Are there friend groups at GFS? Reporters Jasper M. and Joshua M. reached out to the GFS community and asked questions like “do you think there are friend groups at GFS?” and “How many friend groups do you think there are?” We got many different answers. Hope you enjoy!

Do you live in Nothing, Arizona? You probably think it’s a joke, but at one point people lived there. There are over 50 completely absurd names of cities and towns in the United States of America, and even more overseas. Some were just odd, some not funny enough to make the cut, and I wasn’t allowed to put a few names on the list because they were… a little too off color (not in my mind, but the advisors’ minds).
