More Cabrini on front page

I want to start out by thanking the staff of the Loquitur for finally putting something on its front page that pertains directly to Cabrini College.

Being one of the top- ranked college newspapers in America, I would expect the type of feedback I’ve heard around campus from this week’s issue every week.

Thursday night at dinner in the caf, I heard more people talking about the paper than I have in the past four years. It’s really nice to pick up the newspaper of my college and see something that happened at my college.

Don’t get me wrong, I think social justice is an inspiring, very important topic to cover. However, it’s disturbing to see only social justice every week.

The basis of a college newspaper, in my opinion, should be to cover first and foremost what happens at the college. Although it is admirable that students at Cabrini are involved with such charitable work, there’s only so much of it that is front page news.

I think most students at Cabrini would agree on this; we want to read about what’s happening here. When one of our sports teams has “a thrilling 92-88 double overtime non-conference victory against backyard-rival Eastern University,” there shouldn’t be any question as to what goes on the front page. The well-written, incredible stories of social justice should be where they were this week; on page four.

I’m not saying to get rid of these stories altogether; I think we can all agree that they’re great stories. When they’re shoved down our throats every week, though, it gets pretty wearing.

I noticed that on the front page, The Loquitur’s motto is “You speak, we listen.” I hope that you take at least some of this into consideration, as I speak not only from my own personal perspective, but from the perspective of many, many Cabrini students.
