Happy Joy Issue! With all of the chaos of the past two years, our staff chose to highlight the joy on campus. We looked for little pockets of good in our community to focus on.
While this issue is all about joy, this also happens to be my last issue as Editor-in-Chief. The past year has been the most difficult and rewarding time of my life. When I was elected into this position over year ago, I was excited and terrified for what lay ahead. Dealing with transitioning from online meetings to in-person meetings and handling budget cuts was nerve-racking and something I felt unprepared for.
On a personal note, this job gave me purpose during a tough year. It helped me get out of bed and reminded me of my passions. Through it all, my Quad family supported and lifted me up when I needed it. I will be forever grateful for them.
Thank you to the masthead, who have worked tirelessly over the past year despite various obstacles. To my managing editors, Maria and Jilleen, I would not have been able to fill this role without you. To Nicole and our wonderful production staff, the paper would be nothing without you and I’m going to miss our Sundays together. Thank you to Gabs for always assuring me and answering my frantic phone calls. Thank you to our advisor Nick for providing amazing guidance and support.
Kyla Guilfoil will be taking over as Editor-in-Chief. I know she will serve you all well. We are so proud of her and know she will carry The Quadrangle far. While I am sad to be leaving this position, this goodbye is also joyful, because I’m reminded of the memories that have been created along the way.
It has been my honor to serve as Editor-in-Chief.
Until next time.
Anna Woods, Editor-in-Chief
