Health & Wellness Fix

Chumani Chamberlain

Start small, and then try to keep it very consistent and then keep adding days and keep adding different kinds of workouts so you   get bored and you have something to look forward too!

Olivia Heck

So if you get a feeling you're not working out enough, just take it one step at a time, set goals for yourself with one to two workouts a week then work your way up! Because a little really does go a long way!

The College Process: Endgame

ANDREW KIAMA

I took the SAT three times and did worse each consecutive try, so that was great. And then I took the ACT once and I didn’t like it very much.

Thomas Van Buren

I believe in the mantra that college is what you make of it. One piece of advice would be to keep an open mind.

The Mind of a Learning Disability

CLAIRE CAVANAUGH

People sometimes make jokes to me or something about ... what's the point of standardized testing with extra time

Grace Unes

You can have a student who is remarkably intelligent...and yet has some mis-wiring that causes the learning disability...so that student isn't incapable of doing the work, they just need to do it slightly differently

Service Learning at SSSAS

SARAH NGUYEN

I just want more of our students to go on service trips. I think there's something about having an immersive experience like that, that really affects people deeply

Ms. Via

It's my first time out of the country, so to go to Kenya on my first time out of the country was definitely shocking culturally. It'll always be special to me because of that and also because it was such a unique opportunity

In this country I think the common misconceptions that there is a creepy looking guy  in a white van who drives by and grabs girls from the street corner...that is not how it happens

The purchasing of someone else's body, even if it's legalized, for their own use is criminal activity

Haze-itutional

TORI CARR & MARIA SIMPSON 

Most people think of hazing as a practice that takes place with college and high school sports teams. Mainly all boys sports teams.  

Tori Carr

The definition [of hazing] is such a ... loaded term and it's individualistically unique and it's based on perspectives, and it's based on what everyone's position is within the overall term.
