Coming off a tough two-point loss against local rival Saint Joseph’s University, Drexel women’s basketball head coach Denise Dillon knew they would again be tested against another local school: La Salle University.

The Drexel University men’s basketball team earned its first win of the season Nov. 17 against the rival University of Pennsylvania 61-59.

The art of enjoying food is governed by many rules. Truly, it is these rules that separate my craft from that of simple ingestion. Now, I must apologize to all of my readers, for I fear that I may have violated one of these most important tenets in my quest to bring you even closer [...]
I don’t recall anyone ever taking a poll of the faculty and staff who work in the MacAlister-Creese complex or the students who use it daily about whether they wanted the building to be permanently embalmed behind an academic version of the Twin Towers. I’ve taken my own private one, though, and have yet to [...]
“The best of the best in North America.” Those are the words that President and CEO Michael Melaniphy of the American Public Transportation Association used while presenting SEPTA the 2012 Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement Award. While SEPTA administrators will be quick to embellish on the prestigious award, it doesn’t take long to find a [...]
Coming out of high school, one of our most important decisions as students was selecting a major. That one choice determined what kinds of colleges and universities we would apply to and provide focus for our next four or five years of learning. As Drexel students, our various co-ops have provided us with real-world job [...]
The alleged “standards” of journalism have failed me. They have failed the Israelis, and they have failed the Palestinian people. By now, most students have heard about the recent battle between Israel and Hamas. However, most students are extremely ignorant to the situation in its entirety, and I cannot blame them — I blame the [...]
As a lifetime resident of the Greater Philadelphia area, I have a connection to the City of Brotherly Love that students from other areas may not have. I love this city, from the depth of the great Northeast, to my people’s Italian haven in South Philly, to the beauty of Old City, to the quirky [...]

Every successful basketball team has leadership at the helm of its squad, be it a couple seniors who have been around the block or the best player on the team taking up the cause. For the Drexel women’s basketball team, it’s no different, and senior Hollie Mershon has answered the call after Kamile Nacickaite and [...]
A recruit from New Haven, Conn., Tavon Allen missed his entire first year of Drexel basketball after suffering a stress fracture in the preseason. The injury, which Allen described as a “freak thing,” pushed back his debut to the court, as he was redshirted. Considering the excitement that comes with one’s first collegiate season, it [...]

This week I tasted the third beer in a series I’m doing: Innis & Gunn’s Rum Cask. This beer is a scotch ale, which is a family of beer seen only occasionally here in the United States. These beers are typically very malt focused, so they are casualties of America’s obsession with hops. I’m beginning [...]

Tsunoda has developed games for [...]
