Alcohol: the good, the bad & the drunk: Dry 20 years and counting

September 9, 2003 Matt Gabe 0

For the first semester of my sophomore year at the College, I was on disciplinary probation for underage drinking on campus and hosting a party in my room.

I was put on probation during the summer, and had no chance to appeal.

To most people reading this, it may not seem like a big deal, and in actuality, it really wasn’t. […]

In past years, student organizations at the College have had their yearbook photos taken standing against the brick exterior of the Brower Student Center.

As a result of the network problems the College has experienced in recent weeks, a miscommunication developed that caused some students to receive tickets for “lack of a valid decal” on Aug. 26.

The miscommunication between Parking Services and Campus Police occurred because of a system error, Ray Nesci, professional services specialist for Campus Police, said. […]

You and your significant other are home alone. Candles are lit. Soft music is playing in the background. You get into bed as things heat up. As you get ready to seal the deal, you reach over and turn out the light.

A loss for words: Reetika Vazirani, poet and professor, commits suicide at 40

September 9, 2003 Kristina Fiore 1

She walked into the classroom, her youthful eyes scanning the roomful of unfamiliar students’ faces. To professor and poet Reetika Vazirani, new places and different people were always familiar, a product of her frequent traveling and moving around. Despite her natural poise and grace, no one knew the pain that migration and other tragedies had inflicted on Vazirani’s life. […]

September 9, 2003 Zac Goldstein 0

“I live with 1,152 of my closest friends.”

These words may seem like the declaration of a worker ant, but they are actually the proud testimonial of a college student. The same student enjoys a college close to Philadelphia, New York City and the Poconos, has a chance to be hired by one of more than 400 companies and will more than likely pass by a mall if they travel 10 miles in any direction.
