By definition a sandspur is, “any of a genus (Cenchrus) of grasses producing spikelets enclosed in ovoid spiny involucres that form burs,” Merriam-Webster dictionary. Basically, sandspurs are those annoying little prickly burs that end up all over your pants when you go on hikes. They may be a nuisance, but they really do stick with you, which is exactly what we aim to do this year at The Sandspur student newspaper. Our purpose is to be a culmination of student voices, some that happen to be more on the prickly side than others. These voices tell the story of what it is really like to be a Rollins student, through a lens that isn’t tinted by a public relations department or hampered by a hidden agenda. We encourage campus participation in our publication and strive to encompass as many voices as possible through our open admission policy. We at The Sandspur hope to inspire, educate, and really stick with you during this year at Rollins.
