Letter from the Editor

To whom it concerns,


As the 2015 spring semester is now upon us, I am proud to announce myself as the new Online Editor for The Independent.  This is my second semester with the on-campus newspaper.  During the fall semester of 2014, I was a reporter that focused on community and campus politics. 

With my new position as Editor, I am excited to focus narrowly on the online department, as it offers a greater sense of modernity and is the direction written media seems to be moving.  

I am currently a junior at the Fort, studying Political Science and Communications.  It is a hope of mine to be a political news journalist coming out of school.  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. 


Lauren S. Hammond
Online Editor
