Shelly Le May 15, 2014

The morning I left for college is still a vivid memory to me. I woke up at 5 a.m. to catch my flight and hurriedly said goodbye to my mother, upset that she wasn't able to come to the airport to drop...

Letter from the Editor: Continue the Dialogue

Shelly Le January 30, 2014
Last semester, the Whitman campus engaged in a variety of critical discussions about race through public events like student panels on racism, and anonymously through the online website Whitman Encounters. As both an observer and a participant in these discussions, I’ve watched my fellow Whitman peers say countless, anonymous, hurtful things over the internet questioning or pointing out the actions or beliefs of specific individuals that do little to further discussions regarding race on campus.

This issue is a reflection of our thoughts and feelings over food. Our hope is that not only will you pick up this issue to not only read about our thoughts on this subject gaze at the photos that have captured beautiful moments in time, but to also use this issue as a chance to connect, discuss and reflect with other Whitman students on this very wide and varied topic. So, sit back and relax with a warm cup of tea in hand as you peruse through these pages.

Letter from the Editor: Mid-Semester Check-in

Shelly Le November 7, 2013
This is our ninth issue of the year, and while we've passed our halfway mark of the semester and of publication, now is a better time than any to reflect on the work we've done so far this semester. This period has been a time of tremendous growth and learning. While we've hired many returning staff, we've also hired a large group of eager first-years to fill positions as reporters, columnists, photographers, illustrators, production and advertising associates. Although this is my seventh semester working for The Pioneer, I still have a lot to learn with my position. During my short time as editor-in-chief, I hope to do a lot of things that maintain the high quality standards that have been set by editors-in-chief before me, while also forging new avenues.

The Pioneer has seen a lot of growth since I penned my first article, and this year I hope to continue this growth.

Letter from the Editor: Welcome back!

Rachel Alexander August 23, 2012
In high school, I was always that weird girl who couldn’t wait for summer to end. As much as I loved camp and days at the beach, some part of me always longed for textbooks and missed sharing my lunches with friends while we traded stories about the more ridiculous teachers.
