Letters From Your New Student Editors

Our Purpose Statements

  My name is Deborah Robinson. I am a senior at MCSM, and I first joined the newspaper staff in September 2015, the beginning of my Junior year. As a staff reporter my main interests were writing about anything I was given to write. I didn’t have a specific thing that I liked to write about so I was given assignments that had to do with news reporting. As one of your new Editors in Chief I am interested in seeing more articles about your interests and what’s going on in the world. Attendance at weekly newspaper meetings is mandatory for club members unless editors are notified in advance by text or …continue reading

  Kiara Ventura  Hosts an Art Show Party! Rampage founding-editor and MCSM graduate Kiera Ventura is currently entering her Junior year at NYU with a double major in Journalism and Art History. This fall she heads to Spain for her junior semester abroad, but Ventura kept busy in July by curating an innovative gallery show in collaboration with rappers and poets from various local colleges.  Not unlike freelance curators from the “uptown meets downtown” art scene of the 1980s, Ventura hung experimental paintings in a non-traditional space, then invited three poets and two hip hop acts to perform live while …continue reading

Café Au Lait

By Karla Davis   “Chocolate is brown, vanilla is white, strawberry is pink, lemon is yellow.” The young mother vocalizes these facts slowly to her small child. They are standing together in front of the store’s new ice cream display. Mama is teaching her daughter what is what. The little girl, overwhelmed by the wide range of flavors, moves closer to the window display. She presses her round rosy-cheeked face and tiny fingers  against the window. She begins to recite what her mother had just told her, except that she gets it all wrong. Pointing to the vanilla, she says, …continue reading
