Staff Editorial

Just in case you didn’t know, there is one week left of classes and this is officially the last issue of The Oswegonian for the 2009 spring semester.

Overall, it’s been an interesting journey. We have had some great headlining news, some interesting bloopers and have made some achievements that we didn’t expect.

The Oswegonian is proud to announce that we have won not only a first place prize from the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA) but we have also received a third place prize from the Society for Professional Journalists. We were one of the few state schools on both lists and were ranked among Ithaca College and Fordham University, both well-respected and well-financed schools. These awards have really reminded The Oswegonian staff that all the hard work we put forth is worth it, and that we go above and beyond what is expected of us.

Yet, winning these awards isn’t what warms our hearts and gives us the warm and fuzzy feelings inside. We get that when we walk through the Campus Center and see passersby with our newspaper in tow or when we walk past the stands and see how low the supply of newspapers have gotten. Moments like that tell us that our hard work isn’t in vain, and that the people that we really work for, our lovely Oswego community, are appreciating what we do and the information we strive to diligently and accurately report to you.

Our main goal is to offer a wealth of knowledge and information to the Oswego State community and beyond and we hope that you will continue to look for us as your source of information.

Good luck on finals, we wish you all the best. To graduating seniors, congratulations and remember us when you’re out in the world.
