Goodbye for the interim

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

When I came here in the fall of 2002, I knew that, as a transfer student, I would be way behind my classmates in both my coursework and experiences here at AU. Over the following two years, I have been able to rise from a contributing writer to editor in chief of this paper, which is truly the best in all of the D.C. area.

I could not have done this without the help of the editors here who believed in me and encouraged me to move on. I now leave this paper, better off because of my experiences and the relationships I have formed.

For those of you that remain, thank you all for everything you have done and will continue to do in the future.
