Hello Campus Slate Readers,
Happy New Year and welcome back to campus as the spring 2013 semester is underway and we at the Slate are very excited to be back as well. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a productive winter break.
We enter the year 2013 with what is going to be a very exciting year for us at the Slate and it all begins with the first issue of the new calendar year. This semester, Professor Hanc and I are joined by a familiar group of individuals as many of them were with us in the fall and I want to welcome them all back along with our new members joining us this semester for the first time. We also have two new editors to our staff; Hiba Khanzada is our Managing Editor and Erica Brandt is our Associate Editor and I would like to welcome them to their new roles.
This semester in addition to our monthly publications that you read all semester, we are also in the process of a new addition to The Campus Slate. A mobile application is in development as many of you may recall from our coverage in the fall. This semester we are expecting the App to be ready for operation and you will be updated on the progress all semester long via our website www.campusslate.com. Pranav Krishnamurthy is our leading developer and will be working with our friends at the NYIT Student Chapter of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE). All information can be found on our website and inside the issue.
Inside our February issue we have a great variety of coverage including some news you might have missed that happened on campus while you were away during the break. NYIT Athletics didn’t take a winter break as Men’s and Women’s Basketball was in action. Our Spring sports season begins shortly and we look forward to starting that coverage next month.
Don’t forget to LIKE our Facebook page NYIT Campus Slate, follow us on Twitter @nyitcampusslate, Instagram and Tumblr by searching NYIT Campus Slate. The blog “That’s What She Said” is back this semester on our website and I encourage everyone to check it out.
I am really looking forward to the semester ahead as this will be my final one as the Slate’s Editor in Chief.
