The Power of Peer Effect
In high school, I was a straight-A slacker. These two things sound like an oxymoron (how can you be both a slacker and get straight As?), but hear me out.

Christmas in Grove City: It’s a BIG Deal
There may not be snow on the ground and students may have visions of finals rather than sugarplums dancing through their heads, but one step on campus and you can’t deny that Christmas is here. Just try walking five steps without encountering something wrapped in twinkling lights and adorned with red bow. You can’t. Every […]
