Letter From the Editor

Congratulations, you've reached page 84.  I hope you like what you see so far!  This is the second all color yearbook Niagara has ever had, and I hope it has not let you down.  Creating a yearbook is a lot more difficult than you might think.  The planning for this one started a year and a half before you received your copy.  Yearbook is a HUGE responsibility to take on, with a lot of time commitment and stress.  When you think about it, what other clubs on campus would get ridiculed if their club did not meet one month, or attend an event?  However, if the yearbook never came out, what would everyone think?

I once saw a t-shirt that said "Yearbook is a three-season sport."  You may laugh at this and make fun of me, but in the end it's true.  Most people I talk with are excited to see the yearbook when it comes out every year.  Without the hard work of the yearbook staff and advisors, there would be nothing to look forward to.  And what about when you look through the book and notice that you are missing from a photo?  I bet you feel at least a little disappointed that you weren't included.

We chose this year's theme, "we are niagara university" because we wanted to showcase each part of the book and the people in it.  Without all the submitted pictures and fun events everyone attended, we would have nothing to fill in on the once blank pages of this book.

I would like to thank Kim Zukowski, Director of Housing for all her help.  As the yearbook advisor, she gives us just the right amount of slack to do what we, the students, want with our book.  I would also like to thank Chris Smith of the Athletics Department for many of the athletics photos, and Bill Newton of Campus Activities, for many of the pictures from CPB events.

Most importantly, I would like to thank my staff for helping get everything done on time, with little or no mistakes!  Finally, thank you to everyone who submitted pictures and information, because without you guys, we would have nothing.

Congratulations to the Class of 2010, I hope this is one yearbook you can take with you the rest of your lives, and remember that you were once part of Niagara University!
