Fortunately, with the quarters to semesters change, Backdrop readers can happily know that they will be able to read more content with four issues instead of three this year.</p><p>Weve also changed some of our regular features. Cribs will now be replaced with the new music Q&amp;A, Sounds Like (pg. 10). This column will give readers the opportunity to meet a new local band</p><p>and find out which famous musicians the musical act sounds like. Oh, and you wont find that crossword puzzle anywhere. Instead, weve replaced it with Photo Hunt (pg. 43)a game we took out of the bar and dropped into the magazine.</p><p>In this issue, youll find a glimpse of Athens new Cuban eatery (pg. 14), a look behind the famous OU parody Twitter accounts (pg. 18), and our cover story on the Second Amendment Club (pg. 24)as well as many other aspects of Athens that we all love and adore. Not to worry, we didnt change everything. Backdrop still brings you Hot4Teach (pg. 8) and our Recipe section (pg. 28). </p><p>However, as much as we love Athens, its good to leave the bubble. If youre thinking about studying abroad (pg. 20)staying too connected to home via technology while studying abroad can hinder the experience. If words cant convince you to burst your bubble and go abroad, this issues photo story of Scotland may do the trick (pg. 36). </p><p>In the end, nothing quite compares to Athensit seems fitting that the celebration of out first issue on semesters would coincide with the timeless tradition of Homecoming. Cheer on our teams to more victories as you read up on the recent Bobcat domination of the MAC (pg. 34). Welcome home. Heres to a great year!</p><p>Fall 2012 voluMe 6 issue 1</p><p>Editor-in-chiEf Shannon Miranda</p><p>Managing Editor Melissa Thompson assistant Managing Editor Sara Portwood associatE Editors Kelsi Bowes &amp; Nick Harley assistant Editor Stephanie Fisk</p><p>copy Editor Julianne Mobilian assistant copy Editor Margaret McGinley</p><p>crEativE dirEctor Cassandra Sharpe dEsign dirEctor Emilee Kraus art dirEctor Olivia Reaney MarkEting dEsign Morgan Decker</p><p>dEsign tEaM Cassandra Fait, Tasha Gardone, Emily Pignatiello, Karlee Proctor, Jessie Shokler </p><p>photo Editor Amanda Puckett contributors Kasey Brooks, James Conkle, Isaac Hale, Emily Harger, Royle Mast, Daniel Rader, Steven Turville, Meghan Shamblen, Nate Smallwood</p><p>Fun fact goes here Fun fact goes here Fun fact goes hereFun fact goes here Fun fact goes here Fun fact goes here</p><p>tABLe of CoNteNtSb</p><p>Missed ConnectionWith home only a mouse click away, is technolgy diminishing the study abroad experience?</p><p>Armed and KnowledgeableMeet the OU club thats exercising its 2nd Amendment freedom with safety first.</p><p>20</p><p>24</p><p>Follow us on Twitter @Backdropmag</p><p>FeatuRes </p><p>Shannon Miranda</p><p>Go Bobcats,</p><p>SEE THE PHOTO STORY PaGe 36</p><p>oN the Cover</p><p>bFALL 2012</p><p>ARMED &amp;KNOWLEDGEABLE</p><p>+12MAC-ATTACKSTATSATHENS COMES ALIVEVIA TWITTER</p><p>CUBAN OFF COURT</p><p>24</p><p>14</p><p>34</p><p>18</p><p>Cover photo by James ConkleCover design by Emilee Kraus</p></li><li><p>tABLe of CoNteNtSb</p><p>contributors Hannah Croft, Kerry Crump, Nick Harley, Angela Ignasky, Zak Kolesar, Chris Longo, Margaret McGinley, Sara Portwood, Kaitlyn Richert, Melissa Thompson, Rose Troyer</p><p>publishEr Katie Mefferd</p><p>advErtising dirEctor Adrienne Krueger MarkEting dirEctor Angela Ignasky assistant MarkEting dirEctor Jared Looman MarkEting tEaM Annie Blackie, Kelsi Bowes, Jess Carnprobst, Morgan Decker, Virginia Ewen, Jeff Kassouf, Alyssa Keefe, Carolyn Nachman, Alyssa Pasicznyk, Jessica Sees, Rose Troyer</p><p>WEb Editor Jacob Betzner distribution dirEctor Rose Troyer assistant WEb Editor Kerry Crump vidEographErs Chris Longo, Denny McCarthy</p><p>Stop by one of our weekly meetings, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in Scripps Hall 111.</p><p>interested in working with us?</p><p>Fall 2012 voluMe 6 issue 1</p><p>Simply send an email to backdropadvertising@gmail.com to get started.</p><p>Want an advertisement in backdrop?</p><p>h4t bringing sexy backClass is in session with these foxy former Bobcats.</p><p>8the drop </p><p>eNtertAiNmeNt </p><p>sowing seeds, Growing Minds Residents of Athens give their kids a taste of higher education.</p><p>12</p><p>the Digital edgeThis OU alum turned his love for football into a successful online startup.</p><p>16</p><p>SportS </p><p>sol Food Athens new eatery is the premier hot spot for Cuban cuisine. </p><p>14</p><p>18 trending @thensThese Bobcat-themed Twitter accounts are a must-follow. </p><p>30 up to ParOne OU freshman is ready to compete for her team after a year of diligent solo training.</p><p>34 MaC attackPost-season success has its benefits.
