College commitments during corona

College commitments during corona

Medha Upadhyay, Features Editor May 27, 2020

One door closes, but hundreds more open

Audrey Wong, Managing Editor April 16, 2020

Preserving more than just instant ramen

Ashley Song, Design Editor April 14, 2020

I have a problem. Don’t be alarmed, it’s nothing life-altering or severe, and if you know me, it is probably old news. I really like instant ramen. And while I do admit it neither boasts any health...

Too late to join Instagam?

Sloka Suresh, Writer April 3, 2020

I had always envisioned my debut on Instagram as this magical moment marking my first real introduction to all things mainstream. After all, Instagram did pave the way for popular trends like the mannequin...

The Evolution of BTS: Fan Edition

Shamita Gurusu, Business/PR Manager April 3, 2020

When I first heard of BTS, I was not expecting much. I thought that they were simply another regular boy band, with average boy band songs in a language I could not understand. To validate my premature...

The best leftovers ever: how food brings together my family

Melissa Chen, Writer March 27, 2020

When we think of food, our minds usually go to cooking, shopping, ordering take-out or eating in restaurants. Bringing home leftover food, however, is just as meaningful in my family. My dad used to...

A love letter to Wuhan, China

Kaylin Li, Web Editor March 24, 2020

“Saving face” might mean not saving your face at all

Nicole Ong, Editors-in-Chief March 11, 2020

Goodbye, Cupertino

Nicole Ong, Editors-in-Chief February 26, 2020

There’s a children’s book that starts like this: Goodnight room, goodnight moon, goodnight cow jumping over the moon. For Cupertino kids, however, perhaps our bedtime stories should read more like...
