College Board: Helping Students or Hungry for Money?

College Board: Helping Students or Hungry for Money?

Hayle Short, Managing Editor

Filed under Opinion, Perspectives, Showcase

I want to protest College Board. I want to, but I can't. I could, but realistically, if I want to go to college or have any sort of career, I can't. College Board, the organization that prepares and administers exams to students on an international scale, has a powerful grip on the testing industry. Which,...

Students deserve a break

Filed under Opinion, Perspectives

Adults get vacation days, so why don't kids? I think all students can agree that high school is a very stressful time. Being involved in clubs and sports, maintaining friendships, studying for tests, keeping grades up and much more can push students to their breaking point. A mental health day is just...

On Wednesday, October 18, news broke that United States President Donald Trump had called the family of a fallen U.S. soldier and told the widow that "he knew what he signed up for".

America, it’s time to talk

With the most recent addition to the growing list of mass shootings, I am very certain that my view on gun control has changed. Even with events such as Sandy Hook and the Orlando Night Club shootings, I still stood behind the façade that it was the person that committed the crime. Not the gun. But...

Similar to how 9/11 forced America to improve airport security, the Vegas Shooting has forced future outdoor concerts to make changes to their security plans in order to protect concert-goers. On October 1, 2017, the largest U.S. mass shooting in modern history took place at a concert in Las ...

Why we shouldn’t celebrate Columbus Day

Cilicia Anderson, Sports Editor

October 9, 2017


Filed under Across the Globe, Opinion, Perspectives

I'm sure a lot of people are familiar with the line, "In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue," because for some reason when teaching history in school, somebody decided to credit Italian explorer, navigator, and colonizer, Christopher Columbus, for discovering America. However,...

As of September 26, 2017, the royal decree announced live on television that the women of Saudi Arabia will now be allowed to drive. Although this law will not become implemented until next June, this is a very big step for women in Saudi Arabia. There are only a few things in Saudi Arabia that women...

According to the National Park Service, 500 million straws are used in America every day. That’s enough straws to circle the earth two and a half times. And the worst part? They can’t be recycled because they contain BPA. Sure, straws are entertaining for the 20 minutes that it takes to slurp down...

Yes, we still need feminism

Alanna Felton, A&E Editor

October 3, 2017


Filed under Opinion, Perspectives, Showcase

Women in America have come a long way since the days when girls were raised to be housewives and preform domestic chores, an even longer way since the suffragettes who had to campaign and protest for decades to gain the right to vote, and a much, much longer way since the days of tight corsets and arranged...
