Letter From the Editor

Hello Campus Slate Readers,
A lot has changed in our area since we last published to you last month. For some of you, the month of November might have been a difficult time due to Hurricane Sandy.
This hurricane was projected in the forecast just days after our October publication was put on campus and it has created amount of change in each of our lives. Many of us here on Long Island went days without electricity among other usual everyday items that each one of us had to fight to get through that time without whether it was with a generator, flashlights, or by spending more time with your loved ones to get through this difficult battle together.
The hurricane did a lot of damage to the Tri State Area and as members of the media stated, this was our version of Hurricane Katrina. For me it was sad to see photos of damaged beaches here on Long Island that I grew up going to or even sites that we know from television such as Seaside Heights on the Jersey Shore. Through these next few months, everyone who was affected whether it was small as days with no electricity or crucial damages all have one thing in common which is to rebuild New York to what we all know it as. As Frank Sinatra once said, “this is the city that never sleeps” and it is what will help lead everyone to recovery and be as strong as ever especially as many families will come together this holiday season.
This month was also highlighted by a Presidential Election with Barack Obama being reelected for a 2nd term in the White House. We also have other campus news inside this month’s issue along with our sports section. I would also like to thank everyone who attended our Information Session Event and we hope you were more informed about our publication. The blog “That’s What She Said” is up and running every week on our website www.campusslate.com and I encourage everyone to go check it out.
