Senior Columns 2016-2017

Dear readers,

During this final week of production, the Op/Ed pages of the Massachusetts Daily Collegian will be publishing the final columns of the graduating senior staff.

As another year nears its end, nostalgia creeps its way into our minds and begins to play a slideshow of memories. Suddenly, everyday objects previously overlooked, elicit sentimental feelings. One hundred and twenty-seven years of memories saturate the walls of the Daily Collegian, leaving us to wonder what sorts of untold stories would the walls tell us, if they could talk. Sadly, the walls can’t talk.

But we can. So instead, our seniors share snippets of their experience at the Collegian and throughout their years of college. These individuals dedicated their time here telling the stories of the myriad of people that make up this community. This week, they get to tell their own.
