Student editors relax, celebrate at Casa María

The Rattler Editorial staff, spring 2010

The editorial staff of The Rattler, the student newspaper of St. Mary’s University, enjoyed a quick break away from the newsroom during ‘press weekend’ to have dinner at the Casa María Marianist community. ‘Press weekend’ refers to the time when the staff produces the upcoming issue, which runs over the course of three days—Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The staff also celebrated the birthdays of two editors—Sarah Mills, editor-in-chief, and Alexis Alvarez, copy editor.

Spending time together outside of the newsroom helps The Rattler staff build community with one another, develop positive relationships and foster a team-oriented attitude—characteristics necessary to meet a common, deadline-driven goal.

The first issue of 2010 hits campus newsstands on Wed., Jan. 27. Visit stmurattlernews.com and follow their tweets @StMURattlerNews.
