By ISABELLA NUGENT Being a poor college student on the Main Line has always been a strange juxtaposition of wanting to buy microwavable Easy Mac, yet I’m surrounded by violin shops, pet boutiques and Ferrari dealerships.

Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore_3

Op-Ed By CHLOE LINDEMAN, Staff Writer Up until now, I’ve somehow enjoyed having Donald Trump as part of this election.
