Well West Chester, it finally looks as though temperatures are taking a turn for the better.  And for the better, I mean upwards in the WARMER direction.  The number one complaint I have heard this past week dealt with the cold weather, with myself being a contributor. But now, perhaps outdoor activities can start up again, and stay.

Now that we are back from Spring break and half the semester has already passed, it is time to put our game faces on.  The semester still has several weeks of fight left in it, and as much as it pains me to say, we cannot relax quite yet.  There is quite a bit of work left to be done, now is not the time to slow down and call it quits on the semester, not quite yet.  Now is where things matter most, and truthfully, where people tend to lose sight of their goals – especially with the allure of warm weather knocking at our doorstep.

With warm weather comes even warmer, or should I say “red hot,” feelings over certain issues.  On a global scale, we have Russia’s incursion in the Crimea.  On a national scale, we have President Obama’s Affordable Health Care act topping six million signups. But here in Pennsylvania, we have the Senate Bill 1275 on our minds.  This proposed legislation would allow schools in PASSHE to leave the system and change to “state-related” status.

This issue reflects every student and faculty member here at West Chester, and I am interested in everyone’s opinions.  If you would like to write a piece for the newspaper or give a brief video interview, please email me at or Debate and discussion are nothing without varied opinions and ideas, and I encourage everyone to share them, whether you are a student or a faculty member, your thoughts are important.
