So It Begins.

"Issues of The Quindecim, Goucher College's student newspaper, dating back to 1994 are spread across the newsroom floor Sunday, May 23,2010 before being archived chronologically."

Here lie sixteen years of Goucher College history.

Last night, my dad and I went over to the Quindecim newsroom and organized hundreds of issues of the newspaper. Stacks of papers, some of which literally hadn’t been touched or moved since 1994, lay scattered in a shelved closet.

Together, we covered the floor with every individual edition of the newspaper, then organized them by year.

This was a huge job that was years overdue. It’s the first stage of my extensive newsroom remodeling this summer. Preserving the publication’s history and maintaining a clean and functional newsroom is just as important a responsibility as providing the community with verified, reliable, trustworthy content and information.

I’ll be documenting the newsroom’s transformation as I work on it over the summer. Thanks to my dad for that idea, and for his help sorting through moldy, rotten newspapers.
