“I hope Roger Taylor makes unscheduled visits.”

“We could implement a naptime, turn SMC into a giant ballpit and have lots of lutes and ukuleles.” — Samantha Paul, Copy Editor

“The caf can serve macaroni and cheese more often.”

— Anna Meier, Co-News Editor

“There could be direct flights offered into Galesburg.”
