You’ve seen the sights, heard the sounds, but get ready to smell the smells of Parkway West! Your nose is about to become more acquainted with this school than you previously thought possible.

If you’re reading this in the spring of 2019, you’ll probably notice that the stairs may smell like the primer section of Home Depot, and you’d be right. The freshly painted stairs all around the building emit a dry and woody aroma for those sprinting up and down them to get to class. To me, it smells like an artificial forest, and provides a comforting solace in the hustle and bustle between bells.

P to the U! But is it really a surprise? Teenage boys are notoriously some of the stinkiest members of our society. Especially make sure you avoid the locker room after school when the football, basketball,baseball or track teams change for practice (depending on the season), as this tends to be the smelliest time of the day.

Usually, you can catch a whiff of the latest dishes that Culinary Arts teacher Katie Hashley and her class are churning out. Some of the foods they cook include cookies and pizza, as well as foods from around the world like Mexican nachos and enchiladas, which provide a nice sharp contrast to the smell of teenagers in the morning.

At first it may smell like any normal office—there is even an air freshener plugged into the wall to create a false sense of security, but I pity the fool who has to visit the lost and found to find an item of theirs, because I believe the lost and found possesses one of the mustiest, ugliest smells in the building. Some of the items in that room have been in there for the entire year, and mixing all of those mystery smells together can produce a nasty result.

As far as the cafeteria food goes, I’d give the cafeteria an average rating. But of course this isn’t about the taste, it’s all about the smell. The menu for today was chicken nuggets with seasoned fries. The seasoning on the fries has a famously strong smell of a smoky potato with salt and pepper, a smell that occasionally causes the lunch line to extend a hundred people long! It’s the closest thing we may get to real barbecue at school, so I choose to enjoy it.

I don’t consider myself a coffee fan; frankly, it’s far too bitter for me, but the smells of Blue Brew are bound to be enticing. The fresh coffee grinds permeate the room and leave you with a feeling of serenity. It reminds me of Starbucks for sure, the one time in the last 10 years that I’ve been there.
