Welcome back to campus everyone! I hope everyone had a great summer and good luck on the year ahead of us.

As a quick introduction, I’m Marie and I’ll be your Editor-in-Chief this year. I’ve spent my time in The Grizzly covering everything from the arts to investigative journalism pieces as well as making some puzzles here and there. When I’m not writing for the Grizzly or doing physics homework, you can find me playing the drums, writing fiction, or working out. I also love digital art and cross stitch and am in the process of planning out a new piece. I’m an avid tea drinker though most recently I got into espresso.

The Grizzly serves as a place to highlight student voices on campus, whether that is through showcasing what we do, what we think, what we care about, and more. This is a place for students to learn about what is happening on campus outside of their own sphere as well as celebrate the really cool things happening on campus. It’s a place where students can make change. Most of all, this paper is literally composed of student voices, highlighting them by default.

If you’re interested in writing for the Grizzly, whether that just may be for one specific article or something long-term, reach out to the Grizzly email (grizzly@ursinus.edu) and let us know or speak to an editor. We also have a team of photographers and have been known to include comics and puzzles in the paper.

I’m looking forward to this year ahead. There is much planned for The Grizzly and I hope you enjoy reading along.
