Editor’s Note

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind is a part of ourselves …” – Anatole France

To our fellow Sharks,

When tides shift and seasons change, there is often an element of wonder and excitement that comes with the adjustment. However, there also tend to be feelings of sadness that accompany the transition. For us, this is exactly the case, as we prepare to hand the baton over to the next co-editors-in-chief of The Current.

As we reminisce on the past year, we feel honored to know that you have trusted us to report the news, feature your stories and share your opinions. Thank you for participating in the discussions on campus, be it through writing an article, answering a weekly Shark Speak question, showing up to our meetings with your concerns or by reaching out to us through email or over the phone. It means a lot to know that our work mattered to you, our readers.

We’d also like to thank our staff for their diligence, often going above and beyond to serve the NSU population that we love so much. Thank you to our advisors Michelle Manley and Megan Fitzgerald-Dunn for their guidance and support. This would not have been possible without you.

Thank you to every NSU representative who agreed to take time out of your day to sit down with us for an interview, especially veterans like Daniel Alfonso, vice president of facilities management, and Aarika Camp, associate dean of student services and director of residential life and housing, whose offices we basically lived in this semester.

Of course, we couldn’t leave without helping to create one more issue — that tends to happen when you love what you do — so we hope that you’ll enjoy the Orientation Issue which publishes on May 15.

It was a pleasure and a privilege serving you.

With wishes for an amazing summer,

Michaela and Jenna
