What a semester. As I sit at my desk and write this letter, it’s awe-striking how fast this semester and year have gone by. This has truly been a memorable year. From Nazanin Zinouri’s reentry into the U.S., to an impeachment trial, to our Tigers once again being on top in football, Clemson has truly been a nationally-highlighted city. Through it all, The Tiger has been there to cover it.

Vince Lombardi once said, “Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.” For those who are freshmen and new readers, what that means to me is that The Tiger will try its hardest to make sure our publication does right by you and does its utmost to be the best it can be. Transitioning into next semester, The Tiger will continue to make changes that exemplify Lombardi’s statement. This includes stylistic changes, more online/interactive content and recruiting a more diverse array of students so we can truly represent all

of Clemson. 

Regardless of the changes, we here at The Tiger want to make sure it’s the paper which “roars for Clemson.” As always, while we want to make changes to represent a full Clemson family and to help create dialogue on campus, we cannot do this alone. We need your help, Tigers. Every student, faculty member, staffer and administrator has the skills essential to assisting in documenting Clemson’s history. You may not believe it, but you do. You can not only help The Tiger, but our entire community as we make strides to truly embody what it means to know ourselves and others. Whether it’s joining our staff, continuing to be a reader or letting us know your criticisms, we want to hear it all from you.

This issue marks the end of our 110th year, and through those years, we have made bold decisions. We’re going to keep that up. By doing so, we can achieve greatness, catch excellence and truly recapture the Clemson experience.

Expect more, roar on and go Tigers,
