Check out the website and let us know how we’re doing
by Jed Minor (Incoming Editor-in-Chief)
Good morning UFV! I am excited to be incoming Editor-in-Chief of The Cascade and look forward to improving the product we deliver to you students out here in the good old Fraser Valley. The recent addition of our website allows us to deliver content online and also for you students to provide feedback on the articles we write. My advice to you is: use it! Make your voice heard! We are always looking for student input and feedback and we may even print your comment in the paper, making you a published author of sorts.
We look forward to increasing our coverage of events that UFV students care about but if you don’t tell us what those are we might miss them. Also if we write an article about your team or event please link the article to your Facebook page or website. This enables more people to see what your team or group is doing and increases the readership of The Cascade. Increasing readership is always a good thing because as we all know, or should know, reading is fun and there are important things happening here at UFV and in the Fraser Valley.
We shouldn’t always look to Vancouver to be our source of entertainment, arts, culture and sports. As Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack grow, our sense of community and our activity options on a Friday night should grow along with them.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns, article ideas, or bitter rants about life. We want to make sure that The Cascade remains relevant to the student body at UFV and we are constantly seeking to improve the paper week to week. If you think you could do better, come and show us how. The Cascade belongs to all of us and I am honoured to be leading it into a promising future.
