Raise your hand if you have ever sat at home and thought to yourself ‘You know what would improve my learning experience? Meaningless, but fun, detours from the curriculum to subjects just barely related. That will definitely benefit my knowledge of the actual class-related material.’ Never? Huh,...

During the school day, I attended the Breaking Down the Walls program. At first, I was confused on what the program was, but as soon as I got there and the speaker started presenting I realized it was like a peer helping assembly that the school paid for. Now it seems like I’m trashing it, but it was...

As seniors with fourth period off, we leave school every day after third period through the front entrance of the school.

From freshman to junior year, the school exclusively offers what it labels as the advanced history courses in the form of year-long classes that alternate with their respective advanced English course. This structure is designed with the hopes to improve AP test scores, as it would allow both courses...

Every Tuesday and Thursday students in PE have to complete a run of the PE staff’s choice. You do warm-ups, you go out and run, and then it's time to go change before you have to go to your next period. But now, as curriculum is changing and technology is evolving, so are PE procedures. On the M...

I‘ve spent too much money on DoorDash, GrubHub, Postmates and UberEats. This I know to be true. Has a majority of that money been spent between the hours of 7:40 a.m. and 2:30 p.m? No comment. I can’t help myself! Getting DoorDash is like when you were in elementary school and you came back from...

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...
