From The Editor
It has been a while since we brought you a physical copy of the paper, though our online content continued, was buzzing and receiving some attention while the faculty strike across Ontario College’s took place.
Now that we are fully back in action, we do hope you enjoy reading through this entire issue and maybe learn some valuable and interesting stories along the way.
First up, we have an overall recap and coverage of what the physical end of the strike means for students, staff and everyone it impacted. Our staff provided a number of news updates of the strike while it was happening, but now is the time to find out what happens next and more so, where does the financial aspect of the strike’s impact leave you? Our team gathered as much information as possible for this issue, to pass along to our readers. However, we will continue to include even more news as soon as it comes along.
We also have a few stories related to mental health, whether it be based on new nap pods on campus, or after-hour clinic sessions for post-secondary students.
The London Police Service (LPS) also makes a reoccurring appearance in this issue, first with a partnership with St. Joseph’s Health Care London to provide assistance to human trafficking victims, as well updates on break and enters close to Fanshawe and student housing areas.
We also have coverage of different campaigns across campus and in the city, as well as a film and video game review. Plus, one of our writer’s profiled a local and Music Industry Arts (MIA) band, while there’s also news of a new meditation class on campus. We also covered the success of the Student Wellness Centre’s fitness and wellness program director, Jodi Anderson-Carson, as she competed in the World Karate and Kickboxing Commission (WKC) World Championships.
With a variety of stories featured in this issue, we hope it keeps our readers informed, interested and busy until our next issue comes out Dec. 4.
