UNIT-E

A LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Dear Reader, Welcome to the October issue of UNIT-E! It’s probably been difficult to get back into the school routine, but this issue hopes to lighten the load by including some informative articles (see: Academics column) and some more light-hearted articles in Chillax to take your mind off school matters. We hope this varied selection lets you cut loose a little because there’s always a book to read, a restaurant to visit or just something to do that ISN’T cramming for the SAT—although we can help with that too. Something else that deserves a spot on your radar is the Happenings column, which hopes to promote events happening around Beijing as well as promote student attendance and engagement with one of the most culturally dynamic and abundant cities in the world. Student events are also an important facet to us, and this month we’ve featured TEDx, an independently organized TED talk session. If you’ve got something that’s happened and that you want to spread the word about, feel free to email me at heather@unit-emagazine.org and we’ll definitely try to work it in. Lastly, there’s something that I noticed that I wanted to share. UNIT-E prides itself on representing a diverse group of students, something seen in any page through differences in formatting style, overall tone of the columns and most evidently, in the articles themselves. So it’s amazing—and coincidental—that two articles with opposing viewpoints on one topic as well as two articles with similar views on a matter landed in the Student’s Opinion column this month, so check them out and see what you think. Yours faithfully, Heather Budimulia P.S. We’ve now started to publish Chinese articles, head over to Chillax to read our first one!
