Over the past few years, Klipsun has been a collection of assorted stories. For this issue, the editorial staff decided to return to a format of categories in order to introduce a more magazine-focused style. We wanted to inspire the staff writers to seek out meaningful stories for our readers. We encouraged them to find issues that affect people in our community, and stories that would be touching and compelling.

Our goal for Klipsun is to appeal to every reader by providing a diverse collection of stories, threaded together in uniting themes. We are leading this edition with three issue stories: the railroad blockades in Bellingham, transi­tional housing for the homeless and the James LaVine expulsion case. We hope to set a precedent for future editions where Klipsun writers tackle important local stories that concern not only Western students, but the Bellingham and Whatcom County communities beyond. We always welcome feedback from our readers.
