  At San Luis Obispo High School, there are various ways students can show their school spirit. Whether it’s through rallys or spirit weeks, there are many opportunities for students to show off their school pride. However, not all students take advantage of this opportunity.

  Expressions spoke with sophomore Grant Svendsen about his school spirit and what he thinks about the involvement of his peers.

Expressions: If you could change one thing about SLOHS what would you change?

Sophomore Grant Svendsen: I don’t know. Everyone I’ve talked to has been super nice and I’ve always had good interactions with people. I don’t think I’d change anything.

Expressions: In your opinion, what is the worst part of high school?

Svendsen: Sometimes I feel like not enough people participate in rally events or spirit days. Like, the Hawaiian vs. Western day? I didn’t really see anyone doing that. I’d say people could participate more.

Expressions: Who is or was the worst teacher that you’ve had and why?

Svendsen: I’ve only really had a few teachers. I guess it wasn’t the teachers themselves, but just online school in general wasn’t great. I struggled with learning at first. It was harder to learn online because there’s a lot more distractions. And I can’t speak for everyone, but a lot of my friends have had a similar experience.

Expressions: Do you have any plans for after high school?

Svendsen: I want to go to a four year college and also travel places because that would be really cool. I always hear about these really awesome places that my other friends go to and it sounds fun. 

Expressions: What could SLOHS do to be a more enjoyable place for you?

Svendsen: The community is pretty great and super friendly to everyone. I’m not really sure what I’d want to change, I feel like it’s just more participation and stuff. I feel like a lot of people would have more fun at SLOHS if they just got more involved. 

  As Svendsen said, as amazing as the campus at SLOHS is, students could show their school spirit more often. Getting involved with the community and increasing participation in classes, clubs, etc., would definitely be worth students’ time. 

  Get out there and show some school spirit, Tigers!
