I like this story idea. We could conduct a survey about students' favorite places to hang out, then interview people, take some photos at the places, and write about them. That would be the kind of story that would be fun to look back on in 20 years.
Repetitive design these layouts have a full page dominant photo with pictures coming out of it with a white background. The giant picture catches your eye and the pictures coming out guide your eye towards the story.
it has a good mix of pics to text and information. If we decide to do a sports section it works well
