End of summer ushers in a semester of new issues
With journalism being a public service, The Daily Cougar’s most important priority is informing our readers about the happenings of the UH community. However, that is not strictly limited to campus events, football games or updates about Tier One.
With the summer semester coming to a close, there will soon be more problems to concern students, faculty and staff. We want to know how these issues directly affect you as a member of the UH community.
The reach of current and former UH students extends much further than just Houston or Texas. It extends across the world. There are plenty of stories to be told, and we admit we are not aware of all of them. If a UH student or professor is involved in a unique activity, it is our responsibility to let you know.
To keep our publication relevant, we need to report about the impact students and alumni are making in their respective fields. The contributions of architects, entrepreneurs, lawyers and musicians among the many subjects that warrant coverage in The Daily Cougar.
Unfortunately, all newsworthy events do not always receive a story. This is where you, the reader, can assist us. Tips, which can be submitted in email, over social networks or directly though The Daily Cougar’s website, are invaluable in getting us fresh ideas. If at first you do not succeed in gaining our attention, be persistent. A consistent effort to receive coverage is more noticeable than a single email or voice message.
We know that we are not perfect, and we do not try to say otherwise. However, we are always looking for new angles on campus issues and new stories to cover.
Working for a student newspaper is a constant education process for all those involved, and we learn the most when the public chimes in.
Hearing feedback from our readers guarantees our improvement. We welcome yours.
