It’s 2016, the world hasn’t ended since 2012 and World War III hasn’t started. Therefore, this semester means another year for us and another year of trying to learn along with new additions to the staff here at The Skyline View. So what does this mean for everyone for the rest of the semester, or possibly the year?

Coming back home to the newsroom where we live on campus, it’s a new semester and once again we have both old and new staff members coming back or joining up to be part of staff for the first time. Both situations will be a learning experience for us, for the new staff it will be learning about what it means to be a reporter while everyone who was a reporter in the previous semester will now become an editor.

This semester, like past semesters, will be a learning experience for everyone regardless of their role. So if you see any mistakes in print or online, or any interesting article grabs your attention, don’t be afraid to send us your feedback by either stopping by the newsroom, contacting via social media, or emailing us at [email protected]

I say this because at the end of the day, we are still students learning what it means to be journalists, and we do so by being part of the college newspaper. We all know about turning in an assignment and then getting it handed back, only to read afterwards in the notes from the teacher all of the mistakes that were made and missed while being proofread.

This is no different from what it means to be a journalist. We do our best as college students to produce the best story we possible can. When it’s finally published, the mistakes that we missed during the copy editing process come as a painful regret, and while we can fix it online, that is not the case for the bi-weekly print edition.

Still, at the end of the day, I’m only the Interim Editor-In-Chief and whoever takes over for me will certainly have an interesting semester with all the new and returning staff members of The Skyline View. Just keep in mind that we are doing our best and if you see any mistake, don’t be afraid to let us know about it, after all this is a learning experience for us too.
