But lately (perhaps over the last 15 years or so), they have come to full fruition and they seem to be getting made...

Words have power. This was probably the biggest lesson I learned during this past week (Feb. 10-14th) when I helped lead the Gay-Straight-Trans* Alliance (GSTA) in No Name Calling Week, one of the largest national anti-bullying initiatives across the country. It’s a cause I feel strongly about because...

A survey was sent out to two English classes in order to look at how much time students are actually spending on their iPad not only doing school work, but also gaming at school and at home.

Manitou Springs High School, although somewhat small, can still make something big; a year. Expectations are something that parents know all too well. However when the parents aren't available when their child is at school, the expectations are left upon not only the teachers, but the students themselves. ...

Transitioning from middle school to high school is a pretty big deal. To some people it's hard been and to others it's nothing. So many things change as you get into high school. There’s much more homework compared to middle school. Your grades matter a lot more, because a good GPA is needed to get...

The Hipster, a subculture of people that brandish new ways of life, styles, and free thinking. In so doing, their original idealism sets off a chain reaction of conformism in a wake of their non-conformity. As master hipster Abby Chapman puts it, "...their breaking away from society doesn't fit because...

You know that new policy that requires one to obtain a signature of admission to a given destination during advisee? The one that stipulates to get where one needs to go, one must have said signature from the location before one can even be granted access to go there. I just love that one. I appreciate...
