You may notice the Feb. 23 print edition of The Daily Tar Heel is a new size. It’s a time of monumental change for the DTH. The old ways of operating are no longer working, and we’re slowly figuring out how to navigate a changing media world. The current staff is learning how to be flexible.
We started this year with a different website and different print product. In August we had no idea which direction we would take, so we learned to roll with the punches.
We’re also moving offices. Thanks to the internet we can largely work remotely when pressed, but the importance of having a central location cannot be understated. The office is a place to come together, to call home and to work and create memories.
Today, this edition of the DTH was produced in less than ideal conditions. Our stuff is still being moved, and there isn’t internet in the new office, so we’re currently operating out of the basement of Carroll Hall. We’re moving into our new location soon, but this past week the staff has put out the news from all over campus.
All of this change also comes during a time of celebration, which is fitting for the DTH. Whenever this paper has faced a challenge, we've done it with humor and without fear — celebrating surviving even the toughest of times by going to Linda's.
