Sixteen-week semester sprint


Readying for months traveled at light speed

By Stephen Cook

We l c o m e back, Cavs!

The spring semester is here and it’s bound to go even faster than the fall — there’s no time to waste.

First off, many of you may have received a reader survey in your email. I would like to thank each and every individual that took the time to respond and share your thoughts — we received over 500 responses.

One of the themes I noticed from the survey responses was a call for us to be open to suggestions from students.

We are always open to hearing your ideas; in fact, we want to hear your ideas, whether it be for an interesting feature about a student, a fun feature piece about campus or a news tip for an investigative story. All you have to do is shoot me an email (

As this semester goes forward, I want us to be the best we’ve ever been. Believe me, I have read each comment — good and bad — and have taken them to heart.

I’ll be the first to admit that we are in no way flawless; and that’s sort of a blessing in disguise. It means that there is always motivation and reason for us to continue to improve our collective work.

Ultimately everything we do is for our readers: we aim to keep you informed, aware and entertained. So, in return, we want to know what you’d like to read about.

This is your campus and this is your newspaper.

As my final semester at the college begins, I look forward to what the future holds. Time will fly, so we must make the most of it while we can.

For one, I can say I’m extremely excited to spend the next few months working away on the Ledger — I hope you’re excited to read it.
