At South, a tutorial is very similar to a study hall. In my experience, students use it to do homework or just relax on their phones. Teachers can allow students to socialize or not— it’s entirely to their discretion. I believe having a loud tutorial is more productive because in nearly every cl...

Robbie Buhl’s teen street skills program in Detroit bettered me as a driver and increased my confidence behind the wheel. Although the three-hour class was pushed into one hour for me, I got a taste of every simulation with hands-on experiences that overall increased my driving skills as a newly licens...

The PSAT to me is just a routine assessment I take twice a year. I personally don’t take the PSAT as serious as I need to. Now being an upperclassman, I realize now the benefits of taking these seriously. In fact, when I hear the PSAT is coming up, I get excited for it because I know there will be...

I think that having a quiet tutorial is academically beneficial and a person is more inclined to work efficiently with a quiet room. I don't have that much of experience with a tutorial class, as I didn’t take one freshman year. But I did this year, and I have deduced that, for me at least, the...

On my way to school, lawns are dotted with signs. Some are for Senate, some for the Governor and some simply let other people know they aren't hated there. These signs have been standing around all summer. A new sign caught my eye last week, black and red in the middle of an empty lawn.  “NOT THI...

Photos by Daniel Klepp Rocco’s Italian Deli is a New-York corner style deli with a modern twist which opened in June, specializing in sandwiches and salads.  Once walking in, you can tell that it is more focused on the modern aspect than the retro.

As I stepped out of my car and walked towards the recently opened Azra Chamber of Horrors Haunted House, a multitude of thoughts pondered in my head, as I hadn’t stepped foot inside of a haunted house in a long time.
