Alas, it is that time again, as that damned scourge we call examinations rears its ugly head once more.
Of course, this means that like yourselves, the editorial team will be busy mugging away in the quiet corners of the library. It also means that while we attempt to perform mental gymnastics to the tune of Alexander Wendt, the Gazette will be pressing pause for the academic year.
But not before a final curtain call.
For the past six months, the Gazette has attempted to service SIM’s student community in all things international affairs. We have covered a gamut of topics ranging from cybersecurity to trade, and even the history of the Japanese occupation.
We have also spoken to current students and alumni alike in a bid to find out about the professional world of international affairs, and bring that information to you the reader.
It brings us great pleasure to note that response to our All in a Day’s Work and Weekly Recap columns have been overwhelmingly positive. We thank you for the support. Our takeaway is that students find such resources useful, and we look to continue that good work in the next academic year.
However, we also acknowledge the need to improve in other areas, like the diversity of our content and the frequency with which it is delivered. This we promise to work on, while maintaining an uncompromising approach to quality and accuracy.
To be sure, this pause is only temporary. We’ll be back in June, with a larger editorial team and more quirky articles (and maybe videos) to alleviate your post examination withdrawals.
With that, it’s time to head back to the books. See you on the flip side.
