I am proud to be part of the UVU Review and am proud to present this newspaper every week to all of you. As the editor-in-chief at the UVU Review and as it reads in our mission statement, my goal is to “create a more informed campus community by presenting a rich understanding of the community’s rights, responsibilities, culture, events and ideas, and framing those discussions with a fair and balanced presentation.” With a team of enthusiastic writers and creative designers, I hope to do just that in a more accurate and timely manner.
The UVU Review is the school newspaper put together by UVU students. On top of our already busy school schedule, we will stay engaged with the community and keep our ears to the ground, making sure the students are more informed about things on and off campus. We will make sure that what ever is going on in this stage we call “college life” is well represented as well as what’s going on behind the scenes.
The UVU Review’s success is dependent on the readership from the students as well as from the feedback. We love to know what’s trending on campus to make sure we are putting it in our pages. In this age where everything is digital, we want to make sure that the access to our content is easy. To ensure that access, we have updated our UVU Review website — uvureview.com — to make it more user-friendly as well as mobile-friendly. In the palm of the students’ hand, they can access our ongoing content throughout the year to make sure they are ahead of the curve when it comes to Utah Valley—ranging from faculty administration to the basketball team’s successes or failures on the court.
Our job at the UVU Review is to “create a professional product that is not only enlightening, entertaining, and aesthetically pleasing, but also accurately represents the ‘independent student voice.’” The reader has more control than anyone else, as they are the ones who can give us the content we need to further our news, life, sports, and opinions sections with their own research, thoughts, and ideas. I hope that you, the reader, can continue to read our product and be engaged with the everyday-doings of the UVU Review. Stay involved, contact us, and give us your input. This is your newspaper, not mine. I just help put it together.
