Wanted: Roommate

Liz Gremer, Co Art Director

February 28, 2020

Like many seniors going off to college next year, I’m on the lookout for some potential friends and roommates. I’m trying to get on top of things and meet people before I even get on campus. So, just like everyone else, I downloaded Facebook. As I created my account and joined my school’s “Class...

‘Sex Education’ season 2 impresses fans

Liz Gremer, Co Art Director

February 28, 2020

When I first tuned-in to “Sex Education” last year in its first season, I was shocked, but also incredibly intrigued. Sure, the show graphically depicts teenage relationships and intimacy, but the realness and complexity of the storylines kept my eyes glued to the screen. I finished the first season...

Not funny anymore

John Hepp, Opinion Editor

February 28, 2020

I’ve always loved “Saturday Night Live.” I grew up with Bill Hader, Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg and Maya Rudolph, just to name a few, making me laugh every Saturday night. That cast from eight to nine years ago was perfect, and created a golden age of SNL. Eventually, however, cast members move ...

The Snowflake Generation

Diane Makovic, Co Editor In Chief

February 28, 2020

We’ve all heard the stories from our grandparents and parents that start with “back in my day.” Typically these stories revolve around the idea that kids today are spoiled and don’t have to deal with the hardships the world had back then. And, as a whole, kids today are more sensitive than ever...

It’s more than just a word

February 28, 2020

Our position: More students should speak out when they hear other students using derogatory language at school. Throughout the school day, it’s not uncommon to hear people using words in a derogatory way. With startling frequency, the “R-word” is used as a joking insult and “gay” is use...

Church league column

Tommy Layden, Sports Co-Editor

February 28, 2020

Church League is just rec league basketball. It is just a bunch of guys in a gym who aren’t the most skilled or the best athletes shooting hoops. Church League is all of these things, but it is so much more than a rec league. It is a continuation in a sport for many who had no chance of playing in...

“The fault in our sex education”

Paige Darling, Assistant Multimedia Editor

February 28, 2020

Sex education is a controversial topic because its main subject is taboo. Sex has a never-ending stigma that prohibits us from having productive conversations about it. What the world, especially the U.S., is failing to understand is that without proper education about sex, it will result in some negative...

Little Women Review

Tommy Layden, Sports Co-Editor

February 27, 2020

‘Little Women’ is for the boys I walked into “Little Women” with a group of my cousins. Right away all of the boys and I were on the same page, “this movie looks like trash,” “this sucks,” and “why aren’t we at the new ‘Star Wars’ movie.” However, after struggling throu...

So long, 2010s

Dani Almase, Pulse Co-Editor

January 31, 2020

On Dec. 31, 2009, I was a 7-year-old girl waiting to count down the new year. I remember thinking how cool I felt to be staying up until midnight with my parents. I was still so young and I had my whole life ahead of me. As the clock struck 12, it was 2010. At that moment, 5,256,000 minutes flew by,...
