Saying Goodbye to: Karina Palencia

By Karina Palencia
On April 25, 2012

It has been so great working for The Xavierite. I have learned the adequate ways of writing, interviewing, and gathering information. It has been so much fun working with The Xavierite staff. Each person adds so much of their own thoughts and creativity to The Xavierite newspaper. It is because of this staff that the university can have a student- run newspaper. 


From peer-on-peer reporting, informing others of what's going on to sharing opinions on what movies to go watch. I have enjoyed the late Monday nights of "Press Night," making videos, taking pictures, and cracking jokes. The Xavierite has helped me develop a new way of looking at writing. I have enjoyed meeting all the people that I met through writing for the news section. It has opened so many doors for networking and friendships. As a communication major, I took classes for media writing and journalism but I was able to learn even more through my experiences in writing for The Xavierite.


The Xavierite is a newspaper that allows students to express themselves through the various styles of writing unique to each section. I write for News and am able to write in the this section so I can inform students about what is going on around campus and what is going on around the world. It is important for me to inform the readers correctly and I am grateful to be able to do that.


Thanks to Pete Kreten for being an amazing boss, mentor, and supporter in my experience at The Xavierite. I have built great new friendships and memories that will be cherished forever. I am honored and overjoyed to say that I have worked for The Xavierite. Best advice for new coming students, join The Xavierite and have your voice be heard through your very own student newspaper, The Xavierite.
