Reading Time: < 1 minute

Manipal is a town where change is the only constant. Whether it’s new courses being introduced, fresh faces joining the student population or unfamiliar buildings rising like modern megaliths into the sky, students seldom return from summer vacation to find everything the way they left it.

The Manipal Journal is back this semester with a new team and new ideas, but with the old resolve and determination to bring you solid stories as they happen. A warm welcome to our regular readers; we hope that you will remain as involved as you have always been, and send us your photos, blogs, comments and feedback. To our new readers, we hope that will you enjoy discovering Manipal’s diversity through our coverage and join the ranks of our loyal readers.

Expect a few surprises as we approach TMJ’s fourth anniversary on September 3. It’s been an eventful journey for the website as it passed each year from the hands of one passionate team to another, and the members have always worked towards honest and unbiased journalism. In an age where the media has been dubbed as unethical and sensational, TMJ aims to break that stereotype, and bring forth unvarnished news pertaining to our readers.
