As a student newspaper, it is our primary goal and responsibility to pursue the truth constantly and unwaveringly in an effort to not only be an accurate voice for all members of the community, but also to provide useful daily information and ultimately a historical record for years to come.
We pursue this goal relentlessly. We spend hours upon hours every week huddled in an office, elbow-to-elbow at a conference table and constantly connected via text, phone calls, social media and email. Throughout this entire process, we are continuously thinking about you, the Seton Hall Community.
This week, we have released a detailed crime report on South Orange, which required months of preparation, and an article regarding a memorandum released by the Archdiocese of Newark which some feel consequently disparages a community of students on campus.
We send our publication to the printer with pride knowing that the next day when we deliver the bundles throughout campus, we might make students a little safer or we might make unheard voices a little louder.
As a student newspaper, like many other student-run organizations, we admit that sometimes we struggle to manage an upcoming ethics midterm, a history paper and on top of that, an entire section of this publication.
We sometimes let our passion get the best of us and skimp on studying to score that perfect interview.
We do this because we are passionate about you, the community and this campus that we are lucky enough to be a voice for.
We hope that you, in turn, not only lend us an ear, but let us know the topics that are most important to you.
As a student newspaper, we know that our target audience is more likely to read a newly refreshed Twitter feed while waiting for class than to thumb through 16 pages of newsprint.
But we are constantly trying to improve and adapt to be the source you need on all media.
We hope that our efforts accomplish what we set out to do: Be a voice, an almanac of sorts, a history book, and a starting point for discussion and change.
