Students Operate Collegiate Farmers’ Market

This past week, I was able to catch up with some of the agriculture students who are hosting a weekly Farmers’ Market, where they are selling the freshest organic produce Wilmington College has to offer! Managed by Molly Scroggy, a veteran of the college farm, she said, “this is an amazing opportunity to get out and support a local community cause by buying fresh, healthy, and organic produce”. This farmers’ market is run by the Agriculture 350 class and what they sell comes directly from the previous Horticulture classes, which is pretty…

Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Campus events bring people who would normally not interact with one another together. Without this one, minor unification piece, a majority of students would not get involved on campus.

Not only did Nike take a risk, but they refueled a conversation that was left unfinished in 2016 when Kapernick decided to kneel during the National Anthem as a way to protest racial injustice in America. When Kapernick had the idea to use his platform…

It’s a Mad World

On August 29, Nicolin Haines had an art gallery opening in the Harcum Art Gallery at Wilmington College to display his collection of pieces titled “Madnormality.” Haines has been making art in all forms since 2010, but it was not until his sophomore year of college that he realized clay was his calling. In Haines’ artist statement he says, “The title, ‘Madnormality’, suggests a proliferation of mutations on an extreme or wild capacity. Through an exploration of construction techniques, I have found new (repetitive) forms upon which to experiment in…

Don’t Be Afraid to Get Dirty

On your way to eat at the T.O.P. over the next couple of weeks, you will probably run into some familiar faces tabling in the Pyle Lobby. Of those familiar faces, you are sure to see the students involved in the Student Alumni Association (SAA) marketing a very familiar event for many students during Homecoming Week – the annual “Mud Volleyball Tournament.” The Mud Volleyball Tournament hosted by SAA was started on campus with the intentions of creating an event that was almost entirely student-driven during Homecoming festivities, as well…
