Letter from the Editors

Megan Petersen ’15 and Aidan Harley ’16Editors-In-Chief

Hello, everyone—as the new editors-in-chief of The Scripps Voice, we are so excited to welcome you all (back) to Scripps!

From its writing and photographs to its management and design work, The Scripps Voice is completely created by students. It is our goal to publish a paper by you, for you, and we have lots of big ideas about how to best accomplish that goal.

First, we received lots of great feedback from students and staff last spring. Thank you to those who responded. One of the most common critiques of the paper was that our staff and the views presented in our articles were often homogeneous, non-encompassing, and even one-sided. We want to do everything in our power to change that this year. The Scripps Voice is a unique publication, created by women’s college students, and it is therefore especially important that it accurately represents Scripps’ student body.

But, of course, we can’t do it by ourselves. In order to accomplish this goal, we need to have as many students contributing to the paper as possible. We have lots of space for articles, columns, and photos either in the paper or on our website, and we also always welcome guest contributors. Passionate about something? Write about it, and send it our way. Does your group have a great event coming up? Send us pictures! We’d also love to write previews of events coming up, so keep us posted on what you’ve got planned.

We’re also excited to announce that, starting next semester, we will launch a YouTube channel with video columns. We’ll have more details on that towards the end of the semester, but for now the editors-in-chief will have our own video column launching each issue of the paper. Be sure to check it out on our website.

Finally, be sure to reach out to us with ideas, concerns, or questions. You can always email us at scrippsvoice@gmail.com or stop us if you see us around on campus.

Have a great first weekend, Scripps. We can’t wait to hear from you.

Megan Petersen ’15 and Aidan Harley ’16, editors-in-chief
