If you've already picked up this month's issue of The Orbis, I hope you enjoyed all of our interesting and progressive pieces. If your one of those people who haven't, I highly recommend picking it up on the way to class or checking it out online: The Orbis.
For those who don't know what The Orbis is let me do a little explanin'. The Orbis is the progressive student paper we have here on campus at Vanderbilt University. It is written by students and for students. Many of the articles address issues that may not necesarrrily be addressed by our other papers, or are on topics that we feel needed to be investigated more. My specific column, which is based on this blog, is our first "column" and is in the lifestyle/opinion section. I absolutely would love to thank Jon Christian and all the other Orbis staff for giving me the opportunity to write this and I hope that I can be some help to my fellow vegans and vegetarians on campus.
I was sitting in my philosophy 228 class today when I recieved my first Letter to the Editor e-mail about MY article. I was ECSTATIC. I wanted to take the time to thank Max Fischlowitz-Roberts from Compassion Over Killing for the kudos on my column. It was so awesome to see what a wide variety of readers we have viewing our paper.
Also, for those who live on campus at Vandy or just go to Vandy I'd love to invite you all to come out to the Vegan bake sale that's going on the weekend of the 8th. VIVA, or Vanderbilt Initiative for Vegetarian Awareness, is doing this bake-sale to help generate the knowledge of our presence on campus and raise some money.
I'm working on writing a really great in-depth blog entry on protein and iron, seeing as how I'm dealing with the lack there of currently, I figured I'd be some help to those worried about the same.
So, go check out The Orbis NOW and let me know if you have any thing you'd love to learn or read about. Until next time, keep livin' meaningful.
