Letter from the Editor:
As the summer heat still lingers at the beginning of the fall semester, APN is back with an almost completely-new crew. Welcome, my name is Kaylee Adams, and I will be taking the reins on the Editor-in-Chief position. Joining me in the editing process are Victoria Torres, deputy editor, and Sophia DeVito, web and social media editor. The three of us are former staff writers for the publication.
This semester, there is a lot of new blood among the staff writers. In fact, five of the six have never previously written for APN. This brings many new ideas, conversations and opportunities to the table.
One opportunity is the chance to redefine APN. We’ve considered that a possible name change may help convey the personality of the publication better.
As always, APN is continually working toward finding new ways to branch into the multimedia world. We encourage our readers to reach out on social media if they see something like or if there’s something they would like to see more of.
