Welcome back Otters!
My name is Jenna Ethridge and I would like to formally introduce myself as this year’s editor-in-chief of The Lutrinae. I served as former Editor-in-Chief Jessenya Guerra’s assistant editor last year and am also the columnist of Music Maven. I am a third-year human communications major with a concentration in journalism and media studies.
I have been involved with yearbook and newspaper publications since my junior year of high school. Writing has provided me with a method of self-expression that I believe reflects my truest intentions and capabilities, while also reaching a wider audience than I could on my own.
During my time as assistant editor, I experienced incredible growth as a journalist, student and leader. I take great pride in The Lutrinae and its role on California State University, Monterey Bay’s (CSUMB) campus in providing students with a platform to improve their journalistic writing through authentic experience.
As students of CSUMB, I urge you to interact with The Lutrinae and all it has to offer: news, opinion, columns, sports, games, creative works, photography and student leadership. Our staff is dedicated to sharing the most accurate, relatable and entertaining content with our peers.
Thank you for all of your continued support, words cannot express how excited I am to continue The Lutrinae’s legacy. I wish you all a successful and enjoyable Fall 2019 semester!
Editor-in-Chief of The Lutrinae
