The new year is a time of new beginnings. The spring semester brings new classes, new challenges, as well as new opportunities; for those who like fresh starts, returning to school in January is just that.

While still the same academic year, turning the corner into the spring term feels like a clean slate, both familiar and unknown, new yet still the same. The first day of classes in January still holds some of the same excitement as our September start, but there is something more comfortable, easing in as opposed to diving

The Penmen Press, however, never seems to ease into anything, and we are happy to jump into 2018 with new events, initiatives and goals to guide our year.

For many of us, this spring semester will be our last. Graduation is coming quickly and some of us are ready to meet it with open arms, and others with uncertainty. Many of us on The Penmen Press will be graduating come this May, and we are ready to make this final semester our best, both personally and in terms of press.

We are always welcoming new members of any skill-level to our team, and the beginning of the semester is the perfect time to join. With both a print newspaper and daily online content, we provide a perfect outlet to gain pre-professional experience, in addition to loads of fun and pizza. If you have an interest in writing, photography, social media, web design, event planning and/or business management, we have a place for you.

If you are interested in seeing what The Penmen Press is all about, feel free to attend one of our meetings, held every Wednesday at 2 p.m. in Robert Frost 301. Next Wednesday, January 24, we will be at the Involvement Fair at 2 p.m. in the Athletic Complex if you’d like to stop by and meet some of our staff members and grab a copy of the newspaper.

As always, we are a voice for the student body, so if you have any issues, concerns or comments you would like us to address, please don’t hesitate to email us at penmenpress@snhu.edu or contact us on PenmenPress.com.

See you around campus!
