The Moralist: House Party

Dear Maroon Moralist, Last week I was throwing a house party and I happened to see forty kids in my driveway. I realized that a student had a vodka bottle in his hand; I told him do not bring that into my house because my parents are home.

Dear Maroon Moralist, I applied to be a Civ-Ed advisor this year, and I didn’t get it.

I want to somehow bring this into light…

The Moralist: Cheating

Last week, I saw this student cheat off of another friend. Not only did she cheat off her friend throughout the test, but I also heard she found an answer key on the teacher’s desk. Of course, she got in the high 90s and I….well, I did not. What bothers me is that she is applying to the same college…
