Greetings, readers from the Fanshawe community and beyond. Welcome to the 2019 Holiday Issue of Interrobang.

It’s been a hot minute since our last issue, but I’m pleased to report that our news section includes several glad tidings from the time between then and now.

First off, Fanshawe’s own music industry arts instructor Dan Brodbeck has earned a Grammy nomination for his engineering and co-writing work on The Cranberries’ final album, In The End. As a Cranberries fan I’m ecstatic to see how closely connected the College is to one of the greatest alt-rock bands of the past three decades. Congratulations, Dan!

Other news includes reporter Emily Stewart’s coverage on how Atlohsa’s Family Healing Services is working to aide those experiencing homelessness in London. As the weather turns colder, please consider donating a winter coat and blanket to a drive ran by Atlohsa along with Fanshawe’s Institute of Indigenous Learning between December and January. You can drop off your donations at the designated box in A1047.

We also have an update on the Student Choice Initiative, which has been officially deemed unlawful by the Ontario Divisional Court. This news comes weeks after province-wide colleges and universities adjusted their funding in accordance to the now defunct directive, so what happens next remains to be seen. Since we’re not publishing again until the New Year, any upcoming developments will be posted online at

In lifestyles, this issue is crampacked of several holiday-themed features written by our wonderful student writers and freelancers. Take a peak between your study sessions to jump-start your holiday spirit!

We also have a piece on how healthcare students are at risk of neglecting their own self-care, especially at this time of the year. You guys — you can’t take care of others until you take care of yourselves, so please get plenty of rest and water. The holidays will be here soon; just a few more weeks and you’ll be drinking eggnog in front of the latest Netflix holiday rom-com before you know it.

That’s it for now. Thanks so much for reading, and be sure to keep tabs with us on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

Happy Holidays!
