When Michele Lise Tarter, associate professor of English, first learned about the rising number of women going to prison, she wasn't sure that she could do anything about it.
"I resisted at first because it seemed so frightening," Tarter, who was living in Illinois at the time, said.
Stores may be ready to put away the winter clothes, but for the rest of us it will be two months until we're ready to break out spring styles. That means there's just enough time to go out and pick up some of the winter's best fashion trends. From military-style clothing to lace and ruffles, there's something for everyone.
"This new facility will serve as an intellectual, cultural and social center for the College and provide state-of-the-art library services to the College community well into the 21st century."
So states the Library Building Program in a vision statement released in 2002.
There's no doubt you've seen her somewhere on campus. College President R. Barbara Gitenstein is everywhere. You can find her giving speeches at ribbon-cutting ceremonies, guest lecturing in your class or even sitting right next to you at one of the College's cultural events.
New Jersey's gubernatorial election has come and gone. Democrat Jon Corzine is the next governor of New Jersey. Only one question remains: How involved were students at the College in the election?
Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer. Some students were very involved in the election process, while others barely made it out to vote.
Walk inside the first floor lounge in New Residence Hall and you'll find an old, barely working piano. Most students who live in the building will probably never come near it, but for Dave Schlossberg, senior piano performance major, playing that old piano was the perfect way to pass the time while he waited to share the story of how his life has changed since being involved in a major car accident earlier this year.
It's not often that every single character in a movie adds to its quality, but that is exactly what makes it such a happy surprise when a film like that comes along.
"In Her Shoes," based on the book of the same title by Jennifer Weiner, focuses on the lives of two very different sisters and, although it is not an ensemble film, also gives valuable screen time to the loved ones who surround them.
It's early on a Sunday morning and students are walking sleepily into Eickhoff Dining Hall. They're met with a warm smile and greeting that could only belong to one person - Larry Stevens.
"Good morning," the dining hall cashier says. "How you doing today? How was your weekend?"
Standing at an impressive 6 feet 5 inches, Larry said he is known as the "Gentle Giant.
People watch romantic comedies for a very specific reason. Sure, they might watch them to get a laugh, but many people turn to romantic comedies because they like to see that undying love somehow always overcomes whatever ridiculous situation the writers decide to put it through.
When Annelise Catanzaro, Student Government Association (SGA) president, first started her new life at the College three years ago, things weren't going exactly as planned.
After serving as class president during both her junior and senior years in high school, Catanzaro wanted to continue her involvement with student government at the college level.
As easy as it may sound, putting pictures to words can be a complicated matter. But complicated or not, that was the task members of the art faculty were given when they were asked to hold an exhibition of pieces based on Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass."
The English department approached Lois Fichner-Rathus, associate professor of art and former co-chair of the department, about joining in on the Walt Whitman Symposium last year.
"Money, is that all there is?"
Out of all the questions a student could ask a business professor, this is probably one of the hardest to answer. That's why Douglas Peterson, assistant professor of management and international business, didn't know what to say when he was asked the question a few years ago.
A year ago, Noel Ramirez, junior women's and gender studies and communication studies major, would have laughed in your face if you told him he would spend the summer of 2005 working as an environmental activist. But, as is often the case, it's those things that you never think you'd do that somehow change your life.
"Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" may have been trying to bring in new viewers with repeats, but the real surprise of the summer television season was the popularity of a string of new reality series. From rocker Tommy Lee attending college to wannabe dancers, reality shows covered just about everything you could imagine.
