EDITORIAL: Thank you for a great 2018


From campus being on lockdown for hours during what was believed to be an active shooter situation on March 2, to hiring a new university president and a new head football coach, Central Michigan University went through a lot in 2018. 

Central Michigan Life was there through it all to make sure you stayed fully informed on the latest information.

We wanted to take this time to say: Thank you for reading.

Thank you for staying with us this semester, for sounding off on Facebook or Twitter and emailing us directly with your comments, story ideas or feedback. Thank you for sharing your stories with us. Most of all, thank you for your support of student media.

We appreciate the support lent to us by those who read the paper both online and in print.

We at CM Life hope you have a truly relaxing and rejuvenating time off. Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Merry Kwanzaa or whatever holiday you celebrate this season.

Make sure you take advantage of the much-needed time off. Relax. Catch up on your sleep. Catch up with your family. Make time to hang out with friends you haven’t seen in a while.

For the nearly 2,000 of you who are graduating: Congratulations! You make us proud to know there is another class of Chippewas out there who are trying to make the world a better place.

Remember that CM Life works for you. Make sure to keep up with us this December and January as we continue to cover the campus and community on Facebook, Twitter or online at cm-life.com

We’re ready to take on whatever 2019 throws our way. If you’re interested, stop by room 436 in Moore Hall next semester We’re always looking for curious people to help us create the true and meaningful journalism for our audience.

You don’t even have to be a journalism student to apply.

Until that happens, however, take this time for yourself. Rest up, recharge and get ready to give 2019 everything you've got.

We wish you a happy new year!
