Dear Readers of the Panther Press, There comes a time in the year where us students need to unwind and relax. After the long and tiring stretch from the end of winter break through the end of March, everyone becomes just a little worn down. The monotony of second semester life becomes just a bit tedious,...

Leditor: Why Does Journalism Matter?

Dear Readers of the Panther Press, It’s been a long few months here at Strath Haven, from finals to community issues to nationwide tensions. Never have I ever felt so strongly about the need for journalism in the world as I do today. As we enter a new age of alternative facts and disregard for the...

Dear Readers of the Panther Press, It’s that time of the year again-election season. For seniors, that means some students are armed with the ability to vote and contribute to deciding the next president of the United States. Others, like me, will observe from the sidelines. Under one tenth of Strath...

The Leditor: One Last Hoorah

Dylan Van Duyne '14, Editor-in-Chief
May 28, 2014
Filed under Editorial Board

Dearest readers of the Panther Press- it appears my time as Editor-in-Chief has finally come to an end. I promise not to get overly sentimental on you, but I wanted to spend some time discussing what the Panther Press has meant to me over the past four years. I like to think of myself as a writer who...

The Leditor: Pilot Year of the Online Edition

Anna Jaoudi '15, Online Editor-in-Chief
May 28, 2014
Filed under Editorial Board

In a world where information is spread in a matter of seconds, many believe that has led to the descent of the newspaper as an industry. Yet, just because your news isn’t dropped off on your doorstep at 5 am every morning, printed in black ink on grey paper, does not mean there is suddenly no more...

The Leditor: Saying Goodbye to the Class of 2014 in the Midst of Tomfoolery

Josh Kauffman '15, Editor
May 28, 2014
Filed under Editorial Board

Louis C.K. once discussed in his stand-up comedy how humans are the only species that are afforded the chance to pass away in their bed, surrounded by loved ones, and do not instead end their lives being chased by a predator before being eaten. This same benefit of drawn-out departure is provided to...

Filed under Editorial Board

Just weeks after the release of the last issue of the Panther Press, which highlighted the risks of drunk driving in an article about the mock car crash, a major drug bust occurred, and several alumni of the Haverford School were arrested. The seemingly unrelated issues of drunk driving and illict drug...

AP Statistics

David Silverstein '16, Staff Writer
May 28, 2014
Filed under Editorial Board

One of the biggest complaints of any class is that the course material is inapplicable to life, both now and later on. But, with AP Statistics, this is not a problem. AP Statistics is an elective math class that is a one semester long. This course includes topics ranging from experimentation to probability...

Photography 2

Andrew Lombard '15, Editor
May 28, 2014
Filed under Editorial Board

Photography 2 is not so much of a class as it is an experience. The moment you enter the classroom (if you can get through the frequently locked doors) you feel like you’ve gone back in time. VHS and Cassette tapes line the bookshelves, and the carpet is unlike any other room in the building. The daily...
