Dear Editor, A residence hall: For many students at Drexel it’s a home away from home, as well as their first time living on their own. Many freshmen walk into their hall on the first day with high expectations but are quickly disappointed. Missing doors, broken windows and cockroaches have been reported in many halls. [...]

Dear Editor, President Obama has said that addressing climate change is an “obligation” we cannot ignore. Let’s hope that as he prepares to begin a second term in office, he is ready to fulfill that obligation by taking real action to reduce climate change. Changing our communities to be more impregnable when it comes to [...]
In the year 2000, we recall that George W. Bush won the presidential election in the Electoral College, although Al Gore had a majority of the popular vote. (I’m ignoring any issues about the counting of the votes.) This stimulated some discussion of the possibility that the Electoral College might be eliminated by constitutional amendment [...]
Dear Editor, Connect. What a great word! Everything we do is based on connectivity. The decisions of where we go to school, live, eat, shop, work and vacation are all based on connectivity. The economic growth of our country is driven by connectivity. Look at the regions that are thriving and growing, and you [...]
Dear Editor, Everyone among the student body has noticed the recent rash of construction and incoming students. Not to mention everyone has been complaining about it. Would you guess that the two are related more closely than one might think? The construction projects going on right now are capital intensive, like any other project, [...]
Dear Editor, Dragon Dollars, Dining Dollars and meal swipes are all terms that average students at Drexel are familiar with. Rationing meals and dining dollars is the hassle of a freshman student attempting to eat three square meals a day. Between spending Dining Dollars at Northside Dining Terrace on groceries and using them on [...]
Dear Editor, We, the student body of Drexel University, have suffered too long under the weight of massive tuition on our shoulders. Something needs to be done. The amount of debt we incur at Drexel over our four plus years here is estimated to be three times that of students at other schools. Is [...]
Dear Editor, Over the past year that I have been at Drexel, it has become evident to me and other freshmen that Drexel does not provide good quality food options for its students and faculty. Looking into the food options, I realized that there are not a lot of options to choose from. As [...]
Dear Drexel, “Look to your left and look to your right,” I was told during my freshman orientation at Drexel’s engineering school. “Only one of you will graduate,” Dominic Di Bucci, an alumnus here at Drexel University, said. Drexel has always had a low graduation rate, but is it fair to students? In more [...]
Dear Editor, The University has grown exponentially in recent years with the “Drexel Renaissance.” There are many concerns surrounding the rapid increase in student enrollment and physical infrastructure keeping up with demand. The influx of new students has put constraints on many aspects of student housing. Dorms are frequently beyond capacity, yet there have [...]
Dear Editor, The Feb. 3 edition of The Triangle contained two articles, one lamenting the decline in term-paper assignments and the consequent deficit in student intellectual skills, and the other noting the rise in Internet-abetted plagiarism. May I submit that these two issues are not unrelated? I have come to look first in the [...]
The Occupy Wall Street movement is now almost four months old. It began with the spontaneous occupation of Zuccotti Park, a private enclave adjacent to New York’s Financial District, and has since mushroomed across the country. Few, if any, major cities have lacked an occupation. Most have camped in public parks or, as in Philadelphia, [...]
Dear Editor, Being at a university in the city provides students many opportunities. One of those is the ability to volunteer and make a difference in your community. The Community Alumni Network at Drexel University (CAN DU), a nationally recognized outreach program of the Drexel University Alumni Association, is leading a community service project at [...]
Greetings from the President, To the returning members of our Drexel community, and to the new members who have joined us, I extend my best wishes for the upcoming academic year. Our students, faculty and professional staff are the lifeblood of the University, and the reason for our great success. Each year, our campuses are [...]
Dear Editor, Due to generous funding provided by the Student Activity Fee Allocation Committee, The DAC Pack is happy to announce that three large-scale concerts will take place this upcoming school year on Drexel University’s campus! The Dragon Concert Series Committee, under the direction of Student Life, has been created to assist with planning and [...]
Dear Editor, If you are one of the many students graduating this month, congratulations to you and welcome to the Alumni Association. We hope to see you involved with our Young Alumni Association and at various other alumni events no matter where you locate in the future. If you are still a student though, there [...]
Dear Editor, If you are reading this, you are most likely a current Drexel student or a Drexel employee. If you think that the Drexel University Alumni Association is very distant to you, think again. You probably interact with the University’s alumni more than you realize. For example, did you know that 18 percent [...]
Dear Editor, At first glance of the ‘Officer damages Westphal poster’ article on The Triangle’s front page, I was appalled by the imagery depicted in the Polish cartoon. From my interpretation of the poster, it appears to me that an adult, perhaps a teacher, is educating younger children in a jubilant manner that African Americans [...]
The good news of the week is that you can buy a discounted Manny Ramirez t-shirt for as little as $10. I haven’t checked out the Barry Bonds memorabilia market lately. Every time baseball tries to climb out of the slough of despond that is the Steroid Era, there’s Barry and Manny to drag it [...]
I am writing to you about the importance and pressures of kids attending college. In today’s society, kids are more pressured by more outside influences than they were before. A couple years ago, kids were not told they that had to go to college and didn’t have to worry about being able to find a [...]
