Lots of crazy stuff happened last night and we wound up staying until the early hours of this morning producing our last issue of the week.
It wound up being arguably one of the best issues I’ve helped put together in my opinion.
As far as my own written contribution went, my co-editor Sarah and I worked together to produce an update for the story Sarah and our assistant Brandon put together on Feb. 8 about the lecturer involved in an altercation with members of the CSUF College Republicans club.
Not only did we get an official comment from the University’s Chief Communications officer that told us what the internal investigation into the issue turned up, we also got a comment from the lecturer himself about his current status. Through those two we found out that the investigation concluded the lecturer did strike a student, impeded on the free speech of the College Republicans club and was suspended as a result.
Pretty awesome stuff to get to throw together all at once, and I’m super proud of how the update turned out.
However, that wasn’t the only thing in this particular issue that made it such a good one. We also have stories about a strange and interesting series of arrests that Sarah looked into, Trump’s administration addressing the transgender bathroom issue yesterday, CSU Chancellor Timothy White releasing a statement about how immigration concerns will be handled by the school system and more. Lots of really good stuff written by a lot of great writers in one of the more memorable page layouts I’ve seen in quite some time!
All the stories are available online of course, but I’d also recommend looking at them in their official print layout over on Issuu, since it really is a really nice issue overall in my opinion. It’s a slightly biased opinion I suppose, but this is my personal blog so take it for what it is.
