Hello students,

I hope you enjoy our October issue! As you can see, our publication is still called The Saber – but we are working on that. As you may have seen in our previous issue or on our social media, we have discovered the unsavory origins of our publication’s name and are dedicated to changing it. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to weigh in on this issue.

Our current goal is to debut a new name for the Spring 2021 semester. This gives us time to pick a great new name (and we are still open to suggestions for that!) and take care of the more tedious changes that go with that. Thank you so much for your patience, and as always we have open ears.

Additionally, I am extremely happy and grateful to announce that The Saber won the 2020 Pacemaker at the online Associated Collegiate Press Convention this weekend! This award is considered the Pulitzer of college press, and I could not be more thrilled for our staff. We received this honor for our March 2020 issue. I would also like to share that both our Layout Editor Jade Thornton and our Visual Editor Luka Steele have received honorable mentions for cartoon of the year! I could not be more proud of the work that our staff has done.

Now, this issue is a little different. The Saber staff is fully embracing October and all of its Halloween goodness. The holiday is a favorite of ours and we are so excited to be able to offer some fun and creative content this month.

That being said, please stay safe this haunted season. The global pandemic continues to loom over us, and it is the responsibility of each person to make sure they are protecting themselves and anyone else they come into contact with. Luckily, we have some solutions for a safe Halloween in, as well as some mask-oriented costumes!

Take some time to have fun this month. Midterms are hectic and this entire year has been rough on students and faculty alike, but it is important to set aside time for yourself.

Along with everything else, please VOTE. It is a small, passive action that should be accompanied by others if you are looking for real change, but it is an important one nonetheless.

Stay safe, cougars.
