The Dope Sheet

Half and Half. As fans look forward two weeks, the fan’s on the Providence College campus are preparing for a showdown. As the New England Patriots face off against the New York Giants in a Super Bowl game that is reminiscent of five years ago, students on campus are clearly choosing sides. What is going to make this matchup interesting for Providence College is the two distinct fan bases on campus. You guessed it; PC is pretty evenly split between the Patriots and the Giants, as those from Massachusetts and Rhode Island face off against those from the New York metropolitan area. This game is sure to be interesting, both on game day in McPhail’s and afterwards. Tom Brady is hailed to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and having already won three Super Bowls, many are looking for Brady to lead the Patriots to their fourth. The Giants, on the other hand, came from behind five years ago in a stunner and are looking to do so once again.

Who Is Your Ideal Commander-In-Chief

I suppose I must begin this piece

with a bit of embarrassing information.

I am quite possibly the least politically

savvy person on this campus. In fact,

I am slightly ashamed that my work

should be put on the same page as

the ever-so-politically-informed Ewen

Finser. I suppose he’s the greater

authority, and it may be even counter

intuitive to have me write on this

subject! That being said, what I do

know are interpersonal skills and what

it means to be a good leader. And, if

anything, I know that I seek these kinds

of skills, a certain sense of integrity,

and an unwavering dedication in my ideal president in 2012.

When in Rome

Most of us gain our knowledge of Italy and its people through what we see in the movies, what we watch on television, and what we eat. We all know about the gangsters from The Godfather, the guidos on Jersey Shore, and the food we consume on Federal Hill. But since I have just returned from a semester abroad in Rome, it is clear to me that the American view of Italians is quite different from who they truly are. They are some of the most passionate people in the world. And although I may be biased from a great experience abroad, I believe that there is much more to the Italian culture beyond what has been brought to us by the media.

Letters to the Editor

I would like to express my gratitude to all the wonderful students who came to Raymond Hall on Dec. 11, 2011 to sing Christmas carols to me. I was so touched by their thoughtfulness and kindness. It is students such as these that make me feel proud to be part of their lives at Providence College. I would also like to thank all of the students who expressed opinions of my new job function.

Faith Matters

Like millions of Americans, I’ve been watching the Republican debates with keen interest over the past few months. And now, some nine months before we go to the polls to elect the next president, I’ve made up my mind. I’m going to cast a ballot for Harrison Ford’s character from Air Force One. I know that many people haven’t yet rallied behind his candidacy. I realize that he’ll have obstacles to overcome (like being a fictitious figure from a 1997 movie), but he’s my man. He beats up hijackers, utters memorable quotes, and looks good doing it. Boom. Done.
