LETTER from The Editor

Welcome back Jaspers!

Whether you’re reading this on campus or from your remote education base, we’re happy to have our work back in front of your eyes. For those that are new here, I’ll reintroduce myself. My name is Gabriella and I am the current Editor-in-Chief. We have an amazing staff working hard to keep you up to date on the latest campus news. I promise The Quadrangle will be working hard all semester, no matter what happens with the pandemic.

Speaking of the pandemic, I want to use my space to urge you to be responsible this semester. Everyone has something at stake here so please, wear your mask, socially distance and be honest on your symptom tracker. I want everyone to have the best semester as possible and while it look different than it traditionally does, I know it’s possible to be safe AND have fun.

The world is not the same as it was six months ago. It blows my mind how much has happened and changed, but I firmly believe we are all better for it. We have had months of a slow pace, months of social movements. Time to reflect, time to learn, time
to grow. Now, it’s time to put it into action. For us, here at The Quadrangle, what that looks like is writing away. We will always ask the hard questions and we’ll be here, in-person and remotely, recording the first draft of the college’s history. This chapter is
new and exciting but we’re ready for it. I hope you enjoy the hard work in these pages.

If you’re interested in joining us, shoot us an email at thequad@manhattan.edu and we’ll add you to our mailing list. Meetings will be virtual this year, which is our way of contributing to a safe but accessible environment.

Have a great start to the semester & happy reading!


Gabriella DePinho
