House pets floating on wooden doors, drenched people climbing into rescue boats, whole families living in garages. Hurricane Harvey has torn into our own country and impacted people close to us who now face bitter times. However, any person with a desire to contribute to the relief efforts of recent...

Imagine this: you are running up a hill. You have been running up this hill for a long time (four years) and it’s a really big hill. You paid thousands of dollars to go on this run, and you’re almost to the top. The whole time, for all those four years of running, your parents, friends, and family...

Let’s face it, jeans are a fashion staple. Everyone has a pair of jeans, from flare, skinny, straight leg, boyfriend fit to ripped jeans. We’ve come a long way- jeans are a classic symbol of American fashion. Personally, my jeans are one of the most personal things I own, and I tend to get attached...

As some of you may already know, I am half Belgian and travel to Europe twice a year to visit my family. Of particular interest to me, are European’s thoughts on the American presidential race, something I had a unique opportunity to ask this summer while working abroad. What I found, was that many...

Homecoming: It’s not all fun and board games

Cards were scattered all over the floor and candy was smudged into the carpet. Finally, we had the gym to ourselves, and that wasn't a good thing. My ears were still ringing from the loud music and as I stood under the blinding lights, I imagined the people who were currently enjoying themselves without...

A blurry image. Someone is holding the nuclear launch codes, but we can’t quite see them. The CIA operative gives the order: “Zoom! Enhance!” And suddenly the image is in full detail - mission accomplished. This is a movie fallacy that any photographer will tell you is impossible - you can’t...

Let’s Ditch the SAT

Filed under Editorial, Opinion

I've never been a fan of standardized tests, frankly I dislike them. Maybe it's because I’ve had to drive all the way up to Shoreline to a testing center at 7:00am on a Saturday morning when I could have driven over the hill to Seattle Pacific University. Maybe it is the small cramped desks, the ones...

Although it may seem hard to believe, some humans actually enjoy the sport of running. Yes, really. I was not always one of those humans. If someone had asked me a handful of years ago to go for a run just for the heck of it, I would have most likely questioned their motives and inquired about what food...

To the editor: Thank you, as always, for introducing us to the new faculty. I always appreciate this service, particularly this year when you were so complete with the kitchen staff. One editorial objection: contrary to the headline, Adelphia wasn't removed "to make room for a new practice field."...

JULIA PIACENTINI '15 Owen Suskind was three years old when he was diagnosed with autism. As many autistic kids, Owen had an affinity for a very specific thing. For Owen, this was Disney movies. He would watch Disney movies day in and day out and play, rewind and replay certain scenes over and over...

Give Lent a Chance

March 24, 2015

Filed under Opinion

SIENA JEAKLE  '15 It's that time of year again — the season of new life, Spring cleaning, and, for Christians, our forty days of dieting. Despite criticisms of Lent from both the religious and the non-religious, I hold that Lent is nothing but beneficial when practiced thoughtfully, and it really...
