Welcome back Fanshawe students, staff, faculty and community members to another issue of the Interrobang.

This week, my team and I bring to you a selection of interesting, newsworthy and neat stories that will surely catch our readers’ eyes.

To start off, we have news of two break and enters that happened over the Thanksgiving weekend in student housing units close by to Fanshawe College. Our team spoke with the London Police Service as well as a Fanshawe student who lives in the area about these incidents.

This issue also covers a miracle of a story where a Fanshawe co-ordinator spoke with the Interrobang and recounted the experience her and her friends had, while in Las Vegas when the terrible tragedy occurred at the beginning of the month.

With this issue being the sustainability and waste reduction issue, we also focused on a number of environmental stories that show how the College is helping to save our planet, as well as general ways in which society can help reduce and prevent harm to our planet. From recreating new clothes by reusing textiles, to limiting the way we make coffee, these small changes can help make a larger impact to the environment.

This issue also highlights some great feel good stories on success, including one about a Fanshawe prof who found his calling and has worked on a number of programs including the Trailer Park Boys along with his own projects for CTV and CBC. A London community member created a new stamp to be used at Canada Post with some of the proceeds going towards charity, and our team also has an update on the potential Oct.16 strike across 24 Ontario Colleges.

Add in a number of music, film and TV reviews, a band profile, a fitness article and an opinion section and you’re almost set to go.

Last, but not least, we have a sports profile on Fanshawe Falcons soccer champion Sheree Uyl, a London Knights game recap and a car review. This issue will surely keep you occupied until the next one hits newsstands on Oct. 23.

Happy Reading
