The Chip: My Weekend Without Water

September 30, 2019 Signal Contributor 0

Water — it makes up the very basis of human life. Without it, all life on this planet would surely perish. We drink it. We use it to make Ramen. We do our number 2’s in it, and sometimes, we wash our hands with it after. […]

People should unite against climate change

September 30, 2019 Michelle Lampariello 0

Ask anyone who attended one of the many worldwide climate strikes what needs to be done to meet their demands, and they’ll likely call for widespread top-down change. While I personally have not crunched the numbers on global greenhouse gas emissions or rising sea levels, I see merit in their argument that we need to make large-scale changes. […]

Arts deserve to receive same respect as sports

September 30, 2019 Signal Contributor 0

A majority of children are automatically enrolled in sports over dance classes when they’re out of the womb. Dance and music are not a parent’s first choice when deciding what their child should start getting involved in unless the parents themselves have done it either. Why is that? […]

The College student lifestyle can be summed up by one catch-all phrase — work hard, play harder. That’s why after an entire week of classes, clubs and homework, I found it absolutely necessary that on Saturday night, the entire Chip staff went to see former child actor and current one-hit-wonder, Drake Bell, perform at Rider University, located right in our very own backyards in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.

Imagine sitting in the library every day studying your textbooks from cover to cover, taking out thousands of dollars in student loans and spending four to six years working toward your education, only to find out that the job of your dreams has a catch — you’ll work 40-hour weeks without getting a paycheck.
