Letter from the editor: Joshua Mann — Editor in chief
Congratulations, you’ve just made it to the end of the semester, and whether this was your first semester, your last, or one of the many in between, making it this far is an accomplishment to be proud of.
UH has had about as exciting a semester as a campus newspaper could ask for — between the multiple robberies, to the early resignation of the football offensive coordinator, to the construction of the new dining hall, there has been no shortage of campus goings-on to cover.
And that’s the way it should be. The day there’s nothing to report on at UH is the day UH stops getting better.
I want to thank my fantastic editorial staff for the colossal effort they put forward each and every day to make sure the paper hits the stands the next morning. No matter what you think of The Daily Cougar, these students work under tremendous pressure to put information in your hands.
These aren’t seasoned reporters, chomping cigars while pounding away at a typewriter with one hand and grasping a hip-flask filled with an undisclosed beverage in the other. These are regular students who still have to go to class, write papers and take exams. These are regular students who have decided that they want to be the ones asking the questions, who don’t think “I’m sure there’s a good explanation for this” is a good enough explanation for anything.
If you’re reading this paper, you’re probably doing so because you too want to know what’s going on. Maybe there are questions that have been nagging at you since your first day of classes. Well there are ways you can get the answers you want. The first — and easiest — is to send us a story tip. You can either email me directly at [email protected] or fill out our digital form at thedailycougar.com.
The second, more rewarding, option is to join the team. We’re always looking for passionate writers and editors. If you’re curious and willing to learn and work hard, we would love to hear from you.
We’ll see you in January.
