We’re not the biggest or baddest of student news organizations in the land, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t work like them.

We have an editorial staff of 15 and multiple staff writers.

We work in the crevices of time that we carve out between classes and other jobs to produce daily online content and a weekly print edition for our peers to occasionally glance at.

We push ourselves to the brink at times to get a story done in hopes that it’ll make a difference for someone and wait for it to go viral only to watch it perform at a less than mediocre rate.

Our budget doesn’t lie in the low millions, it lies in the low thousands. That means that we’re often overworked, underpaid and nearly always under rested.

We’re small and mighty. We care. It’s what defines us and what drives us.

I’m not a person who likes to be told that I can’t do something, it’s not in my D.N.A. You tell me I can’t and I’ll tell you to watch me, and I’ll do it better than you could have ever imagined.

My goal this year, along with my staff, is to make our peers care again about their student paper. I don’t expect them to understand the effort that goes into producing it, it’s something I’m not sure I even understand at times, but I want to make my peers want to pick up our paper and visit our website.

It’s a big goal. Many might say that we can’t, but I say watch us.
