Welcome back to campus. It has been a long time since we last published a print edition of The Pioneer back in March. Even though a lot has changed since then, one thing will always remain the same, our passion for providing our readers with accurate and up to date news relating to our campus.
In pursuit of this goal The Pioneer has added several exciting additions to the paper this semester. The newly added Health section will be covering the COVID-19 pandemic, both locally and nationally, as well as other topics related to the health of the student body and living a healthy lifestyle.
The Personal Essays section will be a special section dedicated to sharing writing submitted by students about their life experiences and topics they are passionate about. For this issue we have partnered with Herstory Writers Workshop to publish stories from the “Black Student Stories for Our Time” workshop that was hosted in conjunction with LIU over the summer. All students are welcome to submit writing that they would like to be featured in the section in upcoming issues.
As Editor-in-Chief I consider it my responsibility to ensure that The Pioneer continues to cover content that is important to the students and faculty of this university. It was impossible to cover everything that the Editorial Board and I would have liked to cover in just one issue, but we promise to leave no stone unturned and report on a wide variety of topics throughout the semester.
As always we encourage anyone wishing to leave us feedback or suggestions to contact us through email or on social media.
Sincerely, your Editor-in-Chief,
