The Best of the Middlebury Campus: Nov. & Dec. 2017

By WILL DIGRAVIO

We are done! (For now.)

Last week, we published our final issue of the semester and I could not be more proud of our team and their work. Since our first issue of the semester, members of our editorial board and writing staff have worked hard to make our paper better each week. I am grateful for their hard work. I would specifically like to thank the members of our editorial board who will be leaving us next semester: local editors Rebecca Walker and Bridget Colliton, features editor Sarah Asch, and news editors Nick Garber and Kyle Naughton. Best of luck as you go abroad! We will see you next fall!

Now, please enjoy some fabulous work by our team! (Since we only publish once in Dec., I have included that issue as part of this post.)

Preface: It is my hope that our readership will use this monthly post to both rediscover old stories and find new ones they may have missed. Of course, most months I will probably leave out a piece that should have been included. It is important to note that I will be selecting stories more or less from memory, so I apologize in advance if I leave anyone out! I’m open to suggestions both before and after the post is published. Feel free to comment or email me at wdigravio@middlebury.edu. Also, there may be times when stories by me appear in this post. In those instances, I will have already reached out to another editor(s) to confirm that it belongs. If you disagree, also feel free to email me or comment! Also, a selection of an opinion piece does not imply endorsement of said piece.
