September Editor’s Letter

Layla M. Halterman (

Dear Ursinus Family, 

Ah, September! The summer festivities have come to a screeching halt. While (most) kids are sad, (most) parents feel relieved and elated. But now that we are slowly adjusting back into our familiar routines of school, work, and extracurriculars, what a great time to offer you a new and improved school newspaper. 

The Grizzly was given a much-needed facelift, nourishing a more traditional, retro look and feel. The paper will still cover four different beats – News, Features, Opinions, and Sports. But for your reading pleasure, we’ve added additional color, thinner paper, and more prominent headlines. Also, in order to reduce waste around campus and preserve mother nature, we have cut the number of copies printed by 22% percent. 

We’ve also added a subsection in our Features section called: A Bear Worth Knowing. 

This added addition helps further our diversity efforts, validating and advancing a variety of voices, especially those who are not often heard. 

Lastly, we are on a mission to tell the truth, in the most accurate, ethical, and compelling manner. We are proud to serve the Bear Community, and are psyched to hold true to that promise not just this year, but in the years to come. 

Yours truly,
