As another school year winds down and comes to an end, I know that I, along with a majority of students, find it hard to keep focus in school and complete the work that needs to be finished in order to be done with school and enjoy summer. The end of every year is the same: I lose focus and …
As the world becomes more connected, secrets become harder to keep. However, my generation has a secret: FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
There is a lot of good in today’s youths. Often, adults don’t see it.
Meet Brian: A child not unlike most, he loves playing soccer and hanging out with his friends. Energetic, feisty and kind, he must have played soccer with me for five hours.
Generation Y. Millenials. iGeneration. Apathetic. All of these terms have been used to describe people my age. We have survived Y2K, observed the changes of our post-9/11 world, used technology in ways that older generations only dreamed of and have achieved the reputation of being political…
The U.S. government’s situation regarding affirmative action policy, which favors groups who are prone to discrimination in education and employment, is a predicament comparable to that of a student whose classmate is struggling on an exam. The student wants his classmate to perform well on …
For thousands of high school seniors, me included, high school is soon to become just memories. We are about to take a major leap into “the adult world,” whether it is college or the workforce.
Preconception sex selection is an interesting topic that yields various opinions. Being able to determine the gender or biology of a child based on an erroneous preconceived notion changes the birth spectrum.
Recently, the Supreme Court heard the arguments in the case of Hollingsworth v. Perry. The case stems from the debates of the constitutionality of California’s Proposition 8.
Have you ever heard of the expression “out in Timbuktu”? In case you did not know, Timbuktu is a city in Mali, a former French colony, that has been in the news recently. March marked the third month of French military involvement in Mali.
It’s not every day that you’re impacted by the words of another person, much less a person you've never met before.
Every year, thousands of college students head off campus to vacation during their spring break. At Valparaiso University, we have a different tradition.
The word "summer" usually has a positive connotation. It makes teenagers think of sunshine, swimming, the smell of sunscreen and the feel of sand between your toes. It's amazing how adding one other word to it can create feelings on the complete other end of the spectrum.
After recent events, a change might be on the horizon of the American political arena. The beginning of March brought about the sequester. Congress could not come to a consensus, so President Barack Obama signed the budget cuts into law on March 1.
I am not a big fan of small talk. I understand that when people don't really know others very well, they tend to ask simple questions like "Hey, how's it going?" or "How are you?" But what do we really get to know about people by asking those questions?
If you've read any of my previous columns, you'll know I'm no friend of public education. I used to have the same attitude toward charter schools.
When did schools become a business instead of being a place for children to feel safe and find adult mentors?
I’m awkward. Throughout high school and now as a college student, I have gone past the stage of denial and come to grip with my regretful fate. The inappropriate chuckles, the misplaced words, and the stuttering that often encompasses my daily speech plague me to the point of insanity.
The Collage is Calumet New Tech High School’s poetry club and literary magazine. Charmaine Wierzbicki is the sponsor, I’m the senior editor, and Tania Flores is the junior editor. Joining this club was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
For as long as I can remember, I have been on the pursuit of happiness. I have searched endlessly for the things in life that will give me long-lasting happiness.
