    Food: Looking back as a vegetarian, the options for students that did not want the main course or the alternative lunch had very little alternative options. With pizza and buttered noodles twice a week, no wonder our children are getting diabetes. And that's not to say about those that got an extra helping of pizza or noodles! When Obama got elected into office I started to realize the change in our school lunches; students had to start to take two servings of fruit and a vegetable with every meal. Soon, pizza began to be served with kale chips instead of noodles and students were furious. I think it would be important to educate kids about healthy eating patterns to a fuller extent, seeing as though Muhlenberg did not have proper dietary education services.

    Administration & Policies: One of the things that annoys me the most about Muhlenberg is the "dress code". Young women are taught to body-shame, not being able to show any shoulders, not too much leg, and conservative tops. When I was 16, administration attempted to ban jeans with any holes in them. Any student that was seen wearing jeans with the slightest tear in them was sent to the office. If the student did not have proper clothes to change into, they were sent home, denying the student of their education. After a few weeks of this new dress code policy, students were still wearing ripped jeans and there were too many kids to send home on a daily basis, so the code was unimplemented.

    Sports & Fitness: When it comes to sports, Muhlenberg has a decent reputation in a few areas. With a brand new football field and track, students that had never participated in sports before decided to join a team. Athletics is taken pretty seriously by the students and peers; Friday night football games and weeknight volleyball drew dozens of people to spectate. Although, football players were given somewhat of a special treatment when it came to academics.

    Teachers: Although I can never say I had a teacher that did not care about me, I did have teachers that seemed to not care about their style of teaching. Some are very unorganized and lacksadasical when it comes to their teaching style, and some teachers would not reach out to struggling students. A few times I struggled to learn new chemistry formulas, new geometry formulas and so on, and I did not get adequate help from the teachers despite my inquiries for help. It was as if they wanted me to do it wrong so I could make corrections, but I found it particularly frustrating to try and complete an assignment that I was unsure of how to do it.

    Extracurriculars: As a very active student at Muhlenberg High School, I find it shocking that I had enough time to complete my homework after all of the activities I participated in. Mostly, my participation in sports was the most important to me and I feel as though the opportunities were fairly good. Despite the fact that Muhlenberg tried to eliminate a majority of the arts programs, (art class, band, chorus) they attempted to administer a $50 activity fee for all athletes, but failed with this proposal only a few short months after. All that had paid the $50 fee got a refund and no sports or classes were removed.
