As journalists, we really only have two things; a copier that frequently malfunctions and our integrity. They say that the pen is mightier than the sword, but this only holds weight if the words being written are trusted to be true.

In a meeting Tuesday Shippensburg University President Laurie Carter and chief external relations officer Kim Garris, members of The Slate staff aired their concerns regarding university communication and student media.

This change has cast a net so wide that Shippensburg University faculty are feeling the impact as well.
