From the Editor’s Desk: A Chapter of Inspiration and Involvement

By Timothy Zubov


Dear FDU Community,

As the fall leaves bring a splash of color to our Fairleigh Dickinson University campus, a sense of excitement and new beginnings fills the air, much like my own journey as the Editor-in-Chief at The Equinox. From my early days as a Staff Writer, The Equinox has been more than just a source of news; it’s been a platform for our community’s voice, truly capturing the essence of life at FDU.

This season, we’re excited to bring you a series of engaging events. These aren’t just events; they’re a part of the rich tapestry we’re creating together at FDU, designed to inform and actively involve everyone in the vibrant life of our university.

1. Raffle Basket Giveaway: Kicking off our lineup is the much-anticipated Raffle Basket Giveaway, set in the SUB lobby. We welcome you on Tuesday, 11/14 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm and Wednesday, 11/15 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The excitement will reach its peak with the prize draw on Monday, 11/20. This event isn’t just about the thrill of winning; it’s a unique chance to engage with fellow students and immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of our campus.

2. Video Game Knight Tournament: Next, we present the Video Game Knight Tournament, an evening of digital camaraderie and spirited competition at the Knight Club on Thursday, 11/16, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. Whether you’re a seasoned gamer or a newcomer to the world of gaming, this event promises to be a blend of fun, challenge, and community spirit.

3. Designer Day: Lastly, on Tuesday, 11/28, we invite you to express your creativity at our ‘Customize Your Own Merchandise’ event in the Kron Lounge, from 7:00-10:00 pm. This is more than just a creative exercise; it’s an opportunity to craft a personal emblem of your time at FDU, a keepsake that resonates with your individual identity and our collective spirit.

These initiatives are a testament to our commitment at The Equinox – not only to provide news but also to create platforms for engagement, expression, and the celebration of our diverse community.

We value your voice and encourage your active participation. For thoughts, collaborations, or simply to share your stories, reach out to us at or join our conversations on Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok @equinoxfdu. Your perspectives and participation are the cornerstone of The Equinox, shaping it into a true reflection of our FDU community.

Join us in these activities to enrich your university experience. Together, let’s make these events not just memorable but also meaningful chapters of our journey at FDU.
