First and foremost, I would like to welcome everyone back. I sincerely hope everyone had an enjoyable summer to relax while preparing for this semester.
We at The Journal are very excited to begin working and covering the news stories important to students at Webster University. We have made some changes over the summer, with plans to implement more in the immediate future.
Over the summer Webster University was invited to partner with USA Today to release a new application called The Buzz aimed specifically at Webster students and faculty. This application will feature articles from The Journal appearing alongside national and local stories from USA Today. This is a fantastic opportunity to have our articles reach a wider audience while providing students with an easier way to view them.
This year, the staff at The Journal will be expanding our coverage of events on campus to include the other departments and majors on campus. One of our biggest goals this year is to include stories in these areas that will interest students who might not usually read the newspaper.
Despite the changes taking place this year, The Journal will continue to be a publication worthy of Webster University. We will strive to live up to the reputation of those that came before us while delivering high-quality news to our readers. Our purpose is to serve the students and faculty of this university, so if there is anything you would like to see from our staff, do not hesitate to let us know. We would love to hear from everyone with any advice or criticism you may have for us.
A lot is happening at Webster University this year, but I believe the changes will be positive. This is going to be a great semester and we look forward to bringing the news to all of you. As Confucius once said, “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential, these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
