The air is crisp, the leaves crunch under your steps, and the energy of the new fall season is effervescent. Walking along our aged and beautiful campus, it is difficult to understand why there is any trash at all scattered across the ground. Aluminum takes 80-100 years to decompose, plastic over 450 years...

As a student of the class of 2020 set to graduate in 2019 instead, reflecting on my experiences has left me with the knowledge that graduating early isn’t for everyone. There really isn’t any point to graduate early if you don’t have a goal you want to obtain at an earlier date. You mus...

I was deciding my classes for my junior year and like a lot of other juniors, I entered the school year with infamously high expectations. This is the year where my grades matter the most if I plan on attending college. With this preconceived notion floating in my brain, I signed up for pre-calculus...

The other day as we were driving home, my mother and I began a very interesting discussion. She had just picked me up from school and we were going to stop by the gas station near our home that sold lottery tickets; we were going to try our luck. “The winning ticket is just sitting there waiting...

Everyone on the Roseville High School campus has heard of Lake Roseville at least once or twice during the past couple of years. If you haven’t already then you’ll see the so called “lake” yourself this rainy season. But why is it still a thing to this day and why has nothing changed? Du...

To lighten the after school traffic, cars in the Senior Lot had fallen into the pattern of turning what is normally one lane of outgoing traffic into two, overtaking the lane usually used to enter. However, school staff have recently begun monitoring the lot after school to keep cars that are exiting...

The dread that courses through a student when asked about their plans as far as their college career is unlike most feelings of fear. College applications, for most, determine one’s future on a level that kids our age should not be subjected to; to make such a difficult, heavy and important decision...

Everyone is familiar with that loud, unapologetic tone that rings in the ears of students once it is time to get to class. The bell schedule means a lot of things to each individual - the heart-stopping and fear-inducing signal to the start of a class in which you have to present in front of everyone;...

Funny caveat: I almost didn’t come to RHS. I’d heard the rumours - Roseville High School, the school that must not be named. There were no specifics, just a general assumption that if I went to a school like Woodcreek, I’d receive a better high school experience and education guaranteed. And...

When I first received my beloved Wade, I was absolutely smitten. He was a “luxury” car, and by this I mean he was a luxury car from 2001. His green and silver tinted body was nothing short of luxurious, regardless of the little knicks and cuts adorning his fender. He had withstood 94,000 miles without...

A few weeks ago, students were asked to take the Equal Opportunity Schools survey in order to encourage more students to enroll in AP classes. I took this survey for the third time in my high school career. I took this survey -- which asked if I had plans to take AP courses -- while sitting in my...

Homecoming is, in many ways, the quintessential teenage experience, according to most of the teen dramas I’ve seen. The pre-dance photo-ops, the chance to dress up in fancy clothes, and the anticipation of the stifling hot air in the sticky gymnasium all come together to create an atmosphere of...
