Letter from the Editor

Letter from the Editor


To our readers,


As the 2016 fall semester is now upon us, I am the Online Editor for The Independent.  This is my fourth semester with the campus newspaper.  During the fall semester of 2015, I was a reporter for both print and online. In the spring semester I was a copy editor, editing online and print stories for content and style. This previous semester was my first semester as Online Editor.

With my position as Editor, I am excited to continue focus on the online department, as it offers a greater sense of modernity and allows readers to comment and interact with the subject matter of the story.  

I am currently a senior at the Fort, studying Philosophy and Communications. I would like to use the skills I learned in my studies to become a news reporter.  With the new year and new semester, The Independent has a new staff.  I could not be more excited to work with the individuals that are currently reporting for The Independent.  

It is our goal to offer a reliable source of news for you as a member of the Fort Lewis College, and Durango, CO community. If you, the reader, have any questions or concerns about our online process and or content, please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from our readership.
