Talking to the Editors

Joe Editor-In-Chief Wow, well it certainly has been a year! I started this job in October, with a small amount of training and the dusty cobwebs of my previous years of section editorship skulking miserably in the corners of my mind. Summer, as I’m sure you all know, is quite potent at clearing the mind of useful memories. I set out to redesign and expand the paper, and to some extent succeeded, I brought in new sections and recruited new Editors and writers, undergrads and postgrads alike. Over the course of the year the paper has tackled several important stories, including following the issues surrounding the halls cleaning contracts, the Union’s successful lobbying and many more that I can’t remember (this week’s has been a tiring issue).  Along with the printed words you see before you, this year’s Felix, as every year, involves the sweat, occasionally tears (but hopefully no blood) of the students who volunteered their time to edit the sections we have and I can only be grateful for their help. Without them and without you the paper wouldn’t happen. Over the last few years, and the last few Editors, we’ve tried to make ourselves more transparent and friendly to people who aren’t already involved – a task that has proven to be harder than one anticipates.
