Editors say farewell: Hannah Beausang, news editor

by Hannah Beausang

In light of the fact I’m about to be cast out into the fabled “real world” in a matter of weeks, I thought it would be fitting to publish one last article in the paper that got me started in journalism.

Although spending the past two years working at The Daily Aztec has morphed me into a raging coffee addict and a chronic news junkie, I’m going to miss the experiences that made me the insomniac I am today.

Working for a college paper can be challenging, and at times, absolutely infuriating, but the benefits vastly outweigh the downsides. This staff has become my second family, and my cubicle located in the basement of the Education and Business Administration building has become my second home.

Most of all, I have to say thank you to my team of writers, who have successfully tackled everything this semester, from protests to endless Associated Students meetings. Hopefully, the long nights of maneuvering through deadlines and assignments will pay off for all of you. And, an extra special thanks to my Assistant News Editor, Luke Henning, who kept me sane by bringing me endless cookies and showing me YouTube videos.

I’m going to skip all the pretentious thoughts on graduating and curb my rants about my absolute terror about life outside of the San Diego State campus. For those of you not yet graduating, make the most out of your upcoming semesters: stay up late, skip some classes to go to the beach, and have the time of your life while you can still blame regrettable decisions on being in college.

Last but not least, thank you to our readers for supporting student journalism and for sticking by us through the past 100 years.
