A welcome back note from the Editor

Welcome back to another school year at GSU! It seems like summer break just started, and yet here we are beginning another semester.
As the Fall semester begins, GSU moves one semester closer to becoming a four-year university. Beginning next fall (as I'm sure everyone who reads the Phoenix or attends GSU knows by now) GSU will begin admitting freshman students. The Phoenix will continue, as it has in the past, to bring you the latest on all of the changes taking place here at GSU as the school moves closer to becoming a four-year university.
Speaking of changes, The Phoenix is also undergoing some changes of its own. This semester I am pleased to welcome Dr. Debbie James and Anna Soloff to the Phoenix staff. James, an Assistant Professor of Media Studies here at GSU, joins the Phoenix as Faculty Advisor. Soloff will be joining the Phoenix in the role of Associate Editor. She is in her second semester at GSU, pursuing her Master's degree in Public Administration. Both ladies bring enthusiasm and experience to the Phoenix. I look forward to working with
both of them this semester!                                                                                                                                                                         In addition to our new Faculty Advisor and Associate Editor, we are currently looking for another member to join our staff. The Phoenix is currently hiring for the new position of Digital Content Producer! The position is part of the Federal Work-Study program. The Digital Content Producer will be responsible for maintaining the Phoenix website, www.gsuphoenix.com, as well as the Phoenix Facebook and Twitter accounts. In addition, the Digital Content Producer will write stories for the Phoenix. Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter that demonstrates their writing ability, details their relevant experience, and explains why they think they would be a good fit for an online journalism position to Dr. Debbie James at djames@govst.edu with the subject line DIGITAL CONTENT PRODUCER.
Since joining The Phoenix as Editor-in-Chief last fall, I have strived to create a student newspaper that covers news and events that are relevant to GSU students. I have also worked to encourage student involvement in the newspaper. Those efforts, I am happy to say, have been fruitful. I've been able to form relationships with a small but very dedicated group of contributing writers who make terrific contributions to the Phoenix on a regular basis. This semester, the Phoenix will be expanding our efforts to encourage student involvement. One facet of these efforts will involve the creation of specific beats for contributing writers to cover. I will include more information on the new beats, as they are currently in the development phase, in future issues of the Phoenix. The Phoenix becomes a better newspaper when more students are involved. Students who would like to write for the Phoenix should email the Phoenix inbox at phoenix@govst.edu.
I hope everyone enjoys a great semester this Fall. I look forward to another semester of serving as the Editor-in-Chief of your student newspaper.
