Letter from the Editor

Hello,

Thanks for picking up The Commuter.

As the Editor-in-chief, the responsibility of what makes it to print falls squarely on my head and as this issue contains articles some might find controversial, I figured it was time to let you know who I am.

My name’s Eva and I’m a second-year journalism student with a passion for writing and a knack for listening.

I’m always ready and willing to hear thoughts and opinions from my community.

I want students, faculty, and anyone in the NCC community who wants to write and share their thoughts to share them with me. Heck, if you don’t want to write, send me your thoughts and we’ll do the writing.

Send op-eds, poetry, art, questions, information about things you’d like The Commuter to investigate and report on, story leads or actual stories.

If you’d like to express your thoughts to me regarding anything in our paper (past, present, and upcoming issues), if you’d like to submit something, or if you just want to say “Hi,” you can reach me at www.ncccommuter.org or elabram@nullspartan.northampton.edu or thecommuter@nullnorthampton.edu.

You can also find me in CC140, feel free to drop by or leave a note!

I thrive on creativity and would love to have the NCC community involved in our online community as well. So if you’re a podcaster, a musician, a youtuber, DeviantArt-ist or just an all-round internet creator, submit your work and you might get published online or featured on our social media sites.

While I have this opportunity, I want to make a correction to “Writing Wrongs, Doing Good” from The Commuter’s previous issue. The application for Writing Wrongs, opens January 1 and stays open until May 1. I previously reported that it opened up in May and runs until June. More information can be found at seekreporttruth.com.

I look forward to a semester of learning and growing with you.

Eva Labram
