Editor in Chief send-off

in Opinion by

Journalism and the industry around it have changed. We as a society have become more and more dependent on technology that will get us the news we want, faster and more personally than ever before. Does that mean that journalism itself is changing? I can truthfully say that here at the Chronicle, the basic principles of standards essential to journalism have not changed in the slightest. As I write this send-off, I recollect all of the great times I’ve experienced with so many exceptional human beings. Everything that I have learned about the 4th estate comes from the people that I have worked with here at the University Chronicle. The previous editor in chiefs helped to sculpt how I thought as a journalist and ultimately my attitude towards overseeing this incredible institution of journalistic endeavors. This industry has come to a cross roads, a challenge in which we may decide…

in News/SCSU News by

As the diverse crowd began to grow in the Atwood mall on Thursday, the message of the congregation became clearer. As St. Cloud State University President Earl H. Potter III stood at the top of the steps of the Atwood Mall. The crowd silenced and words of equality, tolerance and unity flowed from the president moving an entire group of diverse students, faculty and staff. As the crowd stood and listened, the overall somber tone of the event evolved into a reactionary attitude that led to the unity and collective outcry against prejudice and discrimination on St. Cloud States campus. Unity is defined by being in full agreement and the element on oneness, and that is what was exemplified during the Unity Walk. Put on by the University Program Board and other organizations on campus, the walk was due to an outcry against intolerance after a man known as the…

Student Government runs into low voter turnout

in News/SCSU News by

The St. Cloud State University Student Government elections have come and gone once again for the semester, deciding 16 senators at large and giving statistical insight to issues that reach every St. Cloud State student in the upcoming future. Voter turnout fell short again, with an all time low this semester. When asked about voter turnout, Student Body President Lindsey Gunnerson said that the “lack of campaigning” was much of the reason why voter turnout was down. “The lack of campaigning and visibility of all candidates really confused the student body, and it definitely hit us hard,” she said. “We hoped that our referenda would draw some additional voters, but it was not as successful as a tactic as we had hoped.” With such low voter turnout, concerns for next year’s student government and the issues they will face are beginning to surface. Much of which can also be attributed to the lack of…
