Hello and happy Women’s History Month!

This past week, MC was lucky enough to receive a visit from Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson. We’re very fortunate that local leaders such as Vanessa take time out of their busy schedules to visit MC and speak with Jaspers. 

This week, I hope you’ll join female-lead organizations such as the Lasallian Women and Gender Center, LOTUS, Her Campus, Alpha Pi Phi and Sigma Delta Tau on the Quad to celebrate International Women’s Day. Organizations will be fundraising for the Concourse House, a shelter providing social services for women and children in need located in the Bronx. 

If your organization or class is doing something interesting to celebrate Women’s History month and you think it might make a good story for The Quad, feel free to send us a tip at thequad@manhattan.edu

For those who celebrated, I hope you had a fun and safe Manhatty’s Day! On page ___ you’ll find a photo spread of Jaspers showing their pride amongst a sea of green. 

Listed below, you’ll find an official statement written by MC’s Train Club regarding the recent derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. This statement can also be viewed on the club’s instagram page, @m.c.trainclub. 

Please note that The Quad will not be publishing next week for spring break, so our next issue will be released March 21st. 

I hope you enjoy your spring break! Wherever your travels may take you, I hope you find some time to rest and recharge. We’ll see you back on campus soon.
