If you’ve been reading my column this year, you may know that I tend to jump between genres. One week I’m talking about The Doors, and the next week I make a huge left turn to Aphex Twin. In my defense, I enjoy covering and listening to popular music of all kinds, but as a [...]

A closing ceremony was held Dec. 5 in the Bossone Atrium for the 15 Drexel University students and 15 LIFT clients who completed the special topics course “Urban Life: Re-Examining the City through an Experiential Lens.” The students came together this fall term to “explore the relationship between individuals and the city,” according to the [...]
The Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design partnered with the LeBow College of Business to host “A View from the Top with Ali Velshi” Dec. 3 in Behrakis Grand Hall. Students, faculty and alumni gathered to hear Velshi’s input on topics including the current economy, political controversy and broadcast journalism today. Velshi is [...]
Try as they might, the Drexel men’s basketball team can’t seem to get a break on the hardwood these days, and even when they do, stringing two breaks together is equally elusive. After notching a solid win Nov. 25 against Rice University to end their stint at the DirecTV Classic, the Dragons came home hoping [...]
The Drexel women’s basketball team continued its hot start to the season by winning the TD Bank Classic Dec. 1. The win came after a close three-point overtime loss to the 24th ranked University of South Carolina, and head coach Denise Dillon and her team were looking to get back on the winning track and [...]
Drexel’s Concert Band held its fall performance Dec. 2 in Mandell Theater. The large and dynamic group, consisting of more than 70 students from almost every major, gave a performance just as varied as the band’s membership. Led by Wesley Broadnax, the ensemble covered a vast array of musical periods spanning over five centuries, including [...]
Chardonnay was the first wine I fell in love with. It was simple, just fruity enough, easy to drink and didn’t leave a stain if I accidentally spilled it on my clothes while I worked on sophisticating my swirling techniques. I loved it so much that I decided to branch out and explore a larger variety [...]
Peter Rampulla Finance and entrepreneurship, Pre-Junior Q: Who inspires your style? A: I’m a very big Thom Browne fan, and if anything else, I really like Yves Saint Laurent, but when he mainly worked for Christian Dior, not his own line in particular. And I like a lot of Jil Sander’s stuff. Q: What do you [...]
From a young age I started displaying a small, pre-lit Christmas tree in my room each year for the holiday season and decorated it based on my current style preferences. I have since graduated to a larger tree for my current apartment, but over the years I have accumulated quite the collection of decorations, most [...]
In less than a month, it will be time to propose New Year’s resolutions. Unsurprisingly, the New Year’s resolution that finds itself at the top of Americans’ lists, year after year, is to lose weight. However, for many, weight loss is an insurmountable task. The mindset many seem to possess is a roadblock that inhibits [...]
The northern East Coast of the United States experienced an anomaly a month ago when it was hit by a natural disaster that was uncharacteristic of the region. The hurricane turned out to be a Category 1 disaster, a rating at which many southern folks might have guffawed. However, the difference between southern hurricanes and [...]
This issue of The Triangle will be our last until the new year, and as such, The Editorial Board thought it would be appropriate to paint a picture of the university that Drexel students will attend in 2013. The following changes won’t be immediate, but Drexel University will be virtually unrecognizable a year from now, [...]
Daniel Diazdelcastillo, a freshman at Drexel University, still has over a year until the start of his first co-op, but his chances of interning at NASA are already great. A materials science and engineering major, Diazdelcastillo, 18, spent six weeks this past summer as an intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. [...]
December is AIDS Awareness Month, a key opportunity to raise awareness of the disease as well as celebrate the success of treatments and prevention services. The Drexel University College of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine is a highly regarded HIV/AIDS research program. The program is focused on working toward a functional cure [...]
A few months ago, the women’s basketball team was staring at a few holes left by their four graduated seniors. Tyler Hale, Marisa Crane, Ayana Lee and All-Colonial Athletic Association first-teamer Kamile Nacickaite were Dragons for four winning seasons, including being part of the team’s only conference championship in program history. While they still had [...]
Something has been lost in the disappointing 2-6 start for the Drexel men’s basketball team. Samme Givens graduated last year, and Chris Fouch is lost for the season, which sure has given us a lot to talk about in the midst of the team’s early-season struggles. Still, we fully expect our Dragons to bounce back. [...]
The greater Philadelphia area is characterized by artistic culture and creativity on every street. Whether in University City or all the way down in South Philadelphia, there are countless beautiful stores and boutiques to admire. US*U.S., a boutique located in Old City, is no exception. What makes US*U.S. unique is that everything inside is made [...]
Drexel wrestling bounced back in its first homestand of the season, sweeping the weekend’s matches. In the first match at the Daskalakis Athletic Center this season Dec. 1, the team wrestled hard en route to a victory against the Virginia Military Institute. The Dragons followed up their strong performance with another impressive win the next [...]
Four Drexel swimmers traveled to Austin, Texas, for the AT&T Winter National Championships from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 to compete against some of the nation’s best swimmers. Winter Nationals is one of the fastest short-distance meets in the world, making qualifying for it that much more impressive. Athletes from many different levels, including collegiate, [...]
What do you get your Secret Santa when you only have a $15 budget and you’re into cooking? Well, some homemade cookie cake and hot chocolate, of course! It’s Secret Santa week at The Triangle, and I’m already patting myself on the back for bringing it back after not having it last year. We have [...]
