Senior Week follows tradition

October 7, 2003 Rachel Winstead 0

Senior year is not only about job hunting and graduate school searching. It also means saying goodbye.

The Senior Class council helps students hold on to the memories shared at the College – especially during Senior Week and all of the activities leading up to it. […]

Quaker finds liberation within theology

September 23, 2003 Matthew K. Fair 0

Hanging on the office door of Alvin Figueroa, associate professor of modern languages, is a sticker that reads in bold letters, “Drama Queen.” And, yes, it would be very easy to expect a life of drama for Figueroa, an openly gay Quaker. Attending classes at New Brunswick Theological Seminary, where he studies liberation theology, Figueroa said, he feels comfortable with his spirituality. […]

Fesko, 21, loved teaching, friends

September 23, 2003 Ashley Marty 0

Most students call the College “home” during their four or five years spent working towards a degree. But for Ryan Fesko, the College was like his own personal backyard from birth until his death in a car accident this summer.

On the night of May 17, Fesko was in a car with friends. […]

Buy me that! Marketing — are we paying attention?

September 23, 2003 Matthew K. Fair 0

The current crop of 21-year-olds in America have been exposed to an estimated 23 million marketing messages in their lifetime, according to an article by Michael Weiss in the Sept. 2003 issue of American Demographics. That’s 3,000 messages per day. This isn’t surprising when one considers that this increasingly important demographic spends about $187 billion a year on consumer goods. […]

My little collection — the ’80s

September 23, 2003 Teresa Rivas 0

Ah, the ’80s. While some people may write this decade off to spandex, big hair, and voodoo economics, there is something about this decade that makes it the best in history – we were born in it.

Sure, we’ve grown up and out of our legwarmers and Transformers pajamas, but many children of the ’80s still carry a special part of this decade with them in their heart. […]

Spigner withdrew from the College when unit was activated

The generation of Americans who grew up with G.I. Joe believes that the image of the American soldier is a big, buff, stern-faced man programmed to fight and kill. However, the American soldier today is far from this stereotype. The men and women fighting for this nation as soldiers are people with real jobs and lives who do not just live for conflict. […]

Hey handsome, if you’re looking for a good time, look no further than the great state of New Jersey.

You know us wild Jersey girls, we’re such entrepreneurs and are always looking for a good time. You can bet that if more than a few of us are living together, we’ll eventually mix business with pleasure. […]

Can I see some ID?

September 9, 2003 Teresa Rivas 25

It’s a day 20 years and 364 days in the making (that’s 183,936 hours, but who’s counting) – your 21st birthday.

Your last few birthdays were downhill since you got your driver’s license. With 18 years under your belt you could vote, join the army, even purchase tobacco and pornography. […]

New viewbooks — depictive or deceptive?

September 9, 2003 Zac Goldstein 0

“I live with 1,152 of my closest friends.”

These words may seem like the declaration of a worker ant, but they are actually the proud testimonial of a college student. The same student enjoys a college close to Philadelphia, New York City and the Poconos, has a chance to be hired by one of more than 400 companies and will more than likely pass by a mall if they travel 10 miles in any direction.

A loss for words: Reetika Vazirani, poet and professor, commits suicide at 40

September 9, 2003 Kristina Fiore 1

She walked into the classroom, her youthful eyes scanning the roomful of unfamiliar students’ faces. To professor and poet Reetika Vazirani, new places and different people were always familiar, a product of her frequent traveling and moving around. Despite her natural poise and grace, no one knew the pain that migration and other tragedies had inflicted on Vazirani’s life. […]
