Letter from the Editor

Carter Solomon, online editorDearest media consumer,

I am excited to return as the Online Editor for The Independent. This is now my fifth semester with The Independent, and my third semester as an editor. It's safe to say that I have at least a slight idea of what I am doing. I look forward to focusing on solely the online department this year, particularly working towards a goal that we at The Independent have set for ourselves: daily posting. Soon, you will be able to access some form of new content each day you visit our site, be it a new story, an editorial, or a video segment brought to you by our fantastic video department.

The bar has been set high for me. But a few semesters ago, our former Editor in Chief Ayla Quinn had brought our online page to a new height when she was the Online Editor. Current Editor in Chief Trevor Ogborn maintained that standard while he held the position. I hope that The Independent can be a reliable source of news for you, reader. It means so much to be a part of this process, that I know it's not for nothing.

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, as well as get involved with our social media outlets!

Carter Solomon
Online Editor
