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 […]

Unless you’re here for the view, go home

Long gone are the days the “Mile High City” refers to Denver’s altitude. In 2012, Amendment 64 passed in the state of Colorado which legalized adults 21 and older to purchase up to one ounce of marijuana from licensed dispensaries as well as authorized the growth of up to six plants in a state residence.

Military-grade weapons should be kept out of our homes

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 […]

Hate crimes call for reform in gun control laws

There are problems within every country, but a large problem the United States has been dealing with in recent years is gun control. In the United States anyone with a permit is permitted to own a gun; that includes law officials, hunters and also everyday citizens. With everyone able to possess such deadly weapons, it was […]


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 […]

The Road Less Traveled: Off-campus

Cabrini College is surrounded by many beautiful places and locations ranging from Wayne, Philadelphia, and Manayunk but it is very easy to get caught up in the college life and forget about the outside world. Life in college can be extremely hectic with the amount of assignments and obligations and often times students forget that […]


Summer break provides needed breather

  The end of the semester is quickly approaching. It is now time to start taking down room decorations and handing in final papers. With the stress of studying for final exams, one thing that does not seem to cross everyone’s mind is leaving roommates for the summer. Being so wrapped up with schoolwork and […]


FitBit Challenges: Go Hard Or Go Home

I think it is safe to say I am completely obsessed with FitBit challenges. I think they are the best thing that has ever happened. I’ve only had my FitBit since March but I am definitely addicted. Ever since I have had a FitBit, I challenge everyone in step competitions. From my family back home […]


Transition from Dorm Style to the Suite Life

To be honest, going from a dorm style living to the suite life is actually pretty exciting. It is exciting to know that I will be living with people that I have developed a great and comfortable relationship with. It was not hard to find people to live with on the west side of campus. […]

For those graduating late: your time will come

How young is too young?

16 is the age to get a license, and 21 is the age to drink, but what is the age to get married? Over the past 50 years marriages have changed greatly. It used to be that you would find a boy or girl, court them, date for a while, get married and then live […]


The military deserves our utmost respect

The other day, I was scrolling through Facebook as I do on a pretty regular basis, watching videos and reading posts, when I came across something that deeply disturbed me. A friend of mine, who often times will share things with which I strongly agree, had shared a video of a girl talking. His caption […]


Happiness always comes with a price

Money. The little paper object that brings happiness and joy to people, as well as stress and worry. Money. It is constantly on the mind, whether it is because we saw something in a store that we really want with a pricey price tag or because our cell phone bill came in the mail and […]

Which college classes are worth a good grade?

Students at all colleges and universities are required to take courses other than ones that relate to their major. One of the reasons behind this is to help the students become well-rounded. However, some students feel that the grades they get in classes outside their major do not matter as much. Students can feel this […]

‘Kiss Me While Everyone’s Watching’

If you and your significant other wish to grope one another and try to tear each other’s faces off, please do that in private. I’m talking about (PDA) or Personal Display of Affection. We’ve all seen couples in the mall, at the movies, bowling alley or a restaurant showing PDA. It does make me feel […]
