“I, Too, Am a Saint” to Launch

The Hub, “Emmanuel’s Student Voice” is launching a new section entitled I, Too, Am a Saint. This new section hopes to be a safe space for minority students to have their voices heard, to discuss their life experiences within or outside Emmanuel, and showcase their talents, whether those talents be art, music, poetry, or story telling. This space will also allow students to advertise events for their clubs or communities for the benefit of the EC student body as a whole. The goal of this new section is to promote diversity and dialogue campus-wide on important social issues.

There will be a new graphic for this section in the coming week.

Submissions can be sent to burkek@emmanuel.edu

    Can someone explain to me what was stopping them from writting in The Hub before? Why do they need a designated section to help their voices be heard or why is this better than just writing as they would normally?

    There was nothing that stopped any student at Emmanuel from being able to write for the Hub or have his/her voice be heard. If anyone wanted to express an opinion or submit a story they would need to attend a meeting just like any other student who writes for the Hub. This is just a new section that allows anyone to submit a piece without having to attend a meeting! It was in no way trying to offend anyone. General members meetings are Mondays and Thursdays at 6 pm!

    If anyone can/could write articles if they just attend a meeting then why is it necessary to make a section specifically for minority students who don’t want to attend a meeting? (or can’t make it)

    Why not simply call it an op-ed section and promote it as a “safe space” where any and all Emmanuel students can speak their mind instead of emphasizing it being a space for “minority voices”?
