Crossing The Intersection Of Victim and Offender: Why Street Safety Is An Important Issue at Rowan If you jaywalk or cross illegally while on Rowan’s campus, you may think the worst thing that can happen is you will get lectured by a cop or get a fine...Think again.  One of the worst things that can happen to you is: you’re crossing illegally, the stoplight turns green in the opposite direction, and the driver of the car (that seemed to come out of no where) speeds up for the light and slams on the brakes once he sees you in the crosswalk, but it’s too late.  He hits you anyway.   And on the night of September 6th, on the intersection of Route 322 and Main Street, it happened to me.

It’s reassuring to hear, as a student who is on the verge of entering the “real world,” that someone in your chosen field has “made it.” Being a Radio-Television-Film major, I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment for those who have graduated and are beginning to, or have managed to find, comfort and safety within a new niche. I am sure it’s like that within all fields of study. Knowing that life outside of college is manageable and dare I say it, even fun sometimes amidst the adult-ness, is pretty cool. READ MORE

As Rowan University looks to welcome a larger incoming freshmen class, hundreds of upperclassmen are now placed on an on-campus housing waitlist. Rowan University currently lacks the housing buildings required to accommodate all of students who have applied to live on campus.

This waitlist has significantly increased from last year where the waitlist consisted of only 72 students. Hundreds of students and their friends and family are appalled by the lack of forewarning and planning by the University in making this decision. READ MORE

Tinder: the good, the bad, and the ugly

Tinder, the all-powerful hook-up app, has driven college students crazy. As a testament to its infamous success, I joined to see what everyone is raving about and why not meet some guys along the way? All Tinder consists of is rating people off their looks—it’s as simple as a yes or no. Meet the good, bad and ugly.   The Good Many guys on Tinder you may know, since Tinder uses location settings to find other users. So when scrolling through I found other members of Greek life, my co-workers, friends even family (as weird as that sounds).  Swipe to the right to like their picture and spark a conversation. This conversation usually goes well until it either gets awkward or someone initiates meeting up… which may not always be the best decision....
