Second-year Jamie Mermelstein had her mom’s arrival on Friday in mind when she created her crossword puzzle this week. Mermelstein, a lifelong crossword lover, is the current puzzle creator at The Chicago Maroon and this puzzle, titled "Guess Who’s Coming to Campus," is themed for Family Weekend. In the past, she tackled other big campus events like Scav in her weekly puzzles in the Friday edition of The Chicago Maroon. Unlike the creators of syndicated crosswords, she said she has the advantage of including U of C-specific lingo, like SASA or ORSCA, as the answers to her clues.
