Over the next seven weeks, your Signal is going to look a lot different.
But here’s the thing … don’t focus on the word “different.” Focus on the word “your.” Because, believe it or not, The Signal is made for you. (We’re not called “the student newspaper since 1885” for nothing.)

Why the changes? Well, there are a million and one reasons in like with the ethics of journalism and blah, blah, blah. But let’s keep it simple … change is good. Change makes people come over all hot and sweaty or something …
