Thank you for reading our paper; we couldn’t make it without your support. Try new things this semester, stretch your wings and let yourself grow — but remember that The Sun will appear every day, and you always have a home within our pages.


THIS ISSUE MARKS THE END of another semester at Cornell, and we mark the end of Sun print issues until August. As our writers, editors and designers head into final exams, we bid adieu to long days chasing stories and late nights of layout. We look forward to a well-deserved break and look back on all we’ve accomplished this semester. The Sun’s 140th editorial board has grown into a creative, curious and confident group, defined by ambitious projects and a strong dedication to community. We’ve come a long way from our first nights grappling with InDesign and learning the ropes of new editorial positions.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR: Shining Ever Brighter

This past Saturday, The Sun ended six weeks of training by electing a new cohort of editors. The 140th board, full of energy and excitement, now embraces the time-honored commitment to band together and make The Sun shine. My talented peers have demonstrated boundless curiosity, persistent optimism and a dedication to quality journalism throughout training, and I firmly believe that we’ve placed The Sun into good hands. It has been my greatest honor to learn from them and work alongside them these past few weeks, and I’m grateful for a coming year of fruitful collaboration. As we navigate the lasting effects of the pandemic, we push forward with courage and hope for a better-informed, reconnected community.
