When listening to senior Noah Pope speak about Cutco, one could be forgiven if for thinking he was describing Stratton Oakmont from “The Wolf of Wall Street.” “If you walk into a Cutco meeting and you’re sitting there, there’s tons of screaming, tons of cheering loud. It’s controlled chaos,”...

Instead of walking through busy hallways and making my way through the noisy crowds, I am surrounded by nothing but nature: the yellow flowers ahead of me, the hoophouse harvesting new vegetables on my right and the newly-built treehouse across the po...

There is a secret group of students on campus. No one knows when they meet, where they meet or what they discuss. The results of their meetings are held so closely that no one who attends is allowed to speak of them outside of or after the meeting. This group of students is the Honor Council, and wh...

Senior Adam Cruthirds walked 13.1 miles at the St. Jude marathon arm-in-arm with his friends, pumped with chemotherapy, adrenaline and the knowledge that he had a major surgery the next morning, but he crossed the finish line anyway. This was just another average day for Adam Cruthirds. Adam,...

The Bleacher Creatures weren’t about to let a fence at an away football game keep them from celebrating a St. George’s win. Even though St. George’s students had been told that they were not allowed to run on the field to celebrate after the 38-21 win over Briarcrest on Aug. 28, they...
