Rock fans experienced the loss of musicians from two iconic bands in the summer.
Music was a huge part of my life before I even really recognized what it was. I can recall having dance parties to 1980s and 2010s hits alike with my whole family in our living room. And every time we sit down at our dining room table to eat, we match our genre of food to the genre of music …
As I am boxing up my clothes and school supplies to take with me to L.A., high school seems like a distant memory, even though my last day was only a few months ago. I have spent the last four years eagerly anticipating my time at college, looking forward to the years to come.

How do you give back to a community that has given you so much? My involvement in student government began in middle school, although I have become more invested during my time in high school due to having been involved in leadership opportunities all four years. The activities I have taken …
It’s Saturday, April 3, 2021, and the Gonzaga Bulldogs are in the NCAA Final Four, two games away from being part of history.
