Orange Media publications are official student-produced mediums of news and information published by the Journalism students of Olentangy Orange High School. The publications have been established as a designated public forum for student journalists to inform, educate and entertain readers as well as for the discussion of issues of concern to their audience. They  will not be reviewed or restrained by school officials, adults or sources prior to publication.

The content of the publications is determined by and reflects only the views of the student staff and not school officials or the school itself. They will not publish any material, determined by the staff or adviser, that is libelous, obscene or disruptive to the school day.

The advisers are Kari Phillips and Brian Nicola. Readers may respond to the publications through Letters to the Editor. Letters may be mailed, e-mailed to or dropped off to room 2223. The staff asks that submissions be 300 words or less and contain the author’s name and signature. Editors reserve the right to edit or withhold publication of letters.

The publications strive to uphold the Canons of Professional Journalism, which includes accuracy, impartiality, etc. Therefore, major errors will be corrected in the next issue. Distinction will be marked between news and opinion stories.

I’ve learned the most about life at my first concert. Well, I guess it wasn’t even a concert. It was Breakaway Music Festival. But you get the picture.

I didn’t know what to expect. I had this image in my mind of a massive crowd of people singing and dancing together, e...

The word “Hollywood” often evokes romantic notions of celebrities strutting down red carpets, while cameras flash and click like thousands of twinkling stars. These “superior humans” live in a world of Gatsby-like proportions, a gold-crusted bubble where the inhabitant...

I’m not one for cliches, but after much, much reflection I’ve come to the somewhat overrated conclusion that music for millennials can be defined by one thing: headphones in, world out. No, I didn’t come up with this expression, and yes, you’ve probably heard it before...

The world was full of color. It danced in the air. It stretched its kaleidoscopic arms across the quad. It clung to every pore of my skin. It was a part of me.

As I look back on the past year of my life, I’ve tried to pinpoint the exact moment when I, a Catholic girl of...
