As I delve into the nightmare that is college applications, I come to an interesting realization: I don’t take many, if any, electives. In fact, this year, I only have two: journalism and journalism. This no doubt stems from the “AP push” that haunts students. Eye of the Tiger reporter Mikayla...

I believe that, just like an other student, my Monday morning routine consists of a ritual that is ingrained into my muscles to the point that I could do it while half-asleep -- which is an event that occurs surprisingly frequently. I ignore my alarm and later roll sluggishly out of bed, miraculously...

As a sophomore, I will soon leave the realm where a million students all rank at number one with a 4.0 GPA – and though I know it is above a first world problem, it pains me to think I might be one of those students watching my class rank slipping precariously down the class rank ladder to obscurity. But,...

No teacher, from my experience at RHS, lived up to the ideal educator that we students create from our own capricious expectations. That’s fair. But teachers, through their grading practices, fail to honor some basic principles of the student-teacher relationship, including the first of the all important...

Are Roseville High School awards meant for everyone? I would assume not, being that they are for “above and beyond service to the school,” according to assistant principal Matt Pipitone. These awards aren’t the burnt-out ROAR bucks that you can maybe enter for a five dollar gift card (but that...

As a sophomore on the JV football team, getting to use the game field to practice is something that rarely happens, so it’s seen as a privilege.

I, being a basic teenager, showed up to school one day with a venti strawberry acai refresher from Starbucks. After drinking a venti Starbucks, it is human nature to have to pee. At this point, during ROAR, I walked up to my teacher to ask him if I could use the restroom as I had done at this same...

A couple months into the summer of my senior year, I received an email reminding me to schedule an appointment for my senior pictures from Bill Smith Photography. School had not started yet, it hadn’t hit me until that moment that it was actually senior year. I was one year away from graduating –...

Students enrolled in Roseville Joint Union High School district are required to take two semesters of PE in order to graduate – regardless of participation in school sports. And while the state does maintain a requirement regarding how much PE a high school student must take in order to graduate, there...
