First of all, thank you very much for your critiques! Every year we get a couple of letters from Huey Coleman’s “Intro to Mass Communications” class, and they certainly help keep us to rigorous journalistic and editorial standards.
The Beacon newspaper is run essentially by students. Because of a lack of interest and content, it’s always tough to balance a micro view of SMCC events and policies with a macro view of our place in the world as a college. This becomes increasingly difficult with a section like Arts and Features. While art-type events occur on campus semi-frequently, we always receive more articles about outside events or subjects that a student is interested in.
