This is my first edition of SCAN as Editorin-Chief.

I won’t lie, it’s been stressful trying

to organise everything as someone who has

ADHD.

I’m proud of myself for getting everything

ready for Fresher’s Week. With that, I want to

say a massive thank you to SCAN’s secretary,

Ella Smith, for doing the admin things I was

dreading on doing.

I’m going into my final year at Lancaster. It

feels bittersweet. I’m excited to lead SCAN but

this is my final year studying at this fantastic

university.

I’ve spent my whole

summer getting together

the editorial team for this

year. I’m really excited to

see them all flourish and

edit!

It would be wrong for me not to mention the

amazing Maria Hill. They have been through it all

with me, and has shown me the potential have for

this year.

On another note, SCAN

has been meeting

with the other media

societies (Bailrigg FM,

Take2Cinema, and LA1TV).

As Editor-in-Chief, I’m

thrilled to be doing more

collaborative events with

them.

My main goal for SCAN is to show people how

fun journalism can be. Since joining SCAN, I have

found a hidden passion for journalism that I still

try to pretend doesn’t exist.

Quick thank you Bailrigg

FM for creating an article

for this issue. It was so fun

to work with both Erin and

Jake.

I’d also like to thank my boyfriend, Oli, for dealing

with me being stressed. If it wasn’t for him, some

articles wouldn’t exist. One that comes to my mind

is the recipe article. He’s an amazing chef and

helped me create a few recipes.

Finally, I would like to

thank everyone who

has helped create this

Fresher’s Issue. It’d be

impossible to do it all

on my own. You’re all

amazing writers and

editors.

As it’s a new year, we would love to see new faces

as writers, photographers, illustrators, graphic

designers, website designers, and more. If SCAN is

something you might be interested in...
