    Former Briarhill Middle School substitute Joel Weber, nicknamed Tarzan by his students, stood looking out at the Nicaraguan community around him. He came to Nicaragua to experience a new culture and a new language. The off-the-grid town was small, and often electricity and running water were not a...

    With the end of summer comes the end of shorts and tank tops, right? Not necessarily. The Marquee found flexible and fashionable ways to transition your summer clothes to fall - and still be in dress code. Though the guys may not have as many issues with the dress code, some may still miss weari...

    In the world we live in today we are expected to be perfect at all times. We must fit in and look like our friends. We must talk the same and act the same and go to the same parties. We must get perfect grades, play perfectly during sports and look perfect while doing it. We cannot stand out, beca...

    It was the first day of school, and freshman Emma Bredenkamp had to get to the band hall. All the way from the art room by the gyms. On the other side of the school. She felt lost and overwhelmed by all the people, but was determined to make it through the stampede of students in the commons. Th...

    Little white balls with yellow smiley faces fly through the air. One, two, three. Around, up and over. The balls fly back and forth between students and over desks. Next, colorful scarves float in flowing patterns. This is the juggling club. AP biology teacher Scott Hinsley started the juggling ...

    A group of freshmen Girl Scouts all stand by the pool at a summer birthday party. The blue water shimmers beneath them on the hot Saturday in July. The girls laugh and try to push each other in the pool, seemingly running in place to keep their feet off the hot concrete. They jump in together. T...

    Breaking away from Steel Train and the popular band fun., Jack Antonoff performed with his new indie-pop band Bleachers at The House of Blues in Dallas on Nov. 2. Doors opened at 7 pm, and within 30 minutes the floor filled up with concert-goers. Wild Cub, a Nashville-based indie quintet, opened...

    Standing in a room With religion above me And alcohol at my feet Swirls of pink and blue light Get in my throat and eyes The bass pounds in my chest Replacing the beat of my heart And the saxophone rings in my head But all I can think about Is how you stood behind me With your arms aroun...

    The sun beats down on my back at 3:30 in the afternoon, but I have yet to get sunburn this summer. All I do is tan. Like a “perfect sun goddess,” as my pale best friend told me once. He’s in college now, and I miss him. Yet all I can think about is how that will be me in a year. My first day a...

    I'm not much in the mood to write, actually. Not after today. But I feel like I have to. It's just one of those things that can't pass without some sort of documentation. Especially since my first funeral to attend was for someone three years younger than me, the same age as my little...

    People always say that “one minute it’s this, the next minute everything changes.” I disagree. It’s more like one second. One second to transform your entire day. The whole week. The weeks to come. All it takes is the passing of one tiny, seemingly insignificant second. I was in Ateanna...

    Twelve high school students from the DFW area, loaded down with luggage, opened the doors to the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Grapevine and walked across the lobby. In the corner near the check-in desk, faculty from the University of North Texas waited for the young journalists. H...

    I knew the squirrels at the University of North Texas were more than a little friendly. I had seen their antics when I toured in the spring, reaching for bits of Chick-Fil-A from my mother. But these squirrels were on the border of being stalker-ish. My group from the workshop was trying to re...

    I never thought I’d be much of a ?#?twittergoddess?. But I was wrong. I’m a Twitter ?#?freak?. I’m a Twitter ?#?maniac?. I will rule all of ?#?socialmedia?. I will be your ?#?internetqueen?. I mean, I’ve had an account for awhile. I used it to tweet for my school. “You wrote a ...

    Corey Hale was in a dark room, filled with black light. All around him was blurred figures of people outlined in fluorescent colors. They came to him, dancing and making a great show of themselves. The room brightened and the people faded, and Hale floated around the room, looking down on himself. U...

    University of Maryland sophomore Talia Richman has a split personality. One as a quiet student. The other as a passionate journalist willing to go to extremes to tell people’s stories. As soon as she puts on her “journalist hat,” Talia becomes a whole new person. As she looks out at a group...

    The bow rustled in her hair as she stood in her driveway, her hands caressing the letter she had just read, a slight smile on her young face. "All my love… Forever." Those were the words that ended hundreds of letters that passed between Tracy and Jerry Gilles. She was 17 then. Twe...

    It’s HOG Week at Timberview High School, and sophomore Hannah Patterson is covered in squid slime. "The gym is a giant mess," Patterson said. Students stand in a line on either side of the gym, leftover food and spilled drinks from the cafeteria trash covering the floor. They clutch ...

    No, you can’t always get what you want… No, you can’t always get what you want… No, you can’t always get what you want… The easy guitar sounds slip out my truck’s cracked window as I speed along the road home. And I think it’s the words of that old Rolling Stones song that make ...

    It’s dark, and my truck is speeding up and slowing down seemingly of it’s own accord. There’s a voice like that of a radio announcer surrounding me. "Has your car ever been acting up so you run stop signs? And then you get pulled over despite the fact you’re afraid for your safety?&q...

    To say that’s it been a strange week would be an understatement. The last day I played in band was Wednesday. On my trombone at least. I used somebody else’s on Thursday since I purposely left mine at home, hoping to possibly escape from playing. Even though I was fuming about the fact that I...

    It’s been a year since I’ve been kissed A year since I’ve been held in your warm embrace A year since my fingers curled with yours A year since I lost you I’ve felt sadness as deep as the sea Anger as hot as the stars we once watched in the night sky Loneliness as suffocating as a ro...
