October 13, 2004 Kristina Fiore 0

Barbara Ehrenreich appeals to college students. She opens her Community Learning Day keynote address with remarks about underage drinking.

Students cheer to that. […]

While there are many action films that focus on the impossible quests of a perfect hero, there are very few films that focus on the heroics of everyday men. “Ladder 49” is one of these few: the film tells the story of firemen, a group that is all too often left out of the headlines. […]

Zombie flick spoofs horror genre conventions

October 13, 2004 Tom Dunford 0

“Shaun of the Dead” is a movie that doesn’t overstay its welcome – which is good, because it is doubtful that the film’s premise could sustain one more second over its 99-minute running time.

The movie stars Simon Pegg, who also co-wrote the screenplay, as Shaun, an underachieving Brit who may just be the most oblivious person ever to have lived. […]

October 6, 2004 Kristen Zimmerman 0

Boo Rowan! Everyone has screamed it during at least one game between Rowan University and the College and some have even emblazoned the backs of their T-shirts with the catch phrase. The College’s athletic rivalry with Rowan University may be one of the strongest and most widespread on campus. […]

October 6, 2004 Scott Miccio 0

For the third straight week, the College’s men’s soccer team was held scoreless in two straight games. This week, however, the team paid dearly as it suffered two defeats, a 2-0 loss to Rowan University and a 1-0 loss to Rutgers University-Camden.

Although, two weeks ago the Lions were able to get by with two scoreless ties, their luck ran out last week against the two New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) opponents. […]

October 6, 2004 Kristina Cossaboon 0

Everyone was hoping for a repeat of last year’s football game between the College and Rowan University on Friday night.

The scene looked quite similar – with parking lots full of tailgaters, extremely long lines at the ticket booth and a packed stadium complete with screaming fans, confetti and five guys painted blue with the yellow letters L-I-O-N-S on their chests. […]
