Our mission: cover news, not make campus friends

Thirty-seven issues. Thirty-seven grueling issues, but we made it.

As quick as it began, the spring semester has come to an end.

Coming into this semester, we at The Famuan knew we had a job to do. We had a mission, and we accepted it.

There were long days and even longer nights, but we persevered because we know the student body depends on us.

You expect The Famuan to cover the good, the bad and the ugly.

When ROTC students were losing scholarships, we were there.

When candidates were violating copyright laws in the spring election, we were on it.

When members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. were arrested for allegedly hazing another student, we let you know.

We stayed up late so we would have the results of the spring election in the following days paper, and we woke up early and scrambled to cover the news of former first lady Antoinette McTurner Humphries’ death.

Did we make friends? Not all the time. But that’s not our job.

Throughout the years we’ve been accused of picking on the Greeks, SGA, and nearly every other group on campus.

However, when it all boils down to it, that’s our job. We’re here to ask questions and hold those in power accountable for their actions.

As this semester ends, and we look back on everything that has happened, it’s apparent that we at The Famuan fulfilled our mission. We made friends, we made enemies and we made a difference.
