    From the editor’s desk

    The arrival of fall and a new semester, like the ones before it, brings a host of changes to the Statesman. These changes are aimed to bring readers, old and new alike, closer to the campus as we work day and night to scout the campus for news that matter. At the same time, we hope that you will enjoy reading the Statesman for the for our stories whether its music reviews, poetry, sports, features or editorials. The Arts and Entertainment section will be expanding our coverage of bands, concerts, movies and music that interest Stony Brook students. We will be including a monthly insert to our paper that will feature short stories, poetry and even illustrations from authors and poets on campus. The Sports section will be expanding our coverage of all the games including in-depth features of coaches, players and team leaders. We will have team previews before each season and have predictions for the upcoming games. And we will do our best to cover a wide variety of topics that interest readers and on what makes the coaches, athletes and fans tick. This semester will be an exciting one for hard news lovers. We plan to cover all the issues that matter and beyond. We will inform readers of all that is happening on campus whether it’s the budget crisis, changes to tuition, new discoveries by faculty and changes at the hospital. We also plan to place more emphasis on the medical center and cover stories about our faculty, patients and staff. Our loyal readers will notice a new group of editors this semester. But don’t be alarmed. We will do our best to publish stories with our readers’ interests in mind. As always, anybody is welcome to contribute to the Statesman. We have meetings twice a week and they are open to anybody interested in sharing their talents with us. To become a staff member, contributors must have written at least six articles and received editorial approval. All staff writers are required to attend weekly meetings with their editors as we hope for as much feedback from the community as possible. And senior staff writers can be promoted to assistants if they are motivated and interested. As usual, we care about the quality of the work and we believe that a firmer structure will help make this happen. The Statesman will continue to be published every Monday and Thursday. If you are interested in contributing to the Statesman, there will always somebody in the office to talk to. Editors will also be holding office hours so please feel free to drop by. We are located in room 057 in the basement of the Student Union building. We’re hoping that students will feel comfortable enough to come join us anytime and we always have more room for people on our team. As always, we look forward to serve you.
