Hey y’all, welcome to Towson—or welcome back to Towson. And welcome to The Towerlight, an independent, student-run newspaper that works to bring you all the news about and from Towson University and the surrounding community.
This issue is our back-to-school survival guide. Inside, you’ll find all of our tips and tricks for making the most of your time at Towson. We’ll teach you who’s who, how to navigate campus, where to get the best food and more.
The Towerlight is your best guide to what’s happening on campus. You can pick us up in print every Tuesday on racks that are around campus. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram and like us on Facebook. We’re online every day at thetowerlight.com
And, for exclusive content directly to your mailbox, you can subscribe to Towerlight Today, our daily online newsletter that comes out Monday through Thursday.
If you want to get involved, you can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can come to our office, on the third floor of the University Union.
This semester, we’ll have a fair bit of political coverage because of the historic election we’re living through. You can expect to see a fair number of political columns.
Each week (hopefully) we’ll have a “Roll Call” column. You’ll be able to tell the author’s political identification by the button that appears with the column banner. It’s a donkey this week.
If you consider yourself politically savvy and you want a chance to write for the column, please, let us know. It’s as much of a commitment as you want it to be.
We’re going to work as hard as we can this year to bring you top-notch journalism. It’s going to come to you in print, online and in video form. We’re going to bring back weekly roundups, where you’ll see one of our reporters reviewing the week’s news.
We’re dealing with some budget issues at The Towerlight, just like news organizations all over the country are. But, I promise, pay cuts don’t mean a cut in our commitment to bringing the most important news to our readers.
Here’s to what’s going to be a great year.
