Your World Today: We don’t ask for stories to only report PR

As both the editor-in-chief of a news organization and a student majoring in public relations, I am walking the fine line between two worlds. On one end is hard facts and truth-telling and on the other is looking out for best interests. While these two worlds can intersect, in light of some issues The Slate is dealing with, I think it is vitally important to remind the campus community about the differences between journalism and public relations.

Your World Today: Who Let Me In Here?

  When I walked into The Slate office for the first time this semester, I sat down at our conference table. No big deal, right? Except for the fact that I had a desk. It is an ordinary desk – other than the chalkboard that says “The Slayte” – that I have seen many times with different people having control of the corner it occupies. It is the desk of The Slate’s Managing Editor: For the first time, that title belongs to me.

Your World Today: Do what you love, not what you can

The glory of college is not in finding out what you are good at but what you are truly interested in. I am a self-diagnosed overachiever, and I fully embrace the fact that I have done a lot of things to be praised. For the past three years I had the mindset that I can and will do anything anyone asks of me­. I wish I knew as a freshman that just because I can do something does not mean I have to.
