In God We Trust

Kate7586@aol.com Recently a national debate over evolution has drawn attention in national and local news. As a Catholic, I recognize the scientific evidence in support of the evolution theory and have never considered Darwin’s work to be in contradiction with…

Is Mr. McGrath serious?

jmcbob83@aol.com After reading Mr. McGrath’s article, “Swimming, surfing, and globalism”, I could not sit back and let this monstrosity go into The Cowl unscathed. Mr. McGrath states, “…but what I am saying is that unless we really work for our…

Desperate times, substitute measures

As I gave myself the final once-over in my rearview mirror, I wondered again why I was here. I wasn’t asking why was I here as in here on planet Earth-I wasn’t having an existential crisis or anything like that-but rather why was I here at my alma mater, Chestnut Heights Public High School.

History speaks to us in silence

“Arbeit Macht Frei,” it says, above the gates leading into the concentration camp at Auschwitz, Poland. It is a German phrase meaning “Work makes you free.” Through history’s looking glass, we see the painful irony of that statement: most of the people who were marched through these gates never made it out alive.

Snow day brings out the best in PC students

New England has a reputation for being a cold and impersonal place. Many Providence College students who are new to the area have complained about the pace of life and the aloof nature of New Englanders. I, as a native New Englander, have to disagree.
