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...

Finding Inner Peace with Invisible Illness

When one thinks of the phrase “coming out,” usually the first topic that comes to mind is sexuality. However, there are multiple aspects of one’s identity than can be difficult to talk about, elements of ourselves which are not often visible to those around us. These identities can incorporate a...

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...

Our Cosplay Community

Cosplay is moving toward the forefront of pop culture and the peak of ultrafan hobbies, yet it often baffles my relatives and others who haven’t been introduced to the lifestyle. To better explain the eccentric hobby, it’s best we run through some brief history. The word “cosplay” is a...

Valentine’s Date at a Kitty Cafe

Students face all sorts of challenges when they leave home. For some, it’s learning how to cook for themselves, not relying on their parents, or navigating in an unfamiliar place. For me, it’s being away from my cats. My two cats at home, Bubbie and Misch, had always been right by my...

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...
