From The Editors Desk: An Unusual Last First Production Night

Emily Rosca | The PhoenixThe Phoenix's editorial board wants to remind readers of the importance of student journalism in wake of the Texas A&M president's decision to cut the university's print paper.

The Phoenix has been the most consistent part of my college career. Through a pandemic and polar vortexes, one thing has always been there: Tuesday night productions. 

Tonight is the last first production night I’ll have. It’s our first time back after nearly a month off, but we aren’t back in the newsroom. For the first two weeks of the semester, we’re moving our production entirely online in accordance with Loyola’s latest COVID-19 protocols. 

It’s sad working remotely, chatting over Slack rather than across the newsroom, but it’s fitting. These past two years on The Phoenix has been anything but normal. From moving online to going back in person and now back online, we’ve learned how resilient our staff is. 

We’ll be back in person soon enough, and we’re looking forward to the semester ahead. 

We’ve got a great (virtual) issue to kick off the semester. In news, a breakdown of Loyola’s financial situation. Sports has a preview of the men’s volleyball team’s season and A&E features a review of the new “Scream” movie. 

Our writers and editors have also kept up with all the latest news that’s happened over winter break, including the university’s decision to end contact tracing and the latest tuition increase, which you can read here on our website.

As always, thanks for reading.
