Lessons learned from college experience

A conscientious student has undoubtedly heard it a million times: Unemployment and student loan debt are rising for undergraduates. The paranoia invoked by this reality is often exacerbated by another often repeated cliché: Do what you love and don’t worry about money!

Sharing love at fall concert

Despite almost an hour-long interlude of electronic music, there was a tangible change in the energy of the crowd as Grouplove came onstage to Skrillex and ASAP Rocky’s “Wild for the Night” at the Fall Concert in Kendall Hall on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Don’t fear a minimum wage hike in New Jersey

If the governor of a state calls a proposed constitutional amendment “stupid” and “truly ridiculous,” it could be expected that his constituency would reflect that sentiment.

To insure or not to insure America’s unemployed

The old adage goes, give a man a fish and he will eat for the day, but teach a man how to fish and he’ll eat forever. But what if a man is getting fish for free every day? Then what is his motivation to learn how to fish and provide for himself?

VFW surprisingly great place to grab dinner

On Thursdays and Fridays cars overflow from its parking lot into the street, and a savory aroma wafts over the nearby Green Lane Fields. Despite its large crowds and close proximity to campus — it’s actually the closest eatery to the College — it took me until my senior year to explore the soulful flavors of the Ewing Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).

Human struggle shouldn’t result in tragedy

Last April, a young woman named Paige Aiello ended her life at the close of the semester. To many who knew her, she was driven, deeply caring and intelligent, and a she was a leader in every facet of her life.

In-room conflict resolution

Bad food, hard classes and finding new friends are causes of anxiety for incoming college freshmen, but, when I was a fresh-faced high school graduate, I had a disproportionate fear of getting a roommate that snores.

College combats waste, recycling for a change

It is a multi-billion dollar global industry, saves trillions of tons of resources annually, has an iconic logo and its virtues are sung aloud at elementary schools across the country every Earth Day. At the College, however, students, faculty and administrators still face the dilemma of how to prevent environmental waste.

Campus MovieFest

College campuses are a breeding ground for new and revolutionary ideas. However, students are often short-handed on the money and professional connections needed to present their ideas to the right people. This can cause a lot of ideas to never escape the dorm room, especially with a hard-to-break-into industry like film.

Green Ambassadors

Humans are creatures of habit. This seems especially true when it comes to destructive habits, such as not recycling, using too much electricity and other habits that cause extra strain on the environment. In order to facilitate student-to-student education about these habits, how destructive they are and how to stop them, a new program has been formed at the College called Sustainability Ambassadors.
