EDITORIAL: Have a great summer

Thanks for reading CM Life. This year was filled with notable events, make it a memorable summer


We did it, Chippewas.

We survived another academic year at Central Michigan University.

Whether you're spending your week at the library cramming last-minute for your hardest exam or beginning the dreadful process of hauling furniture from your apartment or dorm, take some time to reflect on everything that happened this year. 

We celebrated 125 years as a university, looking back at the years and events that helped us become the CMU we know today. 

We watched our sports teams excel — specifically the women’s basketball team that made history by heading to Spokane, Washington to play in the Sweet 16. 

Our president, George Ross, made the decision to step down. This semester, the CMU Board of Trustees launched a confidential search for the 15th president.

We also experienced tragedy. 

The double homicide that took place on March 2 in Campbell Hall brought a fear to this campus we had never known.

But, it also proved to us how well as a community — CMU and Mount Pleasant — can come together to overcome tragedy. 

Wherever you will be this summer — studying abroad, grinding at an internship or spending time at home with your family — just relax. Give yourself the time to sit back and recharge for the next school year. 

Come back in the fall feeling ready. Set your goals high for Fall 2018 and execute them.
