Journalism has the ability to uncover, to elucidate, and to share a variety of viewpoints and truths. As Daily writers, we think that sharing viewpoints that are not often heard, or that often get drowned out or outright silenced, is of particular importance. And as science students, we are particularly interested in writing and reading about research. We're charmed by the goings-on inside cells, by the workings of subatomic particles, by the way that the sky lights up all on its own when we're far, far away from the city. We think that rational, calculated measurements of the world have the ability to deepen our understanding of it, and of ourselves.
