To our readers,
As the 2016 spring semester is now upon us, I am proud to announce myself as the new Online Editor for The Independent. This is my third 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.
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 allows readers to comment and interact with the subject matter of the story.
I am currently a junior 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.
