Letter From the Editor

Dear Patriots,

This week is International Week, which is one of the most important events that Mason holds. Mason is an incredibly diverse campus, and it is important to celebrate that. Whether you are celebrating your own culture or exploring someone else’s this week, get the most out of the experience, and be sure to try as many new things as possible.

In the pop culture scene of the world, Game of Thrones is back. By golly, I am not ready for this emotional rollercoaster.

In News this week, there is a piece about both Autism Awareness month and the organizations that work to support individuals with autism, such as Mason Autism Support Initiative (MASI). We also have stories in this issue about “Bafa’ Bafa’” culture, a profile on Mason’s swim club and an opinion on college-debt reform.

After taking a break from printing next week, we only have one issue of Fourth Estate  left. Hope you have enjoyed reading our paper as much as we have enjoyed working on it.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, send us an email at masonfourthestate@gmail.com, and someone more qualified than I will surely respond to you.
