This issue, will be our last physical copy of the paper before the holiday break, but it is one filled with a number of hard hitting news stories, as well as some well thought out opinion pieces, easy read lifestyle stories and a number of sports related content, among other things.
First off in the news section, student should be on the lookout, since there have been over 40 charges made in regards to break and enters and a variety of assaults happening around the city, with student housing areas being a targeted hotspot for these crimes.
Next up, we have a few updates in relation to the student responses from the aftermath of the strike that happened across Ontario Colleges. This includes a closer look into the Student Support Fund and why student unions have joined together to ask the Ontario government for more fairness and help for all, rather than what is currently being given to them. Another story deals with a potential student walk-out on Dec.15, something student union groups (including the Fanshawe Student Union (FSU)) are not associated with.
This issue also covers a few faculty and Fanshawe community members who each recently won specific awards for their remarkable service in their field and at the College, while a Fanshawe student also had her recipe chosen to be featured in a London cookbook.
Moving along, another one of our reporters spoke with a Fanshawe Music Industry Arts (MIA) formed band, Lost In Japan, about their musical journey thus far. This issue also includes a number of sports stories, including a recap of how the men’s volleyball team is ranked fifth nationally, while other Fanshawe members and curlers are competing in the 2017 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Championships.
Since this is the holiday issue of the paper, we’ve also included a number of holiday features and gift guides of all sorts, to help you find that perfect item for the people in your lives. The coloured holiday pages and cover are eye-catching and surely not something to be missed.
This issue should keep you busy reading over the next couple of weeks, until our next issue hits newsstands on Jan. 8.
Until then, have a wonderful holiday break. Happy New Year!
