Most students at Providence College think of Phillips Memorial as the only library in the neighborhood; sadly, in a few weeks, they could be right. However, for now, the Smith Hill library sits on Candace Street, tucked between Chalkstone Avenue and Orms Street, in the heart of Smith Hill.

PC contributes to African libraries

Papers, projects, and finals-it’s getting to be that time of year. It seems that the end of the semester is the busiest time for both students and professors.

A filmmaker’s story

I walked Thayer Street last week. Thayer Street on an April night. Now you expect a description -the people, the venues, the breeze that makes you regret having worn shorts. I cannot remember enough to write anything but a standard description with imaginary nuances.

Enemy of the state

The Secret Service really knows how to work those sunglasses. Whether its members are inside, outside, or just chasing down the bad guys-those sunglasses are always put to good use.

Akrobatik brings his tricks to PC

Imagine a hip-hop show at Providence College. As a feature writer for The Cowl with hip-hop pouring through my veins, it has been a common and consistent struggle promoting my beloved music that I love upon deaf ears.
