   When I first arrived at Ewha, one of my first impressions of the campus came from the Ewha Voice. Much of the content reflected that of my university's newspaper, The GW Hatchet.The Voice does an excellent job printing professional articles, which are pertinent to the lives of Ewha students. I was particularly impressed with each of the "Theme" sections. However, one component is lacking in the Voice - innovation.
   Student newspapers are essential to fostering positive change on campus.The Voice has the duty of providing an outlet for students to express their opinions. To help give students a venue to create change, the editorial/opinion page should not only be expanded to include more articles, but it should also include ones that are willing to shake things up, and which motivate students and faculty to implement change on campus. Furthermore, the Voice should consider including a "Letters to the Editor" section, which will allow students to react to specific articles.
   While the guest contributions and letters by professors offer meaningful, outside opinions, the Ewha Voice does not provide enough opinion section for its own students. Instead of simply stating reactions, the Voice should use this section to print more critical reviews on how the campus or society can be changed. For example, in the previous issue, an article mentioned that university officials should include students in the decision to merge the Human Ecology department, but the Voice should demand to know why it did not. The reporting within the Voice is diverse and high-quality, but by making the paper a powerful forum for all students, the Voice could offer more meaningful and engaging reading material for its readers.
