Crazy Love in a Philly Parade

Masses of exuberant, frenzied fans stood shoulder-to-shoulder for hours. You couldn’t see actual land for what seemed like miles. “Three’s the charm,” they yelled over and over. Sure, the air smelled a bit questionable, but no one seemed to notice or care. This was history. This was Philly’s first...

Eating Organic On A College Budget

By my junior year of college, I discovered that I could no longer eat gluten or sugar. Naturally, this sort of forced me to eat organic, since gluten and sugar seem to be in everything. But eating organic is so expensive! Right? It can be, yes. But I’ve found that, if you do it right...

1,278 Miles

“I’m so ready to be home.” A year ago, I could have told you exactly what that meant. But when I moved to Arcadia, a lot more changed than my address. In my first months here, I have learned to be more independent, form my own opinions, manage my time by my own accord, as well as a...

When Faith Meets Depression

It is an unfortunate, and often crippling, misconception that the Christian life exempts the believer from hardships. Believers and nonbelievers alike cleave to the notion that, if a person is in a time of trouble, they either aren’t Christian enough or God isn’t good enough. Though...

One Wonderful Saturday: Japanese Cinema and Sights of Chinatown

Ever since I was young, I have been enamored with Japanese pop culture and history. Sometimes I feel myself wishing that my interest had been for somewhere like Great Britain— it would be a lot easier if my dream destination required travel only across the Atlantic rather than traversing an entire...

Keswick Knight Life

Philadelphia is a college student’s dream come true: street fairs, cheap food, 18-and-up clubs, museums, bars— the works. As Arcadia students, all of these activities are practically at our fingertips. But what happens when you don’t have the $13 for an (outrageously overpriced) SEPTA...

Experience That Fun High— No, Not That Kind

Fact: Not every college student likes to party. Now wait, before you X out, this is not a post to rag alcohol or irresponsible behavior. But for students who aren’t part of the party scene, there are alternatives for a different kind of entertainment that can get you that fun high without the, well...

Mid-Semester Stress Busters

Sixth week evaluations are a distant memory and, at this point, most of us just want the semester to be over already. Even though school can be rough, it is important to try to make the most of your free time by enjoying yourself on and around campus as much as you can. A lot of people tend...

Namaste, Konichiwa, Ni Hau, Xin Chào and Salaam!

I remember waving to my family from the other side of the departure gate at the airport with a wide range of emotions as I set to embark on my new college journey. Although I was thrilled at the opportunity of living in a new country, the reality of leaving home for four long months was...

This Feels Right

Summer was pretty incredible. Not just because of the countless trips to the beach or time to catch up with friends. I mean those were great, but this summer was different. For the first time in my life, I got to experience a slice of professional theatre through PlayPenn’s new play-development...

Why Am I Learning This?

Throughout my educational career, I’ve heard people asking the question: Why do I need to learn this? It starts in elementary school with fractions and long division, then turns into geometry proofs and Shakespeare sonnets. Even now, when we’re supposedly studying courses relevant to our careers,...
