High school students will sit in anticipation of a college acceptance letter for weeks, sometimes months, and the day it arrives they grin ear to ear telling everyone they know. They worked hard for years to be accepted into a good school and are eager to start the rest of their lives. What most students...

College applicants spend hours and hours writing one essay after another. The key to college admission, however, is not only GPA and ACT/SAT scores, but also community involvement. Money.usnews.com describes that community service is “ranked number four in importance of factors considered for admission -...

The crystal-covered, LED-filled ball’s drop in Times Square, NY will ring in 2017 before we know it. Many of us have already purchased confetti poppers, whistles and gaudy New Years' themed glasses to anger elderly neighbors with when the clock strikes midnight. Few, however, have taken time to caref...

Chancelor Bennett, better known by his stage name and musical moniker Chance The Rapper is well known for his unique and charmingly positive approach to hip-hop, but he is perhaps known even more for his commercial success without the assistance of a record label. His most recent album Coloring Book...

I still have memories of waking up and feeling ill on a school day. I would open my eyes, perhaps start to get ready. But it would not take long for me to knock on my mom’s bedroom door and feebly tell her how I felt. She would place a thermometer into my mouth, and I secretly crossed my fingers a...

With the winter weather featuring the constant freezing cold temperatures, safety is a major concern. Both on the roads and in your cars, treacherous conditions exist for Wisconsin drivers.

This school year has been an interesting one so far. A freshman student set a soap dispenser on fire, giving the rest of the upperclassmen a fantastic opinion of the ninth graders. A light-hearted video was made and showed around the school, only to get deleted because of the technically illegal use ...

I registered to vote on Nov. 8 promptly at 7 a.m. in order to have time before the bell rang at school. The black marker floated between candidates printed professionally in black ink on white paper. I voted on Nov. 8 with a piece of paper resembling the dreaded Scantron students receive for tests. I...

It was hard to know what to expect going into high school. I heard plenty of different things from different people, and all of them seemed to contradict each other. Some would say that high school really was not all that stressful, that I did not need to worry myself. On the other hand, I would hear...

This past week I decided to venture to the "Moments" icon on Twitter and noticed a headline that was interesting, "How Women Are Written in Hollywood" by @femscriptintros. I perused through the tweets and had one question: How are men written in Hollywood? And then came another one: Is this supposed to be ...

I spent Sunday morning on Youtube, watching Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” make every possible joke he could about the 2016 presidential race. I do not usually watch Youtube videos all morning, but I enjoyed the comedic side to politics after viewing the Republican debate on Saturday.  Late nig...
