Welcome from the Editor

By Danielle Clum, student, Northeast Center - Saratoga Unit

March 2, 2011

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Danielle Clum and I am an English major in my junior year at the Northeast Center of SUNY Empire State College. My career goal after I graduate is to work in the editorial field. So, as the new -- or should I say, the first -- editor of the college’s newsletter, The Student Connection, I am committed to making this a productive learning experience. I will be working directly with the Office of Collegewide Student Affairs, with Director, Pat Myers, who is as thrilled as I am to be starting this endeavor. I am very excited to be working with fellow students on this project as well.

My vision for this weekly online publication includes posting college-related, as well as general-interest articles written by students, faculty and staff. We also will showcase students, alumni and faculty in profiles, and feature students’ creative writing in “The Student Voice.” Every issue also will include a “Did You Know?” fact about SUNY Empire State College.

I hope you find the newsletter both informative and enjoyable. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for the future, or -- better yet -- if you want to get involved, please contact me!
