    From the Desk of the Editor

    As the campus comes back to life after a much needed four week respite, the Stony Brook Statesman staff is gearing up to bring the University and surrounding community another semester of coverage of the most pressing, hard-hitting issues that affect the lives of fellow students and respected staff and faculty.

    One of the main focuses this semester will be to increase student participation in its school’s premier newspaper. We encourage students of all majors to contribute. Currently, on the editorial staff, we have students who are majoring in computer science, biochemistry, journalism (of course), English, psychology, biology and biomedical engineering.

    Effective writing is a necessary skill for students in all brands of study. The only way to hone this skill is through practice. And as we have done in the past, Statesman editors will continue to work with writers on ways to improve writing quality from week to week.

    As students ourselves, we’re constantly learning how to best serve our campus. New ideas are the foundation for positive change in any organization, and we have continued to promote an atmosphere of openness and collegiality between staff members as well as between the staff and our readership.

    Readers can register for the online edition of our twice-weekly newspaper at sbstatesman.org/user/register.

    Students who wish to engage themselves as Statesman writers can contact the editorial staff by filling out some basic information online at http://www.sbstateman.com/join or through an e-mail to [email protected]. Our office is located in the basement of the SB Union, Room 057.

    Editorial meetings are on Sunday evenings at 4PM, Wednesday afternoons during campus lifetime (12:50-2:00) and Wednesday evenings after 5 PM. If these times are inconvenient, contact is there through e-mail, and someone is always present in our office during normal business hours from 9-5, Monday through Friday.
