A car crashed through the storefront of the 7-Eleven located at the corner of 34th Street and Lancaster Avenue June 6, and thankfully no one was harmed. According to Drexel Police Chief Edward Spangler, a 59-year-old-male was pulling into the 7-Eleven parking lot that afternoon when his accelerator got stuck and he couldn’t stop the [...]
First, I’d just like to describe my first-ever assignment for The Triangle. I will always remember the day I moved into Towers at the beginning of my freshman year. After all of the hard work and heavy lifting was done, my parents and I decided to roam the campus. We walked down 33rd from Arch [...]
Yep, this is the end for your old pal Joey. The worst math student in the history of Drexel University is graduating. I was told I could write about whatever I wanted here, and because I’m graduating, the editors have to publish it. So, here is why I am convinced there is a conspiracy going [...]
The Drexel Dance Ensemble held its spring concert, titled “Piece of Mind,” the weekend of May 31 through June 2. The performance showcased the work of eight student-choreographers, a Drexel faculty member and a professional guest artist. I was lucky enough to snag an interview with one of these student-choreographers, Drexel junior and Miss Philadelphia [...]
Roberto Salome In just a few short days, some of us will be graduating. While we have all chosen different majors and concentrations, attending Drexel has unified us all in more ways than one. We have all learned some of the same invaluable lessons that can only be acquired at this University. 1. The [...]
College graduation is a time of jubilation. After years of elementary school, middle school, high school, and finally four (or five) years of college, graduates can take pride in many things. The most memorable of those is having close friends and family watch them walk across that stage, shake hands with the administration and accept [...]

The economic growth of our country is driven by connectivity. Look at the regions that are thriving and growing, and you [...]

I am a Dragon. There is a long, narrow corridor in the dormitory that I spent four of my high school years running up and down. About two people across, it was lined on both sides with pictures of sports teams that had represented the dorm in intramural competition as far back as 1855. Cricket, [...]

With commencement ceremonies upon us, graduating seniors are looking for ways to celebrate their accomplishments. Sure it can seem a bit cliche, but sparkling wines will inevitably be consumed in abundance at all of these events. They’re actually rather perfect for a party — everybody loves a wine that sparkles, and not even your grandmother [...]
Drexel’s very own female a cappella group, The TrebleMakers, held its spring concert June 1 in the Stein Auditorium.

Ah, Bikini Bottom, home to our favorite sea sponge and starfish, but also famous for the most sweet, juicy, perfect fruit ever known to mankind. I’m talking, of course, of the pineapple that SpongeBob SquarePants inhabits. Guarded by a rough, ominous exterior, the pineapple and I used to have a love-hate relationship. I’d be hacking [...]

Based on projections from several models, the hatchling survival rate will decrease 50 percent in the next 100 years. The study concluded that changing [...]
The initial incentive that comes with competing is rather obvious: Play at a very high level, and hopefully you will be rewarded for your efforts. The Drexel University field hockey team certainly justified its strong efforts with success on the field at the 2012 Women’s National Championships.
