Autumn is the season of transition at Western. A new academic year embarks, and the accompanying anxiety and excitement consumes university life.

New students curiously walk the campus, helping each other navigate the unfamiliar environment. Old friends meet and catch up on the events of summer. Days become shorter, and the colors of Bellingham change.

Klipsun is also in transition. The magazines format has changed to embody shorter features and increased visual content. Inside this issue, readers will discover a great range of transitions that Western students and members of the greater Western community experience.

I encourage sports fans to read Shannon Barney’s story about a former Western athlete’s progression to playing in the NFL. Those interested in politics should read Chris Taylor’s interview with RFK Jr., or Chrystal Doucette’s story about a Western stu­dent who survived cancer because of a stem cell transplant.
