Don’t worry; we won’t screw up your paper

As we publish our final paper of the school year, we are faced with our annual changing of the guard here at The Jambar. The next issue of our paper that you read will be the first with our new staff. It’s a process that happens every year: seniors graduate, reporters become editors and we have no idea what we’re doing. But don’t worry; we won’t screw up your paper.

We will go through the upcoming school year with the same journalistic tenacity that our mentors taught us before passing the torch on when they left. We will uphold the mantra that is journalism: “to afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted.”

We’ll be sure to whine with you about parking and about how tuition just never stops rising. To our readers, we promise no more reverse jumps and no more cut-off stories. To our graduating staff, we promise the continuation of “Frisbox,” the continuation of Jambar music request hour and to keep unraveling the baseballs in the office. But don’t worry; we won’t screw up your paper.

Most importantly, we will be sure to uphold The Jambar’s mission statement and be the student voice of Youngstown State University — and we’ll be pretty freakin’ awesome while we do it.

So give us your ideas, Youngstown State. If something on campus bothers you, tell us. Give us your complaints, your thoughts, your student voices yearning to be heard. Reach out to us, and we will listen to you. We are here to serve the students of YSU, to convey your grievances to those who can fix them, but we can only do so much on our own. We need you, our fellow Penguins.

And we promise, we won’t screw up our paper.
