We’re beginning our new rotation of columnists, and I look forward to sharing their first pieces over the next four weeks.
Early September’s a busy time, on campus and off. Around the U of W, halls are more crowded, bookstore lineups stretch out longer, and pudding seems to be flying off the shelves in Riddell Hall.
We’re back for another amazing year at The Uniter - it’s our 72nd, if you’re counting human or newspaper years, and our 14th, if you’re counting dog years. This is our annual back-to-school issue, so we thought we’d go for a lighter-hearted, upbeat cover story.
When it comes to summer festivals, we have an abundance of choice here in Manitoba.
This, our last regular-ish paper of the year, is somewhat unconventional.
We’re hiring another position for the fall – and perhaps some of you are wondering, “Why does The Uniter hire so often? Is there some nasty secret here in the basement of the Bulman Centre that drives aspiring writers and journalists away?”
Certain story topics may seem frivolous or unserious at first glance. But our job at The Uniter is to look beyond the superficial and to inform readers about the deeper meaning and wider impacts of the stories we tell, while also enjoying the work we put into telling them.
It may seem a little early to be thinking about the fall, but we are. We’re currently hiring for five positions that will start in late August of 2017.
On the cover this week, we’re exploring more unconventional approaches to learning, but the dialogue around how we learn inside and outside of the classroom continues throughout this issue.
Welcome to our special online-only reading week issue of The Uniter!
These days, the line between our online and “real” lives can get more and more blurry.
Learning is rarely a solitary practice, even though we’ve come to believe that it is.
Culture can mean art, but it also includes beliefs, ways of life, patterns of thinking and all the behaviours specific to a smaller or larger group. But let’s leave the defining to the dictionary - why are we so focused on covering culture at The Uniter?
We can’t control the weather, but what can we do about our human environment? We’re living in a time of unprecedented social and cultural change. But ultimately, we are all responsible for the world we live in and create through our everyday interactions.
Welcome to our new music issue!
Wondering what that giant number five floating through the paper over the last few weeks is all about?
Whether you love or loathe resolutions, the idea of a fresh start, or finding a seasonal motivation to begin new projects, has its allure.
In this issue, we took our directives from you, the readers. The Uniter 30 showcases the winners from our annual readers poll – winners chosen by you!
Whether it’s to help those in their immediate circle, or those halfway across the world, many Winnipeggers are doing their part to make a difference in this world
The Uniter is run by the Mouseland Press and governed by a volunteer board. The board is a great place to bring visionary ideas for the future of the paper and to practice the skills needed to run a non-profit organization.
