New feet, new ground

Axel Marcenaro, editor-in-chief


Near the end of my freshman year, I landed an interview with the Ram Page. I had applied to be a photographer and was super stoked about the opportunity. 
 
I came in baby-faced as ever, underdressed and with a pair of profusely sweating palms. The portfolio I delivered may have whispered potential, but it definitely screamed a lack of experience. 
 
I was nervous, but hopeful. Then after a few weeks of agonizing wait, I got a phone call. They had decid ed to take a chance on me, and from there, my rampage through the ranks of the Ram Page began. Pun, regrettably, intended. 
 
I absolutely loved the job. I gained great experience as a photographer and learned a lot about being part of a team. I even scored a number of other projects because of the portfolio I was able to build shooting news events. 

Then, my first year whizzed past, and I was promoted to photo editor. I loved that job even more, but guess what? That year whizzed past even faster and now I’m writing to you from an editor-in-chief’s office, proud as ever.

I have always loved the team feel and close-knit relationships that the Ram Page office has hosted. That’s why it’s such an honor for me to now lead that experience and guide my staff toward a new vision for your newspaper. 

This year’s team is full of new faces, coming from various fields of study. From Dominic Rodriguez in music to Jeremiah Devereaux in finance, and from Ashley Rodriguez in social work to Cora Bishoppetty in special education. I believe this mix of backgrounds is going to enable a more diverse paper.

In addition to this, it’s going to make it a lot harder for news to get past us with our eyes and ears all around campus.

We will also be welcoming Dr. Ellada Gamreklidze, our new adviser, who I believe will help us kick things into gear and push us to exceed expectations.

I hope you all will stick with us while we work out the kinks and find our ground, because we have some cool ideas and new content on the way.
