On May 16, the US Senate voted against the FCC ruling to preserve Net Neutrality, the principle that internet service providers cannot deny or restrict access to select sites; that is,- ISPs must be indifferent to what sites are visited by the user in terms of the speeds they provide. This is a pretty...

Senior Year: Unstuck in Time

Emma Cooney, Editor-in-Chief

May 26, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

This year among all the other Sr. required reading, I managed to read Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5, in which the main character Billy Pilgrim is “unstuck in time,” living various moments throughout his life at random times, out of order. In the novel, time is not a series of events happening...

James Martin: A Modern Jesuit

Annika Bjornson, Editor-in-Chief

May 25, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Many of the people we look up to as a society are the famed, charismatic, and attractive movie stars, singers, and millionaires. As teenage students of a Jesuit school, there are not many public figures with strong Jesuit values to whom we can relate and admire. However, Father James Martin SJ has provided...

Forget About the Stigma: Male Nurses in the Field

Sophie Freeman, Photo Editor

May 23, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

When one hears the word “nurse,” they will probably picture a woman. When one hears the word “doctor,” they will probably picture a man. More often than not, male nurses are mistaken for doctors, solely based on the fact that they are male. Since nursing has become a female dominated career,...

Understanding Prep’s Privilege

Annika Bjornson, Editor-In-Chief

April 27, 2018


Filed under Opinion

At Seattle Preparatory School, our academic platform allows us to experience a wide variety of opportunities. Some would call this “privilege,” which refers to a special right, advantage, or immunity that is available only to a particular group of people. It is important to acknowledge the presence...

Social Media: A Barrier to Actualizing Our Humanity

Annika Bjornson, Editor-in-Chief

March 1, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Total control, perfection, and gratification are fabricated prospects that we as a society vainly attempt to reach, but social media has perpetuated our impression that these ideals can be met. As an eighteen-year-old student growing up in the revolution of the Web, I recognize the ways in which social...

There have been 26 school shootings this year. Not this school year; 2018 alone. Two months into this year on February 15, 2018, 17 students were killed, and at least 14 others were injured as a result of Nikolas Cruz who used a semi-automatic rifle to end the lives of innocent high school students in...

The LRC Serves the Needs of Many

Sophie Freeman, Photo Editor

January 7, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

Over the past few years I have overheard students talk about the LRC as if it were exclusively a place for intellectually challenged students, when in fact there are many reasons for someone to use it. In actuality, the LRC is meant to help and accommodate all kinds of students including but not limited...

December 15, 2017


Filed under Editorial, Opinion

I have always regarded December as a time of anticipation. In elementary school, I became excited for Christmas as soon as my teachers brought out their Advent wreaths and the music teacher announced what songs we would be singing at the school concert. Once break had finally started, my sister and I...
