With grey skies and cloudy days, fireworks and New Year cliches, January brings with it a bittersweet feeling.

To me, going into the spring semester brings with it the same feeling as beginnings and youth and New York City. A feeling I can only think to describe as an empty hope – anything is possible because you have nothing.

My spring semester is going to be filled with new experiences and responsibilities, and honestly, I am nervous about balancing it all.

I anticipate the times ahead to be unfamiliar, strange and challenging yet marvelous. I will continue to work towards my goals of increasing connections with the community and providing high quality content more pertinent to a college readership. With the help of my staff, I hope 2019 will bring the best “The Lion’s Roar” yet.
