    After a year full of negativity and loss, Ariana Grande turned what could have been a very mournful record into something a little more positive. Sweetener is Grande’s fourth studio album and is the first album to be released following the attack at her Manchester concert in May 2017. Grande’s pre...

    Grande's album cover features a simple headshot of her, surrounded by a beige background. The most notable feature of the cover is the fact that she is upside down. This is Grande's first album cover that is in color.

The Disease Sweeping Seniors: Senioritis

Sydney Ascencio, Staff Writer | June 4, 2018

Every student has heard of it.  It’s something every underclassman claims to have, yet cannot truly comprehend until their final year of high school.  Senioritis refers to the lack of incentive experienced by seniors to write essays, take tests, complete math problems, or to do just about anything school related in general.  To put this notion into perspective, I pushed this article off until...

Is Cinco de Mayo a Commercialized Holiday?

Elly Haushalter, staff writer | May 14, 2018

Cinco de Mayo is the annual celebration of the Mexican army’s improbable victory over the French army on May 5th, 1862, in Puebla, Mexico.

I’ve been doing a little bit of traveling between different cities in the area, and visiting different Christmas markets. Yesterday (Saturday) I went to Münster with two other exchange students, one from New Hampshire and the other from Japan. The previous week was pretty rough for me, and a few unfortunate...

It may be cold and snowy here in Central Pennsylvania but if you’re like me, you’re dreaming of spring weather-and have a Pinterest board full of clothes you hope to buy this season.
