Is summer a time to work or play?

Yes. It is finally summer. No more responsibility till school starts. Summer is the time you are not in school so why not have fun? But can you have fun and maintain a job or internship? Are you supposed to only have fun? Are you supposed to work all summer to earn money? Can work and […]

A glimpse into how Cabrini changed my life

Unlike most students who come to Cabrini, my story seems to be a little bit different. After I graduated high school in 2011, I decided to continue my education at Bloomsburg University. While I was there for three years, I studied psychology and had a great time making friends that I will have for a […]

Is it St. Patty’s Day or St. Party’s Day.

Whenever March comes around, you know it is time to break out the green clothes for St. Patrick’s Day. Whether it be going to the parade in Philadelphia (or elsewhere), hanging out at a local pub or just eating Irish potatoes all day, St. Patty’s is a big celebration of Irish heritage each year. But […]

#FreeKesha is the ultimate support for Kesha

A New York judge recently denied Kesha a court injunction that would have possibly allowed her to create new music outside of Sony Music and infamous producer Dr. Luke, whom she filed a lawsuit against.

Pacquiao ending boxing career on low note

Manny Pacquiao, in my opinion, is another victim of having his words taken the wrong way, just as people could see me as siding with Pacquiao in this article. First of all, the quote is taken out of a debate in the Philippines and everyone likes to bend the words of a debate to make […]

Idolizing celebrities: Good or bad?

If you are a celebrity, you have so much on your mind, whether it is showing up at so many events where there are large crowds, or being chased by so many people because they are a big fan of you. Celebrities are famous by doing anything that brings so much entertainment to a person […]

US Government fear mongering against Apple

The job of our government is to protect its people and put the policies that they want into place. In this process, people give up liberties so that the government has the power to watch out for us. Is it possible that they go too far sometimes though? A major debate is currently taking place worldwide […]

Should Syrians be allowed in the States?

America is a country founded on immigration. Just about all of us would not be here today if it were not for our ancestors immigrating here from elsewhere. Since this country was founded on immigration, does the United States have a responsibility to allow Syrian refugees into the country? To start, I am aware that […]

How not to date: a lesson from our parents

Remember the good old days when a young gentleman would properly court a young lady? He would be kind to her and show some interest. He would ask her out on a date—he may even ask her father’s permission to go on said date, if he is feeling extra respectful. He would show up at […]

Smoking: A curious mystery, but a harmful habit

People smoke for different reasons. In the book, “Looking For Alaska,” a character named Alaska proclaims that she smokes to die, whereas a character named Augustus in “The Fault In Our Stars” proclaims that he smokes to prove that he will not die. Common knowledge says that smoking is an unhealthy and detrimental habit, and […]

Sh*t, can I say that on TV?

What the bleep?! It seems like each year television gets more lenient with the amount profane language that is allowed to be spoken on various shows and much less bleeping is happening. Just this past month at the Golden Globe awards, many of the celebrities presenting awards used explicit language in their jokes including the […]

’90s TV series making an even ‘Fuller’ comeback

“Cut it out!” You’re not fooling anyone but yourself if you’re not willing to admit that you know that classic line is from the beloved television series “Full House.” Running from 1987 through 1995, “Full House” was a sitcom television series that revolved around the Tanner family. The series was about a widower, Danny Tanner, […]

Sex stereotypes from a different perspective

“The only thing men want is sex.” “All women think about is sex.” Everyone seems to have an opinion these days. Opinions to the side for a second, is there any actual factual evidence to back this up? Go ahead, hit up the quick Google search and what do you stumble upon? Most likely an […]

Is racism dead or alive?

Is racism dead or very much alive? This is a question that is asked by many people every single day. With everything that has happened around the world this past year, it is hard for me to say that racism is dead, because I do not think it is. Sandra Bland, Michael Brown and Trayvon […]

THE BIRDS

Let’s talk about the birds and the bees

We all remember that day too well. The most well-known, uncomfortable conversation to have with parents: ‘The Sex Talk.’ Parents sometimes start this dreadful conversation with the typical “birds and the bees story.” Every kid is aware of where this talk is going, but are parents just creating more of an awkward situation with their […]

Should pets be allowed on campus?

Many people on campus have some sort of pet in their dorm, whether it be a fish, hamster or even a guinea pig. Students know that pets are not allowed on campus unless it is a therapeutic animal. In that case it has to be registered with residence life. In the beginning of the year […]

Is sexting that big of a deal?

The first time I heard the word sexting was when I was about 10 years old. I thought it was a bad thing to do, but as I got older, the topic seemed to fade away. As the topic faded away, so did my opinion about it. Teenagers often send naked photos of themselves to […]
