An Introduction From the New Student Trustee

By Estefani Hernandez

Hello everyone,

It is a true honor to be the 2017 elect student trustee. My motivation to run for student trustee was my desire of wanting to make a difference. Therefore my campaign was focused on the change we all want to see. As a student and employee of Morton College, I’ve learned to see that there is always room for improvement.

DuFullSizeRenderring my term, I would like to improve communication between staff, faculty, and students. As first generation college student, I’ve learned that communication is key for success. Improving communication will be a challenging project to work on, but I know that it is possible and definitely worth it.

I am also looking forward to increasing the exposure of Morton College. With that being said, I’d like to work on creating and increasing community activities. Exposing the college will bring many great changes and increase student involvement with more enjoyable experiences.

Another direct goal I have is to increase the opportunities for students who do not qualify for financial aid. A lot of students in our community do not have enough resources to pursue their education and as a student trustee, I will love to find ways to help open more doors.

Although there are many things I will like to do as a student trustee, these are my main goals. I am aware that I represent the student body and I will like to encourage every student to send me their ideas/needs to Estefani.hernandez@Morton.edu. I will try to work on everything I can to make our student experience the best.

 

 

 

Welcome to the New Collegian

I’m happy to announce, as the Faculty Advisor to the Morton Collegian, the launch of this website, which has been a semester-in-the-making. Creating it has been a labor of love. Now Morton College has its own 100% student-run online journal.

Writing for a student paper can be a lot of fun. At the Collegian, it will be an experience in contemporary media. I encourage all students interested in joining our staff to please contact the editor-in-chief. Likewise, I encourage students who simply want to function as occasional contributors to contact the editor.

What are we looking for? The mission of the Morton Collegian is to give students a voice. We are interested in your concerns, tastes, observations, interests, opinions and experiences. As we grow and expand, we hope to review books and film, music and art, as we also profile students, faculty and staff. We are also interested in articles about alumni, or personal essays written by alumni of the college.

When you read articles you like or the kind that give a voice to your concerns, we hope you will share them with your friends on social media. We also hope that you add the Collegian to your online reading lists. It will be the place to turn when you want Morton news.
