College is a playground for children at Child Care Center

November 10, 2004 Daniela Flores 0

It’s a rainy afternoon and half of the College’s students can be found sitting quietly in class, dreading the moment they have to go outside and brave the downpour. The other half can be seen walking across campus with gloomy expressions on their faces.

Just when it seems like there isn’t a happy soul around, a burst of laughter comes from a room in Forcina Hall. […]

Speakers question state of America’s race relations

November 10, 2004 David Rout 0

50 years later, and where are we?

In the eyes of Lani Guinier, a professor at Harvard Law School, not as far as we might think.

“Blacks and whites still live very separate lives,” she said, and “essentially, legally compelled segregation gave way to socially acceptable separation. […]

Practicing paganism — it’s not hocus pocus

November 4, 2004 Christine Brozyna 0

When Will Lewis strolls around campus dressed in a Scottish kilt and flowing cape, carrying an oversized walking stick, heads turn – and he likes it that way. Lewis’ unique style has caused him to be the subject of glaring eyes, hushed whispers and confused stares around campus. […]

Learning stress management skills is key to sound health

November 4, 2004 Jessica Marr 0

Finances, relationships, sports, family, friends, schoolwork and more could give anyone an ulcer. In what’s often referred to as “the best years of their lives,” college students have a lot of things that make it difficult to balance everything that’s going on in their lives sometimes. […]

Student bikes across America to help build homes

November 4, 2004 Ben Leach 0

While many College students spend their summers relaxing at the beach or working as interns, senior health and exercise science and education major Chris Burns spent his biking across the country – and raising money for Habit for Humanity in the process.

He did so by participating in a program called Bike & Build, which teams up students from several colleges and universities and allows them to participate in the 3,800-mile cross country bike trip in order to raise awareness about Habitat for Humanity, the charitable foundation that builds homes for low-income families. […]

Graduate should not overlook importance of health

November 4, 2004 Lisa Williams 0

Finding a job, continuing with school, moving out, finding an apartment or house in which to live and making it on one’s own are all concerns of a college graduate. While these are all imporant things to be concerned about, many students seem to skirt around the issue of health insurance. […]

Music students help the world one note at a time

November 4, 2004 Daniela Flores 0

It’s not uncommon to hear about people who look for ways to help those in need, but it’s a bit less common to hear about people who are able to make a difference simply doing something they love. This, however, is just the opportunity that was given to some of the College’s music students as they participated in a “Play for Peace Perform-a-thon” at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts last month. […]

Protect your nose from a stuffy winter flu season

November 4, 2004 Tammy Tibbetts 0

It’s the kind of morning everyone dreads – waking up with a prickly throat, feeling lightheaded and sapped of energy, despite having gone to bed in seemingly perfect health. Quite possibly having caught a cold or even the flu, College students miss having Mom there to take their temperature and make them chicken soup, when they have professors, bosses and classmates expecting them to turn in papers, go to work and finish group projects. […]

Memory skills win student 15 minutes of fame

November 4, 2004 Audrey Levine 0

Christopher Turner, senior economics and statistics major, proved a perfect memory can be useful for more than test-taking when he participated in the USA Memory Championships and won third place. The win landed him a spot on the Oct. 22 episode of “The Jane Pauley Show,” which featured a program on improving memory. […]

From hip-hop to card reading–courses teach unique skills

October 20, 2004 Katelyn DeRogatis 0

Here’s a riddle: What courses currently offered on campus involve the Ace of Pentacles, the “V” position, Missy Elliot and Wyclef and a needle and thread? No clue? Here’s a hint: the courses are free. The College Union Board (CUB) has reintroduced the “mini courses,” the commitment-free, interesting and diverse courses created and taught by students. […]

Alternative medicines gaining legitimacy and popularity

October 20, 2004 David Rout 0

Acupuncture, herbal remedies, homeopathy – what really works? In the world of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), it just depends who you ask.

‘CAM,’ loosely defined, refers to any treatments – from herbs to massages – that are outside the norms of traditional medicine. […]

The Race for the White House: College’s students pick their candidate

October 20, 2004 Candida DeFonseca 0

On Nov. 2, the next president of the United States, either the incumbent George W. Bush or his opponent, Sen. John Kerry, will be chosen. Across the country, as well as the state and even at the College, the campaigns have kicked into high gear.

Kevin Kelly, sophomore English major, is one of the College’s students getting involved as a member of the Cinnaminson Republican Committee, as an intern for Sen. […]

Campaign ’04: The Final Days–Commentary

October 20, 2004 Matthew K. Fair 0

I find it difficult to grasp the fact that, like any other day, Nov. 2 will come and go and that this vicious campaign for the presidency will actually end. It seems as if we have been living with it forever, watching it, breathing quick and biting our nails. […]
