The fall semester editorial staff of The Hoya was elected this weekend and begins its term with today’s issue.
Editor-in-Chief Connor Gregoire (COL ’13) will continue his yearlong term, which started in November, while his senior editorial staff has experienced a complete turnover.
“I’m excited to get working with an entirely new staff,” Gregoire said. “It will be a challenging but rewarding experience.”
Lauren Weber (COL ’13), former executive editor and Board of Directors member, was elected chair of the board.
“I am honored to be elected chair … and I look forward to working with the incredibly talented team on staff in the year ahead as we continue to make strides to better serve the greater campus community,” Weber said.
Senior City News Editor Sarah Kaplan (SFS ’14) and Guide Editor Steven Piccione (COL ’13) were elected executive and managing editor, respectively.
The new staff hopes to continue the progress The Hoya has made over the past semester, Gregoire said, including its partnership with Washington Post Social Reader and the launch of “The Fourth Edition” and “Hoya Paranoia” blogs.
The Hoya’s focus will remain on these major projects in the upcoming fall semester, with a continued emphasis on widening the scope of news coverage.
“We hope to improve in our role as the best outlet for breaking news relevant to the campus community,” Gregoire said.
