    The Editor's Letter

    I spent a lot of time this summer trying to figure out what my role at The Varsity actually means. With a masthead that changes every year, it's hard to make your mark. It's inevitable that my successors will tweak and adjust The Varsity's style to make it align with their vision of the paper.

    Therefore, how much control do I have over what The Varsity looks like and how long will it last? I felt like The Varsity Magazine was my chance to create a unique, timeless product that I could call my own.

    The Home Issue has been a wonderful opportunity to explore the theme beyond a two-storey, triangular roof 'house' that is sometimes synonymous to the word. We tried to limit the use of the home motif as much as possible, paying attention to more symbolic representations of the home feeling.
