Goodbye, farewell, adios

By Jenifer Jaffe

It’s difficult to believe an entire year has flown by and my time as editor-in-chief of the Logos is nearing its end.

Although I feel the time has come and gone in the blink of an eye, so much has happened in my life in a year’s time.

Last May, I nervously walked into a conference room in Marian Hall Student Center to interview for the position. I remember several pairs of eyes watching me intently as I sat at the head of a very long rectangular table. I took a deep breath and swallowed the rock in my throat before answering several questions that were thrown my way. I was elated to receive the call I was the newest leader of UIW’s newspaper.

My experience as the editor taught me so much. I learned to collaborate and communicate effectively with creative and intelligent people, to meet deadlines, lead meetings, and problem-solve. My knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop and webpage applications improved immensely.

However, the best part of being a part of the Logos family was cultivating friendships with some of the most interesting, funny and bright people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

I am so thankful and so proud to have been given the privilege of serving the university as Logos editor-in-chief. Although my time here is over, the memories will unquestionably last a lifetime. I hope everyone has a magnificent summer. Goodbye, farewell to all.
