Greetings from the New Publisher

img_2334By Veronica Fernandez

Welcome to the all digital Collegian Newspaper. It is a great privilege to have been recently named publisher of the online edition

As this new journey beings, I will vigorously work towards accurately informing the Morton College and local community.

As a student, I believe it necessary to be aware of school events, policies, and changes that occur in the place where my intellectual abilities are being shaped. As a member of the community, I am concerned about the place I call home. I recognize that knowledge is power, and this opportunity can be of great advantage to students, faculty, and community members alike.

In the coming months, I aspire to publish articles and stories that will captivate the reader’s attention with relevant and engaging content. I look forward to contributing to the newspaper’s success.

The Collegian Newspaper will publish new articles Wednesdays and Fridays.

For any questions, comments, or concerns contact Veronica Fernandez at veronica.fernandez@morton.edu.

Note from the New Editor-in-Chief

By Marcela Ruiz

photo002Hello, and welcome to The Collegian Newspaper. It is a great pleasure to introduce myself as the new editor-in-chief. It has been an animated experience to transition from a printed newspaper to an all online edition. As a Morton College student, I believe all students should be knowledgeable about college affairs and topics that shape our community.

I can enthusiastically say that I am fascinated to work for a newspaper that has remained a reputable source for news since 1924. In the months to come, I look forward to working to develop a more engaged Morton College community and asses as many topics of concern as possible. I want more students to be proactive and take control of their education possibilities.

This innovative change is a great opportunity for The Morton College Community to submit their writings. I can assure you that your contributions will be substantial to the development and success of the journal.

Contact Marcela Ruiz at marcela.ruiz@morton.edu for any submissions.

Monday, February 20th will mark one month since the presidential inauguration. Many opposed to the President’s ideals have taken to the streets, airports and Washington D.C. in protest to demonstrate their disagreement with new policies and executive orders.
In attempt to reach more people, The National General Strike Association is organizing a strike inviting citizens across the U.S. to disrupt the economy by refraining from, as their slogan states:

“No Work. No School. No Shopping.”

Their Facebook page alludes a demand of reconstitution by cooperative action from all citizens. The strike will commence Friday, February 17th through Presidents Day on Monday, February 20th.
