Editorial: Reflecting on a politically driven, surprising year in news

From Super Bowl activities on campus to April blizzards, the student body at the University had an eventful 2017-2018 school year. Through it all, we at the Minnesota Daily have enjoyed covering the action and delivering the news. We would like to take a moment to reflect on fall 2017 and spring 2018 and look ahead to future semesters.
