It’s amazing how quickly a summer can pass. It feels like I’ve just finished my last final, yet here I am preparing for a whole new school year. I’ve organized all my new school supplies, brand new textbooks sit glaring at me from my bookshelf, and I’ve already begun writing out daily to-do lists once more. I’m more happy for Fall to get here than ever before (and not just because I’ve been craving a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte for the past month). New classes and new faces aren’t the only exciting things awaiting me this semester: I also have the privilege of being the newest Editor-in-Chief for The Ranger News!
I have to be honest, the idea is sort of daunting, a bit scary, but ultimately one of the most exciting things I’ve had to look forward to. This will be my third year on The Ranger News, but my first year to experience the paper in print. I joined after everything was already transferred online, so I’m really glad I get to be involved with the process of printing and making a print edition of the paper. It’ll be a journey, and it’ll take some time to learn the ropes completely, but it’ll be thrilling! And I’m really glad I get to embark on this journey with the rest of you. (No more cheesy moments after that one, promise.)
We have a lot of new things planned for you all this year, but none of it will be possible without all of you getting involved! Send us your opinions, get involved with the paper (meetings are Fridays at noon in Molinaro 107), feel free to drop in the office if you have any questions, just be sure to let us know how we’re doing and what you think. The campus newspaper is nothing without the campus community, so we need you to get involved in any way you can.
Here’s to having a great semester!
