If the American Museum of Natural History featured an exhibition on the singer-songwriter it would likely feature a spotlight shining on a stage and a slouched man or woman with a guitar. You stare through the thick glass, adjusting your glasses to better see the simple clothes and shaggy hair of the creature. He or she is strumming a melancholy song about an ex-lover with a pad of scratch paper to the left. In the background of the exhibit room are coffee house knickknacks and a brewing pot of herbal tea. Audience members are posed, searching their pockets for a tip to throw into the guitar case at the base of the makeshift stage. However, this scene is only the surface of what a singer-songwriter must be in the contemporary era. The exhibit must be modernized to include not only this typical coffee house performance, but a business that requires skill in music, technology, branding, and distinct creativity.

It’s that time of year again. The Shindig, which has been around since, well, since forever, really, is upon us once again. There will be music! There will be eggs! There will be water guns! But most importantly, there will be yearbooks. Of course, this isn’t enough to entice everyone into attending (you smug elitists). Here are 6 reasons why you should come to the Shindig.

Every year, the beautiful cherry trees located near the bell tower begin to flower and blossom in the spring, and everyone marvels in their beauty. We stand next to it and use it as a backdrop for our ceremonies like MHCSD and our opening ceremony at the beginning of the year.
However, not everyone takes the time to appreciate their beauty, and their contributions to our campus while the trees are not blooming. Hopefully with this article, you will be more mindful while walking around our campus and also appreciate all the nature that we are blessed to be surrounded with.

I was recently injured. I tore my rotator cuff skiing, and now I am in a sling. When I came to school on the next Monday, people noticed.
What will the world look like in 50 years? Maybe we will travel in hovercrafts or bullet trains that can take us from New York City to Beijing in a mere couple of hours. Cell phones will be an archaic form of communication; instead we’ll have wristbands or Google glasses that can search for movie tickets, organize schedules, and even project holographic videos. Wealthy families will vacation on the moon. Schools will be conducted via tablets or laptops, where students can download video lectures specially tailored to their interests and specific ways of learning. We’ll have made enormous strides in the medical field. Long gone will be the days where people die from organ failure. Instead, artificial organs can be grown overnight, genetically engineered to be a perfect match. Couples will go through genetic counseling before having babies. For enough money, everything can be chosen, from eye color to athletic ability.
