For an institution that prides itself on being extremely inclusive, I have always found the football team’s jersey-giving an out of character tradition for our school. In a place where intellectualism is the main scale of rank, it is interesting to see how every fall the suburban school tradition ...

On the day before Homecoming, a rainbow of students litter the school in costume. This ranges from the Tennis girls in Corn Cobs to the football players in their jerseys.

September 12, 2018

Growing up in the melting pot of New York City, it’s easy to interact with foreign values, cuisines, arts, and religions. You can pass by an Indian spice shop and an Irish pub on the same block.

Gustie Owens  Editor in Chief  Volume 115 Board: I have no doubt that I just spent endless hours brainstorming, trello-ing, crosswording, over-caffeinating, and reporting with future Nobel Prize winners, devoted senators, incredible doctors, and reigning hot dog eating contest champions. And a...

Annabelle Chan

June 5, 2018
