Emma Watson, who we all grew up admiring as the precocious Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” movies, could be dating a Harry in real life. To be exact, Prince Harry of Wales, the bad-boy with ginger hair that is fourth in line to be King of England. This is what dreams are made of. […]
Did you know there used to bring an event called the “Spring Fling” here at Cabrini? It all changed because of incident.
Most members of any sorority would say it is about “being part of a sisterhood” which is the most cliched response of all time. This could be true when seen on the surface but as most of us know there is way more substance than what is on the surface. Nowadays society has portrayed sororities […]
As the winter is coming to an end, room pick is getting closer and closer.

With no holidays in the spring semester besides Easter, we all bank on spring break. Spring Break is a week off of school, to go anywhere you want or just head back home to see friends and family. Some people define spring break as a week where all the dumb kids go to Cancun and […]
Ahh, SAT’s. The anxiety, the sweat, the tears—we all remember. But uh-oh, what’s this? The SAT’s and ACT’s will be optional for students applying to attend Cabrini?

College is a once-in-a lifetime experience. During this time meeting friends and making memories that last forever is always such a blissful thing. But there comes a time when you stumble upon someone who takes your heart and never lets go. Dating in college can be rough. Meeting someone for the first time who lives […]
It doesn’t matter where injustices are happening, it matters that they are happening at all. That’s why we dedicated an entire issue to discuss human trafficking and the thousands of voiceless women and men that are trafficked each day. Why should students care? Why does it matter that people across the world or country are […]
College is a time for experimenting. Students come in as a marketing major and leave with a criminology degree. First year students have never had alcohol before and by the time they leave, their favorite hour is happy. Friend circles rotate and students really find themselves while at school. But, the question is, is college […]
James Barbour, accused of having criminal sexual contact with a 15-year old girl, is now donning the infamous “Phantom of the Opera” mask. Does he deserve to portray this iconic role?
Sia charmed with another hit, “Elastic Heart,” released this year. As the song floated through my mind, blaring on high from my Pandora app, I pictured Sia or some actress singing, looking into the camera with big, blue-crying eyes with rain slowly falling down a grey backdrop.

College is supposed to be the time of our lives, where we make lasting memories and focus on our futures while living stress free. But that isn’t the case and the main reason is money. A college kid trying to get their hands on some cash is equivalent to Charlie Brown trying to kick that […]
College tuition in the United States is expensive. I don’t think anybody can argue that fact. The point is should it be so expensive? Should it even cost anything at all? President Obama has made a proposal to make the first two years of community college free, but it comes with guidelines that students must […]
ABC’s ‘The Bachelor’ shows a blatant disregard for the respect of women and men alike.
Cameras are flashing, reflecting off a gorgeous custom- made scarlet hued gown. The actress is dripping in Harry Winston diamonds and flashing a white smile for all of the photographers, hoping her Louboutin shoes will help her end up on the Best Dressed List and not a victim of the Fashion police show. This is […]

Everyone has a New Year’s resolution and it usually consists of eating better and exercising more frequently. I’m here to tell you that that is bullshit. Sorry guys, but it’s true.

When I think of winter, I think of the bone-chilling temperatures that come along with it.

Are the police officers just doing their jobs, or are their actions considered police brutality? There have been many situations that have happened that shocked the nation, due to police brutality.

Imagine a room full of newspaper cartoonists shot down for their artwork. Imagine a foreign country threatening a movie from being produced in the United States.
Every year at the beginning of January, college students get pesky emails reminding everyone to fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). But what if all schools adopted tuition freezes so that no student had to worry about whether or not the tuition will be raised for their next four years? Would […]
