The November 2014 issue of the Pedant focuses on realigning expectation and reality. We formally introduce the new dean of students, Chris Bass, to the student body, give a status update on the annual student conference, go in-depth into worries students have been expressing over financial aid, and include an editorial by GSC president Kevin Campbell on the state of student advocacy at CGU. This issue also focuses on moving forward and honoring the season we are in. The feature explores the science and morality of giving while La Bonne Vivante takes us into the [now] snow-capped peaks of Mt. Baldy for a local winter sojourne.
