Letter from the Editors

Hello Patriots!

What can we say? Times are tough and things are changing. This global pandemic has reoriented life as we know it and the end isn’t in sight quite yet. School is different, work is different, meeting with each other is different — pretty much everything is radically different. And we’re going to try to be a little bit different this year too. 

We’ve made the decision to have Fourth Estate transition fully online for the foreseeable future. For the safety of you and our staff, we think it was the only choice. But we’re back in full swing this week and our staff will be doing what we have always done: creating content for Mason students. 

Though our newsstands will be empty, we aren’t leaving you, and we’re working as hard as we can to bring you what you want to read and also what you need to read. Times are tough for us all, but we’re here to stay. 

We work in your service so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us about any questions, comments or concerns by emailing masonfourthestate@gmail.com. Stay safe out there. 


Laura Scudder and Peter Njoroge
