Is University Worth It?

By Bailey Welshans

The future has a lot to hold but going to college doesn’t have to be one of those things. In the society we live in today, however, it seems that everyone thinks you need a college degree to be successful.

That is a completely false statement. Attending a college like a community college is not only more financially responsible, but for many it’s the best choice.

For many students, a university may be the best choice and I understand that. There are some career paths that require a university degree, such as engineering, nursing, business, or law. I realize that many also believe the “college experience” is the right next step. The parties, relationships, and moving out of your parents’ house are also among the appeals to college.
However, if you don’t know exactly what you want to do for a career, why spend all the money just to possibly change majors halfway through college?

Senior Survivor 4/26

Senior Survivor competitors push through the last competitions of the week.

Thursday night, the competitions included hide & seek, putting a puzzle together blindfolded, and baking a cake with no recipe. The seniors were competitive and they had a lot of fun during the games.

The most popular game of the night was a simplified version of Food Network’s CHOPPED. The task: baking a cake with no recipe and presenting it in front of a panel of four judges. The categories that were judged included presentation, taste, and texture. Each cake was judged hard, and the judges ( Mr. Heuser, Mrs. Dunn, Nicole Tuzinowski, and Elisabeth Johanson) seemed to enjoy them.

This week of competitions has worn out the teams, and they are all ready to go home.

4-H Happens

How animals, leadership, discipline, and fun, come together to build DHS students into the next generation of 4-Her’s.

By Bailey Welshans

While DHS isn’t widely known for having a lot of students involved in agriculture anymore, its roots continue to run deep. If there is a student who is very interested in animals or crops, they are most likely involved in a program called 4-H. Many believe that 4-H is just for showing animals, but that isn’t true at all.

Youth involved in 4-H do activities such as sewing, painting, photography, archery, woodworking, gardening, leadership activities, and so much more. If you have an interest in it, 4-H has a category for it. That is the great thing about 4-H — kids from different backgrounds and with different interests, come together to do what they love.
