A new year for the Bulletin

After winning our second consecutive first place award for student journalism from the American Scholastic Press Association, the Charger Bulletin is back with high expectations for this school year. My name is Tyler Wells, and I am the Editor-In-Chief (EIC) for the 2022-2023 school year. I am a communication: journalism major, honored to head a diverse staff that welcomes people of all majors, educational backgrounds and journalism experience.

Following in the footsteps of our last EIC Kayla Mutchler will be difficult, but her work on the paper’s layout will allow us to explore new avenues to improve the Charger Bulletin this year. You will first notice new sections: “Campus News” replaces “Student Life,” “Arts & Life” replaces “Entertainment” and the “Opinions” section is now “Editorials” and “Opinions.” These changes are in an effort to make the entire paper more centered on the University of New Haven and the surrounding area, allowing students more opportunities to cover local events. Have a concert in New Haven you’re going to? Feel free to review it and write for “Arts & Life.” Want to write a guest column or opinion piece? See your work in “Opinions.” And there are many more opportunities for whoever wants to get involved.

These are not the only improvements we aim to make. We plan to have renewed collaboration between the paper and our broadcast, Charger Bulletin News, allowing writers to explore the multiplatform skills that are required from journalists today. We are also in our second year of working with WNHU to bring the talents to the radio as well.

I am extremely confident and excited to showcase the work of this group of editors, some returning and some new, to once again prove why the Charger Bulletin has become one of the best student run news organizations in the country. Thank you to all of our readers, viewers and contributors, we look forward to another year of bringing you the news.
