Letter from the editor: The newsroom exists beyond 4 walls

Kate Robins, the 2024 editor-in-chief of The Daily Gamecock, shares what the newsroom means to her amid university proposals for a new student union. "I don’t know what’s going to happen to the newsroom. And I can’t even say that I know what’s going to happen to the student union," Robins writes. "But what I do know is that in times of uncertainty, it’s important to cling to and appreciate what is familiar."

Letter from the editor: Be proud of how far you've come

The Daily Gamecock's 2024 Editor-in-Chief Kate Robins encourages readers in her letter to reflect on their own personal growth in the new year. "Setting goals and creating expectations for yourself will always be important, but it’s okay to take the time to recognize and appreciate your growth," Robins writes. "It’s okay to tell yourself — and others — that you have worked hard to be where you are."
