10 Signs You Graduated (Recently) from Nordonia High School
Eliza Sawyers

If you've graduated recently from Nordonia High School, I'm sure you're excited to finally broaden your horizons outside of Macedonia, Ohio, the area that is well-known for being near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the Hard Rock Rocksino, and being close to "The Land" (thanks, Lebron). But despite where you end up after walking across that stage, Nordonia will have its lasting effects and memories that will follow you forever.

1. Knights for Life.

Anytime you see dark green and black, you're definitely gonna assort it with the teams you cheered on over the years.

2. "Where's Nordonia Hills?"

Yes, Nordonia Hills City Schools is the name of the district. No, Nordonia Hills isn't a place. Shout out to the people that decided to be clever and combine Northfield, Macedonia, and Sagamore Hills into Nordonia Hills.

3. We take football very seriously.

The community takes the game more seriously than even the students do in the student section. If you support the Massillon Tigers, we definitely can't be friends.

4. Everyone is either an athlete or a performer....or both.

When you attend a high school with an amazing athletic program and an awesome theatrics department, everyone is usually apart of one or the other. Sending both your football team to the State Championship and having the band and choir receive top OMEA ratings is great.

4. 2:11 = FREEDOM.

Even as an alumni, I get a little excited when the clock reads 2:11. Old habits die hard.

5. You'll miss the cookies every day.

Those fifty cent pieces of happiness, especially the ooey gooey ones. You will honestly consider visiting the school just to get the cookies. NO JOKE.

6. Farinacci's Pizza and Rosati's are still your favorites.

Despite where you move after high school, these two places will still have the best pizza and frozen custard. Guaranteed. Did you really go to Nordonia if these weren't a few of the best hangout spots?

7. Following your teachers on Twitter- and you probably still do.

Why else would I need Twitter other than to follow Mr. Curcic and Mr. Loman?

8. "3rd period- Here we go!"

Broman's voice was always such a great soundtrack as you ventured through the halls to your next class.

9. Lip Sync/ Spirit Week.

Hands down the best week of the year. When else is it acceptable to wear all one color, dress as a nerd, or even wear pajamas?

10. Connecting with some of the best faculty you will ever meet.

I was so blessed to have been taught by some of the most amazing teachers I have ever met. These teachers have shaped my goals and dreams for the future based on the experiences I had in their classes (especially you, Ms. Blair).

While I may have had many rough moments during high school, the proud spirit and devotion to education from Nordonia will always stick with me.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
