Coming on the heels of a highly-publicized controversy regarding former member Ameer’s sexual misconduct allegations over the Summer, Brockhampton was in a dark place.

Ames High isn’t really known for it’s 7 state swimming titles or its global rank in academics but rather our legendary school dances. From dance marathon to tucheze, we really have it all.

You wake up in a drowsy, panicked state. It’s Friday morning, you’re at the kitchen table with papers strewn about haphazardly, and your computer is still playing the same playlist of chapter reviews that you had been frantically combing the night before in place of the assigned American Pageant c...

     Since philosophy’s beginnings, people have debated the nature of reality. From Descartes hypothesizing that a demon was using evil magics to fool his senses, to the ‘brain in a vat’ that is directly stimulated, to Zhuangzi wondering if he was a man dreaming he was a butterfly or a butterf...

As I was beginning to write this article, I realized that there is not just one classroom that is the best. They all have different parts to them that make them the best, so I cannot write about just one classroom. I have narrowed down the classes to four finalists, and each room has a different aspe...

I’m not going to lie. I felt a little bit like an FDA inspector going into these stores with a hidden agenda. It wasn’t all stealthy smooth, though. I either forgot my phone (for note-taking) or it died upon arrival at at least three stores. I found some tissues in clothes I tried. I even had a c...

The Nintendo Switch released about a year back now. My birthday is in the first week of April, and my parents got me one for it. As somebody who’s seen the Switch grow over the last ten or twelve months, it’s justified its purchase in unexpected ways. Nintendo’s releases for the Switch have all ...

As long as I have lived in Ames, Jimmy Johns has always been the place to go. When people want a sub, they don’t hesitate to drive to the nearest JJs they can think of without a single thought of possibly going to Subway. There is a recent addition to the sub sandwich restaurants that are in Ames, a...
