Strong Student Support for Enhancing the Underground in Pyle

It is halfway through the semester, and Ashley has an exam in one of her classes. Practice ended at 6:30 and she immediately went to her room to study. It has taken her hours, but she finally feels comfortable with the material. She glances at the time as her stomach growls: 9:45 pm. The T.O.P. is closed and so is Sandella’s. She is famished, yet the only solution is to go to a fast-food restaurant and risk losing her good parking spot. Ashley is just one student out of many…

The Five Most Underrated Aspects of Wilmington College

As students who attend a small college, it is easy to forget all the good qualities we fell in love with in the beginning. 5.) The Beauty of the Campus Wilmington maintains a beautiful campus that we sometimes take for granted. We don’t notice the grass isn’t cut until it scratches our ankles as we’re taking a shortcut to class. Professor Allen Beatty reminds everyone what a beautiful campus we have by continually posting pictures on the app (Thanks Allen for making sure we all appreciate the beauty). As sophomore,…

Avenue Q Presents a Fine, Fine Line

It was recently announced that the Wilmington College Theater Department will be presenting Avenue Q as their Fall musical. The show dates are November 16, 17, and 18; but this is not a typical musical comedy. Firstly, puppets are incorporated into the musical, so  puppets and humans both interact on stage. This presents the actors with a difficult challenge: how do they act, sing, and dance, all while controlling and emotionalizing a puppet? Theater Director Wynn Alexander remarked, “the focus is on the puppets, not the actor. That will be…

It’s Not Always Easy to Be a Commuter

Everyone knows a commuter student. You see them going to classes, reading at the library, maybe eating lunch at the Top. But you never see them walk into their dorm at the end of the day. Instead they have a pretty comfy bed at home, with their parents fixing food for them, and some much-needed animal interaction with their pets. Speaking with Kiona France, she told me that it has been difficult to connect with other students on campus. She would much rather have the other students come to her,…
