November is almost here and we find ourselves on the brink of winter. Soon enough the snow will be falling and these beautiful fall days will be a thing of the past.

Take the time to enjoy the changing leaves and look around campus. There are a lot of exciting events that just wrapped up and a lot to look forward to.

Saturday marked the end of sustainability week. Led by students, this event stressed the importance of the responsible generation and usage of energy and sustainable food systems. Through lectures, celebrations and academic seminars, the campus came away from the week with a deeper appreciation of the world around us and our responsibility for preserving it.

Some of the events on the horizon on campus include the rapidly approaching basketball season, Christmas on Campus and Thanksgiving.

We’re ecstatic about the energy on campus. We feel that the levels of student participation here are at an all-time high and see our community ties growing richer every week.

In addition to all of that, this week is Love Your Body Week all around the world. Flyer News believes that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin. College is a great place because it allows students to express themselves however they want to, so this week give yourself a pat on the back and be confident in whatever you do.

A common trend this semester is that students have been vocal about issues they’re passionate about. We are making our voices heard. So if you have an opinion about an issue on campus we invite you to share it with us.

Sometimes to make a difference in the community you have to speak up.
