There is no amount of stress that the warm, wet nose of an adorable puppy can’t banish, or at least that’s the theory behind Puppy Pawlooza held Dec. 4 in Gerri C. LeBow Hall. The event was hosted by the Campus Activities Board; Active Minds at Drexel University, a student run peer-to-peer mental health advocacy […]

Vegetarians, especially vegans, are often questioned about nutrition deficiency. This can be valid concern based on a vegetarian’s dietary choices, as one could theoretically just eat pizza and fries on a vegetarian regimen, but a well-balanced diet is always important regardless of one’s lifestyle or philosophy on eating. Opponents of veganism occasionally flag vegans for […]
Coming off consecutive defeats, the Drexel women’s basketball team was unable to halt its losing streak Dec. 4 in a 65-60 loss to Colgate University. The Dragons struggled early on both offensively and defensively against a Colgate team that was hot in the first half. Despite Drexel’s strong start to the second half and even […]
You may have seen Philly-based alternative group Moonshine Heather around campus. This singer-songwriter duo is a product of the Drexel Music Industry Program, and they look to launch their career into the music scene. Featuring Alexanda Berenson and Maura Mullen, both on guitar and vocals, Moonshine Heather is inspired by a variety of genres, creating […]
If, in fact, “corporations are people, my friend” (shout-out to Mitt Romney for that one), what kind of people are they? Can they have a religion? And, if so, who gets to decide? That’s a question we’ll get to, but first some background. In a way, Romney is right — corporations are people, just not […]
On its 150th anniversary, Thanksgiving doesn’t look like what it used to. While the feast has been attributed to the Puritans’ celebration in 1621, the modern holiday was declared by Abraham Lincoln in November 1863 to celebrate the Union’s advances in the Civil War. For Lincoln, winning the war meant maintaining the national unity intended […]
What’s the link between two tickets to the U.S. Open golf tournament, a tattoo designed by the artist behind the ambigrams that are central to the plot of “Angels and Demons” and backstage passes to a Boyz II Men concert? Each of those experiences was offered by Drexel University as part of a fundraising effort […]
Two Drexel students launched their new lifestyle app, goPuff, on the Android and the iOS platforms Oct. 16. This app was created by co-founder junior business majors Rafael Illishayev and Yakir Gola for their delivery company, a retail and wholesale company that specializes in hookahs and hookah supplies. The app also includes categories such as […]
Both the Drexel men and women’s squash teams fell to Princeton University this past week, more than a full week removed from their previous appearance on the court. After the long hiatus, the teams failed to capitalize on the opportunity to begin their first winning streak of the season. Each team was coming off a […]
Which Thanksgiving dinner staple is your favorite? Are you more of a main course or a dessert kind of person? Either way, it doesn’t matter, because Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks, spending time with family, and reveling in gluttony. Nobody said that the last part was made for wrestlers, though. When the Drexel […]
It always warms my heart when a beloved book is faithfully adapted into a movie. In 2010, adaptations of both “Shutter Island” and “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1” turned great pieces of literature into crowd-pleasing cinema without annoying hardcore fans of the original subject material. A more recent example would be Gary […]
Twenty One Pilots released their self-titled debut album in December 2009. Since then, the band has become a duo and has released two albums, “Regional at Best” in 2011 and “Vessel” in January 2013. Vessel was their first album that was released on a record label. They performed their first headline show Nov. 26 in […]

What brought you to Drexel? Natisha Chen: I transferred to Drexel back in 2011 from Temple University. […]
Hopes were high as the Drexel men’s soccer team took the field in the first round of the NCAA College Cup. The Blue and Gold stood between the lines Nov. 21 just after the clock struck 6 p.m. and stood face to face with the Monarchs of Old Dominion University. On this night, the Dragons […]
It was a close game, but the Philadelphia Eagles’ 24-21 victory Dec. 1 against the Arizona Cardinals was by far their most impressive performance of the season. The Cardinals arrived at Lincoln Financial Field red hot on the back of a four-game winning streak, with their latest victory a 40-11 win against a solid Indianapolis […]
University Chorus, Chamber Singers and Concert Band perform The University Chorus will perform Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms” for chorus, keyboard, harp and percussion, along with a selection of motets, spirituals and music of the Renaissance period. Concert selections include “Chichester Psalms” and “O Magnum Mysterium.” The Drexel Concert Band will perform American classics that will […]
On Nov. 27, the Philadelphia 76ers lost 105-94 to the Orlando Magic in a classic “someone HAS to win” game between two horrible teams. Spencer Hawes missed this game because of left-knee soreness, and as it turns out, Metropolis without Superman is not a fun place to be. The Sixers shot 7-22 from downtown in […]
Following a brief two-game road trip through Florida in which the Philadelphia Flyers fell in games against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning, the Orange and Black were quick to right the ship and have gone 3-1 in their last four games. Upon returning home from their tour of Florida, the Flyers were faced […]
