Letter from the Editor

Today I woke up and it was snowing. It must be November.

Thankfully, we were blessed with a beautiful week leading up to Halloween and a plethora of exciting Halloween programming thanks to the fact that, gloriously, October 31st fell on a Friday this year.

 But, now, apparently, it’s time for winter. Leaves will fall down, pumpkin spice will fall out of flavor, and the snow will fly. Which, to be honest, doesn’t concern me too much—I’m a skier and the more snow we get, the sooner I can hit the slopes. 

Here at the Wire, we have an exciting update: we have completed our search for Design Editors and are excited to welcome Krittika Chatterjee ’18 (a Wire staff writer) and Josh Zaleznik ’17 to our editorial board, effective next week. We’re all looking forward to this; the Wire has lacked specially trained designers for a long time and we can’t wait to add them to our staff.

Amazingly, course registration for the spring semester is upon us. As I perused the course catalog in anticipation of my Monday registration slot, I was struck by how many incredible courses we have here at Wheaton and how few of them, in the grand scheme of things, I’ve been able to take in my four short years. I don’t regret what I have taken, but I’m sorry I didn’t have the chance to reach further outside my comfort zone.

With that said—in the registration bloodbath to come, may the odds be ever in your favor! And for you, first-years: don’t worry. Everything will work out. Gray cards and emails to professors are your friends.
