Good morning. It's Monday, June 14.
A school year has come and gone. In the last of a series of Farewell Columns from the Emerald's graduates, outgoing Editor in Chief Ryan Nguyen recounts his 1,338 days spent in the newsroom. A first-generation student studying journalism and history, Nguyen graduated on Saturday and is now preparing for an internship at the Wall Street Journal.
Today's Duck Season focuses on track and field, taking us back through the history of Eugene's rise to TrackTown, USA, and up to the current Olympic Trials, which were delayed a year due to COVID-19. The print edition also features a story on how Oregon runner Andrew Wheating became a track star.
Plus, A&C Music Reporter Malena Saadeh reviews King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard's latest (and 18th) album, which she describes as "an echo chamber of kaleidoscopic spaciness, but not in Gizzard’s usual vein."
Finally, scroll down for photos of the Class of 2021's Grad Parade.
With the start of summer, the Daily E will continue on a weekly, rather than daily, basis. Congratulations to UO's many graduates — and everyone who made it through this year!
Your incoming editor in chief,
