Hello! My name is Ashley Orcutt and I am the editor in chief of The Lutrinae. I am excited to welcome everyone to CSUMB’s newest publication. Originally, the newspaper was named The Otter Realm, but since we transitioned out of academic affairs into student affairs, we decided to totally reimagine this newspaper. With our creative team, we came up with the name The Lutrinae, which is the scientific term of the otter. We thought this unique name would help bring out the new look and design of our paper, which has a more modern feel than previously.
In this paper, we hope to share a variety of stories about CSUMB, along with the communities of Marina and Seaside. We hope to share stories on entertainment, news, sports, and opinions, as well as sharing columns and creative works written by other students and faculty. The goal of this paper is to give everyone a voice, throughout our campus and surrounding communities, about issues or events that are going on.
If anyone from CSUMB wants to submit any story ideas, columns, or creative works, they are free to do so. Please visit thelutrinae.com for details on how to submit your work.
I am excited that we are finally published and can’t wait for many more future issues of The Lutrinae.
