May 15 2012: Signing off for the semester
As the semester nears an end and the student town gets busy with academic work, it also signifies the time for the TMJ team to take a break from reporting and get back to the everyday life of a student. As we look back at this semester that went by, it gives us immense pleasure to look at the dedicated efforts that TMJ has put across these four months, working together as a team.
Manipal witnessed an unprecedented set of events this semester, showing the new spirit of the student body and its strength in unity bringing about changes in administration. TMJ provided its readers with day to day reports of the events, with March 15 proving to be an important date in TMJ history with the site crossing the 12,000 mark of daily story-views and creating an all-time high record. Through this we realised more and more people were reading TMJ and going through the kind of work we were doing. It has only encouraged us to strive for more and work harder.
The new team having taken over from the previous team this semester feel the sense of responsibility entrusted upon them by their predecessors and the objective reporting that the site has produced during their term. The site has taken a leap in every semester after they took over and their dedication has only inspired us all in TMJ.
We will be back with fresh stories, reports and features next semester and the website will go live on August 1. The coming semester is going to be special as our news portal turns five. We aim to make this site better than before and hope to implement some changes soon.
Happy vacations to one and all.
