From Charlie Dick’ to Warwick

Get out those textbooks, number two pencils, and giant urns of coffee, kiddos, for ’tis the season.

Right now there is a lot of uneasiness in Friartown. After opening up the season with an unimpressive loss to Northeastern, the Friars convincingly won three straight.

Here’s to Your Health: Crushing the Cravings

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for all week: you’re up early, reveling in the last-day-of-class excitement. You pick up The Cowl and allot yourself fifteen minutes of freedom from finals frenzy to sit down, skim the paper, and sip your coff-STOP! Okay, so maybe it doesn’t warrant such a panic stricken response, but let’s face it-the amount of caffeine many college students will consume to carry them through the imminent “Finals Week” is mind-boggling.
