From the Editors

Dear Readers,

With our unique position at MIT, we are intensely mindful of The Tech's responsibility to serve our readers accountably and to keep striving to improve our coverage. Next semester, Christine R. Fry '05 will replace Nathan Collins G as editor in chief, but our efforts to deliver a high-quality newspaper will continue.

Here is an update on some improvements we have undertaken this semester and are planning for next semester.

The Tech is just a student group pledged to find out the truth and report it back to our readers. The people who work on it, few as we are, live down the hall from you and work on your behalf. We're proud of our reporting this past semester - and proud of our top-ranked status among American college newspapers, judged by the Associated Collegiate Press - but our real goal is to earn your respect and deliver quality news, and we will continue working toward those ends. Let us know how we can help.

P.S. Did we mention we're desperate for reporters and features writers? Join us next year or write for our monthly summer issues.
