First of all, I would like to thank the Hawkeye for giving me a spot in their award winning newspaper each edition. I like to think I am in the journalistic company of names like DeMiero, Jude, Khadivi, Fiorillo, Karnoski and Nguyen, then I spell something wrong and come crashing back to earth and rem...

Gratitude. After four years, I am leaving exceedingly grateful for the opportunities I have had as a Hawkeye staff member and for the individuals who have made it all possible.

Whether it be reporting  on the forefront of the civil war in Syria, covering on a local story in suburbia, or interviewing a politician, journalism and the journalists who report these stories are essential to a free and informed society.

This comment was never as true as it was last week when opposition to the “Battle of the Sexes” week took on a life of its own. One of the benefits of being in ASB is the opportunit...
