    Hail from the Editor in Chief

    Welcome back, Daily Wildcat readers! It’s the start of a new semester, which means shiny new school supplies, fresh tears shed over textbook prices and syllabus days galore. It means getting coffee from the UofA Bookstore Starbucks will once again become a feature film-length experience. And most importantly (though I might be biased), it means a new Daily Wildcat.

    This semester, whether you’re student, staff or faculty, we want the Daily Wildcat to be more about you than ever: your campus, your questions, your achievements and your news. Look for our new biweekly multimedia feature online called “U in A Thousand Wildcats,” where we’ll spotlight a member of our campus community through photo and video. While you’re online, tell our blog writers what you think about their opinions on everything from politics to pop culture, and your comment could show up in the paper.

    In print, check the science section every Thursday this semester for not only stories about the UA’s forays into scientific research, but also stories about the science of your mental and physical health (trust me, we know how much instant mac ‘n’ cheese you eat).

    Stay tuned to the news section for updates on how President Ann Weaver Hart’s Never Settle Strategic Academic and Business Plan is advancing, when the Tucson Modern Streetcar might finally actually carry you downtown and more.

    Whether you’re a football fanatic or a hockey lover, turn to our daily sports section to catch up on their triumphant victories and heartbreaking defeats, plus our editors’ predictions for games to come.

    And when you drag yourself to campus for that dreaded Friday class, pick up Wildcat Weekend to fuel your weekend plans with stories about local concerts, bars, food, fashion, plays and more things you can do when you’re tired of just watching Netflix under the covers.

    To make this semester’s Daily Wildcat shine, we want to speak to you and hear from you. Do you see news happening? Know campus community members doing work worthy of recognition? Think something sketchy is going on around campus? Call, email or Tweet us. (Depending on what the sketchy thing is, it might be good to call the police first. Only one of us knows martial arts.)

    But we aren’t just looking for news tips. Don’t be shy about telling us what you love and what you hate about the Daily Wildcat. In our articles, features and photos, we always aim to give you the whole truth, and we want you to do the same for us.

    Today, check out the editor profiles in each section to get to know us, the students who will work late into the night to put a paper in your hands every weekday. We’re here for you, and because of you.

    Here’s to a great semester. I hope you pick up a copy of the Daily Wildcat every day and take us along for the ride.
