With summer only a couple months away, Drexel students are already restless to drop their books and escape to the beach for the weekend. After a long, cold winter, who could think of anything better than a weekend getaway? But with beach vacations comes something that plagues America: an obsession with having the “perfect” beach […]
In the past year, the United States has witnessed an abundance of heartbreaking tragedies. Two of these were the mass shootings at a Colorado movie theater and Sandy Hook Elementary School, resulting in the deaths of innocent children and adults who will remain in our hearts forever. These mass shootings once again brought the issue […]
For as long as any of us have been at Drexel, the bar for defining any of our sports teams’ seasons as a success has never been set too high. We’ve seldom had a “championship or bust” mentality because none of our teams had ever won a postseason title. Having a great regular-season record and […]
The Triangle has, in its history, covered a variety of controversial and unflattering articles. This is not unique to our paper — every news organization occasionally runs into stories that are grim, unfortunate or unflattering, and it is our job as journalists to share them. Since 1926, it’s been the newspaper of record at Drexel […]
Week 10 at Drexel brings with it final papers, presentations and finals looming just around the corner. Stress levels are shooting through the roof as students realize just how much work has piled up, and sometimes it seems like there just aren’t enough hours in the day. It’s a small comfort to know that most […]
The Drexel Community was hit hard with grief this week by the untimely passing of two of our peers: sophomore english major Thao Nguyen and senior business student Jakub Susul. It is one thing at The Triangle to have to write an obituary for a tenured Drexel professor who lived a long, fulfilled life, but […]
Remember the fire alarms from when you lived in the dorms? They would blare through the hallways of your residence hall at the most inconvenient time, all because someone accidentally burned their microwave popcorn in the communal kitchen. Well, we’ve all complained about being woken up at odd hours during the night due to our […]
It is apparent that our campus is undergoing several cosmetic changes. By now the development work we see is just another element of our campus, and we’ve all figured out how to maneuver our way through the construction to get to class on time. And with the recent announcement of the redesign of the area […]
During President Obama’s fourth State of the Union address Feb. 12, one of the improvements he announced for the education system was the College Scorecard website, which officially launched the following day. In his address he explained that the goal of the service was to provide soon-to-be college students and their parents with concise, pertinent […]
Members of The Triangle staff had the opportunity to attend “Are you prepared for the 21st Century Workplace? Insights from Successful Women CEOs,” a panel discussion hosted Feb. 6 by the LeBow College of Business in Behrakis Grand Hall. The event was interesting, and the guest speakers had plenty of knowledge to share with the […]
Facebook, Twitter and Reddit were swamped with updates and complaints Jan. 31 as students read through an email from Provost Mark Greenberg stating that he and his team are considering changing the Drexel academic calendar to a semester system. After decades of the quarter system, students seem to be resistant to the idea of adopting […]
The Drexel University Police Department will have one of its several yearly “active-shooter” training sessions Jan. 29 in New Jersey. Five new DUPD recruits will undergo a full day of classroom and scenario training to learn what to do if an active shooter opens fire on Drexel’s campus. Given the recent events at Sandy Hook […]
In the wake of the tragic Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, there has been an implicit expectation for principals, superintendents and college presidents across the country to issue statements that reassure their respective school communities of how safe they are. Drexel President John A. Fry did just that in a Jan. 15 […]
Drexel’s administration recently reversed a decision made in the fall that allowed freshmen to register for winter classes before most upperclassmen. Students strongly criticized the move when it was made, and University officials listened to their concerns. When representatives from The Triangle talked to N. John DiNardo from the Office of the Provost, he expressed […]
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, […]
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 […]
Our University helps flow $2.4 billion into the Pennsylvania economy, as detailed in President Fry’s report, “Drexel Growth and Solutions: Drexel’s Economic Impact, a 2012 Report.” The assessment, released Nov. 12, explains the impact of Drexel’s spending, capital investment, student and visitor spending, and alumni and community involvement on the economy of our state. The […]
Tons of media and other organizations have probably already lectured you recently on the importance of voting. Even more have probably tried to convince you to vote for a specific candidate or party. In our final editorial before Election Day, we will do neither of these things. As the journalistic voice of an institution of […]
With Drexel being one of the top 10 most expensive colleges in the country according to CampusGrotto.com, it would come as a surprise to no one that our students are getting into massive amounts of debt. In fact, according to the Institute for College Access & Success, 73 percent of Drexel students graduate with some […]
