Hello and welcome back to campus! My name is Jocelyn Visnov, and I have the privilege of being Editor-in-Chief of the Quadrangle this year.
If you’re reading the print version of the paper, to the left you’ll find a very talented list of writers and editors. This masthead, along with many other wonderful writers not listed, will be working hard to excite and inform the MC community while bringing you your campus news each week. Among this list you’ll recognize several names of Quad veterans including Kyla Guilfoil, who previously served as Editor-in-Chief, and who I am lucky to have as my right-hand woman as she takes on the roles of Managing Editor and Sports Editor.
In addition to the traditional print issue of the Quadrangle, I would encourage you to check out our website (mcquad.org) for stories old and new. The Quad also posts weekly updates on Instagram and Twitter (@mcquad for both) as well as Facebook (The-Quadrangle).
As journalists, we are here to serve the MC community. Whether you’re reading the print or web versions of the newspaper, or following along on social media, I hope you’ll find the Quadrangle to be an excellent resource for keeping you informed and involved in the happenings of the college and surrounding community.
The Quadrangle is always accepting new writers and editors to join our team. If you’re interested in writing with us, please feel free to come to our weekly meetings on Tuesdays at 4pm in Kelly 4.12. Practicing good writing and communication skills are beneficial to all majors and career paths, so I hope more Jaspers will consider joining the Quadrangle regardless of your major or previous writing experience.
If you have any potential pitches or stories that might be of interest to the Quadrangle please feel free to email us at email@example.com with your ideas. You can also write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the “Letter to the Editor” function on our website.
This position is not one I take lightly. I love this paper and I hope to lead with the same passion, grace and creativity that I have seen from EIC’s in the past.
I hope you’ll join us each week and follow along as we continue this journey of journalism together. Until next week!
