Decisions, decisions, decisions

On Wednesday, May 1, the class of 2024 gathered on the South front lawn to celebrate College Decision Day. Excited chatter filled the air as students proudly displayed their chosen schools’ merchandise. While a few students await the May 15 deadline, most showcased their decisions, reflecting the anticipation and excitement of embarking on their collegiate journeys.

Many students like Sam Adlhoch ’24 are excited to start their college journey in the fall. Attending Butler University, he is excited to expand his horizons when it comes to activities.

“I want to try and become a part of many clubs on campus that I feel passionate about and build relationships for the rest of my life,” Adlhoch said.

In addition to joining clubs, he shared that school is important to him to guide him into the future and set him up for success in the real world.

“It’s important to me, not as a backbone, but to learn skills to use when getting a job or applying into positions,” Adlhoch said. “I will use it as a tool to build off in the real world, helping me achieve higher things that I couldn’t do without my education or real-world experience.”

Many students are following in their parent’s or sibling’s footsteps by attending the same university they did. Rebecca Roberts ’24 is following in her brother Williams Roberts ’22 by attending Michigan State in the fall.

“My school (Michigan State University) is important to me because it is a place I know I can grow and learn,” Roberts said. “It is also where my mom went and brother currently attends. I’m most excited to meet new people and experience living on my own.”

Third year staffer Madison Turnbull ’24 has a passion for aiding the community through the power of persuasive journalism. Daily parking tickets? She can fix that with an opinion piece – the city conveniently cut down the tree blocking the parking sign. No winter formal? Although they ultimately reversed their decision, South chose to hold one shortly after her column was published.“My first and second year on staff really opened my eyes to a whole other realm of media and the power that journalism holds,” Turnbull said. “It’s not just a silly one-page story; it can go deeper and change people’s perspectives.”Turnbull said she enjoys the flexibility her position as Social Media Manager offers and the way it allows her to connect with the student body.“It opened my eyes to a different world,” Turnbull said. “There’s more to high school and more to life than the four years.”

Morgan Payne ’24, Multimedia Manager
Regarding hard work, seconnd-year staffer and Multimedia Manager Morgan Payne ’24 is driven by the word. From working multiple jobs to writing for two newspapers, Payne is diligent, dedicated and disciplined. “I work a lot, I have multiple different jobs, including the Tower which is a big job itself,” Payne said. “If I’m not at school, I’m probably at one organization or being a waiter at Antonio’s in Grosse Pointe Park.” Payne said she loves journalism, not just because her friends are in there because she loves to write. “Journalism has a special meaning to me because its a form of communication,” Payne said. “I’m a big talker and I love to inform, so journalism is right up my alley and is something I am going into for my career.” Outside of Tower, Payne said she likes to write short stories and is a part of different organiztions that empower young women. Payne said she can’t wait for a new year of the Tower and hopes other people will join too. “I would suggest anybody who loves to write, get along with people, get involved with your community to join The Tower,” Payne said. “The Tower has been such a great outlet for me to express myself, so join The Tower if you want that.”
