It’s Sunday morning, and my Keurig is pumping out a decent cup of coffee for me to enjoy. I’ve been in New Jersey playing volleyball all weekend, so it’d be a good idea for me to catch up on what’s been happening in the world the past couple days. Here’s an idea; why not head over to BuzzFeed? They’ll catch me up right away and I’ll be able to converse with anyone I want regarding the weekend’s headlines.  More…

March for freedom and justice for all Reply

By Morgan Van Wickler – Junior Art Director

People of all ages, backgrounds, races, and cultures assembled in Boston Common on January 21 for the Women’s March for America.  While the march was heavily focused on women’s rights, it represented much more.  The march represented the country standing in solidarity with each other, showing newly-elected Washington that all citizens of the U.S. will fight for their rights.  More…

By Leanne Signoriello – Opinion Editor

The cons of the event Reply

By Ryan Fitzgerald – Co-Editor-in-Chief

Symposium can be a lot of different things. It can be a day of gratitude for some, having accomplished a semester-long project to present in front of admiring peers, faculty, and community members alike. For others it is a day of relief. After months of planning, the day has finally come where everything falls into place and many congratulations are given.

Symposium has value Reply

Many people I know use Symposium as a day to catch up on work, on sleep, go out with friends the night before (and I have too) but I know Symposium day is worth much more.
