History was made this week on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University with the centennial anniversary of the university's newspaper, the Arrow.
The Arrow, formerly known as the Capaha Arrow, is one of the oldest student newspapers in the country. Its inaugural edition was Feb. 1, 1911, and yesterday the paper commemorated the anniversary with a special edition that included stories from previous editions and Arrow staff members. Other features included a photo page and a special opinion editorial on the Arrow's history.
Many university alumni who spent time with the Arrow fondly remember their early journalism years at the paper. Both the relationships formed and the learning experience attained have benefited these individuals throughout their lives.
There's no questioning that changes have and are occurring in the industry, but students working at the Arrow are being prepared to meet these demands. "No one knows what the newspaper of the future is going to look like, but we are preparing them the best we can for that world," said Sam Blackwell, Arrow adviser and Southeast Missourian columnist.
Congratulations to the Arrow on 100 years. The paper's rich heritage is definitely something to be celebrated.
