EDITOR’S NOTE: Protect the environment, it’s all we have

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

South Florida is a tropical paradise, for now.

If we’re not careful, our homes could go under water, our coral reefs could disappear and we might lose one of the most diverse and important ecosystems in the world: The Everglades.

It sounds drastic, but it’s the future some say is coming. Will it be as bad as they say? Hopefully not, but it might depend on our generation’s actions towards the beautiful environment we live in.

As you look through our theme pages, you’ll find profiles and articles on members of our University community who are working to raise environmental awareness to new discoveries are University is making.

We also have updates regarding FIU’s hotel and alumni center, as well as the primary results of the 2019-2020 Student Government Association Elections.

Before I end this Editor’s Note, I want to say thank you to our faithful readers. It has been a pleasure working for Student Media these past four years and serving as PantherNOW’s 2018-2019 Editor-in-Chief.

While I’ll save most of my goodbyes for next week’s graduation column, I want to say thank you. The people I’ve met, the experiences I’ve had and the memories I’ve made on this journey are priceless.

So thank you and I hope you continue following PantherNOW even once you graduate. I know I will.
