A look into the UNCW Administration's response to Covid-19

Can you describe your response to UNCW, and the UNC System administration's decision, to bring students back on campus and have in-person classes?  When the school sent us the email that we were going back to school, I was nervous because I am at high risk and I felt more comfortable being at home ...

"In one of my classes today, we looked at job descriptions and salaries. My professor asked all of us, ‘What did you find?’ Everyone was silent. One girl broke the silence and replied, ‘That was kind of depressing.’ We all agreed with her.”

What drew you in to start writing for The Seahawk? I’ve always loved stories, when I was little I would ask my parents to tell me stories from their childhoods. Eventually, I memorized them because they’d been told so many times, but I’d still ask to hear them. I loved listening to people’s st...

“I’m still getting used to being the Sports editor position since I just took over. I probably wouldn’t be able to give you an in-depth response. During my first article I wrote as the new Sports editor, I really learned what it was like having to go through the motions of being the Sports editor. Usually, I’m just the one writing the articles, sending it to Noah [our previous Sports editor], and having him take care of it. I realized there is so much more work that goes into processing, editing, and posting an article. It was a lot and a big learning curve for me. I felt bad because I kept having to ask people how to do certain things. I’m gonna try my best to get used to it, so I can begin to do everything more confidently on my own.”

“As the culture editor, I’m responsible for probing into the lifestyles of students on-campus, and also bringing in components of city and national politics and trends. I try to write up content ideas because it helps visualize how everything is going to look. There is so much that goes under the Culture section.

“Growing up and in high school, I always knew I wanted to write for the newspaper. Going into my freshman year at UNCW, I was Googling what their student-newspaper was. I sent The Seahawk a message and they responded really quickly. I felt that if I wanted to continue doing what I loved this was the place. As News Editor, I help to provide news pertaining to what’s happening on-campus, around campus, in Wilmington, and the rest of the world. We’re focused and committed to giving our audience the most accurate news needed to make informed decisions. My day-to-day looks like reading the local and national news. I also like to go through my emails to see what information is being put out into the community. For example, the other day, we got an email about UNCW’s new housing policy. Even though people may be able to view it from their email, it’s still something worth writing about. The new housing policy isn’t going to just affect UNCW students. It’s going to affect their friends and people that live in Wilmington. Looking at what’s happening around us both locally and all the way out into the grand scale of the world is extremely important.”

As the Copy Editor, what are your duties and responsibilities? Give us a look into your day-to-day life. “As the Copy Editor, writers and editors send me an article they want to publish before it actually goes up on The Seahawk. Usually, writers do most of the editing, but I go in and check that there are no AP formatting errors and see if anything needs to be changed. If it’s scheduled to go up on the website I’ll update it, but if not I’ll go ahead and publish it.”

I have more of the day to day responsibilities such as managing staff, marketing and media side of the newspaper. It’s been a great addition to my college experience especially because it has given me something to do every single week. I’ve met a lot of people and created friendships with people who enjoy the same types of things I do. I’ve had the chance to do things I never would have experienced.

What have you been doing lately to keep you busy during quarantine?
