The night before a big test can be a stressful one. You have no idea what’s going on and the clock is ticking. For most, they simply give up and go to bed. But those who study within the hallowed halls of room 5235, this is only the beginning. For Thomas Kennedy has a humble little Youtube channel (aptly named LibertyMathandStuff) that serves to help students revi...

Random compliments: the best holiday gift

Filed under Opinion, What's Good?

We’ve all had those days: your alarm clock went off late, you missed the bus, forgot you had a CRO due, tanked a test, and to top it all off, hadn’t even had time to make yourself coffee in the morning. But then, a random stranger, perhaps someone you’ve only seen at a glance, flashes you a small...

While walking to class on the familiar route that I’ve used for the past three years, I absentmindedly exit the cafeteria and head down the stairs.

Just imagine: you’re starving. Every morning you wake up, quickly get dressed, and rush out the door to Liberty—no time to pack a lunch—yet you’ve forgotten your wallet, and can’t buy food either. Every second you go without food is another second your stomach spends growling. You dart into...

Your Liberty sports bag may look pretty snazzy, but coupled with a fifty-pound backpack, bassoon, P.E. shoes, and a $6 lunch from the Patriot Pantry, you’re having a pretty hard time getting around campus. Lucky for you, the person in front of you has turned to hold the door, even though you’re still t...

What’s good: Falling in love with fall

Madison Prather, Staff Writer

Filed under Opinion, What's Good?

Besides being aesthetically pleasing for your Instagram photos, the color change in leaves--from green to all shades of red, orange, yellow, and purple--adds a spot of happiness to an otherwise dismal day of school. As you groggily drive to Liberty in the wee hours of the morning, the still-rising sun...

The art of Creative Writing

Filed under What's Good?

Art—the expression of emotion through creative mediums. Traditionally, the word “art” triggers images of painters, dancers, photographers, and musicians, but one artist tends to remain forgotten: the writer. The idea, the style, the voice—all components of a story must interact in order for...

If that is the case, take some time today to appreciate your papers that can be immediately put into your binder with no extra effort of using the 3-hole punch....

Eight periods are better than six

Aria Soeprono, Opinion Editor

Filed under What's Good?

Patriots rejoice! Although many people are quick to criticize the A/B schedule with eight classes a year, it actually provides a distinct advantage to us students. Yes, it can be overwhelming at times, but the benefits far outweigh the costs. It gives us a chance to explore our interests through more...
