Dear West Chester,
I hope all is going well with classes so far! It’s crazy that three weeks have already flown by; before we know it, it will officially be fall (I know I personally can’t wait). Fall is my absolute favorite season: cool breezes, burnt-colored leaves, chunky sweaters and scarves, the aroma of coffee and hot chocolate, pumpkin patches and haunted houses. Fall just has something special about it (PLUS who doesn’t love Halloween?).
Anyways, make sure to check out some of the wonderful articles we have running in the paper this week! If you’ve ever been interested in studying abroad, check out Hannah Tollen’s article on page 7 about the Study Abroad Fair that occurred this past Wednesday. In addition, check out a new column that has been added to Features: new feats in science and how they relate to West Chester by Abbey Bigler on page 9! This week’s article talks about how the Zika virus could potentially be used to treat aggressive brain cancer.
I’d like to wish you all continued luck as you maneuver your way through school—freshmen and seniors alike. West Chester has so many great opportunities, so make sure to be staying up to date on all the latest happenings right here in The Quad!
