Merge of stars still shine, on the frosty hills of the somber pines

Harbor an eerie wind that carooneth over the glimmering wastes of virgin snow.

Through the arch of orient the morn, comes a milk-white splendor newly-born,

A sword of cuts in twain the gray, Banners of shadow host, lo, the day!

Stay tuned for Monday when we reveal our first place winner!

As always students, if you want to share something on ELSE, or have any questions or comments, feel free to email me. I would LOVE to hear from you!

Your fellow KU student,
