We’ve come a long way Leader readers; we’ve reached the end of the semester after a year out of the ordinary. As we exit the newsroom and ascend the stage to receive our diplomas, the graduating members of the editorial board want to say thank you.
Thank you to our readers for consistently reading the newspaper, following along with our social media, falling for our April Fools prank, and for being courageous enough to be quoted in our stories.
This year was unique. It was our first time back in print after a year and a half of being strictly online; much like those early days of quarantine we changed our colors by trying out several monochromatic issues, and took up new hobbies by finally getting on TikTok.
After nearly two years, we were itching for some change and it turned out to be good for us.
Change is difficult, but it can be a good thing, like making the change and joining The Leader in the upcoming academic year. It’s a great opportunity to grow as a writer, photographer, digital artist, content creator, or just break out of your shell by interviewing new people.
University is an exploratory time in a young person’s life, so why not try out the campus newspaper for a change? People try out creative writing club, film club, intramural sports, so what’s holding you back from trying out The Leader?
As three of the five editors graduate and make their way into their future endeavors, The Leader is in need of future editors, writers, photographers, and so much more. There is something for everybody on The Leader.
This is also a great opportunity to enhance a resume by potentially winning awards and being a part of an award-winning newspaper — The Leader took home 13 awards back in February. No experience is necessary in order to join The Leader, if you are interested we will welcome you with open arms.
Why not give it a shot? You never know what you can get out of it — new friends, better writing skills, or even a career change.
