Dear Little one,

You’re going to carry burdens you’ll wish you never endured, nevertheless, your perseverance is why you’re here today. You kept your head up, and I’m proud of you.

You’re going to question a lot of things growing up. Preconceptions you’ve made as a child will show to be facades, but this isn’t meant as a trick or an act of deceit. The world is not as soft and caring as Mom tucking you in at night singing ‘You Are My Sunshine’ until you close your innocent eyes. You see, as you grow older, you’ll discover the world around you is what you make of it. It can be cold and scary, but what you have in store is a lifetime filled with adventure and jubilation.

Experience the ammeration of traveling to the islands and seeing clear Pacific waves crash into white sandy beaches. Climb Mount Everest and marvel at the beautiful curves of the land you walk on. Tour the seven wonders of the world, keeping in mind the thoughts of their creators, but create your own original thoughts. Initiate a context with people from backgrounds estranged from yours, and understand the different walks of life around you.

You’ll learn that people are nothing more than stories told from different perspectives. Listening to others’ stories will allow you to be yourself through the acceptance of diversity.

Every story has a beginning, middle and end. This is just your beginning.

Always take the road less traveled,

Love, not so little you.

By Bailey Klingaman – Digital Editor

I used to be ashamed of my Korean middle name, Meejin. In middle and high school, I would ask for my middle name not to be announced at award ceremonies and graduations. Throughout my life, I have promised myself that one day I would officially change my middle name. I’m happy to break that promise today.

Emergency campus Blue Lights are going blackout

Karissa Gaughan1851 Staff

As of Wednesday, April 27 the main Emergency Blue Light call box next to Carpenter House remains unfunctional. Many students on campus notice the big blue poles while walking around, and also notice that a piece of paper, once labeling it “Out of Order,’’ seems to have gone missing from the side at one point. It’s meant to instill a sense of safety in the campus community, but the campus Blue Light call boxes have a history of not working.
