People are under the impression that obesity is a disease. In my opinion, obesity is a negative symptom triggered by another illness, such as depression, emotional instability or the inability to receive fulfillment of any sort. Jermaine Robinson has put his past behind him, with hopes to start new chapter of his life. Robinson, […]
Opinions from editors, staff writers and members of the college community.
I have always loved writing. In elementary school, I would fill up manila and burgundy colored journals with my swirling handwriting. I used to wear a silver, clinking charm bracelet with a sparkly journal embossed with a butterfly and a pencil. I kept journals in crates, filled with stories scribbled in bright pink and purple […]
College is the time of our lives, not the time to settle down.
Between outfit choice, etiquette, work and partying, double standards exist everywhere. We have all seen them in our daily lives. Double standards can be found in all forms. From women to men, our culture is used to dealing with gender role stereotypes. When men post workout pictures, or any “selfie” for that matter, it is […]
In today’s generation, women are often looked down upon for having sexual relations with men. However, men are praised for it. Why is this? As unfair as it is, men will never be called sluts, whores, skanks or any of the derogatory terms used to describe women. When a man has sexual relations with a […]
I hope this does not seem too harsh, but I hate the Kardashians. In my personal opinion I think that they have a negative effect on our society, plus they are just super annoying. Kim dying her hair should not be considered news, and who cares about what nightclub Scott went to. To me it […]
Video produced by: Jill Nawoyski, AJ Shopa and Drew Vernon I, like many millennials, am a product of failed relationships, and I am stronger because of it. When I was two, my parents got a divorce. This is something that today I am so thankful for because without the divorce, I would not have been […]
As millennials, we have made some of the best and worst fashion decisions.
Our generation is pathetic when it comes to romance and dating. My 28-year-old brother would have to call his high school girlfriend’s home phone in order to talk to her. That was then. Now, we go on social media and hide from reality. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and other social media sites are the reason […]
The millennial generation has a bad reputation. We are the generation glued to the bright screens of our smartphones, fervently refreshing our twitter feeds and posting artfully retouched pictures on Instagram. We do not have any manners. We are crazy, invincible, careless and reckless. Millennials are lazy and have no motivation. We do not have […]
In college, students hear the typical advice for career search: build your resume, take internships and network with people in your field of interest. But one piece of advice is becoming more common than ever: manage what you say online because once it is out there, it is out there for good. That is what […]
Over the last month, we have seen Jay-Z’s new mastermind idea. Jay-Z’s new project has been in the works for some years now. His idea is to have an app made for music to play anywhere you go with good quality and sound. The purpose for Jay-Z launching this newly acquired music service, called Tidal, […]
Cabrini’s Greek life is more like a club than an actual fraternity. I mean no disrespect to the individuals who decided to join the fraternity either. In my eyes, it is not really considered a fraternity if there is only one fraternity at a school with roughly 1,500 undergraduates. Again, nothing is wrong with joining the […]
Students are dreaming of a blissful summer, but many feel the pressure to find a great internship or job. Yet many internships do not pay and students need spending money or money for bills. Should students choose between them? It is a hard decision for many to choose. Choosing between a summer internship and a […]
Before you read any further, you should know this is not about me sparking up in my car between classes. Sorry college hipsters, but my schedule, and budget, do not allow for that. However, what did happen in my life sparked quite the collegiate change. Babysitter, bartender, captain, dancer, news anchor, staff writer, on-air DJ and […]
Pep rallies, step teams and Greek life. A campus that is way too big you wil not even see the same person twice. Have you ever watched movies like “Stomp the Yard” and “21 and Over” wishing that the college that you attend will be like that? “I thought I was going to have fun […]
Cabrini is in a great location as a college, but you might not enjoy it as much until your sophomore year. Most freshmen usually live on campus in Xavier, Woodcrest and even some live in East because the school picks for you. Sophomore year, you get to pick where you live. You have all of […]
Haha, oh goodness. A story on my experience at Cabrini? All jokes aside though, I could not have asked for a better experience so far at Cabrini. Coming into this school, I was worried about two things: Was this the school too small and would I fit in? Well, those two things were answered halfway through […]
College campuses in the United States have come under serious scrutiny after recent racial chants and cruel behaviors. The University of Oklahoma and Penn State have been featured in the news lately over such issues. Duke University is the latest school involved with a race scandal. An undergraduate student admitted to hanging a noose in […]
“The Bachelorette” is adding a new twist that has fans everywhere talking.
When I was little, I did not know much about my parents lives before me. Obviously, in my child-aged brain, they were married before they had me but that is all I really knew. As I grew up, I learned a little more about where my parents were born, where they grew up and what […]
Imagine shaking as hunger cuts you deep down to your core because you skipped breakfast and lunch. Face pressed against the toilet hoping that you will soon have a body like the girls in the magazines. We have been there. I get it. We live in a society where achieving a look of skin and […]
Music is an annoyance for some and a way of enjoying life for others, but the experience of a live concert that connects fans and artists can be extremely magical. It is important to note that there are different kinds of concerts. For example the rules and ethics of a classical concert requires silence and quiet […]
Kelly Clarkson is one of America’s sweethearts; a powerhouse vocalist, singer, songwriter and the first winner to grace the American Idol stage. The 32-year-old singer has been in the spotlight ever since she tearfully sang “A Moment Like This” as she accepted her “Idol” win as a 20-year old. Fast forward12 years and the singer […]
Spanish culture is a very popular culture and talked about considerably these days. At Cabrini College there was not a lot of diversity on campus. Now, Cabrini College is trying to expand their diversity and experience a different environment on campus. The majority of the Spanish people at Cabrini are from the Dominican Republic. They get offended […]
Words to describe people with disabilities are amazing, smart, kind and misunderstood. In our society, students with disabilities are looked upon as unequal and not intelligent because they seem slower than other people. Many times students with disabilities get teased and sometimes even bullied in school because they are seen as less capable than their […]
