Letter from the Editor

By, Jocelyn Visnov, Editor-in-Chief

Dear readers, 

Hello and happy Issue 2! Within this week’s issue we have news updates on the state of student residence halls, information about local Riverdale restaurants, and an article featuring Pat Kehrberger ‘69, MC’s first female student.. 

As you’ll see on the front cover, we’re announcing the artist who will perform at this year’s Springfest concert! The annual Springfest carnival will begin at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 15th, followed by the concert at 7 p.m. I would like to extend a special thank you to Rosalia Cefalu, VP of Social Life, who has been working with Student Engagement to organize the event. I hope you’ll attend and join fellow jaspers for a day full of fun and entertainment. 

As for other campus activities, this week begins the weekly schedule of group fitness classes being offered by the fitness center including Yoga, Mixed Martial Arts and Weight Training for Beginners among others. There is also a welcome-back event with the Commuter Student Association on Wednesday at noon, and several opportunities to cheer on Jasper basketball in Draddy Gymnasium.

The Quadrangle is in the process of reviving our Facebook page! This is a great resource for alumni to keep up with campus news and stay in-touch with the Quadrangle. If you’re an MC alum with a story you think could be of interest to the current student-body, feel free to reach out to us via email at thequad@manhattan.edu

I would like to again remind students that the Quadrangle is always accepting new writers. Feel free to join us and take a pitch during our weekly staff meeting taking place on Tuesdays in Kelly 4.12 at 4 p.m. 

I hope your classes and extracurricular activities are off to a great start! No matter where your interests lay, MC has a variety of clubs and organizations that allow you to get involved and meet new people. I hope all students will take advantage of these opportunities and try something new as the semester progresses.

Thank you for reading the Quadrangle and keeping up with campus news. Until next week.
