Another homecoming rolls around, and with it another crowning of royalty. You sit in the crowd of the commons, and, as the same couple that was crowned last year finds their heads ornamented once again, you survey the commons while your mind wanders. Your eyes eventually land on a friend sitting next...

During the summer of my freshman year, I ran conditioning for the upcoming cross country season. Some of my friends were running and I decided to run with them. I was not good at the sport and didn't want to continue, but the people and coach Elliott persuaded me to keep going in the sport. As I reflect...

When I came to the United States as an exchange student, I thought I knew everything about American schools. I imagined it would be somewhere between Mean Girls and The Breakfast Club, but I hoped it would be similar to my school in Hungary. I could not have been more wrong. Because let’s be honest,...

A one-time meeting is supposed to tell you everything about someone. Things like first dates, job interviews, college applications, and acting auditions all depend on a one-time meeting. But, I think first impressions are completely bogus. Especially in today’s quick-moving world, first impressions...

The American dollar bill needs a revival, but this time with style. It's time to make the switch to polymer banknotes. For far too long, Americans have been burdened by crumpled, torn bills that have no colour and are counterfeited often. Polymer bills are perennially better than their cotton and linen...

Technology can be a nightmare, but it has also positively impacted education through applications like eBackpack and Google Drive. However, certain programs hinder a student's ability learn due to a lack of capabilities and a less than a user-friendly program. A prime example of such a program is Go...

Many have called to the stars trying to find other life in the universe, but the call has been unanswered. We know that life on earth is unique, intelligent life even moreso. Humanity has only existing for a blink of the eye in the cosmos, and its existence is not guaranteed. At any moment something...

Language should beest stagnant, nev'r evolving. Anything otherwise is best pondered as the death of the language itself. The colonization of language hath gone too far; ‘tis time we reconcile with our mother tongue ere it's too late. This -- to anyone not still stuck in the Elizabethan era -- sound...

Ask anyone with an athletic background, and they'll tell you that cheerleading isn't a sport. To some extent, they're right. Standing on the sidelines yelling “Go team!” doesn't require that much skill. However, we, the cheerleaders of Skutt Catholic, are tired of being labeled as just a team th...

I've heard the word ‘genius’ used to describe students with straight A’s or 36’s on the ACT. However, I've also heard it attributed to Picasso and Mozart. Who’s to say what intellect truly is? In its most basic definition, intelligence is defined as “the ability to acquire and apply knowle...
