Letter from the EICs
BY JASMINE WU '22 & REBECCA ZHANG '22
Mmmmmmm, is that the sweet scent of blooming flowers? Oh wait, it’s just the (equally scrumptious) fragrance of The Spectrum’s Spring Issue!
As we muddle through New England’s hormonal weather fluctuations, this spring marks significant change. From our school’s new mask-optional policy to shifts on the world stage, adaptation looms ahead of us. But while change often feels daunting, it characterizes our society and fosters its resilience: it pushes us to adapt and grow.
This issue, let’s dive into this new—and relevant—theme: adaptation. Six Mainspread articles eagerly await your attention and affection! Does convergent evolution tingle your scientific side? Boogie over to page four and explore different forms of evolution. Or, do you prefer investigating the power of language? “The Need for Language Adaptation” on page five is your new best friend! In othersections, you can also discover the best local cafe (Cafe Nero >>>>>>>>) and confront your relentless habits (golly jeepers, stop drinking coffee instead of sleeping, Rebecca). And, of course, don’t forget the crossword on page twelve!
So in between classes, take a moment to splash through some puddles, smell the budding flowers (or the melting snow…), and mosey through a copy of this issue.
Lots of love <3
Jasmine and Rebecca
