HoCo2k15 is still a necessary pastime

Homecoming is an event that has been going on in high schools and colleges for many years and is a tradition that should be kept but enhanced for the digital generation. If you have Snapchat, you have probably seen videos and pictures with the abbreviation “HoCo,” which is short for homecoming. During homecoming, students at Cabrini […]


How important are appearances?

    Everyone has their own sense of style; their style is also incorporated with their appearances. People of all ages have a different attire that may be suitable for them, however others may think differently. College students, for example, have a tendency to have a more lax appearance. Reason may be because classes are not […]


Breaking up with my best friend

No one warned me about being ignored for no reason. No one warned me about the whispers behind my back. No one warned me about the hurtful words that were exchanged over text. No one warned me about the subtweets on Twitter. No one warned me about the tears that never seemed to stop. No […]


Tanning beds not worth the risk

As the frost of winter starts to melt and the smell of spring winds its way into car windows, young girls across the nation take the opportunity to get “summer ready” by seeking out local tanning salons for the perfect color. What these women often look past is the dangerous outcome of stepping into a […]


Is it really good for you, Selena?

The new hit single by Selena Gomez titled “Good For You” has given the media something to talk about since its release. The media claims that the song is a way for Gomez to attract attention from her ex by being sexy and alluring. I agree with the media, I feel that the song is […]

Bullying still happens in college

If you have not been bullied yourself, you have either seen someone get bullied, know someone who has been bullied or been the bullier. When I was in elementary and middle school, there were plays, speeches and talks about bullying in school. Over the past few years the discussion seems to have died down in […]


Classes should be relevant to majors

Freshman year is a year of change for many students. Moving out of high school and into college is a huge challenge. However, most look at it as a new start. If college is a new start, why are we still required to take basic classes like we did in high school? If I am […]

Bill Cosby continues his negative reputation

A bad reputation leads to pulling honorary doctorates from Bill Cosby. Over the years, Bill Cosby, a strong advocate of education, has received over 100 honorary degrees from colleges in exchange for appearing to make graduation speeches. These honorary degrees also serve the purpose of awarding the usually highly-respected individual who is receiving them. Recently, […]

Country and rap: what’s the difference?

Country and rap are two of the most renowned genres of music in today’s world. Even though they both stand alone, they share similar roots and in some cases the same content. The two styles have collaborated with each other on various occasions throughout time and believe it or not, there is actually a sub-genre […]


Kayne West to run for president in 2020

Just as we thought it could not get worse for politics than to have Donald Trump running for president, news comes out that Kanye West intends to run in the 2020 presidential election. In an interview with Vanity Fair in late September, Kayne had a lot to talk about. The interview was mainly all about […]


Transitioning from the East side to the West side

When I think about the many places I have stayed and lived, my freshman and sophomore dorm rooms are not up there amongst my favorites. Communal bathrooms, smaller rooms and strict policies for signing guests in are only a few things that can make the east side of campus a bit less enjoyable. After a […]

Music shaming creates unnecessary conflicts

A popular topic trending throughout the years that we do not commonly notice 100 percent of the time is called “music shaming.” Music shaming is the discrimination between two people or groups because of difference in music genre preferences and opinions. The two most frequent music fans that I see voicing their opinions to each […]

Planned Parenthood statistics as of 2014

Plans for Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood has definitely made headlines lately and it has not been very positive. I do not really know how I feel about the whole Planned Parenthood situation. I am in the middle and I will tell you exactly why. First let us start off with this: if you are pro-abortion I cannot respect you. […]


Are engagement rings still necessary?

Everyone has their own perspectives on engagement rings. Engagement rings are a form of a promising, everlasting future with your partner. In some cases, people can consider engagement rings as a symbolic instrument. There are various reasons why people decide to actually spend thousands of dollars on a ring, too. Engagement rings are a momentous […]


No thanks, I’ll eat somewhere else

When I think about Cavs Corner, my mind immediately rejects the thought. I instead ask myself if it is time for meal exchange at Jazzman’s or the RAC. I would even hope my friends would ask if I wanted to go off campus and visit Chipotle or Taco Bell or purchase a week’s worth of […]


‘Positive’ discrimination is not so positive after all

Affirmative action, also sometimes referred to as positive discrimination, is the act of seeking out a minority group that would typically be discriminated against in other cultures or situations in order to try to diversify the candidates for hire. It is a policy that has been around since the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s […]

How social media affects lives

Social media has been all over the world for years now. It has hundreds of millions of users and is something that most people use every day. However, in some cases, social media can also lead to trouble. With social media being so prevelant, people can become addicted, whether it is to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram […]


Should Catholic colleges become more secular

I was raised Roman Catholic all my life, but I do not consider myself a religious person. During my college search, I did not seek out Catholic colleges, but rather ones that were small and had amazing communication departments. I went to public school. In my experience, when people my age asked me where I […]


Does Cabrini offer enough on-campus activities?

As a full-time commuter student with a part-time job, I do not go to many on-campus activities provided by Cabrini. However, when I was living on campus freshman year, I went to a lot of activities on Cabrini’s campus. The activities I went to freshman year were dances, bingo, quizzo and homecoming activities. This year, […]
