Movies to Keep You Sane Amid the Insanity

Living on campus during a pandemic is strange. No events and large gatherings in general means we residents have to find other ways to entertain ourselves. And as a Media and Communication student with too much time and two guests allowed at a time in my apartment, I’ve been watching a lot of...

My Favorite Books of 2020

While 2020 has definitely been rough for everyone, one thing that has kept me grounded throughout the year has been reading. I have managed to read 85 books so far, and hope to hit 100 by the end of the year. My friends always ask me for reading recommendations so I figured I would share my top 5...

PRIDE at Home: Finding Community in Isolation

I’ve probably (definitely) announced my sexuality on the Internet way too many times for many people’s liking, but here’s the thing—LGBTQ+ issues haven’t diminished in relevance. And I’m a firm believer that positive change starts with conversations. So let’s talk about this together.  [...

Loco Mag: Arcadia’s Hidden Gem

As a bright-eyed freshman, I wanted to experience all that Arcadia had to offer. So when Lisa Holderman, chair of the Media and Communication department, recommended I take a practicum related to my interest in journalism, I jumped at the chance. Practicums at Arcadia aren’t just...

Need Your Flow State Activated? Try a Hobby

Today, people consume much more than they produce. This isn't inherently an issue in society, but I think that the value and rewards of producing something by yourself are often overlooked. Hobbies are activities that are done regularly for leisure and can include a wide variety of things....

Coronavirus: Behind the Camera

In troubled times like these, where motivation may seem more scarce than ever, coronavirus-quarantine-living can lead many to lay comfortably with soda and chips in hand without a bother to be had. As for myself, I have been trying my hardest to use this time effectively to better my...

Confessions From an Art Major

I might be biased, but being an Art major is pretty awesome. It isn’t easy by any means, but I get to do what I love almost every day—and our department isn’t half bad, either. It’s equipped with studios and state-of-the-art equipment that are unique to Arcadia. Most majors are generally similar...

Learn to Letter With Me!

I picked up hand-lettering in my junior year of high school. In art class, I saw a good friend of mine hand-lettering, and I decided that I wanted to try it. Now, as I’m a rising junior attending university, I’ve developed pretty decent skills. I’m completely self-taught, so I thought I would share...
