The Chanticleer Staff Issues Annual Summer Edition
Introducing New Students to Life at JSU
In their column entitled "Letter from the Staff,"
The Chanticleer staff addresses incoming students:
A sampling of articles in this issue include:
Chances are you have
received all the advice you can handle at this point. "Get involved,"
"Don't waste your dad's money," "Make the most of your opportunities,"
and so forth. So allow me this opportunity to not do that to you
anymore. Instead, I'll just try to explain what exactly this is that
you are holding in your hands.
Each summer, the incumbent staff
of JSU's student newspaper, The Chanticleer, puts together a paper
designed to introduce new students to life at JSU. However, this year's
version is a little different.
For one, we no longer referred to
this paper as The Abstract. We all agreed that the title was, well, a
little abstract. Instead we gave it the placeholder name of Orientation
2007, and it kind of stuck. Our hope is that next summer's staff won't
also refer to their paper as Orientation 2007, and will come up with
something a little more creative (and less abstract).
you will find articles from us and some of our student reporters.
Please know that you are all invited to come and write for The
Chanticleer. Just come by Self Hall, room 180. We are always looking
for unique student perspectives.
From all of us here at The Chanticleer, we welcome you to JSU. Make the most of it.
