Adviser's Greeting

Welcome to Student Media at Appalachian State University. Your time spent here will be a chance to grow and learn from each other, to develop skills and confidence as future media employees through the real life experiences you will have, and to learn some difficult lessons through your mistakes.

As you begin or continue your work at The Appalachian or The Peel, you may find it a frightening place to work. Certainly, most others have. But let go of your fears, let go of your ego a bit, and remember, it is absolutely the best place to learn skills associated with professional media work. Your efforts will bring about a much better informed and educated university community. May you grow and learn much, at your own pace, for what you give to the newspaper, the literary arts journal and others you work with, so shall you receive. Welcome to the Student Media experience!
