Easing into (more) normal life at our lovely Tacoma campus
As the Editor-in-Chief of the on campus newspaper, The Ledger, it is my joy and pleasure to welcome you back to campus!
Here at The Ledger, we strive to keep you in the know of all things happening on campus, in Tacoma and on a tri-campus level with our sister campuses in Seattle and Bothell.
Every Monday, a new issue of The Ledger will be available to you, free of charge. Papers can be found throughout campus on the newspaper stands usually by the entrance of a building, but we will also be sending out an online newsletter every Monday as well. Aside from holidays and troublesome weather, The Ledger is sure to keep you updated on all changes every week.
There is a vast amount of creative talent that goes into our newspaper. We have three main writing sections that provide you with information on what is going on in the world. First, we have News. Our news reporters are the ones who bring up factual information of not only the happenings around the campus, but also around the Puget Sound in general.
This is where you will find information about events on campus like town hall meetings or RSO events. They also may feature a faculty/staff member spotlight or two to introduce you to some of the talented professors on our campus.
Our second section is the Opinion. This is the section where our writers get to voice their thoughts on issues that can range from local to global, connecting them back to our UWT campus and Tacoma. From smaller, more lifestyle based pieces like managing stress to controversial global or national issues like the reversal of Roe v. Wade, these articles are always an intriguing read.
Our final section is Arts and Entertainment, more commonly known as A&E. These are the writers that give a little dash of creativity to our paper. They feature various artistic and fun pieces from film reviews to best local places to eat. If you’re looking for just some fun things to do around Tacoma, this is the section for you.
Our Ledger office is located in MAT 151, right next to the Dawg Den in the Mattress Factory. Writers, Editors and Designers have office hours through the week and are happy to chat with you about anything you may need. If you’re a part of an RSO and have an event you want us to share or you know of a story you think we should cover, let us know! We are always happy to help.
