Cherry Blossoms at Sakura Sunday

Come spring, my classmates rally in the warmer weather. The campus transforms with colorful flowers bursting by the sidewalks and sunbathers lounging on Haber Green. Meanwhile, the change of seasons means, to me, that I have to begrudgingly pack away my cute sweaters in exchange for allergies...

Flower Power

After over three months of grey skies and bitter cold, I’ve come down with an incurable malady: spring fever. A nature enthusiast, winter seems longer to me each year. Luckily, I was able to soothe my symptoms of restlessness and gloom at Philadelphia’s 2019 Flower Show. This tradition stretches...

Music Lovers: Unforgettable Nights Await You

If you’ve read some of my past posts, you probably know that I love music. I’ve been singing and playing instruments for as long as I can remember, and I am currently pursuing a Music minor here at Arcadia. But, this love extends past just singing solos and playing in the orchestra. Ever since...

7 Things Arcadia Taught Me

Rewind four years ago: I was a high school senior who had no clue where he would end up. A high school senior with big dreams and lots of plans, but no means of executing those plans. I was about to make one of the most important decisions in my life by choosing Arcadia University in Glenside, Pa...

New Perspective, New Commitment

When my group and I arrived at the University of Sciences, I was amazed at the architecture. As a Pre-engineering major, I became fixated on the buildings, which attracted me with their modern and high-tech nature. I got so carried away adoring Philadelphia’s architecture, I almost forgot why I was...

Hipsters, Punks, Artists— Oh, My!

Nearly everything has changed since I came to Arcadia as a wide-eyed, naive 17-year-old. I have different friends, different hobbies, different jobs. The two semesters I spent abroad, although incredible, weakened the connection I feel with both the Arcadia community and Philadelphia at large....

Philadelphia’s Phantoms: A Stroll Through History

One thing I’ve learned for certain in my time at Arcadia is that people who live in and around Philadelphia love their city. So many people take pride in Philadelphia, and I can understand why. It’s the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection), it has a rich and deep political history, and...

My Search for Toynbee Tiles

In the streets of Philadelphia, messages of science fiction and political propaganda lay hidden in plain sight, embedded in asphalt. Mysterious tiles that say “TOYNBEE IDEA IN MOViE `2001 RESURRECT DEAD ON PLANET JUPITER” have been appearing overnight on crosswalks since the 1980s....

A Knight at the Opera

As I finished my sophomore year, I had a mid-undergrad crisis. Was I doing enough with my education? Was I taking advantage of all the opportunities in my life? Is my resume bedazzled and decorated enough for graduate school? With these questions plaguing my mind, I decided to take...

Surviving My First-Ever Yoga Class

Spring break is the most awaited week of the spring semester. While everyone went off to London, Greece, Paris, and many more amazing places, I, on the other hand, did yoga. One of my Journalism assignments for spring break was to write about an activity that I’d never done before. As yoga...

For Public Transportation Newbies

In Florida, there is plenty of sunshine, heat, and beaches. Some may want to add old people. I never realized until I came here that Florida is looked at as the “Retirement State.” I find it funny that I now see the label come alive when I visit home. What you won’t find, for the...
