Letter From the Editor
August 30, 2006 12:42 PM
The start of a new semester means new classes, new people and new challenges. At [X]press, the start of this semester means new beginnings as well.
Our vision this semester is to increase the coverage of SF State and to move toward the online medium. Because of this, we are excited to announce we will now have a daily publication, where
[X]press magazine is also moving to the Web, publishing weekly online issues in addition to three print issues throughout the semester. The magazine link can be found at http://xpress.sfsu.edu/magazine.
Last year’s newspaper staff left us with big shoes to fill, having won the General Excellence Award in the four-year university division. Two of our photographers won the Society of Professional Journalists 2005 Mark of Excellence Award, a national honor that was given for their photos of Hurricane Katrina.
We are looking forward to taking [X]press to the next level. While this semester will undoubtedly come with challenges, we come with fresh ideas and a large staff to bring these ideas to life.
With a daily publication, we strive to cover SF State at a whole new level. We want to cover the diversity of this campus to a greater extent than what was covered in past years.
We also want to make this experience a real world, working newsroom for our staff that responds in real time to news in our community. Visually, we hope to have evocative photos that reflect what is truly happening on our campus.
Most importantly, we want to bridge a better connection with you, the reader. We want to hear about the interesting professors on campus, the issues that may arise, and the great things that individuals are doing to change lives in our community. We want to know what you would like to see in our publications, so please contact us with comments you may have.
We also plan to create consistent features in the newspaper that include restaurant reviews, a sudoku and an “SF State Speaks Out” section.
I would like to say on behalf of all [X]press publications, welcome to the new semester. We look forward to being the watchdogs of SF State and serving as the voice of this campus.
