Calina He | November 18, 2020

Just like most seniors,  I am in the process of applying to college. Especially this year, when I wasn’t able to visit colleges in-person and had to rely on learning about colleges virtually, the stress of choosing schools and applying is ever-growing. I have watched campus tours and participated in virtual informational sessions for hours on end, worrying about applications and applying to the...

However, once I heard that school was going to get out at 3:45 p.m., I realized that I would need to come into the school in the morning to get some work done, considering we essentially lost an hour after school. I assumed that school would still open at 7...
