It has been an honor for all of us at the Pulse to bring you campus news content. We are excited for a break during the summer, but will no doubt miss seeing everyone around campus. We wanted to put together a small summary of what we loved most about working on the Pulse in case you might be interested in joining our team next fall!
Emily – Managing Editor and Writer
I have loved being able to write and edit for the Pulse this year. As a transfer student, it was a great way for me to be able to feel involved in different aspects of campus life that I otherwise might have missed. I had the amazing opportunity to practice leadership and writing skills which I am very passionate about. Though our team got a little smaller for spring semester, it was truly a joy to be able to work with other writers and develop our skills together. Working with other writers and establishing goals together was one of my favorite aspects of working on the Pulse team. If you have any interest in writing, interviewing, or editing, this is a great opportunity to get your foot in the door. I cannot wait until next fall to get started again. I have big plans for the Pulse next year.
Sarah – Copy Editor and Writer
My favorite part of being in the Pulse is the writing experience. Every 2 week I got the opportunity to write a story for the college to read and copy edit all of the other stories. Working with the Pulse has boosted my confidence in writing and sharing what I wrote. Besides learning about writing techniques, I learned more about the school and other people. I didn’t know much about SAU sports before, but now I am rooting for our university’s teams. Also, every time I interviewed someone for a story, I felt I was becoming more professional. I am thankful to be a part of the Pulse and I look forward to being a part of it next semester.
Merry – Writer
Writing for the Pulse has been a tremendous honor and privilege for me as I have been blessed with the opportunity to share the stories of my fellow students, faculty, and staff. I have grown more confident in my writing abilities and learned what works and what does not work for me as a writer. This has also been a fantastic opportunity for me to work with a team of like-minded individuals who challenge me to work harder, write better, and think outside the box. Most importantly, this opportunity has helped me realize that I can use my voice and writing to uplift others and discuss topics I am passionate about. That, by far, has been my favorite part of writing for the Pulse — I am so blessed to speak with, learn about, and share the stories of so many different people. It has been an opportunity for me to step outside of my own limited perspective and to focus on the diverse perspectives of others.
