Every year, students are spoken to about kindness and friendship amongst the grades and how the incoming freshmen need to be treated with both of them instead of constant alienation. This is despite a fact that we all know: freshmen are lame. As much as we can talk about how “freshman hate” is hazing a...

Recently, in the girl's bathroom next to the cafeteria an ant was found on the toilet seat. This is extremely disgusting and poses the question of how clean the school really is.
