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!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
