I wanted to extend my deepest gratitude to everyone who read and gave such wonderful feedback on our first issue of the semester! It is so lovely to hear what various members of the college community have had to say, and it is so humbling to know that our work does not go unnoticed. Thank you for your loyal readership. We approach each week of publishing with a “for the people, by the people” mentality, ensuring that the voices of our community are heard.
With that being said, I want to address a major concern of the student body since our return to campus last week. Access Control is a new residence hall policy that went into effect last week, and to sum it up briefly, limits student access of buildings in which they do not have residence in. As Editor-in-Chief, and as a member of the student government executive board, I want you to know that you are heard. I encourage you all to educate yourselves on this policy and offer suggestions on how it can be improved. Get involved in the process of creating change.
You can read more about the ins and outs of this policy in this issue of the Quad, as well as last week’s issue. If you are passionate about this topic, I encourage you to come to the Student Government Assembly Meeting on Wednesday, September 4th at 12pm in Kelly 4B to offer your solutions. You can also write a Letter to the Editor with your concerns, ideas, and suggestions. Words are an incredibly powerful tool, and we are here to print what the people have to say.
Until next week, Jaspers!
