As the semester comes to a close, so does my tenure as the editor of the Indiana Daily Student. It has been an honor to lead this incredibly talented newsroom this fall and last spring.
During this semester we continued the reporting the IDS has done for many years. Campus news kept reporters busy. We followed the men's soccer team on the journey to its 14th Big Ten title, the reopening of the Eskenazi Museum of Art and the controversial views of a professor.
The news continued off campus as well. Our team worked to cover news around Bloomington that our readers were engaged in. From the unrest at the Bloomington Farmers' Market, the shooting of a student near a university-owned property and the death of an internet-famous cat.
We spend many hours writing, photographing, editing, designing and sharing our reporting with you, our readers.
Our work not only serves as an educational tool for us, but a public service source of news to the community. Thank you for engaging with us. If possible, please consider a monetary donation to our newsroom at idsnews.com/donate.
This job has been the most challenging I have taken on, but it has taught me more than I could have ever expected.
Next semester Lydia Gerike will be taking over as editor-in-chief. I wish her and her staff the best of luck in their semester.
Thank you for reading the IDS and I hope you will continue next semester.
