The great Miss Helen Keller once said, "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." The sophomore lives by these words. It's time to make a little history of their own. Sophomore year is here. Whether they're being caught with their pants down, or shirt off, being dragged across an intersection, or leaping out of windows, they're out to make the most of life. Whether sophomore, “Strummer,” teacher, or parent, one thing’s for sure, they’re not freshmen anymore.
