The Dig Editorial Staff

The Dig is your student-run, student-edited, and student-published newspaper. We have fought hard to remain this way so we can serve as a platform for student voices, communal changes, and action. The current state of racial injustice both in America and in our own institution is unacceptable. The Dig stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and we are committed to using our platform to inspire action in any way possible by uplifting student voices.
