A word from the editor: Summer Magazine


Annie Goodman / The Lion's Roar

Summer! What a wonderful time of year. The days get longer, the sun gets hotter, and best of all your free time increases. So I’ve heard at least. 

I have been very busy since school let out, and things are not going to slow down any time soon. However, I am not going to let that stop me from enjoying the next couple of months. 

With the academic year being August to May, summer is a time of new beginnings, reinvention and planning. All the stress from the previous semester  flies away as you plan to prevent that same stress from happening again next semester. 

Whether you are an incoming freshman, a jaded junior, a soon-to-be senior or any other level collegian, you are taking this time to prepare for the next step in your life.

Whatever you need to prepare for, I hope this magazine can help. 

With success stories of real-life students and alumni, summer-themed opinions and stories about planning for the future, this magazine just might inspire you to make some goals and achieve them. 

Time management is the single most valuable skill in my opinion. If you can balance your time properly, you can achieve anything. That is the bright and optimistic feel I wish to convey with this publication. 

Here at The Lion’s Roar, we will be working all sumer long to prepare for the 2019-2020 school year to improve our writing, photography, layout and social media. I already have my to-do lists printed out and ready to go!

Do not let this summer pass you by. As you read about the amazing things your classmates have achieved, think about what you are wanting in life and go after it. As I said, summer is a time for new beginnings, reinvention and, most importantly, planning.
