Please read the statement from The Quadrangle regarding our stance on the student government election. ———————————————————- The Quadrangle would like to remind its readers that we are continuing our tradition of not endorsing any individual candidates or parties in the Student Government election. We have not, at any point in this election process, been in conversation with any party regarding any of their policies or plans. We encourage all students eligible for voting to vote and to vote for the candidates they believe will serve the Jasper community best. We look forward to reporting on the election results and to reporting on what new initiatives the elected executive board pursues in the following academic year. The Quadrangle is a student-run paper that seeks to serve the entire Jasper community - current students, faculty, staff and alumni - by giving college news and telling the stories of our entire community. Though we are funded by the college, stories are written and edited by students with no outside input from faculty and administrators. If any student would like to join our staff, we would be pleased to have you. We invite all readers to have a voice in our paper by submitting an opinion-editorial piece to thequad@manhattan.edu. Profanity, vulgarity and hate will not be published. The Quadrangle reserves the right to not publish a submitted letter or opinion-editorial piece.
Dear Manhattan College Community, We hope you all are safe and your health is well in this difficult time of your college careers. To our seniors, we send you support in this moment of uncertainty and disappointment. The tremendous work you have completed as students, athletes, and members of other clubs and activities, will not be defined by this moment; but by the growth you have experienced in yourselves and the growth the college community has experienced as a result of your work. We will continue our commitment to keeping the college community informed, and we will continue pursuing the highest quality journalism we can offer. Continue to regularly check our website for updated stories, as we will be posting online exclusively for the remainder of the semester. Our Editor-in-Chief, Gabriella DePinho, has written a letter to the community as a response to yesterday’s developments.
Dear Readers, I hope wherever you are that you are safe, staying healthy and taking care of yourselves. The news of the move to online classes and the request that students leave campus has impacted everyone in a variety of ways. This decision, though the right and cautious one, has especially impacted The Quadrangle. It is with some sadness that I inform you we will not be putting out a print issue on March 24 and that the fate of our March 31 issue is currently unknown. Our print product is so special to all of us and we will miss having that out in your hands. However, we are not shutting down for these next few weeks, we are simply adapting. We believe the people of this campus community need to be kept informed, that new stories are cropping up out of these circumstances and that we are your best option for staying up to date. We will continue to report and write about the issues the campus community faces and the amazing things people in our community continue to do. For the time being, The Quadrangle will be an online only publication. When the college decides to return to in-person classes and everything is up and running again, we will be in print again. For now, we will be advertising each new story on our social media accounts and we encourage you to check our website every few days to see updated content. It would be easier for us to stop operating all together, but we see this as an exciting challenge. It is a challenge for us to prove to you, our dear readers, our commitment to delivering the news to you in a timely fashion. It is a challenge for us to get creative in our reporting and storytelling. It is a challenge for us to rise and be the best we can be. Thank you for reading. Thank you for trusting us to deliver the stories of our community to you. We will not stop doing journalism. Sincerely, Gabriella DePinho, Editor-in-Chief
