The obvious definition of “Twentysomething” is “a young adult in his twenties,” but the term encompasses so much more than that: a period in one’s life marked by indecision, frivolity, harmless egotism, a still incomplete world perspective, the desire to cling to youth and lack of responsibility and some serious soul-searching.

After being on a two-year hiatus, R&B singer Brandy has returned with her fourth album, “Afrodisiac,” showing that she still has what it takes to keep us listening.
This particular album, however, does not surpass her previous efforts, at least not vocally. […]

Most students at the College over the age of 21 have probably been to KatManDu, although for anyone who may be living in a bubble, or who is turning 21 shortly, KatManDu is a must on the checklist of things that every bonafide student needs to try before graduation. […]
Despite drawing a very small audience, New York City-based female rock band The Drive took students for a wild ride at the Vox Rocks! concert last Thursday at the Rathskeller.
The concert was a benefit for Voices for Planned Parenthood (VOX).
“We needed to raise funds for VOX (and) I actually found (the band) online,” Nina Davidson, junior English and women’s and gender studies major and VOX president, said. […]
It’s no wonder that with lyrics such as “I’m drunk by noon, but that’s okay/I’ll be president someday,” musical group Sublime has managed to maintain a steady fan base among the college crowd since its debut album, “40 Oz. to Freedom,” was released.
It is also no wonder, then, that students from the College eagerly anticipated the arrival of Badfish, a Sublime tribute band, in its second visit to the Rat last Tuesday night. […]
Well it’s fall again, and that can mean only one thing: football season. Yes, the titans of the tundra have returned for another season of exciting non-stop action. And there are three things that everyone should be paying close attention to this fall: Barry Bonds’ quest to move past Babe Ruth on the all-time home run list, Ichiro’s pursuit to break an 84-year-old record, and the tight playoff races that exist in both leagues. […]

Saturdays are rugby days this semester at the College. Players and fans alike are getting ready for what they hope is going to be the best season yet for the women’s rugby team.
One might think that a team without a full-time coach would struggle trying to live up to the expectations of their competitive Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union Division, but in past seasons the women’s team has continued to rise above and beyond anyone’s expectations. […]
The women’s soccer team triumphed 2-0 over the Red Hawks of Montclair State University (MSU) in the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) opener on Thursday night.

The College’s men’s soccer team did not kick off its New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) schedule the way it had hoped. Last Saturday, the Lions suffered their second loss of the year, 3-0, at undefeated Montclair State University.

The College’s football team narrowly edged Division I-AA LaSalle 6-0 on Saturday afternoon to improve to 2-0 on the season.
Faced with a horrendously rain-soaked field, the Lions’ defense held the Explorers scoreless. Sophomore running back Cory Schoonover blocked a punt and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown and the only score of the game in the second quarter, coming away with the win. […]
