EDITOR’S NOTE: Settle in to life on campus

Michelle Marchante Editor in Chief of FIU Student MediaMichelle Marchante/Editor-in-Chief

Now that everyone is settling into their classes, it’s time we turn to one of the most challenging aspects of a college student’s life: living on their own.

Our pull-out magazine “Livin’ in the dorms” focuses on different aspects of residential life from what it takes to be a residential assistant to whether you should live on campus or not to get the full college experience.

If you turn to page 10 you’ll also see what one of the residents at the Bayview dorms in the Biscayne Bay campus does to keep herself from falling into the same routine.

Now, for our regular content you’ll want to make sure to check out our article on the Student Government Association and how they’re facing old problems from last semester.

You’ll also want to see page 12 for our exclusive interview with Tymell Murphy— a University alumni who is now playing basketball professionally in Asia. It’s an interview you don’t want to miss.

And in our Opinion section our columnist Gabriella Pinos writes about how real millennial burnout is and its relation to the college struggle.

Our editorial this week also hits a controversial topic:

Florida’s new Governor Ron DeSantis has suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for how he handled the 2017 shooting at Fort Lauderdale International Airport and last year’s Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, FL. Give it a read and let us know your thoughts on Twitter @_PantherNOW. 

And on a lighter note, Student Media is saying goodbye to Assistant News Director Gerard Albert III this week. He’s recieved a new opportunity in New York City and while we will miss him we’re also excited to see where his career will take him.
