What I Learned from Carlton the Crab

Abby Arthur, Photography Editor

November 7, 2018

Senior Pilgrimage. A retreat full of bonding, strolling through Kent, and making friendship bracelets. When people hear ‘senior pilgrimage’, the first thought that comes to their head is not often: ‘new pet’. However, this year’s retreat was a special exception. It all began during free...

Emma Cooney, Editor-in-Chief

May 26, 2018

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.

May 23, 2018
