A letter from your editor

Picking up this newspaper makes you awesome for two reasons. Reason 1: You are helping me keep my job, which is cool. Reason 2: You want to learn something new. (Or you just want crosswords and sudokus, in which case they’re on page 6.)
We work hard to produce this newspaper. We try our best to cover every aspect of this campus and present accurate information to keep you informed of Texas A&M and the people around it. Some days we do better than others, but what makes us unique is that we present information from a viewpoint no one else has — we’re students of Texas A&M University.
As students of Texas A&M it’s our responsibility to maintain the tradition of excellence that comes with this school’s prestigious reputation (i.e., don’t do dumb things) and learn and develop innovative ideas to better your life, this school and (cheesy but true) this place we call Earth.
Side note: I like parentheses. Get off my back, writing profs.
As you go through this semester I challenge you to read everything. Read the news all day, seek the facts, form your own ideas, start conversations. Read a point of view you don’t agree with; learn something new.
Remember to let us know what you’re up to. We look for stories everywhere but it’s always nice when they come to us. The Battalion is an easy resource to share your opinions with other students, faculty and staff — use it. Make your opinion known.
Our door is always open, so come hang out with us. We can give you an opportunity to learn a new skill, or practice one you already have. We’re always in need of writers, photographers, artists, videographers and editors. Come say Howdy (yes, Howdy) at MSC Open House. I’ll probably be there all day.
Help us make The Battalion better. Thanks and Gig ’Em.
