Editor’s Letter 10/14


Hello again readers,

Welcome back for our refresh for October 14th!

We’ve now hit the halfway point in the semester and with that comes tons and tons of exams and papers. Just make sure not to be like me and wait till the last minute to do your assignments and have to stay up all night as a result (seriously not fun). Regardless of my bad personal decisions, I hope you all are staying sane as the semester starts to heat up.

We also have some excellent news! Our next refresh will be physical! Yes, that’s right the Halloween print edition is returning this year so be sure to keep an eye out around campus for it. It will be out on October 31st. 

On that note. I must again thank all of our staff for the amazing work they have been doing. I know it must be getting old hearing me do this every refresh but they have been pulling out all the stops and have been stepping up every refresh. Even though we are running on a tighter deadline for the print edition, they have done an incredible job this time and have delivered our largest one yet for this semester.

Without further ado, here is what’s in store in this very loaded and very diverse refresh. 

Fatimah Bouri covers a Friday Forum that recontextualizes many of the passages in the Bible used against the LGBT community to debunk many of the misconceptions behind those passages.

Liz Kameen covers the most recent USG meeting.

Liz Kameen covers the Down on Diet Culture lecture and the negative effects of diet culture.

Evan Yandrisovitz gives a profile on English professor and comic book guru, Jeff McClelland.

Colby Robertson gives a rundown on Moravian’s RISE program.

Sara Rice covers the start of Moravian’s cross-country team’s season.

Ana Faisetty introduces her new column on relationship advice.

Sabrina Moody continues her Meanwhile in Ireland series now covering the Tailteann Games, the predecessor to the Olympics.

Lola Offenback continues the Commuter Corner by discussing time management for commuter students.

I give a spotlight on Moravian’s newest political science professor, Dr. Samuel Rhodes.

I start a new series where I criticize recent supreme court decisions with this week’s entry being the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

I review 2021’s “The Suicide Squad.”

Joel Hendricks reviews the game, “Miitopia.”

And finally Sabrina Moody starts her short story series, Sigmund and Beaumont.

Before I sign off: if you’re interested in joining The Comenian please join us at our meetings, which take place every Wednesday at 5 pm in Zinzendorf Hall, room 100.

The Comenian supports a wide range of content, so if you want to interview students around campus, you can. If you want to make video essays you can. If you want to make short comics, you can. Whether you want to write about news, politics, music, movies, sports, video games, food, history, or anything else, I guarantee you will have a place here.

Your editor-in-chief,
