The latest issue of The Quindecim has been distributed around campus.

This issue is the best evidence this year of how far we’ve come since last. We’ve established credibility as a source of news through the first four issues, and we’ve now become something that people expect and look forward to every two weeks.

Issue 5 is comprised of 20 pages of  well-written, informative articles and beautiful photographs. More importantly, we reported on the biggest stories of the year. These aren’t about famous speakers who visited campus or huge plans for new building renovations. Rather, they’re about issues that directly affect students on a daily basis.

I urge Goucher students to pick up The Quindecim, educate yourselves with the facts, and contribute to the campus conversation.

We worked harder on this issue than on any other this year, and I’m extremely proud of my Editors and staff for producing such a great product. There are some mistakes which some members of my staff have brought to my attention.

As the Editor-In-Chief, I take full responsibility for those mistakes, and I sincerely apologize.

That being said, what’s most important is that the the facts published in this issue are accurate and verified. What matters most is that right now, we as students have some larger, more important problems in our community to fix.

The Quindecim remains dedicated to doing their part in helping to do so.

I wish we could have every Monday and Tuesday be vacation days.

Last week was our fall break, so the campus was quiet for several days. Luckily for us, our press deadline was Wednesday, so we were able to use that time off from class to work on The Quindecim during normal hours.

It’s amazing how a clear mind and sufficient hours of sleep affect one’s productivity. We worked for several hours during the day on Monday and Tuesday, and finished the paper more quickly than any other issue this year.

I’m very pleased with the content of this issue, but there’s always room for improvement. I think that so far, the main stories we’ve run are the ones that people at Goucher expect to see. I’m excited for Issue 5 to come together because the stories we have planned to run are much more out of the ordinary.
