Providence Campus News

Madness: A March Tradition
by the Cowl
Jan 01, 2010
“Well, I guess it's that time of year again. And no, I'm not just talking about the exorbitant numbers of frayed, Abercrombie denim miniskirts you are seeing around campus. What I am talking about, however, is just as infectious as said denim miniskirts. Yes, it's March.”
This Is What Racism Looks Like
by the Cowl
Jan 01, 2010
“Black Studies was introduced as a discipline on this campus a number of years ago. As a Black Studies minor, I feel adequately armed with the concepts to battle racism and oppression; I just never thought I'd have to use those concepts to battle overt racism on our campus.”
Cotter Trying to Keep City Libraries Open
by the Cowl
Apr 01, 2009
“Tom Cotter '10, a Public and Community Service major, has taken action for a cause that he believes affects the Providence College community. He is working in favor of the Providence Community Library [PCL], which is trying to save the City of Providence library system.”
The Art of Giving Your Echo a Name
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
If you live on a deserted island, can your echo become your best friend? Do you have any other specimens to befriend or talk to other than the repetitive companion only available to be heard when you start the conversation? It would be a very one-sided relationship.”

Providence Cycle 3: Breathing Steam, Walking Punk
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
Ed left lunch that day wondering if Dick was right. There certainly had been some strange things going on, the dreams probably the worst of it. The rest of the day in the Providence Collegiate Station went on as it normally did: he had a virtual meeting with a professor who was currently abroad in the Martian colonies, finished his direct-download reading assignments, and went to bed.”

Office Blues
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
“The morning shuffles by,
tripping and falling back into night.
Not enough time for caffeinated lifeblood;
Not enough change either.
There's no correct way to sit on hard-backed
chairs not made for human bottoms.
Shifting side to side like an irritated
metronome, searching for a slice of
comfort these hours will never afford.”

Song for a Summer Storm
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
“The thunderheads came across the bay
Their distant growls chased the light away
As I cast my gaze at the empty sea
And the din was like a thousand magazines
Of a privateer lost to the deep
By the well-trained guns of the Queen's navy
And the silence that”

A Large Peacekeeper With Extra Cheese
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
The pizza man was late. Again. Which meant he wasn't getting a tip from her. Again. She supposed it was just another facet of their ongoing war of passive-aggression, something she should have learned to shrug off several months ago, considering how frequently she ordered a large pizza from Bill's Pizza Oven.”

Bright Star Bores Beyond Belief
by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
“As an English major, I expected to fall in love with Bright Star. The trailer made it look like a Pride and Prejudice-esque romantic period drama, full of sexual tension and covert romance. The trailer was misleading, to say the least.
Written and directed by Jane Campion (The Piano), Bright Star tells the story of the relationship between the 19th century poet John Keats (Ben Wishaw) and Fanny Brawne (Abby Cornish), the woman who inspired his later works.”

by the Cowl
Sep 30, 2009
“Catherine Northington
Character: Kirby
Favorite Move: The Brink (Down B)
Favorite Level: Zebes
Her Thoughts: I have a particular bias towards N64 games, and SSB is high up on my list. No matter how mellow you may be personality-wise, when it comes to SSB, you will most definitely be engulfed in the fierce competition of the game.”
