Five minutes. That’s all the time it takes for a thief to shatter a car window, grab what they can from the inside and flee the scene before Campus Safety can even respond to the incident. Car break-ins and some auto theft have increased on campus over the past month. Shattered glass in UP lots tells the story — if the car is still there.
President Robert Kelly has appointed Kate Cuadrado as editor-in-chief of The Beacon for the 2023-24 academic year. Cuadrado, a junior English major, began working for The Beacon during the spring semester of her freshman year, joining the staff as a news reporter. After working for a semester the following year as the sports editor, she became the news and managing editor, her current role. Cuadrado’s interest in journalism not only inspired her to work for The Beacon, but it also guided her to apply for the role as editor-in-chief. She sees this as an opportunity to expand her role and journalistic work as the head of the University’s student-run newspaper.
