For many, arriving in Whatcom County is just one step along the path­ way to a higher education. Fall brings fresh faces to Western to become part of the ever-growing student body, but even those who aren't new may still find some things to learn.

This issue of Klipsun Magazine tackles life in Whatcom County from cof­fee to surviving college, local heroes to area attractions. There is even a photo challenge to test your knowledge of the surrounding community. We sought to provide a glimpse into our corner of Washington, teaching amateurs some tips while providing new insights to those who are a bit more established.

Life is about overcoming obstacles, learning lessons, trying new things, exploring the world around you and having fun. In these pages, I hope we have shown even a glimmer of that.

In the five years I have been at Western, I have found the best educa­tion exists not necessarily in textbooks or even physics class, but in the decisions we make and their outcomes. We live in a beautiful place, so explore it. In the words of the great Ferris Bueller,"Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
