     As the University of Lynchburg evolves and adapts to a new masked and hybrid normal in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, so must our student-run newspaper, The Critograph.

     As a result, the newspaper will be published solely online this semester. I, like many in our community, find great joy in reading a physical newspaper; however, we must do what is necessary to keep our newsroom staff and our campus safe.

     We hope that students, alums,  faculty and staff who rely on The Critograph for a weekly glimpse into life at Lynchburg will journey with us as we seek to make the the hub for news, sports and commentary in our campus community. 

     We have an enterprising staff of journalists and graphic designers, a marketing manager, a web editor and social media manager this year, all being helmed by our editor-in-chief, Grace Cavanaugh. 

     As a newsroom, we will endeavour to continue to give voice to the voiceless, increase our coverage of non-traditional sports, publish more breaking news events and try to keep an accurate record of how the Lynhcburg Hornets who returned to the hive not only survived but thrived.

     While our printed format may be changing, our publishing schedule remains the same. New content will be posted on on Wednesdays and supplemented by breaking news coverage over the course of the semester.

     We also hope you will take the time to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, TikTok and Facebook as we seek to increase our engagement with the community on social media.

     As always, we are happy to receive story ideas, articles and feedback from our audience.

     Cheers to a safe and successful fall semester!
