Two games into conference play, the Drexel women’s soccer team’s unbeaten streak remains intact at nine and counting. The first two teams in the conference to get a shot at breaking the streak, George Mason and Towson universities, failed to snap the Dragon’s run.

In the final two men’s soccer matches of the 2011 season, Drexel defeated No. 12 James Madison University by a score of 2-0 and played to a 1-1 draw against No. 16 Old Dominion University.

Summer may have come to an end, but there is much to look forward to in the fall, especially at Drexel. The new Market 16 & Noodle Bar opened up Sept. 24, providing us Dragons with yet another dining option. Stacked with all the essential groceries, fresh produce, and a noodle and sushi bar, this [...]
As the 2012 presidential election rapidly approaches, many college students across the country are preparing to vote for the first time. Or at least they should be.

I recently went to my hometown of Spring Grove, Pa. to visit my parents for the weekend. While there, my mother and I stopped at a small farmer’s market to pick up some fresh produce. When we arrived, the small store was packed! Now I had never been in this store before, but my mother, [...]
Quantitative easing is an emergency monetary policy used during recessions. The Federal Reserve plans to buy $40 billion every month in mortgage-backed securities in the open-ended QE3 until the labor market improves significantly. QE3 is the third round of buying long-term bonds that the Fed will be using to target unemployment, which is a very [...]
When you’re one of the biggest bands from the ’90s, the golden age of alternative music, and you’re staging a comeback in 2012, it’s helpful not to look your age. Luckily, No Doubt has lead singer Gwen Stefani, the ageless Marilyn Monroe-esque ska punk rocker who looks just as good today as she did when [...]
As an up-and-coming rapper, imagine this nine-month stretch: Release a highly regarded mixtape; get signed to Rick Ross’ label, Maybach Music Group; perform in front of 42,000 people at the first annual Made in America festival; have a music video from your mixtape premiered on “106 & Park”; and go on your first nationwide tour. [...]
Drexel University’s W.W. Hagerty Library decided this past summer to remove the reference desk because it caused confusion to new students. Because most people are still unaware of the process, Jennifer James Lee, the marketing and events associate for Drexel University Libraries, explained, “Traditionally, libraries have two separate desks, and you know, you go to [...]
Helen Nowotnik, a pre-junior studying communication, was elected editor-in-chief of The Triangle for the fall and winter terms.

The Drexel University field hockey team has had a roller-coaster ride of a season through the past10 games. After five consecutive wins to open the season, the Dragons dropped three in a row on the road, effectively losing any momentum they established early on.

Let’s start this off by getting two things straight: No one actually “loves” being cold, and the only good thing about the oncoming bleak months (besides the oversized fashion magazines) is the pumpkin-spiced everything. I did a little test at the grocery story this week. I took note of every seasonal pumpkin spice item I [...]
I’ve always had a special affinity for London. Most Drexel students grow up loving or loathing New York, but I’ve always bypassed our neighbor along Route 1 in favor of the Big Smoke across the pond. So when London, to everyone’s disbelief and Paris’ ire, managed to host the Olympic Games for an unprecedented third [...]
The 2012-13 season for Drexel men’s and women’s crew begins Sept. 29 as they take part in the third annual Rumson Boat Race in Rumson, N.J.
