Editor-in-Chief, Julio Rodriguez, welcomes the student body for the start of the Fall 2017 semester.

Dear HVCC students,

Welcome to all of the newly-minted Vikings. I extend an invitation to all incoming students to join and participate in the shared productivity of our club.

The Hudsonian provides an outlet for students to meet some new friends, write stories, take photos and earn money in the process. We’re looking for new writers, photographers and editors.

You too can be a small part of the Hud family, but you have to put yourself out there. The Hudsonian can be your home for the next two years if you are willing to put in the work.

College is made of moments. Good, bad and ugly ones. As that may be, your time at HVCC is a special time that you should cherish and look back on with pride.

I encourage you to join a club on campus and try new things. After all, isn’t that what college is all about?

You do not need any past experience in journalism to join the club. Anyone with a passion for writing or photography is more than welcome to take part.

“It is the policy of Hudson Valley Community College, through the publication of The Hudsonian, to keep the campus informed of school and local news and events. The main objective of The Hudsonian is to inform the HVCC community and teach students how to report news and publish a newspaper, in accordance with generally accepted journalistic principles.” – Constitution of The Hudsonian

In the past, The Hudsonian was recognized as a top two-year periodical in the nation. Last spring, the newspaper received third place honors nationally at the College Media Association National College Media Convention in New York, New York on March 14, 2017.

In 2015, the paper placed ninth overall in the newly-expanded category for two-year college newspapers in Austin, Texas. There were more than 50 entries in the category. In 2014, The Hudsonian placed fourth in the competition for two-year school tabloids.

If the above sounds appealing, please attend our meetings to learn more.

You can meet all of us at our weekly meetings every Monday in ADM 107 at 2:00 p.m.

I hope to see you all there,

Julio Rodriguez
