The 2022-2023 school year has finally arrived! The staff of the Daily Forty-Niner newspaper welcomes returning and new students to campus, and we are excited to begin informing and connecting with each and every student.
As I enter my junior year at Long Beach State, I’m looking forward to leading the Daily Forty-Niner as Editor-in-Chief and serving our campus community by providing breaking news, local news, sports, opinions as well as arts and life stories.
I’m also looking forward to providing a voice for all of the students at Long Beach State University. We are a student-run publication, and we strive to uplift the voices of our entire student body through our work. This year, one of our many goals is to grow as a publication while also growing as individuals and journalists. With an almost entirely new staff made up of diverse students in a variety of majors, our newsroom is rapidly evolving and becoming better every day.
The staff of the Daily Forty-Niner looks forward to continuing to provide the campus with information in a quick, efficient and ethical manner. As students, we encourage you all to reach out and voice your opinions regarding campus issues. Your voices deserve to be heard, and we are here to listen.
I wish you all a positive start to the semester at CSULB; remember to give yourselves breaks and monitor your mental health as the year goes on. We’re all students, but we’re people first.
Print copies of the Daily Forty-Niner will be produced monthly and can be picked up at the news boxes around campus. For daily news content, visit our website, subscribe to our newsletter, and follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook @daily49er.
