Letter from the Editor

Joel Voth | Editor-In-Chief

On behalf of the Crown and myself I would like to announce that the Crown student publication is hiring. If you are thinking of pursuing a career in journalism, marketing, social media, or entertainment, the Crown is a great way to get a taste of the multimedia industry and gain benchmarks for your resume for future employment. We are hiring for the following positions for the 2016/2017 team: Managing Editor, Junior Reporter and Copy Editor. For more information or if you interested in applying send me your resume at javoth@redeemer.ca or thecrown@redeemer.ca.

 In this month’s publication [February], we have many interesting articles for you to read. Take the time to relax from your midterms and studying to read the front page article — adult colouring books and why they are becoming too popular — while colouring the front page. If you love coffee and need your daily fix, take a look at What’s Happening in Hamilton and explore the Hamilton independent coffee scene. Take time to read and reflect on the article examining how Christians should listen to popular music, or read the music review on the album Since I Left You by The Avalanches. Take a look and familiarize yourself with Redeemer’s attempt to test online course evaluation and how that will look at the end of the semester to evaluate the courses we have taken. In addition, if interested, read over the common misconceptions within the dairy industry in Canada and how these fallacies are not accurate. Take a look at what Redeemers men’s Hockey team has been up to and how they are on the road to the Challenge cup.

The Crown is always looking for students who are interested in writing for us. If you have passion regarding any topic please contact us, we would love you hear from you. If you disagree with an article that has been published in the Crown, I encourage and challenge you to write an article addressing your opposing opinion. Article deadlines and information can be found on our website. If you have any question, thoughts, or concerns contact us at thecrown@redeemer.ca
