ with the female body, not the male body, as if it is exclusive to a woman’s physique. But, that is the problem in today’s world. The female body is censored and shunned because, as far as […]

Pumpkin spice not so nice

There does not seem to be anything that does not come in pumpkin flavor nowadays. It used to be that pumpkins were around pretty much for just the month of October. Now, it is the middle of September, yet it seems like every place I go is ready for Halloween. Considering Halloween isn’t until the […]

The roommate you didn’t know about

Is that crumb on your floor magically moving? Are you waking up in the morning with bites on your arms and legs? Perhaps more than just you and your roommates are living in your room.

I looked into the future of VR, and I loved what I saw

I looked into the future of VR, and I loved what I saw

Virtual reality has intrigued humans for hundreds of years. From early attempts in the form of panoramic paintings to the lesser known Nintendo Virtual Boy, we have covered quite some distance. So far, in fact, that now it seems our most outlandish dreams are coming to reality, virtual reality to be exact. As of 2016, […]

Some of the soccer team move in helpers. Anyone can join the move in helpers through the SEAL office

A little recognition for Cabrini’s own move in helpers

Packing and organizing all of your belongings and moving them into a dorm room is, without a doubt, one of the most stressful things. Compacting various items, from a mini fridge down to paperclips, into a car and heading off to your new home is exciting and equally exhausting. Getting everything into the car is only […]

Why chucks will never go out of style

The Converse All Star Chuck Taylor has been around for quite some time, since 1917 to be exact. I find it so amazing that the shoe brand has stayed in business for almost a century and managed to still be a popular sneaker nowadays. Other shoe brands like Jordan, Adidas and Vans have gained popularity […]

In the recent attacks in Orlando, a private security officer, Omer Mateen, pledged his allegiance to ISIS and proceeded to murder 49 people and injure 53 more at the Pulse Night Club. He wielded a legally purchased assault-style rifle and pistol. The AR-15 is an American-made, military-grade automatic rifle. It was created in the 1950s […]

To vote or not to vote?

Everyone has a voice that they want to be heard. Whether is it about who they believe should be voted off the Bachelorette or who they are voting for in the next election, opinions are something that everyone has and loves to share. This November, there will be a Presidential election and since every vote […]

Is there a ‘right’ way to watch a concert?

Since the early 1950s, people of all ages with similar music tastes have been congregating in venues big and small and places near and far for one common purpose: concerts. While listening to one’s favorite artists through record, CD, the radio and so on is pleasing and convenient, nothing quite compares to seeing a band […]

The 2016 Tony Awards: Hamilton, and everything else

My favorite time of year was finally here. I had invited my friends and done my research all in preparation for the 70th annual Tony Awards on CBS. This award show airs at the beginning of every summer and honors Broadway’s newest shows and their companies. My annual Tonys excitement was somewhat distracted this year […]
