Third-year Cynthia (CJ) Esparza became the President of Whittier College — for a day. On April 9, Esparza participated in the President for the Day, where one Poet got to live a day in President Oubré’s shoes, and President Oubré walks in that Poet’s shoes.

Spring Break is a time for most students to leave their assignments at their desk and head out to the nearest beach or festival, without a worry on their mind. From March 16 – 25, many students left campus and enjoyed their well-deserved break with friends or family. However, not all of the student body were able to enjoy the warm sand or get a tan at the beach. Those playing for a Spring sport here at Whittier College had to get their tan playing two to three times a day and practicing in the sun for two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half hours a day.
