  • This Thanksgiving, I am incredibly thankful for the new friends I’ve made here at Lakeland, the adventures we’ve all had and the wonderful community members I’ve had the honor of volunteering with this past year. Looking back on 2018, it’s been both a memorable year and one of much change. The memories, my new friend, and the hard work of those from my own community keep me going. I don’t know what 2019 will entail, but I’m looking forward to it. Happy Thanksgiving, Muskies! -Dominique Lee, Staff Reporter

  • Well, seeing as the universe is an awfully big place, I’d say I’m thankful that, in some small corner of it, conditions happened to be hospitable enough to let a few stray particles of stardust get together and form things like birds and trees and all the necessary components for “Twilight Zone” marathons and punk rock shows, not to mention myself and a few dozen cool people nice enough to tolerate me. In short, I’m grateful for all the pretty anomalies and happy accidents that make the world a cool place to live… and for you, dear reader, because you’re gorgeous. -Marco Romantini, Staff Reporter

  • This year, I’m thankful for the wonderful people I’m lucky to know. I’m grateful for my family both near and far. I’m thankful for my friends, all of whom I’m lucky enough to know. I’m thankful for the wonderful opportunities I’ve been given this year, and for those who have given them to me. I’m thankful for my education, my professors and classmates who make class time interesting. I’m thankful for my work experiences and my wonderful colleagues. Most of all, I’m thankful for another year on this earth with all of you. -Scarlett Archuleta, Editor-in-Chief

  • This Thanksgiving is a bit different for me, as I have been gone from home for almost seven months with only a week of seeing my family. I am looking forward to seeing everyone and just being around a group of people that genuinely have love for me. I am thankful that I have the family that I have and that we are close. There were times before where family wasn’t talking to certain people in the family. This year, everyone is communicating with everyone and just showing everyone love. Also, my mother finally moved back from Columbus, Ohio and is back in Chicago, Ill. This makes me happy because she can be around more for family events and I do not have to drive six plus hours just to see her and my youngest brother. I believe this Thanksgiving will be one to remember, from the memories made to the food made. I look forward to the amount of fellowship that will be happening. -Donte Rowell, Visual Media Editor

  • I’m thankful for the work that’s kept me busy and the art and oddities that inspire me. -Luke Ulatowski, Editor-in-Chief

  • I am thankful for my family. They’re always there for me when I need them. No family is perfect, but mine is pretty close. -Desiree Bass, Podcast Editor

  • I am thankful for my ups and downs in life because they have created who I am today. Everything I have endured over the course of 21 years has molded me into the person I am, and for that, I am thankful. I am thankful for my mistakes and my triumphs in life because they have taught me many lessons. -Madison Schweitzer, Print Layout Editor

  • I am thankful for people in the police, fire and EMS systems that miss spending Thanksgiving with their families to keep us safe. I am thankful for the doctors who provide care to all those who are too sick to be around family during the holidays and for the farmers who work day ‘til night, day after day, to provide the food on my table. I'm thankful for my family pushing me to be who I am today. I'm thankful to wake up every day and to be able to have the opportunity to see everyone's smiling faces. That is what I'm thankful for. -Grace Daehling, Staff Reporter
