Editorial: Looking forward to another year
Another academic year has passed, and it’s time to say farewell to another slew of seniors. As we say our goodbyes to the class of 2013, we should also consider how our futures are going be spent here at UTM. After all, another wave of seniors is just over the horizon, and another wave of confused freshman will come stumbling in to pick up the rear.
... and in with the new
Alas, the long-lasting tyranny of her majesty Jenifer Nicks is coming to an end. In August 2013, the Viewpoints section of your beloved campus paper will be liberated from the grating cynicism and nauseating honesty that is the Nicks administration. And she’s being replaced with a near-identical copy, ladies and gentlemen! That’s right, the intimidating and controversial nature of The Pacer’s Viewpoints section is coming back, and it’s going to be as cringe-worthy as ever.
Moving on up: Pacer staff makes a change
I’ve tried to write this thing at least four times and decided I hated it every time. So here’s my best attempt at being meaningful. One of the best things I ever did was double major. Not so much because I’ll walk away with two degrees, but more just because it gave me an extra year here.
SGA election causes concern for students
The recent SGA election has left me with a great deal I don’t understand. This is the level on which an individual voter can make the most difference. The voter base is small. SGA has the authority to change the UTM campus for better or worse and has very few loopholes to jump through.2 comments
Senior farewell: Jasmine Brooks
Martin has been my home for the last four years of my life and it hurts me so much to have to leave. Martin is the place where I fell in love, met my best friend, got my heart broken, made more great friends, gained lifetime sisters, created my own lane and most importantly, I set my dreams into actions! I find comfort in UTM because it has always taken care of me.
Editorial: End of classes
With less than a month of classes left to go in this academic year, we have some thoughts on the year drawing to a close. We’ve had our share of problems this year, with most of us in roles that were wholly new and unexpected to us. Still, we worked harder than we ever have before while we navigated our own personal mazes as well.
Editorial: SGA elections
SGA elections are coming up soon. With this upcoming election, we would like our readership to keep a few things in mind. Those of our readers who read the editorial from last issue may be familiar with the terms “accountability,” “transparency” and “communication.
Be informed, use logic in making your election choices for SGA
I’d like to offer some advice to keep in mind before and during SGA elections this year. First and foremost, be informed. I can’t stress this point enough. Talk to the candidates; find out what they plan to do for UTM. Pick a candidate who best lines up with your own visions for UTM.
North Korea not worth the worry
Almost every time you turn on the news, there is something going on with North Korea. Although I think that most people know what North Korea is, I don’t think we truly understand what’s going on there and why. In 1953, the North Korea signed an armistice with the U.
Nostalgia creates desire for tangibility
At this point in technological advancements, communication and media consumption has never been so convenient. It only takes about 10 minutes of my day to send an email, a text, or a Facebook comment. With iTunes or Spotify, I can make myself a playlist as fast as my wireless connection.
