Letter from the Editor

Dearest readers and followers,

I am excited to be the new Online/Social Media Editor for The Independent. This is my fourth semester with The Independent, though my second semester as an editor. I look forward to providing overlapping coverage between our online page and our social media outlets to get information out about both campus and community news. The beauty of working with our online content is that our readers and followers can voice their concerns and opinions, promoting a more interactive experience between the news producers (us) and the news consumers (you). Post a comment on our Facebook page, follow up on an article via our Twitter page, maybe even submit a photo to our Instagram or Pinterest pages; at The Independent, you have options to get involved.

The bar has been set high for me. But a few semesters ago, our Editor in Chief Ayla Quinn had brought our online page to a new height when she was the Online Editor. Associate Editor in Chief Trevor Ogborn maintained that standard while he held the position. Now it’s my turn.

I hope to provide up-to-date coverage on events and topics that you, the reader, care about.

If any questions, concerns, or ideas about our online content arise, please contact me. And make sure to check the yellow boxes around campus for our news magazine!

Carter Solomon

Online/Social Media Editor
