Behind The Gustavian Weekly there is a dedicated staff of editors, photographers, writers and graphic designers.
As a staff each week we make tough decisions regarding what articles to write, how to lay out our pages and cover our stories to bring the Gustavus community a high quality campus newspaper. In order to do this, we must constantly weigh the security and sentimentality of tradition against the risk and potential of innovation.
For the past year and a half, the woman in charge of managing these decisions has been the brilliant Victoria Clark. As editor-in-chief, she has gracefully balanced the newspaper’s quality and growth in a way that has excellently served the Gustavus community.
The Gustavian Weekly family would like to thank Victoria for her work as she steps down from her position on the paper to study abroad in Edinburgh.
Although it will be hard to fill the shoes of Victoria, I, Kate Plager, am proud and eager to fill the role as editor-in-chief for Spring Semester 2013. I feel confident that with the support of this strong staff, The Gustavian Weekly can continue to develop in its tradition through innovation to best meet the needs and interest of the Gustavus Community.
