Game of the Week
The women's baskeball team earned the top seed in the New Jersey Atlantic Conference (NJAC) South with its victory over Kean University last Wednesday. The College will host William Paterson University, the No. 2 seed in the NJAC North, in the NJAC semifinals tonight. The two teams only met once this season, and the College won that game.
After a narrow victory in Week Five, Mike O'Donnell came out on top and is now the all-knowing inquisitor for this week's edition of speculative sports banter. Sports Editor Bobby Olivier, Copy Editor James Queally, and WTSR Sports Director Mike Leatherwood will discuss the latest and greatest NBA transactions, where two NFL free agents will call home next year and who is poised to make a run at the pennant in the upcoming MLB season.
New York City has always been a baseball city come summertime. Whether you're hopping on the subway or grabbing a bag of nuts on the street, you're always somewhere near a pinstriped jersey or a blue-and-orange baseball cap. With all due respect to the Knicks and the Rangers, the Mets and Yankees own New York.
Spring has sprung for Lions' tennis. The women's team opened their warm-weather schedule on Sunday as they hosted Muhlenberg College in their indoor tennis complex. The No. 17 Lions handed the Mules a decisive loss, disposing of them by a final score of 8-1.
What was supposed to be a rebuilding year may have turned into a playoff year, but the men's basketball team is surely still bitter that their first home postseason contest in years ended in a double-digit loss to the Scarlet Raiders of Rutgers-Newark.
In what was one of the most emotional and highly anticipated contests of the year, the Lions brought their A-game on their home floor last Wednesday night as they took down the Cougars of Kean University 73-61. With the win, the Lions clinched the top spot in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) and a first- round bye in the NJAC playoffs.
The cornfields are calling. Following stellar performances at Sunday's Metropolitan Conference Championships, the College will be sending five grapplers to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the NCAA Division III Championships in two weeks. The Lions crowned three individual Metropolitan champions on Sunday, and two others competed in the final match in their respective weight classes to earn bids to the big show at U.
Mike Tracey's arrest on Feb. 18 has brought serious issues to the forefront of the campus consciousness. When are police within their rights to arrest someone? Once arrested, how should the person be treated? How willing are we to pursue intellectual discourse on this campus?
The police involved in Tracey's arrest showed where they stand.
Although cheap shots are the bread and butter of U.S. politics, I appreciate a good challenge. However tempting it is, I will avoid the low-hanging fruit of the College Republicans for bringing Ann Coulter to the the College.
I can, however, laugh at the absurdity of spending more than $20,000 on someone who says things like, "Even Alexander the Great couldn't win in Afghanistan," and "The O.
It seems common at the College for a student to do something defiant and for police to respond unprofessionally. As a senior, I've read a fair share of official e-mails and Signal articles concerning Campus Police who have seemingly violated student rights by behaving in a way that did not show enough civility.
As an alumnus of the College, I value the College's role as a forum for the presentation and debate of ideas. A college should be the place for exploration of even radical concepts. Free speech and artistic expression should be encouraged in every way. It is not required of us to respect opposing views, but we must respect the right of their advocates to express those views.
Students were able to log in to PAWS (Primary Academic Web-based Services) for the first time on Monday,.
The new system is replacing TESS and SIS as the official student administration system and will hold all student information.
