March 2015: Letter from the Editor

“The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.” — Albert Einstein 

You must be well underway with your classes by now and hopefully managing your time well. If there is one important thing I can stress to you after this month’s production of the Post, it’s time management. Keep your eye on those deadlines. You may think they are far away, but a month passes very quickly. Stay ahead of the game and be proactive. Your first major paper isn’t due until mid-March? DVR TGIT and watch it on Sunday evenings like I’ve been doing and get your paper out of the way now—your professor will thank you for it and so will you. Sure it’ll mess up your live tweeting game, but I promise you the Scandal and How to get Away with Murder cliffhangers will still be as awesome. In fact, there are certain tv shows that I don’t watch at all during the semester. I DVR them so that I can binge watch them as a reward at the end of the semester— just make sure to run past the water cooler with your fingers in your ears the morning after those shows air.

I hope you stayed warm through Octavia and whatever this frigid business was. I mean really, if I wanted to live in Alaska … but seriously, 30 minutes of exposure in this type of weather can lead to frostbite, so make sure that you are limiting your time outdoors when the temperature is in the single digits or dips below zero. Hopefully, you have winter coats that are appropriate for this weather, but if you don’t the MSA did a coat drive in December and I’m sure if you reach out to those folks, they’d be happy to refer you to their contacts to hook you up. Last thing we need is those digits so frozen they can’t type the aforementioned papers.

I think we have a great issue for you this month with lots of interesting content, including an update on the new library and two fabulous travel photo essays, each of which are on complete opposite ends of the spectrum to inspire you to make spring break or summer travel plans.

We’d love to hear from you! What are we missing? What do you want to see more or less of? Let us know! Please email me at Also, don’t forget to Like Us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@theUBPost), and subscribe to our newsletter (
