The circle of life has turned again, and it’s time for The Current’s last issue of the year. Consider this our way of saying “See you later” until August when new issues will grace newsstands across campus again.
NSU had an eventful year from the announcement of three new colleges to the formation of a committee to battle sexual assault, not to mention
the infamous Lil Wayne concert and the changes to the housing and meal plan rates. We’ve covered it all, and we hope to cover even more next year.
This was also a big year for The Current. We were named finalists for best non-daily newspaper in the Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards for college journalism. An article from our Opinions Editor Nicole Cocuy was a winner for general column writing and articles from both Cocuy and our Copy Editor Jazmyn Brown were finalists in the category.
For the staff, this is a special token of pride because it validates all the hard work that we’ve put into this paper. Sometimes, it wasn’t easy, but we kept our eyes on the prize: bringing you the highest quality paper we can. Beyond the validation of receiving recognition, we love hearing from our readers whether they be students, faculty or staff , and we’re thrilled to see NSU enjoy the fruits of many hours of reporting, interviewing and editing.
That’s why I encourage you to stay engaged and active with The Current. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (@TheCurrentNSU for all three). Email us to let us know what’s happening on campus, comment on our articles online, and write letters to the editor. We want to be your number-one source for NSU news, and your input will help us be just that.
For now, the staff would like to wish you good luck on your finals and best wishes for wherever the next school year will take you. We’re honored to have been a part of your NSU experience.
