An Open Letter To My Odyssey Team

Thank you for everything.

An Open Letter To My Odyssey Team
Sarah Strum

Dear Wooster Odyssey Content Creators,

I just wanted to drop in and say thank you! As Thanksgiving approaches, I have been thinking more and more about the groups in my life that I am thankful for, and one of the stand-outs is our Odyssey community. There are so many things that make me grateful to be your Editor-in-Chief, and this letter only scratches the surface! So, I just want you to know that I am thankful for how you...


Through your personal stories that you share on our platform, and the way you support each other - I am constantly inspired. It is so nice to see how deeply you care about your various interests and each other. Even though we did not all know each other before joining Odyssey, we have become our own little community and I am proud of how we encourage each other.


Although you may not realize it, you all encourage me to be even bolder in my writing and not to be afraid of expressing my opinions or being controversial. You encourage me in our little conversations when we venture to talking about topics not Odyssey related. You’re daring, and I admire that.

3. TRUST me

The role of an editor-in-chief can not be done successfully if there is not a sense of trust between the editor and the writers.Thank you for trusting me. Trusting me with your words, your stories, and your ideas. Thank you for relying on me to get the job done while maintaining the integrity and nobility of all your work.

4. TEACH me

You guys know so much! With the wide-range of interests and perspectives that exist in our community, I have learned so much about topics I would have never known before. I have learned about biology, movies, cities, baseball, ecosystems, religion, vegan eating, novels and so much more!


Thank you for giving me the opportunity to do something I love. I was so scared to start the Odyssey community at Wooster and did not know if it would even be successful. But, because of all of you it has been one of the most rewarding things I've done during my college career.

I will be forever thankful for all of you and what you do!

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.

Summertime is only 93 days of the year, Find something to do!

There is so many opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the season before the snow starts to come back. Here are 25 interesting dates that are doable almost anywhere for any age.
