Letter from the Editor
On behalf of the Mace & Crown editorial board, we want to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning Monarchs. We hope that your summer found you involved with family and community, relaxing and pursuing your endeavors.
My name is Adam Flores, the new incoming editor-in-chief for the Mace & Crown, our student-run newspaper here at Old Dominion University. I am excited to take on the challenges and tasks at hand of getting your story published in print and online to our readership on campus, the Hampton Roads area and beyond.
As we kick off the 2016-17 academic calendar year, we hope that everyone is refreshed and ready to begin new challenges on all levels. Our newsroom staff is excited to be in a unique position of reporting during this fall term. With the upcoming presidential elections in November, the candidates are influencing all areas of our life as we speak.
Our editorial board is committed to bringing you news that is important to you: our readership. With a focus on our campus community, an issue of Mace & Crown brings to the forefront an account of our story as a culturally diverse people engaging and challenging the framework of the world we live in.
Would you like to be involved with Mace & Crown? You do not have to be a journalism major. Opportunities are available for every Monarch. We would like to work with you in getting your work published. Please consider attending a Writers and General Interest Meeting held every Tuesday in our newsroom at 12:30 p.m., located in the U-Center across from the ID Card office in Webb Center.
Whether it is news or another section of Mace & Crown, there is a story out there waiting to be told. Will you be the one to help tell that story? The doors of the Mace & Crown are always open. Join us. Your voice is waiting to be heard.
