Conversations Over Coffee

September 8, 2011

A short drive, bike ride, roller blade trip or walk down Fairbanks Ave. will bring you to Austin’s Coffee, a funky, hole-in-the- wall coffee joint with lots of personality. A different atmosphere from the sophistication of Park Ave. and the hanging moss of the lakeside Rollins campus, Austin’s offers more than meets the eye. The […]

Double-Header Shutout for Tars

September 8, 2011

The Rollins Tars men’s and women’s soccer teams had incredible beginnings to their seasons. No one expected less from either team. There were definitely high expectations for the men’s team that earned second place in last year’s final – their game began at 5 p.m. and only 17 minutes later Daniel Salazar ‘13 scored the […]

“Green” is Good

September 8, 2011

History is no stranger to discrimination. Minorities all over the world have been dis­criminated against, from reli­gious minorities, to ethnic mi­norities to the minority of men who prefer a delicious mango­tini.

I Want My Music Videos Back!

September 8, 2011

The other day as I was get­ting ready for school, I turned on the television to catch the last few minutes of MTV’s morning music video block, AMTV. I saw “Yonkers,” an interestingly sa­distic video featuring the rapper Tyler, The Creator aggressively rhyming over a pulsing beat while eating a cockroach. It was different from […]

The Birth of Hip-Pop

September 8, 2011

The lights are dimmed and sweat is dripping down my shirt. Amongst a large crowd, the girl brushing herself against me appears to be cute enough. Our hips stop moving for only a moment. I’m hoping for a num­ber, maybe even a short kiss, one step at a time. I hear the speakers start to […]

Ten years ago, a tragedy oc­curred that would forever change the history of the United States of America. On Sept. 11, 2001, the World Trade Center was destroyed by a terrorist at­tack. This event, as horrible as it was, created a newfound sense of unity throughout the United States. Everyone remembers where he or she […]

September 8, 2011

Faces of Rollins examines different departments of the college that the average student does not know about, and the people who work in those departments.
