Elizabeth Kugler ’20 is a female coxswain on the men’s crew team. We sat down to talk with her on her experience.
There’s an entire world off of this campus (believe me, I’m a local.) This week’s off-campus excursion took me to Indraloka Animal Sanctuary’s Annual ThanksLiving Event. Yes, ThanksLiving, not to be confused with Thanksgiving.
ThankLiving is a heart-warming day at the sanctuary, where the resident turkeys are honored and celebrated. These turkeys were paraded to their own table where they enjoyed a meal of spinach salad, fruit, seeds, watermelon and pumpkins. Indraloka’s ThanksLiving event showcases a more compassionate take on the typical Thanksgiving meal.
The turkeys weren’t the only ones with full bellies, as Parlor City Vegan catered the sold-out event. Guests were able to eat delicious vegan food while listening to live music and taking part in raffles and a silent auction to benefit the sanctuary’s mission
ThanksLiving was hosted by Olympians Rebecca Soni and Malachi David, news anchor, Paola Giangiacomo, WBRE Eyewitness News Anchor, Mark Hiller and author, Eric Lindstrom.
This year’s event had a special twist, as it was held on Indraloka’s new and more accessible property in Dalton. This property will help Indraloka continue to compassion for animals and humans alike. The main sanctuary barn will have classrooms for children, yoga studios, music rooms, art rooms and more.
We’ve all eaten at the Fresh Food Co. on the third of the Denaples Center, but chances are you’ve just lovingly dubbed it “Third.”
Saturday brunches, upscale Wednesdays and the ever-rare, yet coveted, ice cream sandwich station are three of the many reasons why it’s captured your heart as a Scranton hallmark.
However, the food doesn’t just magically appear every time you swipe your Royal. It takes a team of dedicated cooks and staff to bring Third to life.
Kelena Gonzalez, the mastermind behind the Southwest Vegetarian station, gave a behind-the-scenes look into our beloved third-floor.
Q: What’s your all-time favorite dish to make?
A: I love making southwest sweet potatoes with a black bean corn salsa. It’s so colorful and good for you, and the kids always love it.
Q: When are you the busiest?
A: There’s really not a day that’s busier than another, but it is always, always crowded at noon.
Q: What’s one thing about dining services that students might not know?
A: Everything is always fresh. A lot of places say that, but we really mean it. I feel like the students might know that already.
Q: How do you prepare for your noon rushes?
A: I just make sure I have all of my products ready to go. I make sure I have enough plates counted too.
Q: What’s the relationship like between the cooks and staff?
A: We’re really all a big family. We’re all friends, and that’s why we work so well together.
In today’s political climate, it is more important than ever to get to the polls to express your voice. In the last midterms, only 42 percent of registered Americans voted, which was the lowest voter turnout since 1978. The voter turnout for college-aged individuals was even lower, with only 20 percent of millennials voting. It’s important to raise these numbers this election season, as your vote on Nov. 6 matters. Government elected officials have a part in every aspect of our lives from healthcare to education to human rights and everything in between. By voting, you get to personally have a say in how you think America can do better for its citizens.
To get any excuses out of the way, here’s a definitive list of what to do to get to the polls with confidence.
