Letter From The Editor

Dear Patriots,

It’s that time of year when the weather is as unpredictable as getting a parking spot in Shenandoah. This is the NoVA charm: you can get all four seasons in one week.

This semester feels busier than most, between the robots scurrying around every corner to there being far fewer corners due to arbitrary construction fences. However, Spring Break is coming up soon, giving us all a much needed break.

This issue is important for us, as we are finally starting our partnership with NOVA Community College. This exciting venture will be great for both of our schools and add a lot of diverse content in future issues.

Also in this issue, look for our coverage of the Black Excellence Gala in Culture, Mason’s partnership with PARC in News, a look at profiles of two senior Women’s Basketball players in Sports and a variety of interesting takes in Opinions.

And, as always, reach out to us at masonfourthestate@gmail.com if you have any questions or comments.
