Editor’s Note: Accepting changes

Editor’s Note: Accepting changes

I don’t like change. I have never enjoyed the uncertainty and newness involved in navigating different situations. I like staying in a routine once I get comfortable with it and being content with what I have. Taking on this job as Editor-in-Chief of The Cord and moving on from another year of relative comfort into a bunch of new things […]

Editors Note: Graduating Goodbyes

Editors Note: Graduating Goodbyes

With the end of each school year comes a sense of catharsis. The weight of exams and school is lifted and the short break between the winter term and the start of either summer jobs or the summer semesters allows us to catch up on the things we’ve put on the back burner. For me, this year-end feels very different […]

Editor’s Note: Finding your place on campus

Editor’s Note: Finding your place on campus

Entering first-year can be overwhelming. From the first day you arrive at Laurier, you are inundated with people who are passionate about their purple and gold pride encouraging you to get involved, to try new things, and to take advantage of all that Laurier offers.  It’s no secret that Laurier holds a pretty specific stereotype amongst other universities — Golden […]

It’s so easy for us to […]

Editor’s Note: Peer pressure in post-secondary

Editor’s Note: Peer pressure in post-secondary

I have never been to Phil’s. Not hating — my brother went there a few times and my father did before him — just stating facts. It has become apparent that I might historically be the only Editor-in-Chief at this newspaper that never made a point of popping by there at least once. On that same note, my university experience […]

Editor’s Note: Elections engagement

Editor’s Note: Elections engagement

This Students’ Union election season has been the mildest and least exciting of all Students’ Union elections that I have observed in the past five years. With only one candidate for president and CEO, and with that candidate running a very thought out and well prepared campaign, the result seems inevitable. This year, there are only 15 students running for […]

Editor’s note: Time for a break

Editor’s note: Time for a break

It’s that time of year again. Students at Wilfrid Laurier University are locking themselves in their rooms to study for exams; finding a spot in the library seems next to impossible and before they know it, they’re packing up their belongings and heading back to their hometowns for the holidays. Collectively, you should all give yourselves a pat on the […]
