Note from the Editor:
Letter from the Editor:
With winter slowly coming to an end and spring time close to blooming once again, APN also grows with season. My name is Emily Kim and I am the new Editor-in-Chief of APN. Aside from my position, let’s take a look at what’s new this semester.
APN continues to grow as a lifestyle, online magazine run by students of SUNY Plattsburgh. As the publication increases in content and diversity, so does its staff. We are joined by five new staff members this semester, each bringing their own creativity, admirations and voice into the APN family.
As we try to incorporate more audio and video into the publication, we urge our readers to listen and participate. APN is working on extending its demographics to those who seek more visual stories.
APN continues to explore all that life has to give us, put it into words and share it with all of our avid and new readers. Visit us every week and read the APN’s lifestyle guide.
