The Purchase Independent, issue 246 available online now!
I am so proud of this issue. It’s our first 16 of the semester, thanks to two incredible personal accounts of Purchase students who were arrested at Occupy Wall Street.

Tom and I high-fived multiple times and hugged twice during the creation of this issue. The first hug was because Christie’s OWS story was exactly, down to the line, 4 columns long. It was the first story we placed in the layout and it seemed like a sign, that the issue was going to go well. (I ended up putting a photo with the story and extending it beyond a spread, but still.) The second hug was when we had the final proof printed, because we did it!
