"Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom."
- Thomas Jefferson
"Measure magazine is the window into a Marist College student’s identity. We came here, as hopeful students, with the collective goal of obtaining a degree, but throughout our collegiate experience, we have collected more. We have dove past the impenetrable surface of fear and stretched ourselves to reach honest truth–even in the form of uncomfortable insecurity. We have moved towards a new definition of inclusivity, welcoming all phenotypes, cultures, and gender expressions. In this issue, the Transparency Issue, Measure magazine acts as a cellophane wrapper, capturing the feelings of a Marist College student in a blanket of lucid and exposed vulnerability. Rip through the plastic, and what you find will be clear. We are sure of it."
