Unfortunately, it might not take too much imagination for most students to envision such a world. To a large extent, for them, it's already here.
A part of me feels that the school seemed to present itself as better than it was. I was told that there is always something going on around campus, that the student-teacher ratio was amazing and visited on a warm fall day.
The "class reunion" is actually just an opportunity to gauge how far we've come in comparison to our old classmates. Who beat the expectations? Who flopped under pressure? Whose goals were achieved and whose went straight down the toilet? Why do we need this when we have Facebook?

Philly DoGooder II launched its second annual awards ceremony on March 12th in Hamilton Hall at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Fittingly ...

The email alert popped up with annoying regularity, reminding me that my high school reunion was approaching and I had not yet purchased my ticket.

This March was one of the most stressful, hectic months of my life. I feel like everything was either beginning or ending for me, and it was becoming increasingly difficult to decide what I should be letting go, what I should be working hard on and what I must learn to laugh off.
Was there a reason for this ridiculous behavior? If so, was there a cure and was I going to be the next Freud of the teenage psyche? I finally found my calling!
Nothing says Americana quite like musical theater. Despite rampant stereotypes, it's still one of the most popular entertainment venues in the country. (Just ask anyone who has stood in line at the TKTS booth in Times Square.)
"High school is such a miserable and horrible time for anybody that's creative. And Simon and those other guys were my saviors. No matter how many times we got rejected. No matter how many girlfriends we didn't have."
First of all, congratulations for making it this far in the college admissions process. You will most likely have many good colleges options already, but if you really want to go to a college that waitlisted you, follow as many of these 10 tips as possible.
