“ You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” – Jim Rohn
We are in the midst of change. We’ve long since said goodbye to summer, but the weather is finally starting to really cool down. Before we know it we’ll be trudging to class through the snow again.
Change is sometimes good, sometimes bad, but always exciting and a little scary. At The UB Post we’ve had a lot of changes since the semester began. Lawanda and I had some specific goals for The Post this year, but with an extremely rocky start to the semester, we had to make it our priority to keep the newspaper afloat. I love designing and was excited for my first semester as the Production Manager, but when our new Editor-in-Chief unexpectedly quit, out of necessity I stepped up to serve as interim Editor-in-Chief. Andrew Koch, a longtime Staff Writer and business major at UB, stepped into the role of Business Manager. We are so lucky that Lawanda Johnson, the only remaining member of the Editorial Board from last year, knew all the nooks and crannies of the inner workings of The Post.
We have a new Managing Editor, Montéz Jennings, and we’ve found a permanent Editor-in-Chief, Kyle Fierstien, that will both start next semester. We’re extremely excited to welcome them to the team. And now that we’re back on solid ground, we’re ready to push forward.
At the end of November we are relaunching our website, ubpost.org. In addition to introducing a new website design that’ll be easy to navigate, we will be bringing new articles to you every week. We’ll still have a monthly printed issue, but this gives us the chance to bring you time sensitive information like play reviews, detailed sports updates, and breaking news.
