Letter from Editor-in-Chief: 2020-2021 Update

Hi, everyone!

My name is Abby Stone, and I will be serving as the Editor In Chief of The Rambler for the 2020-2021 academic year. The Transy community, along with the rest of the nation, is continuing to experience unexpected pressures and transitions due to the global pandemic. To adapt for the current academic year, Transy made the switch from a semester schedule (four classes for roughly three months) to a module system (two classes for seven weeks) where classes can be delivered either in-person, hybrid, or virtual.

Due to these changes, The Rambler will unfortunately be inactive for the forseeable future until January of 2021. Though The Rambler made the transition to completely digital three years ago, we are a student-run newspaper who is experiencing the accelerated impact to our academic environment the same as the majority of students within the Transy community. It has not been an easy transition, but we are adapting as best as we can and will dedicate our time behind the scenes to resume publishing before January if possible.

During this time, we wish all of you health and safety, and though it can be discouraging, there are ways to take care of your mental and physical health in times of quarantine and limited capacity. To all of our readers, the editorial staff and myself appreciate your understanding and dedication to The Rambler during this time. For any suggestions, questions, or concerns, email us at rambler@transy.edu!
