Letter from the editor: A fresh start for The DePaulia

The DePaulia staff for the 2023-2024 school year is hard at work on the first issue of the year, Sunday, Sept. 10 in its Loop concourse office.

What’s up, DePaul! 

We are glad to be back on campus again. If you picked up this paper and got this far, you may have noticed some changes from us. 

The DePaulia was pretty quiet over the summer, but not for the reasons you may think. We’ve been looking into how we can best deliver truthful, accurate and compelling news to you and Chicago. 

This required lots of time and effort from our staff to hear about how we can improve and remind us once again why we do what we do. 

So going forward, here’s what you need to know. 

  1. Our paper will be smaller. In an effort to prioritize what you need to know first thing Monday morning, we’ll be cutting down the number of pages we’ll be printing from 28 down to 16. 
  2. You can expect more content exclusively online. We already know that students are getting their news digitally. That’s why we have all of our socials, website and newsletters below. 
  3. We won’t have as many copies on campus. Papers will still be delivered weekly, with the exception of finals. They’ll be ready at the newsstands, always free for student convenience. 
  4. You can submit tips DIRECTLY to us. Please see the “Have a tip?”  button right above our nameplate on the website. We want to hear from you!
  5. We are hiring beyond our content departments. Are you a marketing or business student looking to get hands-on experience with budgeting and advertisement? Look no further, contact [email protected] or [email protected]!

We also will be looking into the best ways to engage with DePaul, Lincoln Park and Chicago overall. We are excited to announce a new staff position aimed at connecting with students. Ruchi Nawathe is our community engagement editor. Email her [email protected] or DM us on social. 

In the coming weeks, The DePaulia will be updating our Code of Ethics to adapt to changing times.
