Letter from the Editor

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead

Dear Readers,

As we welcomed an impressive twenty-six new members last week, I could not help but think of what change means for our organization. We continually seek improvement in Natural Sciences Council because without change, we are not growing. We are about to face a change in our leadership as executive board and committee chairs transition soon. 

This Catalyst has articles pertaining to the implications of the MCAT revamp, environmental policy change, and a new feature on Facebook (although, our generation is quite blase about such changes because we grew up in a technological boom). Change can be as obvious as a move in geographic location, like our Catalyst member who is studying abroad in the UK this semester. But this shift often also stems from a personal level, when life-changing events cause you to refocus your passions.

And in the middle of this transition, how do you keep your motivation? Dr. Brent Iverson offers a word.

Good luck in all of your pursuits.
