In beginning my time as the web-focused voice of the newsroom, I decided to first look back at how far the Lariat has come with its web presence. Currently, the Lariat is ranked as the No. 2 college media website in the nation, according to the College Media Association. I’m taking us to No. 1.
I’m not that great of a writer, which is why I am the Photo Editor, so I’m going to show you New York through my photos.

Here are my top 10 nominees to replace the one and only Jon Stewart, whose shoes will never, ever be filled.
I walk into my Tuesday 8 a.m., unsure of what to expect. “Rhetoric I,” the class is called. An intense name for a freshman BIC course, but then again, I’m not even really sure what the BIC is. My classmates and I avoid eye contact with one another, but when our eyes do happen to meet we are sizing each other up, wondering how smart the other is.
When you work at the Lariat, there are just some things you have to suck up. For example, as I write this four of us are working outside our normal hours to make sure everything’s done for the night. Whether it’s missing out on a social life or walking around like a zombie due to lack of sleep, Lariat staffers tend to deal with some necessary evils.
