Editor’s Note:

The one with the cliches

By Eric Long, Editor-in-Chief

It has been a very trying quarter for The Easterner. With the switch to a new design, a staff that grew from less than 10 to 35 and some behind-the-scenes changes, we finally made it to issue 10. Honestly, I don’t know how we made it, but we did. That may sound pretty negative, but I do not think people understand what it takes to create a newspaper every week. It’s tough work.

Thank you to the readers, first and foremost. The compliments we get on the paper really do help to boost morale. My staff and I appreciate our readers’ constant support and we hope more people become interested in what The Easterner has to offer.

To my staff, thank you for all of the hard work you have put into this quarter and thank you for putting up with me and all the changes you’ve been through. I promise next quarter is going to be a lot better.

Lastly, I hope the readers of The Easterner have an amazing break and that your holidays are filled with joy and cheer and all that jazz.

See you next year, EWU.
