From the Editor

Letter from the Editor Week 3 Fall 2014

As we launch this, our third issue, Wheaton has finally settled down into the school-year routine. The public safety log grows shorter (thankfully). The campus, with a noticeable lull, prepares itself for the bright sun and chill air of autumn. My problems with releasing the pumpkin spice flavoring too early aside, I think fall is perhaps Wheaton’s finest season.

At the Wire, we have some new staff members and announcements. First and foremost, we have hired this year’s crop of copy editors, and it is a pleasure to welcome Jillian Gabriel ’15, Emily Bergmann ’16, and Taylor Matook ’16 to our editorial ranks. They’re bringing eagle eyes and a finely tuned attention to detail with them to help make our paper look the best it can, each and every week.

We are also hiring a photography editor. If you have an interest in photography and would like to apply — or get more information — send me an email (

And finally, we’re officially launching our search for design editors, who will take over the layout of the paper each week, leaving our section editors to focus more fully on content, structure, and style. If you, or anybody you know, have graphic design experience and wish to be considered for the position, please get in touch.

My Managing Editor, Tyler Vendetti, and I had the pleasure of sitting down with President Hanno last week, and we’re excited to announce that he has agreed to follow up his welcome to students in our first issue with semi-regular contributions to the Wire. You’ll be hearing more from him in coming weeks.

In the meantime — enjoy the fall weather. We’ll see you ’round.
