Letter from the Editor: We are the Student Voice

EC Students,

First off, I want to thank all of you who took the time to respond to our survey of student opinions in regards to the newly approved Julie Hall construction. Your comments have been both moving and eye-opening. You all have greater concerns than even we at the Hub could have imagined and I only hope that administrators will feel the same way. 

In light of these comments, some misconceptions about the Hub itself have come to light. It saddens me to think that people have an altered idea of what the Hub represents on campus. We are, and always have been, a platform for the student voice. If you want to say something about events on campus, decisions being made, or something you witness, we are here to be the medium through which you can voice those thoughts. 

We have always accepted Op-Eds and Letters to the Editor from students. I want everyone to know that this is an option for voicing your opinion about something. It’s in our name, we are Emmanuel’s Student Voice, but we cannot be that without you. 

This survey that we created, which was in no way prompted by any Emmanuel administrator, staff member, or office, was designed to get the students’ voices and make them heard. Believe me, we’ve read through all the comments. We care about what you have to say. That’s why we’re here, that’s why the Hub exists. 

Secondly, I want to emphasize yet again that we cannot exist without you, the student body, either as readers or contributors. We are on Twitter, Facebook, and you can sign up for a weekly newsletter that is sent right to the email of your choosing. 

We are here trying to keep the student body up to date on issues we view as important or potentially impactful to that body. However, if no one reads the stories, then no one is informed. 

I can only encourage you to reach out to myself or one of the other editors if there is something you would like published (as long as it is not submitted anonymously) because we will publish it because your voice matters and deserves to be heard.
