LIJO: Late JRP provided valuable experience

February 22, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY ANILA LIJO [email protected] Contrary to most students’ reaction after hearing the recent death of the Junior Research Project, I was pretty upset. As much as most juniors despised the JRP, some of us did like working on it. By no means am I an overly excited student who enjoys regular work at school, but I did appreciate the process and what we got out of i...

FURDEK: Replace after-school stagnation with involvement

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY MADDY FURDEK [email protected] Whenever I find myself on campus after school between 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., I often will see students hanging out on campus feeling like they don’t have anything to do. While I understand that there are times students can’t get a ride home right away and need to wait, the problem goes beyond the average one-time studen...

MULLIGAN: Insolent weight room use distasteful

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY JOHNNY MULLIGAN [email protected] New facilities on campus are used as much as the weight room. At some point, almost all athletes spend time in the weight room. Being on the football team and previously on the wrestling team, I have spent a large amount of time in that room. The weight room is treated well by students who are on a sports team because th...

EARL: Find other avenues to promote completion of Financial Literacy

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY EMILY EARL [email protected] As seniors already know from either the emails, phone calls or classroom visits made by admin, we are the first class required to complete the Personal Finance course. And we also know that if we do not complete the course we will lose the “privilege” of Senior Ball. The Personal Finance course was introduced last spring. At that...

REA: Clearing up the misconceptions about senioritis

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY MONIQUE REA [email protected] High school students could basically be separated into two groups: those who do their work and those who have fallen down the path of a slacker. However, as a senior, I and many others in my class have another quite valid excuse for our lack of motivation: senioritis. So we get it, seniors get senioritis. But why is it that freshm...

BARBER: Impatience only hinders IM2 development

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY RACHEL BARBER [email protected] When an average of 21 percent of students fail three sections of Integrated Math 2, there is an obvious need for change. IM2 students found the newly implemented curriculum difficult to adapt to, contributing to the high fail rates seen across IM2 classes. Students enrolled in the spring term of IM2 seemed to pick up this mentality r...

FURDEK: Scholarship specifics too personal for public display

February 1, 2016

Filed under Opinion

BY MADDY FURDEK [email protected] As the spring semester begins and seniors begin to receive the large, colorful vanilla folders in their mailboxes containing an acceptance letter to the university of their dreams, it’s hard to contain the excitement. Many students take the opportunity to share their news on social media so the world can partake in celebrat...

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ASHLEY BERTHOLF AND NILAB HABIB [email protected] To be totally honest, our class as a whole is pretty upset with everything surrounding the situation regarding Advanced Placement credits in the AP Government and Economics block. Starting this school year, the seniors that opted into taking AP Government and AP Economics were under the impression we would receive...

EYE OF THE TIGER’S VIEW: Court changes risk female majority

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

Changes to the court selection process meant to promote equal representation of the student population could potentially be the start down a slippery slope toward a female-dominated court system. One of the most prominent revisions to the existing dance court system includes a discontinuation of the five boys and five girls ratio. A minimum of two girls and boys will have...

Filed under Opinion

BY TOMMY MORIN [email protected] With the fall term coming to an end, students are scrambling to get their grades together, trying to get that little bump to boost up a letter grade. Whether it be turning in late work or working on extra credit projects, everyone is grinding out their last few assignments. In different classes however, some teachers have differe...

DOOLITTLE: Holiday generosity popular for self gain

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ALEXX DOOLITTLE [email protected] Although good deeds are often done by good people, I’m starting to notice that kind hearts and generosity are more of trends and tedious obligations to younger generations than a social responsibility. Something I recently learned in my psychology class and seeing it in action around the holiday season incites my attem...
