EDITORIAL: Read Central Michigan Life this semester to learn about, stay aware of campus, community news


Warriner hall in September, 2017.

It's the 125th spring semester at Central Michigan University, and you get to be a part of it.

Yes, you. 

No matter how tumultuous the fall semester was — troubles in classes, with your significant other or with your bank account — it's over. You made it. Congratulations. 

A new semester means a start. It is a chance for you to make the most of your time here: whether it's your first time here or your last semester as a student. You can make the most of your semester by keeping up with campus news by reading Central Michigan Life. We are here for you, 24 hours a day on cm-life.com and in print each Monday and Thursday. CM Life is content created for you by your fellow students. 

Since 1919, it has been our mission to keep you informed about what is happening on campus and providing a venue for you to share your news and opinions. 

From news to sports to entertainment, CM Life works around the clock to make sure you can stay informed. Don't know when and where you can purchase tickets for a Program Board event? We can help you out with that. Are you curious about how your tuition dollars are spent? So are we — and we ask those questions on your behalf. Want to know about businesses in and around Mount Pleasant? Let us be your guide.

CM Life has you covered. That is our job. You also have a role in this relationship. Make time to read CM Life so you can stay informed about what is happening on campus, in the community and in the world around us. 

In this edition, we take a look at available jobs around campus, highlight five stories you need to pay attention to this semester and mourn the death of an alumnus who made a huge impact in the world of sports broadcasting, Dick Enberg. 

Make sure you follow us on Twitter @CMLife, on Facebook at "Central Michigan Life," on Instagram @cmlifephoto, on Snapchat at @cmlife and visit our website at cm-life.com. 

If you are interested in helping us cover the story of your life as a Chippewa — as a writer, photographer, videographer or any of the positions on our public relations or advertising teams — email editor@cm-life.com

In his fall State of the University address, President George Ross said "CMU graduates leaders" as he announced new student leadership initiatives. Leaders are readers. You can't be a leader if you don't understand the issues and challenges you are facing. 

We do this to keep you informed of the world around you. We do this to make sure you have the tools at your fingertips to be as engaged as possible on campus. We do this because we love it — we love telling your stories.

So thanks for taking the time to pick us up today. We hope you look forward to reading our print editions each Monday and Thursday. When you can, read online and offer your views in your comments.

Welcome back. Have a great Spring 2018 semester.
