At school it’s time to get your homework out, and you can’t remember where in the world you put it, so you get a late grade. This routine is an endless cycle that leaves you frustrated and overwhelmed. ...

One of my favorite adages comes from a Greek proverb. “Society grows,” goes the saying, “when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” While I balk at the adjective “old,” I think often of this saying as I reflect on my years at St. George’s. Literally and...

As the end of the year swiftly approaches, most students are looking forward to summer and the free time that comes along with it. However, a cloud hovers over the festivities in the shape of the honor society inductions and award ceremonies. Sitting through these awards for an hour or more leaves...

Taylor Owens, Editor-in-chief

April 28, 2015

Sexual education tends to be a sensitive topic in the academic world. Middle school and high school are not only for academic growth. They are also intended to help teenagers grow into well-rounded and socially aware adults. There is debate about how much sexual education should be included in this process,...

Is dress code the best road?

Is dress code the best road?

Anna Marie Beard, Copy Editor

April 10, 2015

At St. George’s, nothing is quite so divisive as the dress code. It is a dangerous, capricious enemy, one that sets student against faculty and peer against peer. A realistic, mutually satisfactory solution to the issue has yet to present itself, and most people seem to be fine with this state of affairs. My...

Did you have trouble choosing which classes to take next year? You’re not alone. St. George’s currently requires students to have 24 and two-thirds credits in order to graduate, which would be an easy task if it were not for complications within the current elective system. While completing class...

Best Buddies is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for one-on-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development...

Why Heifer Ranch is worth your time

Miriam Brown, Katie Boyle, and Kai Taylor

March 18, 2015

Every year, sophomores take a class trip to Heifer Ranch, one of the more well-known trips of the St. George’s experience. Although we were not particularly happy about this trip, it was an eye-opening and memorable experience for all of us. The poor shelter conditions left many students freezing...

Choosing the 901: A city like no other

The Memphis Bridge's silhouette stands out against a colorful sunset. The bridge is one of the most recognizable features of Memphis.

Emily Persons, Writer

February 19, 2015

Growing up in Memphis, I used to think everything here was normal and assumed Memphian qualities could be found in other cities as well. However, upon venturing outside of the 901, I have since realized that Memphis truly has much to offer that other places do not. We, as locals, often take these certain...
