Editor’s Letter

Dear readers,

I recently listened to a podcast about how to make time every day for the things you love. Usually, when I think about what it is I love, I come up blank. I do a lot of things, and I think of them as passive things to keep me busy. But, after some thought, I realized that I am doing what I love.

When I joined The Observer, I was interested in taking photographs, but I steered away from that pretty quickly. Every semester I’ve spent here has been a new challenge and has come with countless opportunities.

More importantly, I’ve had the privilege to be a part of your voice. Throughout my time here, along with the different teams I’ve worked with, we have written stories in the hope that they would inform and aid students. I truly hope that we’ve done just that. Some of the stories that stand out to me are the ones that provided transfer resources, informed you of the lawsuit the school is facing, why H.O.M.E is allowed on campus and even the time we dedicated an entire issue to Disability Awareness Month.

I do, however, believe that there are still unwritten stories that we have not told yet. That is why I am asking for your help. If you have story ideas, concerns regarding our campus or something you’d like us to find more information about, reach out and let me know!

I really enjoy working for the newspaper, but it’ll be over soon as I am graduating in May. That being said, there’s still a lot I’d like for my team to do, and I want to know what you want to read about. If you decide you want to share your ideas, you can contact me at [email protected].

I’m so excited for what this semester will bring and look forward to your response.

Best of luck this semester,

Luz Silva
