This money, among other monetary donations, is used in determining how much money is apportioned to each campus club or organization. The SGA board has a steady, strenuous process they follow when it comes to campus budgeting, which usually…

For others though, this brave act of defiance is a courageous stand in the push…

One Moment in Time Becomes One Movement in History

On Oct. 6, 2018, the Women’s March organized an event with the hashtag “Cancel Kavanaugh.” This march was formed on the premise surrounding the sexual assault allegations towards Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Wilmington College differentiates from many other colleges and universities in the area in the aspect of unification. At Wilmington, students know the names of the people they pass on the sidewalk; to them that person is another friendly face.…
