Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. This past Wednesday was quite the day for us, as we got to travel to the Kansas Scholastic Press Association Fall Conference at the University of Kansas. This annual conference is a haven for student journalists. Basically, it’s an entire day where upwards of 700 of us and o...

Welcome back to Letters From The Editors. If you haven’t noticed, it’s Homecoming week. We’ve been planning for this for a few weeks now, but nothing could’ve prepared us for it actually happening. Now that Homecoming week is almost over, we figured we could tell you about how hectic it’s bee...

Hi, and welcome back to Letters From The Editors. It looks like we survived a full week of having a blog (barely, though, because we almost forgot to write this one). To celebrate, this week we decided to let you in on some important web knowledge. We put together a guide to some of the web-related voca...

Austin speaking: Alright, this is officially really depressing. Seeing as we will no longer be in school next Friday, today marks our last Letters From The Editors blog. In a way it will be a relief to not have to continuously hound forgetful Hanna to finish her part of the blog, but it is also sad...

Austin speaking: Another week passed, already? I keep forgetting how little time is left in the school year. It seems as though the end is never nearing as I look at my accumulating to-do list, but in all actuality, we only have two worknights left. In newspaper speak, that roughly translates to no...

Austin speaking: Well, readers, looks like we've made it to issue eight, our final issue of the thirteenth volume of JagWire. This issue of the paper isn't just special because it's our last, but also because it's our traditional senior edition. Every year JagWire gears this special issue towards...

Austin speaking: This week has been pretty darn fantastic. On Wednesday, April 16, we attended the JEMKC (Journalism Educators of Metropolitan Kansas City) awards ceremony and us newsies and yerds did quite well. We blogged a couple of weeks ago about how we had been stressing out over all the contest...

Austin speaking: I distinctly remember this time last year. I was just a little junior being a busy bee editing all of the Arts & Entertainment pages, wondering what I would be doing on staff the next year. Would I be editor-in-chief, just as I had aspired to be since my first year on staff? And...

Austin speaking: I'm sure I can speak on all of our behalves when I say Senioritis has hit us full force. For anyone unaware of the term, it's used when a senior is referring to their laziness and lack of motivation to finish the school year. It's April now, and we've certainly reached that point....

Austin speaking: I think everyone knows what we do after we finish an issue and send it to the press: we pass it out to the student body. But what happens between then and when we start pitching ideas for our next issue? We do a formal critique as a staff of our newest issue. We ask that each of our...

Austin speaking: This week has been super exciting and absolutely awesome. On Tuesday, I received a text from last year's web editor Kaitlin Rounds congratulating me on becoming a Pacemaker finalist (of course she would be the one to creep like a nerd on the website's whereabouts even after she's...
