Dear Readers,
I hope you’re enjoying the beginning of the fall weather this past week! The fall festivities have come back in full swing. I hope you find some time to relax with
friends and enjoy the cool weather, whether you’re on or off campus.

As you may have noticed recently, many of our stories have included information about various clubs and organizations around campus that have faced budget cuts this academic year. Unfortunately, The Quad was no exception to these cuts. While we continue to operate mostly in a digital format, we have once again opened up a gofundme as a continuous fundraising effort to try to see more than just one or two of our issues in print this semester. Any amount donated will go towards our club budget and is greatly appreciated by the whole staff. You can donate to our gofundme here.

For my fellow members of the class of 2024, have you stopped habitually avoiding the senior walk on the quad yet? Has the bitter-sweet taste of being a senior in college Sunk in yet? It seems only this past week I’ve realized that the slew of the “Jasper lasts” begins in the fall. Kinda spooky when you think about it, but more on that later…

If you haven’t already, I highly encouraged students to get involved and join a club or activity that interests them. It’s never too late to pick up a hobby or try some-
thing new and there is truly no better way to meet new people and enrich your learning experience beyond the classroom than getting involved on campus. You never know what you might learn about yourself or about others.

If your club or class has an event that you would like to see covered by The Quad, always feel free to email us at thequad@manhattan.edu. We’re always happy to en-
gage with our readers and learn about new potential pitches.

As always, thank you for supporting student newsrooms and being an active and informed member of the Jasper community. We hope you enjoy this weeks issue of
The Quad and we’ll see you next week for more!
